I would not be surprised if Nintendo goes the way of Sega after this (with the exception of handhelds, although I'd imagine that market is dropping thanks to ipads and the likes) since they have decent I.P and good range of classic titles. Time will tell.

Switch sales are extremely healthy by all accounts, perhaps the only issue they currently have is supplying the demand.
As James mentioned the games will ultimately be a key factor to its ongoing success, but it's been a positive launch.

Welcome to the forum by the way.

Outselling the PS4 in Japan over the same launch window too.

Been playing a lot of Mario Kart 8 and a little Puyo Pop/Tetris with my Switch-owning colleague recently, and I'm really impressed. As I predicted back before launch, the portability and focus on local multiplayer is a huge advantage over traditional set top consoles (which I pretty much never play any more).

I'm not going to take the plunge just yet - can't currently justify the expense, and I'm waiting to see what comes of the indie scene (and especially the Virtual Console side of things) - but I'll definitely be picking a Switch up at some point later in the year. It's a seriously great piece of kit.

I've completed my second Divine Beast and been laughing out loud at some scenes in Gerudo village. I'm gonna chill from the main quest for a while and explore and knock off a few shrines. When did games design get this good?

Oh and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is just grand and Tiny Tips is playing the shit out of King Of Fighters.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

The Switch is better than I hoped it could be.

Loving Wonder Boy: Dragon's Curse. I preferred Monster Land back in the day. Even so, this is tops.

As of now, I own the following

Physical:
Zelda Breath of the Wild
Binding of Isaac
Puyo puyo Tetris
Bomberman R
Street fighter 2 ULTRA

Digital:
Thumper

Bought SF2U and Thumper today. SF2U is what one could expect from a Street fighter game, plus a tacked on waggle fest mini game (am a bit dissapointed in that aspect of the game), but as said, the fighting is solid as can be :)

Thumper is a lightning fast rythm game with some feverish horror stuff thrown in. Heavy and agressive. Hard to explain. Makes really good use of the HD rumble. Here's a trailer for it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n640qUwCEDs

F^&k you Nintendo just take my money!!!!

at last Metroid Prime 4
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nFbDmTjS_MI

and a new 2D Metroid as well
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UhOx-FpEAQk - I just wish this was also on the Switch I dont want a 3DS again :(

looks like Ninty are hitting all the right buttons looking at their E3 line up, new Mario looks great aswell but a new Metroid Prime is just what I've been waiting for, the originals on the Gamecube are probably my favorite games ever (they still look great today).

Yes - some strange goings on in that Mario trailer but looking good to me (anybody remember the game Space Station Silicon Valley, I think it was called on the N64 where you possessed things?).

Time constraints meant I only made it 1/2 way through Metroid Prime so I look forward to trying it again now I have more time (and portability) on my side.

Plus Rogue Trooper! Yay!

Be excellent to each other. And party on!

Quite happy with the Nintendo E3 announcements.

I won't be expecting Metroid Prime 4 anytime before 2019 though.

To me, Nintendo's E3 was rather lovely. Brilliant all the way. Can't wait to play METROID2. Hoping to score that special ed with the soundtrack.

Ordered Cave Story + the other day, and looking forward to The end is nigh as well as a possible physical release of Super Meat Boy.

Will perhaps buy Blade Strangers as well.

I cannot stress it enough how much cool I think it is that it's 2017, and I'm able to buy brilliant 2D games on cartrigdes again. Couldn't afford (and wasn't allowed) either a Super NES or Mega Drive as a kid, but now I'm making up for it  ;)

And in Wii U too-which works for me, as I've no intention of considering Switch until at least Metroid is out! 😀

Been scouting around online today for some upcoming Amiibo releases (I know) and noticed that the Switch seems to be back in stock in Amazon and Game.

Is it too early to contemplate Christmas purchases for those thinking of getting one in December?
Might be best to grab one while you can.

Took the plunge and bought one, with Mario Kart and Zelda.

To say I'm blown away is an understatement.
Zelda is astonishingly good, I just can't put it down!

A fantastic piece of kit, wouldn't be surprised if Sony and Microsoft go down the modular/portable route with their next consoles.

I'm in no hurry, but I'll definitely be picking one up between now and Christmas - Mario Odyssey looks astounding, as does Zelda. Mario Kart is superb. A port of last year's Doom reboot is coming soon, as well as Axiom Verge and Steam World Dig 2. I'd happily rebuy Shovel Knight for all the extra content. Lots of the other Nindies titles look great too.
