Introducing Nintendo Switch, the new home video game system from Nintendo. In addition to providing single and multiplayer thrills at home, the Nintendo Switch system can be taken on the go so players can enjoy a full home console experience anytime, anywhere. The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system, with unprecedented new play styles brought to life by the two new Joy-Con controllers. PLAY ANYWHERE Home Gaming System At home the main unit rests in the Nintendo Switch dock, which connects the system to the TV and lets you play with family and friends in the comfort of your living room. On-the-Go Lift Nintendo Switch from the dock and instantly transition to handheld mode for on-the-go gaming. By sharing Joy-Con, players can go head-to-head while away from home. You can also enjoy the same great games in tabletop mode by using the included stand to prop the system up. New Play Styles Remove the detachable Joy-Con from either side of Nintendo Switch for more play styles: One player can use a Joy-Con in each hand Two players can each take one Multiple Joy-Con can be employed by numerous people for a variety of gameplay options (additional Joy-Con sold separately) Slip a set of Joy-Con into a Joy-Con grip accessory, mirroring a more traditional controller. Or, select an optional Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. Bring together up to 8 Nintendo Switch systems for local face-to-face multiplayer.

All features work as advertised with no surprises. It switches between docked and undocked modes almost instantaneously.
The joy-con controllers are really good. Having two in the box means you can play multiplayer games on day one without having in invest in extra hardware.
The system itself feels sturdy and well constructed.
Nintendo first party games! (IE the reason you buy any Nintendo product). Mario is a blast, Zelda is mind blowing, Mario Kart is stupid fun. You know what you're going to get with Nintendo games.
The indie game support has been really impressive! Nintendo has seemed to focus on quality rather than quantity with its indie offers. From games such as Overcooked, Stardew Valley, Golf Story, The Sexy Brutale, you're going to be able to find games you enjoy at cheaper prices, and support developers who aren't EA.
The joy-cons are not as comfortable as other controllers for longer play sessions. The pro controller (an additional cost) is recommended if you plan on playing the Switch at home with games such as Breath of the Wild.
The Nintendo online features are somewhat lacking compared to Playstation, Xbox and PC gaming. Friends lists are a mess, you cannot send messages or game requests through the system. To send a friend request, you cannot search via name, but have to send through a 12 digit code to your friends via SMS or another messaging service. The friend system seems really archaic for a system released in 2017. Voice chat can currently only be done in one game (Splatoon), and is handled through a smart phone. That's right, you don't do voice chat through the system, but through your smart phone! For this privilege, Nintendo will be charging you $30AUD a year to access this service (despite discord being available on mobile for free).
So you'd think I would be a prime customer for the Switch, right? I mean sure, Nintendo hardware always has unique and strange quirks but I adopt or ignore them so that I can enjoy the games.
I never bought a Switch at release because I didn't want to only play Zelda, so I waited until Xmas 2018 to finally order one, once a Pokemon game was released.
And for me, it just hasn't clicked.
I love the idea of it being portable alongside being a living room console, but I feel like it does both roles poorly instead of just one being done really well.
In 'TV' mode, it's low res and slow. In portable mode, it's too big and it feels like it's going to break - the controllers on the side feel as if they could snap off if too much pressure was applied, and the joysticks and buttons are just far too small. This is really frustrating when combined with the positioning of the buttons almost directly underneath the analog stick, making it nearly impossible for me to tap them without the joystick getting in the way.
Maybe I'm not the target demographic (I don't have tiny hands)?
The other annoyance is that none of the retro library, nor online gaming functionality, is available unless you subscribe to the Switch's online service.
In the end, it's just not what I had expected - there are too many fundamental design issues for me, and the library isn't strong enough to warrant it's purchase. I can play nearly all of its non-bespoke library on much better (and more comfortable to use) hardware.
I'll be playing my 3DS until it dies one day in the future, but the Switch, for now, is being sold.
My advice: Try before you buy. Borrow a friend's or demo it in store, just to be sure you know what you're getting.
It reminds me of how fun it was to play on a SNES, before games became as demanding as a 2nd life, but with 720p/1080p 30 FPS graphics.
The current flood of Indies filling in the gaps in the eShop is also a great value added.
Well done Nintendo. Now if you just could keep the prices of download-only games in check a bit...
I would recommend buying a screen protector and a case for it. The screen isn't that durable and it has been dropped several times on the wooden floor but luckily hasn't cracked.
A great gaming console with games for families.
The Switch is super portable, playing either on a TV or like a gameboy of old. Coming from Xbox, the games are more fun and approachable to the family. Brining back the nostalgic days of getting everyone around the TV playing Mario Party (instead of something like Call of Duty).
Games can become quite expensive, but just have to keep an eye out for sales.
Really good price and fast delivery.

Some background: I am a CS student who has to live in the college dorm as mandated. Student life can be hectic with projects, assigments and stuff and there isn't much one can do in a dorm-room with mediocre wifi and a lot of a other minor restrictions of keeping something for entertainment. I used to feel bored a lot and really had nothing else to do here.
I then found out about Nintendo Switch and decided to do some research into it. I was really intrigured by it as it brought back childhood memories of having a PSP (a handheld console like this for those who do not know). Plus, the additional factor of it having "MARIO" games in itself was nostalgic enough. Thus, I took a leap of faith (considering this has no warranty in India) and bought it on a whim. I also bought a 256gig microSD card as I planned to go digital (who has space for loads of those cartridge boxes in a tiny dorm room anyways. Also, they get lost and scratched so...). The moment I held it and played my first game (Smash Bros Ultimate), I knew I made the right choice. IT IS JUST SO MUCH FUN! Props to Nintendo for making this amazing console and making awesome new versions of the old classics (Zelda BOTW and Super Mario Bros being a few)! Its a perfect pick-it-up-and-play console which isn't "serious" or distracting enough to distract me from my studies (it can be if you buy beautiful and engaging RPGs like Zelda and Xenoblade but I didn't haha).
The UI of this console also gets a lot of appreciation from me being a budding front-end developer myself. Its slick, fast and did I say awesome? It is to the point and keeps the gaming aspect of it to the front with a bold square boxed array of your downloaded/current cartridge's games being the main menu. I am in love with just every aspect of it!
TL;DR This is an awesome console for any age group and with the amount of games it has (and has coming) will surely keep you entertained for ages!
Some general tips for Indian buyers:
0. No warranty (but you already know that don't you?) but the build quality is reliable enough that you probably won't be needing it anytime soon.
1. Indian PayPal accounts work with this console so use that (haven't tested credit/debit cards but I hear Axis/ICICI work).
2. I encourage you to buy digital games as they give you virtual coin credits which can take a few bucks off your next game purchase. Also, they are a bit cheaper than physical copies due to no regional pricing for them (physical copies) in India.
3. The charger that comes in the box is a flat-pin 110-240V brick but can be used as-is if any ports of your house has the flat-pin connector.
