Did anyone actually i) order this, and ii) not get their order cancelled?

I was going to, then stopped myself and thought "Even if it's only $80, what in the hell do I need a Nintendo Switch for when I barely have time to play the video games I already own?"

The supply chain has healed. PS5 should be easy to find now.

No worries! It was nice to meet you and your little ones. They were extremely polite.

00 Agent was so easy until the fourth level where I am getting just dummied. The difficulty curve is something else.

I picked up a ps5 last week, after having taken some time off gaming for the early part of this new generation. Awesome system. Feels super-fast and definitely a next gen experience. Not really deep into any games yet but I'm very impressed with it as a piece of hardware.

I canít believe how good I used to be at this game. Just starting 00 Agent after readjusting to the controls by playing through the other 2 difficulties and I really canít believe I was at one time able to unlock all of the cheat options. Mind you I think if I had an original N64 style controller with the 4 directional C buttons instead of the analog stick on the switch controllers it would make a huge difference. Still a great game though.

You might actually find the Xbox version easier, since the right stick can be used for free-aiming (though it will still auto-aim on the vertical axis like the classic game does).

It works that way for the switch too, the problem is when youíre slightly off left or right when trying to use the running trick and moving around corners and your aim ends up going up or down. Maybe Iím just bad with the analog stick.

Switch is now officially the third best selling gaming platform of all time

https://www.nintendolife.com/news/20...me-boy-and-ps4

Amazing success, especially factoring in there has yet to be an official price drop. Only platforms left ahead of it are the DS and PS2.

And honestly the Switch deserves it - great hardware and great software.

Still crazy to me that some third party companies like EA couldnt figure out how to support the 3rd highest selling console of all time with software

I would still like a "Pro" version of the hardware though.

At this point I just want a Switch 2.

IMO the OLED was the pro - the screen was that big of an improvement.

True. But what do you really bring to a Switch 2? I have to assume it would be backwards compatible.

Yeah I would want it to be backwards compatible but the problem with a Pro line is then you have to support the old hardware with new games.

Switch 2 should have the OLED screen and fix the Joy Cons but really the same form factor otherwise.

Have it be backwards compatible but new games should be exclusive to Switch 2, none of the cross gen limitations.

Ahh right. Good point.

So say a Switch 2 in 2024 and a Switch 2 XL in 2026. I would take a bigger screen for the Switch (or the Steamdeck).

I would like Nintendo to make it pocketable again, not something you need to lug around in a backpack.

It could be accomplished with some of Samsung's new folding or expanding screen technologies.
