I know if I were looking at a potentially long time stuck in the house my console of choice would definitely be one designed to take with you on the go.
Or if you’re quarantined with your family the one you can still keep playing and not hog the living room TV.

This is somewhat true though. Who doesn't have multiple tvs? For the price of a switch with a game you could probably buy another too.
Yeah but then you have to go to the bedroom or somewhere else instead of playing on the big living room TV and sticking around on the couch chilling with your game when the time comes. Multiple TVs is what multiple Switch docks are for :lollipop_sunglasses:

Been like this in the UK since Christmas. A little trickle once a month, but that's it.

We had a big backlog of Lites (Because they sell like shit here), but even those have gone now.

Depends on your use case and what games you like. Its perfect for my daughter for example.
Only instance a switch would be the wisest option when TVs aren’t plentiful. The other devices are cheaper, more powerful and have cheaper libraries. And in the case of gamespass... that’s all you need.

Keep in mind I will always think the switch is a rip-off comparatively.

games? Eh... I don’t buy that either.

PS4 and Xbox still the better value.
Depends on what you value. As an owner of a PS4 and a PC with a 1080ti in it, I'd say the only advantage the PS4 has over the Switch is raw graphical grunt. The Switch gets way more of my playing time than my PS4 because for me, it's a more convenient console with a better game library.

These days, Ring Fit Adventure is an extremely valuable game, for example.

Check Target.com for the neon Switch for in store pick up and see if your local store got any, many got some in today. If you can just get to the store when they open you've probably got a better chance of actually getting one. I'm pretty sure they will sell to anyone asking for one in store, so if you do the pick up in store online order, you have to hope there are still any left by the time they actually process the order.


Hurrrry.

Oh, the "our console is so popular we just can't make enough!" advertising campaign from Nintendo again
I wouldnt put it past them (or any of the big 3) but I think with Coronavirus plus Animal Crossing, they're legit low on stock.

Edit: Yeah I'm not going to get the one I just put in an order for. I'm watching stock at my local store and it went from 5 down to 1 in the last 20 minutes. Aaaaand they're gone. Sheesh.
