Once we know the important stuff (price, launch games, 2017 games, availability lol) then as with every other product one same question needs answering:

"Do you want to buy a Nintendo Switch at launch?"

If your answer is 'yes', then buy it. If your answer is 'no', then do not buy it.

There will be reviews for both the hardware and software as well as many previews over the next few months. Everyone should be able to make a fully informed purchase, and subsequently we shouldn't need to have the trite "grr I'm so burned by my fully informed purchase!" like people have literally no self-control.

I'm not buying at launch, though I look forward to March nevertheless for peoples' thoughts on it and hoping that most people are happy.

And I'd also like to buy BoTW Wi U ASAP so if that releases in March too then yay.

Will probably get it for Christmas or in mid 2018 if the price is confirmed to be no more than 250e (for the basic pack) and it gets decent western 3rd party support.

I'm not going to buy it at launch, but I may buy it later if Nintendo proves that they can properly support the Switch by releasing more games and having third party games.

The January presentation is going to determine if I will be a day one buyer or not at this point. I have a huge backlog, so I'm not dying for a new system.

Absolutely not going to buy it until at least one year from launch, if not more.
At launch, the eShop will be empty, the games will be overpriced and 85% of them are going to suck anyway (or be available somewhere else for a fraction of the price).
Launch line up is easy, any company can stack up 20 or 25 games to be available at launch, regardless of quality. But the hard part is that Nintendo has to guarantee they can keep a steady flow of good to great games for the following years and the only way to see if they can deliver is to wait and see.
I do not regret buying a WiiU but having to wait five months to get a decent game for a console that was supposed to be at its apex is something I don't particularly look forward to.
Besides, there's so much stuff I want to play on WiiU that buying a new console for a price that will eventually be cut 6 months after launch seems a waste of money.

Top-10 games I played in 2017: The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild (WiiU) - Rogue Legacy (PS3) - Fallout 3 (PS3) - Red Dead Redemption (PS3) - Guns of Boom (MP) - Sky Force Reloaded (MP) - ...

Preordering as soon as I can get to a Gamestop on Friday.

The console itself was enough for me to get it Day One as it seems like it was made just for me. <3 But if there was any doubt, it's being melted away by the potential launch lineup.

@spizzamarozzi
Pretty logical. My issue is that I'm pretty much done with my Wii U. I've played everything I want to play on it, and I don't touch my Xbox/PS anymore (really regret buying the PS especially, to be honest). So... yea. I'm buying a Switch day one because I want to get back into gaming, and I've only been playing some 3DS stuff from time to time for a few months now.

i probably won't buy the switch early, because i think i need to save money on games for the next months. i need a new flat and a medical service that my insurance won't pay for.

I'll be waiting at least a year. No need for me to pay full price for everything.

Launch games list doesn't seem convincing if I can be playing Breath of the Wild on my Wii U

Nope, I am good to wait

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.
I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...

Nope. The only game I want at launch is Zelda and I have a Wii U for that.

I don't know. Depends how difficult it is to preorder one on Amazon.

I really liked Xenoblade Chronicles X on the WiiU, but the game ran in 720p on my 1080p monitor which looked pretty bad and was especially noticable when all the other WiiU games I have would use 1080p, it was a real downer for me. So, I'll be avoiding Breath of the Wild for the WiiU for that reason alone, the game will only run in 720p sadly.

Zelda Breath of the Wild, Fire Emblem Warriors, Super Bomberman R, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Super Mario Odyssey are great looking releases and no region lock on the Switch has made it a definite purchase from me.

I'll get it at the end of March if its available in NY when I travel. If not, late April when I come back. Still, I'll get it this year.

I have a chronic lack of time, for everything.

Now playing: Okami HD, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

I have pre ordered but it's over priced and the software at launch is not great.

I can only see the switch bombing hard. A straight up handheld with cheaper costs would have been a better decision by Nintendo

After that bad presentation, I'm definitely won't be buying it anytime soon.

The launch line up is too weak for me to commit, if it had Zelda bundled it would of helped alot with persuading me but for the price and having me wait til Sumer for Splatoon 2 for something else to play hasn't gotten me yet.
