Really looking forward to Zelda!

Title isn't great considering how underpowered this thing is.

You can buy Switch from any Region and make an account of any Region, right?

For instance I bought a JPN Switch, make a US account and use it as if I bought it in US?

Never has buying a console at launch for one game been as sweet as this. Pumped for the weekend.

Once every few years I get to experience the magic of a new Nintendo system. There's just something about it to me that's unmatched. Maybe because I grew up on NES/SNES? Either way, hype is off the charts and I am just one very long work day from getting a Switch and Zelda.

This is the first console I will EVER be playing on Day 1, which is pretty crazy because I always tend to snatch up Nintendo consoles ASAP.

Slight disclaimer is that I actually did buy a GameCube at a launch night event, but it then went into a closet for an interminable wait until Christmas morning. This is the second time I'm actually getting a console at launch, but first time I get to crack it open as well :'D

Will hopefully be able to pick one up in Ireland next week.

Was going to delay, but I'm so high after playing Zelda that I feel like Nintendo deserve my money and support. (And I deserve a better quality Zelda experience, lol)

I just wish it was stronger in docked mode. Zelda is one of the first Nintendo games I've played where 'This game would be a lot better on stronger hardware' was a reoccuring thought, so the fact that the new machine can't even do it in 1080p as a console releasing in 2017 is very disappointing.

It looks good on the Wii U gamepad, though, so at 720p on a much better screen I'm sure it'll be dynamite portably. And that's what I'm excited most for with the Swich. The portability of amazing console games.

Underpowered compared to a high end PC or the PS4.
Thankfully most Nintendo fans don't bother trying to compete with those. It's not trying to match them in power.

My friend is going to be in Spain, Barcelona to be exact, couple days after launch. Anyone from Spain-GAF know where he might be able to pick up a couple of Switchs or if there will be shortages? We've never been there before, so don't know of any retailers.

It's 11:16PM local time, 3.2.17.

Waking up tommorow, driving my wife to work, then going straight to the mall to pick up my preorder (I took the day off). I invited my Nintendo-skeptical friend over so we can check out the new hardware over pizza and beer.

Bomberman R, Zelda, Fast RMX, Snipperclips - tommorow's gonna be glorious!

Got it delivered early, and while I wait for Zelda to arrive tomorrow I played around in the home menu a bit, and downloaded a bunch of demos off the japanese store.
So far the wifi chip doesn't seem to be too great, it keeps dropping the connection to the router for me, while my ps4 right next to the switch has a signal strength of 80%, the switch only has one out of three bars. I also ran into the left joycon problems a couple of times while trying out Dragon Quest Heroes being roughly two meters from the system itself. Other than that I love the Home menu, it's snappy and fast, docking and undocking is almost instant, and the joycons, even using them sideways as single joycons feel good to hold and play with. I vastly prefer using one in each hand over the grip, though. The grip feels just a bit too small for my taste.

GAME, Fnac and MediaMarkt are probably the most common bets

Going to GAME for 10am to pick up my pre purchased goodies.

Switch (grey)
Zelda
Bomberman
Case

Then go home, update, download Shovel Knight, have a quick mess around before I have to leave. Really looking forward to tomorrow night when I can finally boot up Zelda and get absorbed in it.

It's so surreal that it is actually tomorrow. We made it GAF!
