hopefully.

but I've noticed this about Nintendo products. Like at my local BB, the 3DS shelf is always empty, and it's been that way for the last several months when I started paying attention.

Don't know if that's a Nintendo thing or a BB thing, but I doubt the 3DS, at this point in its cycle, is flying off the shelves so fast the shelves are empty.

I look at the PS4s and X1s, and there's always a stock of those on the shelves.

Low stock has been Nintendo's gameplan since the NES days. I suppose they think it drives interest in the product if people want it but can't find it? It's not a great strategy in this day and age.

Maybe it works on some people but it would make me think about buying something else. In fact that's exactly what drove me to stop buying exclusively PS consoles when the PS3 was delayed in Europe by 3 months. That gap made me try a 360 and from then on most of my gaming friends have been on Xbox. A risky strategy at best, and when it's done on purpose like it sounds like Nintendo do rather than failing to provide stock when doing your best, it has the potential to put some people off. I also remember hunting for a wii as a xmas present for a kid once and they were impossible to get hold off so we got him something else (not gaming related) and he ended up never getting the wii and grew up with other consoles instead.

Back in the NES days it worked because competition wasn't too tight. Nintendo ruled the scene back then, but now with PS4, Xbone and PC gaming out there Nintendo can't allow consumers to go into a store, realize they can't get Nintendo and then go grab a PS4 or Xbox. That's how Nintendo will lose more than games releases or anything else.

Yeah, pretty much making as many Switchs as they sold Wii Us.

I get that the Switch and Nintendo consoles are a bit different nowadays and not competing for the exact same space as the other 2 but I don't know how much patience people have. Even as a parent how many times are you going to go to a shop and see that the thing is out of stock before you say **** it Jonny you're getting something else.

Nintendo needs to make sure there are plentiful Switch's come the holiday's. That's the make or break IMO.

It's gonna be a HUGE Xmas present this year...no.1 maybe? I reckon Scorpio will be too expensive to be as popular a gift (plus less child friendly). And the stocks need to be there as the desire to buy it as a present isn't the same once Xmas has come and gone and Jonny has already been given something else.

With Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon the Switch will dominate Christmas as long as Nintendo is smart. If they put together some smart bundles they'd do even better methinks.

if Nintendo is indeed using the "low stock-drive up artificial demand" strategy on purpose, then that is indeed a put off for me, just as Iceman stated above.

I wanted to get a Switch at launch to play Zelda. Now, the longer I wait, the more I question that. The Switch is becoming less of a priority and must have. And as more games come out in the next few months, and more consoles later in the year ( Scorpio ), the funds I had marked for a Switch may start going to other things.

and I agree, the Switch has potential to be THE #1 product to buy this Holiday. Provided, however, they have enough stock to meet the demand. Won't do any good if consumers can't buy your product.

Nintendo is conservative. They would rather have shortages than having stock sitting on shelves. Especially post Wii U, where they had to take a big loss on unsold Wii Us. Especially the 8 gig version.

Not surprising. Probably a Splatoon bundle as well in the works.

That Direct was a lot of high highs and low lows. No word on the Virtual Console is moronic on Nintendo's part. Nothing exciting getting released after the Direct on Switch is head scratching too. Arms and Splatoon both showing up before August is nice, but showing off more NeoGeo and Namco Retro Museum stuff felt like a waste of time. Payday2 was a major surprise though.

But BAYONETTA AMIIBOS!!!!

I did like the 3DS updates. Awesome to bet getting Monster Hunter Stories. And was that our first look at the new console Sonic game?

I also fear when I get my Switch, I'm going to have to fight the urge to get all the colors of joycons...

I thought the Direct was pretty underwhelming. I'm not a big Splatoon guy, so I'm just not interested, and I can't believe we still know nothing about the VC. It's ridiculous. Arms could be interesting, so I'll wait to see what people say about it, but I'm just not sure about it yet.

Overall, nothing exciting about the Switch, other than MK8, which I'm not that stoked, since I've played the **** out of it on Wii U. I really thought something about the VC would have been mentioned. Whatever....

My guess is this was underwhelming because they're going all out for E3. I hope that's the case anyway.

Seems to be a safe bet. A lot of this was pretty much Summer releases.
