At first I didn't feel the Neon but now I'm glad I switched from Grey.

The Joycon charging grip is arriving today and while I'm waiting on pins and needles for it I know I'll open it, be like cool and then go sit it down somewhere

New console launches are poison.

Mine should be here in about 14 to 16 hours.

I alternate my playtime between consoles and handhelds maybe 40/60 so having a system that can function as either one is pretty much a dream to me.
And it plays Nintendo games and has an impressive looking list of upcoming Indie games, both of which are largely responsible for keeping me interested in gaming.

It literally says you can only use software on the console that is registered as the active one for downloads for your account. You cannot download or buy software on an not registered console.

You can unregister the console though in the eshop menu.

Does anyone know if game saves are stored on the system or carts themselves? Or if there's a way to save from the cart to the system?

Game saves are always on the system. The carts are read only.

Ahh cool, thanks for the response. Idk what's going on with my order for Zelda and it's apparently not shipping until Tuesday next week, so I may be doing an impulse buy when I go to pick up the system from best buy later.

Friend of mine lives literally 4 doors down. Ordered same day from Amazon, I'm Prime and he's not.

He is currently playing Zelda. I'm at work watching my Royal Mail tracking finally tick over to "On its Way".

Went from being against getting it at launch after watching the full unveiling live with folk here but aggressive preorder trade-in promos in Canada got me to buy into it. Looking forward to putting the console and pro controller through the paces this weekend.

That is if Amazon gets me Zelda tomorrow...

This may be a really dumb question but I haven't followed it much and can't wait to have it in my hands, but both me and my brother will share it. We can have two separate profiles with two separate saves for each game (cartridge and digital), right? My digital purchases will work with his profile on the same Switch, right?

Only 14 hours until I can go to my store, can't wait. Switch, Zelda, 1-2-Switch, and maybe a travel case.

Can someone confirm/infirm whether the dock can be set horizontally rather than standing vertically like it's always shown ?

The cable management cover seems perfect for that, but I haven't seen this aspect mentioned.

Nintendo seems to be sending out Switches to bloggers / vloggers too, probably a good way for social media exposure.

This iJustine seems rather popular with 3million subs and done 3 videos on it, mostly positive stuff. She appeared on my YouTube feed (there are tons, omg how do I stop it because I am afraid of spoilers).

You seem to don't know anything about the Switch at all. I suggest to watch the presentation.

The battery is non-removable but you can use any USB-C power bank
