As someone who never got to play Skyrim, I'm definitely interested in picking it up. Might even have finished BotW by the time it comes out...
Ever since joining the original ONM I've been a huge Nintendo fan (specifically Zelda) and am looking forward to some great discussions. I was previously known as Lego Master

Already got the game on PS4 and I did enjoy it I never completed it so I may go for it for the portability and Nintendo extras.

Yeah, they said the same thing about the (now discontinued) Wii U. Time is up for the 3DS. They've some new hardware coming out (new 2DS XL) and a few new games to finish up, but no one starting a development project now is going to be targeting the 3DS.

Doesn't surprise me really, Nintendo aren't going to throw away a 50 million+ userbase yet.

So now the Switch can grab friends from your WiiU and 3DS lists through recommendations, there's going to be a few more friends added to my Switch soon. Major update 3.0.0 released.

Like the implementation of finding friends across different devices, not sure if I like the more rumble-y vibration of the joy-cons. For me, when they do vibrate it cause quite an audible sound, especially if they're connected to the console itself

So the other day my Switch wouldn't connect to the internet, I figured it was just my eton mess net, but no, it's still not working. It just will not connect to the internet. It recognises the router, and lets me setup the connection, but it just refuses to connect. Anyone else experiencing this problem? Anyone know how to fix it?

On first set up my Switch wouldn't connect to my router (my 3DS has never been able to connect to it, it doesn't play nice with Nintendo). I had to create a new access point without any security to connect to, download the day 1 system update, and then it worked fine with the original router setup.

Probably unhelpful, but try connecting to somewhere else and see if that fixes it?

At least we're past the days where I had to use a Nintendo usb dongle to get my DS and Wii online

What a kek

I tried for like half an hour and nothing worked. I decided to just play zelda instead and then it just connected, so idk wtf's going on with it. I swear it's been like this since launch tho, it's just unpredictable when connecting to the net.

The wireless on it is crap. It doesn't help that the USB3 dock isn't shielded properly and throws a ton of interference on 2.4Ghz bands. You can try 5Ghz or wired, but yeah it just has problems, hopefully most of the flaky wifi/bluetooth problems get sorted with more system updates

I found the exact same issue when I first got my Wii U (so probably not directly related, unless they're using the same wireless card inside both consoles), sometimes it'd connect but most of the time it just wouldn't unless it was a metre or 2 away from the router, then one day (after I'd rejigged the setup under my TV) it worked, all the time and I haven't touched it (other than to dust it) in the fear I may knock it out of the sweet spot I seem to have found.

Maybe Nintendo just don't seem to use top quality wireless cards? My Wii and both 3DS systems have been trouble free so I have no idea.

Just seen on NeoGaf that the Switch has sold 4.7 million units already, no idea how that compares to the Wii U after just over 4 months on sale but it wouldn't surprise me if it's better already. Just a shame it's out of stock in a lot of places.

Edit, just ordered (well ordered for when the next batch arrives) my Switch on the Nintendo store. Just wondered (the estimated dispatch is 18/08 so a bit of time yet) whether any of you are using screen protectors and if so which ones? Would you reccomend it? Which case are some of you using as well? Was thinking of going for this screen protector and then the Nintendo branded Splatoon 2 case. Any other must have accessories for it? Definitely going to stick with the joy cons for a bit before deciding if I need a pro controller or not, £60 is a decent amount for something I might not need, could easily buy another game for that). Games wise I'll be getting Zelda, Splatoon 2 for when I get it and then Mario & Rabbids will be launching a couple of weeks later. Now a few weeks to finish Metroid Prime 2 & 3 :D

Considering Wii U sold a bit over 10 million units in about 5 years, yeah suffice to say Switch is doing a lot better; that being said it's 4.7 million shipped as opposed to sold, but considering demand it's certain that pretty much all of those are going to be bought anyway

I was meaning how it compared to the Wii U's first 4 month's, numbers grabbed from Reddit but it seems to be stacking up reasonably well considering the problems people are having getting their hands on one. Wouldn't have been surprised if it had outsold the Wii if they could have met demand.

Wii - 5.84 million units
DS - 5.27 million units
Wii U - 3.45 million units
3DS - 4.32 million units
Switch - 4.70 million units

Also consider that it launched in March and hasn't had its first holiday period yet, and yes it's doing very well.

Indeed, just hope they get the supply issues sorted by Christmas and it should sell a lot with the games coming out for it.
