@OorWullie
I mean, it's expensive. But I like it. I wanted to experience Ultra Street Fighter II like when I was a kid at the arcade. I don't regret it for a second. And I am hoping to get a lot more use out of it than just SF, although I was perfectly OK with it being just that game if it came down to it. But before you drop that much money I'd just make sure that you would use it... and if you would, then I think it's definitely worth it.

But you absolutely positively need Ultra Street Fighter II. That game is a must-have, stick or not. But even more so if you get a stick!

@Ryu_Niiyama Got a fun chance to stop by the honest to goodness arcade. Theyve set up an fg area now, that's new in the last 8 months. Just a few rows, plus a few neo geo games (metal slug 5 etc) got to play SFIV.... thought it was the "NEW" PS4 one then realized it's the 3DS one..... wow, feels like a totally different game. Was fun though. And for to compare my Hori parts to sanwa.... not as different as i thought. Sanwa is more resistant with increasing resistance, concave, and has that gloss finish. Hori is a little lighter and linear touch. Button caps feeling thinner with more slop is probably the biggest difference pin Hori.

They also had 3 SFII cabinets..... wired seeing that game next to SFIV, tekken 7 and MvC as legitimately equal. No wonder is $50 ON switch. It's not a switch tax. That's legitimately a flagship title for capcom in the arcade still. Its higher profile than the 4 slightly abandoned sfiv cabs sitting apart from all the other fighters

I think it has been and will be very well received as a handheld, that's what people expect from Nintendo judging by sales. As a huge plus, this time it's not light years behind tech-wise.

See the tempered glass screen protectors,are they bad for fingerprints?The one I've got on my Switch is a plastic one that came included with it it,t's really bad for fingerprints.It wasn't a cheap one though,I'm sure it was the same price as a tempered glass one,the guy in the shop wouldn't let me swap it though..I'll happily buy a new glass protector if it means less smears.

Mines pretty good yeah. It picks.up fingerprints on occasion but they clean really easily. I got the Hori one.

It's not just perception is it? Lots of third-party games have undersold on Nintendo whether it's bad ports, good ports or exclusives that look like a good fit.

You're right they wouldn't get the support though. They wouldn't move enough gamers from their existing libraries and friends lists on Sony or MS to sell enough. I also don't think the industry has any interest whatsoever in a fourth box (including the PC) playing the same games and cannibalising existing sales.

@electrolite77 Cheers. I cleaned it before putting it away yesterday, I'm looking at it now after playing with it for a couple of hours and it's a smeary mess. I'll get a glass one then when I'm back in the UK. Hopefully this one I've got on removes easy enough.

May be a dumb question but... the local multiplayer between multiple systems works in docked mode as well, no? Like, not just with one docked Switch and a couple others in handheld mode.

Just saw the Splatoon 2 ad again and the wording made me question that. Kinda curious even though it probably wouldn't affect me lol

What a beautiful signature.

@SKTTR The indies are coming in unrestrained, that's true. The only one of those on my radar, is Nine Parchment.

@BLP_Software If you're wondering where I brought the home-console/handheld argument from, I had the same conversation a while earlier, when in regards to EA not quite having figured out how to use the Switch, someone brought this up: "Those demographics aren't equal. We still don't have hard data on how many Switch owners prefer handheld, docked, or either, and that would be very helpful in making certain development decisions to make the most of the modes that would get played the most."

Where I gave my response: "That would be antithesis, since it would cause favouritism of handheld over home-console, which would ruin the Switch as a concept. If Game Freak, for example, make Pokemon for Switch handheld only, then that Fs with the entire system and it's message.

As far as I know, most people use both modes, equally, as the Switch was intended. And the system must remain open to personal use, without getting games pigeon-holed into either, without a solid reason as to why they're handheld only (touch screen)."

Push comes to shove, I then decided to look around, and saw mostly handheld favoured talk on the places I came across. Naturally, that gives on the impression that it's favoured. Coupled with someone else telling me he's expecting handheld to become the favoured mode, it had me wonder....

@UmniKnight
I use it mostly in docked mode. Also, there's no way for you to arrive at any kind of accurate conclusion as to what people prefer simply by gathering anecdotes from people on the internet.

The majority of the internet firmly believed the Switch wouldn't even sell in the first place. It's pretty obvious that many, MANY people who bought and own Switches aren't on the internet, or at least aren't expressing their viewpoints on forums for people like you to swing by and account for in some sort of "study."

Just not possible, my friend. You'd have to get out into the real world just like the good ol' days and do a comprehensive survey of thousands of people to start approaching the truth of the matter.

@UmniKnight The only reason a developer would make a game handheld only is if touch screen inputs where integral to the game. As far as I'm aware there is only one game on the Switch this applies to.

Name the movie quote "Toolshed!"

@rallydefault That's true, and it'd probably take quite some time to even gather the numbers, let alone if it should be used as a measure by developers.

But as I've said, it tends to be influenced when most people you talk to, use it the other way you do, you tend to feel like you're on your own in that. I guess I was hoping to get some like-minds to validate not ever removing my Switch from it's dock, and I do thank the people that have been giving me hope in that regard.

Also if you went outside to gauge it, then you wouldn't find the people inside that are playing it docked

@BigBadJohn 2 of them, that being Voez and Severed, but yes. I've one sent Nintendo an e-mail, and they told me it's up to the developer how they make their game, and to what mode it's tied to.

In the future there will be games that will only run in the dock. I believe that Nintendo will release an external GPU add-on for the Switch dock (similar to the Apple external GPU for the Mac at the end of the year), it will raise the processing power of Switch to at least PS4 level. VR using a wireless headset will be possible on Switch with this add-on GPU.

@JaxonH Re: I Am Setsuna... that game is largely regarded as mediocre by the gaming community. Even a massive JRPG nerd like me couldn't muster up enthusiasm for it. Now, if Octopath, Xenoblade, Tales of, SMT, etc. do poorly, them we have a problem.
