    Like a Nintendo console has been anything but in the last 10 years. Zelda looks cool, but that is really it.

    The feeling is that a lot of the Switch's launch window lineup is going to consist of Smash, MK8 (which is up on youtube apparently), and some of the Wii U -> Switch projects so Nintendo didn't want the presentation to feel like a "Wii U 2.0" and separate Switch a bit, even if it meant taking a hit on the initial feedback.

    I don't agree with it, as I really wanted them to have a strong launch set-up, but I can understand their thought process with going this way.

    As per the online stuff and smaller details, some of it has dripped out online without an "announcement" and im betting that a lot more details will be available through these events theyre holding over the next few weeks.

    Not Nintendo's best direct, in reflecting on it. Spent too much time on the tech demo titles and could have showcased some of their trouble points (like how local multiplayer worked or showing a mock online match in Splatoon 2), but there were enough hidden surprises (like I Am Setsuna, possible FZero, etc) along with some strong additional titles (Xenoblade 2, Fire Emblem Warriors) that I wouldn't get on my PS4 to warrant a purchase.

    Thats said, really miffed about how they handled pre-orders. Especially with Zelda. Having the presentation close with saying "Jan 21st" and then everything dropping a few hours later, coupled with the announcement of the special Zelda editions outside of the conference just is aggravating that the scalpers get to enjoy it more than the fans.

    This is fucking highway robbery. The strong yen is no excuse for this shit, I can't believe more people aren't up in arms over these "values".

    Yeeup.

    Managed to snag a console pre-order at target, but they can't guarantee delivery until the 9th and it is unavailable for store pickup. Going to hold onto it until Amazon lets me know they finally have more in stock.

    Where did that come from? Cause when I googled it earlier today, the only articles I saw were in reference to preorders in Japan.

    I don't get why people are so confused about it; he said preorders in Japan open up on the 21st, no mention on other territories.

    I'm excited to see what comes down the pipe but there's no way I'm buying this at launch. I'm going to try to snag the Master Edition of Zelda for collecting purposes and maybe pick up the WiiU version on launch otherwise I'll wait entirely and play BotW later in the year.

    Kneeslapper.

    Famitsu confirms Neo Geo titles will be on Switch VC. This could potentially be huge with the announced online multiplayer with VC titles.

    So did pre orders go up on amazon also? I'm too lazy for this lack luster system to pre order it any other way. I already have Zelda pre ordered for my WiiU
