    they are working on a patch for the controller dropping issue. I wouldn't be to concerned about that. The dropping issue has to do with covering certain areas of the controller.. I wasn't aware that the issue had anything to do with distance.

    Its a new system, if you aren't willing to deal with bugs then don't be an early adopter

    That is just the sad state that the industry is in right now and it shows with software too. They push out shit unfinished and charge full price to beta test, then they fix shit as they please.

    Sounds a lot like a fighting game we discuss here on these forums...

    I feel like the switch was rushed lacking basic functions that other consoles have and the lack of virtual console. But we the assholes that gotta have something on release. We know all the warning signs and we just don't care. We deserve w/e we get tbh

    I'm getting mine at a midnight release. Got a feeling servers will be smacked with everyone downloading that patch at the same time.

    Is it confirmed there is a release patch? If so are there patch notes?

    This Nintendo bruh we ain't getting no notes. There is a day one patch though that unlocks the online at least. Not sure what else is included

    I'm just annoyed I didn't preorder a pro controller at this point because I doubt I will be able to find one on Friday and sounds like the joycon is crap when in the grips.

    Since joycon thing is getting fixed the only thing that really bothers me is that usb slot placement apparently making it impossible go charge in kickstand mode, if that's really the case someone needs sacking.

    Multiplayer sessions should not have to end due to battery when you are playing next to a powerpoint and have a charge cable with you, I've got a couple of workarounds for that in my head already but having to balance that shit on 2 game boxes with a space for the wire will look dumb as shit.

    As for only being able to dock it in one position, fine, I expected low power in comparison to ps4 and xbone anyway, was never an issue to me and as long as I can use a generic SD card as storage I'm fine with that too, I mostly buy physical anyway.

    There was a stand for like $12 on amazon that will solve the problem because it sits it up and conveniently exposes the charge port.

    No it doesn't. They are like $7 on Amazon though. I'll probably snag one at Microcenter over the weekend or something.

    This is nice. Do want. Hopefully it'll show up in a store somewhere later down the line when I'm ready to nab one but if not I'll order it.

    Found this for $6 that's with shipping.

    Edit: Then I find cheaper ones but farther away from me.

    Nintendo has games for ridiculous prices on digital while you can't even use the games on two consoles like it's competition. I don't know what market Nintendo is aiming for but it's most DEFINITELY not the console market

    I'm still getting it but they are lying to their customers if they're claiming it's not replacing the 3ds

    There's currently no way to transfer your save data to other machines. You can only save to the device, not the SD card and you can't move it.

    the thing technically isn't properly out yet.

    Remember memory cards? Where you could take your save data on the go and use it on other machines, like when visiting friends or helping to make tournaments run fast as fuck because you could upload a fully unlocked FG roster and features onto multiple machines+cards?

    What happened to that shit? Or am I just being a grumpy, out-of-touch old gamer again for questioning "modern" design choices?

    dunno if in the near future they will change things.

    obviously they wanted to get the thing out the door so there are niggles and rough edges. it's unfortunate but it seems like they want to get the hardware out there first.

    Oh, I'm just speaking in general. None of the current consoles have anyway to take save data on the go without overcomplicated cloud nonsense or some such.

    The only thing I'm currently angry about is Nintendo's non-existent online infrastructure and policy and Zelda's hard mode being locked behind a DLC paywall.

    People who just want to hate on Nintendo are gonna do what they do regardless.

    PS4 and Wii U save data can be backed up to a USB stick. Are you even trying?

    who cares?
    switch is basically a super portable.

    each person having their own controls, own screen and own save file is great.
    and on top of that not having to monkey around with save data or making new profiles etc. on a shared console. gotta setup controls blah blah blahhhh. none of that.

    i smell a virtual-on reboot.

    Recently I haven't had a need to transfer data via memory card. Besides, didn't people complain before about memory cards to begin with? Before that you saved to the cartridge.

    target sent me an email saying my Switch has shipped and will be here tomorrow by 6pm.

    Funny thing is that they haven't charged me yet. Considering all the shit I've gone through with them if I end up getting the switch for free I will laugh my ass off.

    Got my update from gamestop. Originally was going to get it Monday but looks like I may get it tomorrow after all. Kinda threw off my plan of completing Twilight Princess first. Still need to complete 4 mlre areas first!

    Found a pro controller. One GameStop had extras and they said I could come prepay for it so I did that and can grab it at midnight now. Going to just snag Zelda with it too since I fucked up my preorder from amazon for it.

    I may or may not have a pro controller. If not I'll just swing by Walmart on the way home and try to get lucky.

    No midnight launch for me. :( Gotta wait till 9AM tomorrow to pick up my Switch. No idea how big the line will be. I'm in a small town, so maybe I won't have to wait too long.

    I think he got it from the Japanese eShop. The Switch is region-free, so that opens up a lot of possibilities.
