Care to share your past experience of Nintendo products purchases in terms of pricing difference?

I have never bought any Nintendo console before, except for handhelds, 3DS XL (but I didn't compare with Nintendo store direct either).

Games are around 60-80sgd while online it's 40-60 after conversion.

I'm also catching the event in office , hopefully not more than 1 hour .

I'm expecting it to be at usd$300-$350

Too cheap like $200 either they selling at a lost or the specs sux, more than $350, they will lose some gamers

as a Playstation fanboy, i am both intrigue by the Switch but also wary of nintendo, specifically in regards to region locking and digital purchase.

one of the greatest pet peeve with nintendo (and why i never bought any of their stuff since Nintendo DS Lite) is because of region locking. That's so backward.

Also, they really really really NEED to sort out their digital marketplace to be at least on the same level as everyone else (digital purchase tied to user id instead of tied to devices)..it's the 2016 and why are they still using archaic method of 2006?

pretty sure they have learnt a lot from Wii U's failure and also the current landscape of things.

by omitting out the disc drive is an indication that they have moved on from disc based consoles.

region lock reminds me of those good old times
hope they also moved on from that le bah.

wait and see loh. they have 99 ways to fail again with this new console.

u looked at their mobile phone games strategy....i dunno man.....nintendo is a thoroughly japanese company, die die stick to their 'philosophy'.

I love mario and their games...but their system and eco-system always got some 'quirks' about them that stop them from being user friendly.

i mean it's 2017 and they still don't have some sort of achievement/trophy system or a consolidated user id system with cloud save. Can you imagine that even non-game company like Apple, Google and Amazon got Achievement systems, cloud save synchronization on their platform?

Nintendo, i love you but you need to pull your head out of your a55 and into the 21st century.

i will buy the switch in a heartbeat regardless of price (money is not problem for me...i got a PSVR at launch LOL) but they need to assure me that they got their a55 together before i dedicate myself to another nintendo platform.

Sounds like a good plan. This will be the first time that I'll watch a gaming event live and it's on my kid's birthday. Haha. Price wise, I think will be steep - USD449 ?

The switch talk will be around an hour long as stated by Nintendo jp. It will be in Japanese but will have English dub live. Friday ~12-1pm, may start preview at 11.30am.

Following that night will be the treehouse talk where they will reveal and discuss more about Nintendo switch games. Same friday night ~10.30pm sg timing.
