For $75 it's a no brainer for me & my family.
Battery life would be the only thing. Controllers can be switched and Ive never had(heard of) problems with the NIC.

Nintendo shut down pretty much all exploits with newer revisions of switches so I wouldnt expect anything else. If you want a modded switch youre going to have to find an old one.

I’m looking at grabbing one during the holidays. Should be nice to have while I’m deployed.. I’m not sure what the big deal is about a “pro” though. The battery life will be awful if they go with a high-powered system, and how do you keep that kind of hardware cool? It’s already heat-soaking from your greasy nerd fingers, and putting a fan in there is no good due to the portability portion being important.

The switch is good the way it is as long as they focus on efficiency.

So you're saying that Nintendo is good at securing its consoles against exploits? Can you think of another Nintendo console that has ever not been hacked?

Despite you're username, sometimes you're not so logical!

I have no clue about the Nintendo homebrew scene. Im saying that if youre using homebrew as a way of justifying a new switch thats not a good point.

As I recall, the guys who hacked the gamecube discovered that the secret key that protected the system was "Mario". Then Nintendo changed it on the Wii to something like "Mar1o".

Well it's not just Nintendo, Nvidia was the reason why the switch got hacked in the first place, because Nvidia left a exploit in the Tegra chipset. Which since got fixed in the hardware revision that came out sometime last year.

It's not impossible at this point, just extremely unlikely. Nintendo has beefed up the software side of the protection, while Nvidia fixed the hardware faults.

Except MACS don't revise/change during the end of a useful life cycle. They change/revise whenever they say its time, and that's the law you follow!

Witcher 3 complete edition will hit Switch on Oct 15

Some info from TechSpot:
At any rate, if you've never played The Witcher 3 before or you have but want to experience it in a new way, feel free to pre-order a Switch copy for yourself. Physical editions of the port will run you a full $60, but don't scoff just yet. In true CD Projekt Red fashion, you'll get several extra goodies for your money.

For starters, that $60 nets you the Complete Edition of the game, which includes both expansion packs: Blood and Wine and Hearts of Stone. The packs are ordinarily priced at $20 and $10 respectively. Additionally, physical copies of the port will include a Witcher Universe: Compendium lore booklet, a stylized paper world map, and some free stickers.

It looks like **** obviously, but on handheld mode it doesn't look too bad, especially considering the hardware and the game involved.

The battle speed settings in the switch version of DQ is VERY NICE!

I really wish the pc/ps4 version had it, vanilla DQ 11 is so slow and clunky.

The music still sucks though, real instruments or not, I still ****ing hate the battle music and field theme.

I wish you could share save games between switch & xbox/ps4. It'd be great for Witcher3.

Sadly with how famous that music is in Japan it's never going to change, and while I agree it still sucks, it doesn't suck as much as the midi version. OMFG I wanted to tear my ears off.
