@Octane Or it's pretty bad for everything else that's digital only if it got beaten by a 1-week old game...

Use the 'ignore' button, it works.

I'm hearing a lot of good things about Snake pass and how it holds up pretty good to the other versions except in handheld mode where oddly it doesn't look good at all.

@BLP_Software Yeah BotW & the OS froze like that on me once, too. Restarting the machine with the sleep button worked. Still better than the first 5 months of the WiiU when the system would hard lock and even the front power button didn't work so I had to remove and unwire the entire thing just to get behind it and unplug it, sometimes a few times a SESSION. The Spring patches fixed that, but that was awful.

Heck PS4 froze for years like that. Still does from time to time. It's "normal". Happened only once in BoTW, though, and that was before the latest firmware.

@Operative2-0 I've had that wifi issue 3 times so far. It's not just wifi actually, it happened on wired one or two of those times, so it's network in general.

@gcunit LOL, true. I guess it's the least niche of the download games and had a lot of hype. RMX is amazing, but it's certainly not for everyone with it's twitch play, and half the other downloads are retro styled graphics for the most powerful handheld of all time Snake Pass wins by default.

@Spoony_Tech I'm not sure about all the fuss for handheld, it looks good on the small screen. Everything is a little "soft" in the game in general due to the lower res and necessity of excessive anti-aliasing due to the nature of the snake shape, but it doesn't look bad or ugly. It looks nice. Personally it's the kind of game that plays best on a handheld, to me.

I just largely improved the sound quality (removed hiss with sensitive earphones) when in portable mode. It's called the ifi iEMatch and it lowers the output volume by 24 dB. Great improvement of dynamics, but only useful when you have enough volume reserves.

Gameplay matters.

According to this article the switch costs $257 to manufacture. Doesn't look like this includes the retailers cut but to me it looks like they got the costing spot on. They are selling at a profit. Now as we all know manufacturing costs do come down which is positive for a future price cut but as it stands I think we are getting a good deal.

''The Japanese teardown firm Fomalhaut has confirmed that the Nintendo Switch manufacturing cost is around $257, while the console is being sold at around $299.

That’s a roughly 42 dollar profit for Nintendo for each Switch sold, and considering how many Switches have been sold it comes up to a pretty tidy amount.''

They have no idea what they're talking about, have they?

BigBadJohn

@Octane if those figures are accurate I doubt Nintendo will see very much of that $42. Between retailer margin, advertising, packaging, transport and wastage with DOA switch. If they clear $10 per switch they'll be doing okay.

@BigBadJohn, Good thing Nintendo's got game sales to cover profits. Also, it's possible Nintendo has struck deals with manufactures like Nvidia to lower the costs of materials, since the success of a device like this is mutually beneficial for everyone involved.

@Octane Don't forget the cost to import the console to other countries, that's about extra $25-$30 plus clearance from governmental import fee.

Looks like it will also protect the system as well from a fall. Is that kickstarter?

I would pay 100$ but no more for that as it would definitely increase the value time wise I have with the system.
