    I'm a little miffed there's no pre-orders on the pro controller. Every other accessory is available for pre-order, but not that. I'd like to start paying down that $70 price tag asap.

    But that isn't when he said it. That is the point. He said it a week ago. It wasn't when Iwata passed. IT was during the Switch event. This isn't something we need to wait and see on. They said it is a console first and foremost. It is how they are selling it now. Why bring up Iwata's passing, when it is irrelevant when we have info from the Switch launch event from the same man?

    You are bring up Iwata as if Reggie said this because he was trying to calm nerves. But this was a week ago. This wasn't about calming nerves, it was about how they are position the Switch right before launch. As a console.

    I honestly can't make this out.

    I wouldn't say it was about calming nerse . I'm just saying it wasn't the first time. it was supposed to have been about still be some sort of console from the jump. I was stating was alsways he case. befoe the scare and afterwards . post raggiesis post and has nothing to do with the scare and neather di iwata's talk about befor the name switch ever came to be and pre scare.
    it's probably cause I'm in raged, some what and that's never good so it's best for to let go since I 'vebeen popping them pills. so I'm gonna stop thinking about certain things now.

    there other thing's for me to do and it's not helping this thread.

    I'm fairly positive Best Buy is about to cancel my pre-order for the Switch. I went to update the payment information on the order, since I have a new card with a new expiry date, and after I did so, the order status changed from "in progress" to "order created". That is less than inspiring. Looking it up, I've seen complaints about this in the past, where online retailers treat a payment information change like a cancellation. In that, they cancel the existing order, and then attempt to re-create a new one with the updated information. If that happens, that will definitely be a problem here. I should have looked this up beforehand, but I didn't expect there to be an issue with changing methods of payment in an online order in 2017.

    Either way, live and learn. I'm going to live, and they're going to learn.

    if there;s one near you ,I make the orders ether in person or try amazon when I do that. with ebgames/game stop & best buy I do them in person. or when those fail then amazon by online. the latter is the only one I do with online pre orders. the other I do in store.

    The only way I could have pre-ordered the Switch in person was if I waited outside the store before it opened on the 13th. And that wasn't going to happen. I want the Switch, sure, but not enough to actually get up and go outside.

    Well, pre-orders for the Pro Controller opened up. So, I bit the $90 bullet and grabbed one. There's still a pretty good chance I'll cancel it before March 3, but I figured I'd get one locked down in case I came into an inheritance or something.

    Edit: Also, my pre-order for the Switch itself seems to have remained intact, so that's a plus. Otherwise it would be kinda dumb to order a controller for a console I lost my order for. Unless I really like that controller. It's ok, I guess.

    I was sadly underwhelmed by the Switch presentation. Hoping that down the line will get some good Nintendo games and good 3rd party support.

    I'm actually looking forward to I Am Setsuna on the Switch. I wanted to play it on PS4, but never got around to it. With the game coming to my brand new Switch I have a perfect excuse to buy it.

    The Pro Controller is available to pre-order in some places. GameStop has them. I went in this morning to pre-order mine and while I was there I saw they had the NES Classic in stock. You bet your ass I snagged one. It's a fun, genius product Nintendo put together. I'd kill for a SNES classic though.

    I'm going to have to sit on my porch and wait for the Switch to be delivered on the 3rd. It's being shipped by Best Buy, and they mark all their shipments as "Do Not Safe Drop", meaning that it gets sent to the nearest post office if no one is home to receive it. However, Canada Post has a habit of "missing" (read: ignoring) that instruction. So they end up leaving packages on the front step, exposed to the elements, coyotes, roving gangs, etc. If that happens with the Switch, people are going to start dropping.

    My Switch order has been a roller coaster from start to finish.

    Nintendo reveals tech specificiations for Switch including size, weight, replaceable battery

    Posted on January 30, 2017
    [​IMG]



    We are now less than five weeks out from the launch of the Nintendo Switch, so Nintendo UK has unveiled an official list of the technical specifications for the hybrid console. Nintendo is still keeping some of the exact specifications to themselves (the CPU/GPU is just listed as “Nvidia Customised Tegra Processor”), but now we have a much better idea about how the Switch will perform under pressure.
    Probably the biggest piece of new information we were provided about the Switch’s prowess is its battery life. The console will feature a max battery life of six hours in Handheld Mode, though some games may tax the battery a bit more. Nintendo included the example of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which will be playable for three hours with a full charge. Nintendo also shared that the Switch’s battery is fully replaceable, though it must be installed by the consolemaker themselves through the Nintendo Customer Support service.
    The console will also output video at 1080p (720p in Handheld Mode) and require a “Day One” update to enable the use of MicroSDXC Memory Cards.
    A full rundown of the Nintendo Switch’s technical specifications can be found after the break.

    I'm hoping my GameStop does a midnight release. I'll be there to pick it up on March 2nd.
