Console bundles have been getting a lot of coverage lately, with Microsoft and Sony in particular offering major deals on Xbox One and PSVR bundles this month. The new Xbox One PUBG bundle is already discounted from $299.99 to $249, after only being on the market for a few days. An Xbox One Madden NFL 18 bundle is down to $229.99 now that football season is over. All PSVR bundles are discounted $100 until March 3. When it comes to Nintendo Switch bundles, pretty much anything you can get is better than nothing. Grab a free travel case when you pick up the Switch at Walmart.
Also, unlike some other cases, the Hori Tough Pouch strikes a gentle balance between protection and convenience. Because you only put your Switch into it when you’re done playing, it doesn’t change how you grip the console or its Joy-Con controllers.
Nice graphics, an amazing launch title with The Legend of Zelda: BOTW and the possibility of more great titles from Nintendo. The perfect platform for indie games. It feels good in the hands when not using the controllers separately. It appears to be well built besides the screen fragility. However it does have some serious issues. The battery life is mediocre to terrible, the screen can be scratched from the dock, you can’t transfer saves, and the online functionality social aspect is very weak. Nintendo is terrible with anything to do with online functions besides downloading games or charging you money. The framerate in docked mode is worse in some games that it is in handheld mode.
Unfortunately, there’s not too many other details unveiled at this time when to the sequel. However, we do know that the game will launch on the PC, PlayStation 4, Nintendo 3DS, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch platforms.
Polygon’s sister site The Verge reported that the Asus Mixed Reality headset is now available for pre-order in the US. At $429, it’s definitely on the more expensive end of Windows’ VR offerings, but it does come with two motion controllers which offsets the price a little.
If you don’t want to be part of mad dash to snag one at local stores, here are some places that are still selling the Switch and its goodies online. Many of them have much higher prices than you might find at your local store, though.
The Nintendo Switch released to a ton of hype, both good and bad, but I’ve been very happy with it since getting mine. It’s solid at what it does; convenient, portable gaming that still lets you relax in front of your big screen. This isn’t you mainstream console competitor, it isn’t going to have all the AAA titles that the Xbox and PlayStation get, but it will have the unique appeal that Nintendo always manages to bring to its brand. I bought it so that my kids could share in multiplayer games like SnipperClips and Mario Kart wherever we are, from the living room to the car, and it’s great at that.
In this case, you’ve got two choices: buy another pair of Joy-Con, or buy a Nintendo Switch Pro controller. We’d suggest the latter: It’s a far more traditional gamepad, thus offering you a second option when you’re playing on the TV as well as solving the multiplayer problem, and it costs $10 less than buying a second pair of Joy-Con.
If you plan to buy a lot of the Switch Game Cards, you can either keep the games stored in their not-quite pocketable cases, or you can look into a $10 Game Card Case that lets you keep your whole library in one compact place.
