    I can handle the $299 USD pricing but some of the accessories are little up there in price.

    Nintendo Switch Pro Controller - $69.99
    Joy-Con controllers - $79.99
    Nintendo Switch Dock Set - $89.99

    What do you all think?

    I'm not a gamer so there ain't no way I'm paying $300 for it...

    Does anyone else think that $60 for a game is a bit steep in the age of $1 to $5 apps? They better be damn good if I'm going to drop nearly $200 on just a few games alone after spending a handful of bills on the console alone.

    Yeah, I do think 60 bucks is a bit steep. (but not because of the price of 1 dollar phone app type games) -Obviously these two things are in totally different leagues when it comes to games. But for console games I consider 30-40 bucks to be the most I'd pay for premium games (like mario and zelda, etc.), and under 20-25 bucks max for non premium titles. (I totally hate it when they try to charge premium price for the more mediocre games, so I never do it when they try to do that) -That being said though, I do still begrudgingly make exceptions for really good games. (I'm having Zelda and Super Mario Odysee no matter what, so they've got me by the short and curlies for those ones, and they know it!)

    But I agree with you though that I think it's daylight robbery that this is what they're trying to set as the new pricing structure. (so I do sincerely hope that this is just something they're trying on at launch and that they won't stay like that forever). Alot of people will simply buy less games if they all end up staying like that, so I have a feeling that there will be many that come down in price once they see which ones people aren't biting on as much as they should!

    The new streetfighter that's coming out is one of the titles that I'd buy at normal price but there's just no way I'd pay whilst they're trying to sell it at premium. But there will still be alot of cheaper titles too though that look quite fun. Lots of ones coming out by independent developers for it also that are pretty darn good. Quite a few of them I've already got my eye on!

    Honestly,
    As of right now I cannot justify the pricing for any of it. Maybe when my kids are older and can play with me I might be able to. But given the size of the Joycons, it will still be a hard sell for me.

    In my opinion is pricey, you have to take into account that most ga,es are going to need a Sd card to play so this is a lack of hardware. In the other hand like with Apple you have to pay the differentiation and the innovation of the new system which in my opinion is a very needed fresh air for the gaming party.

    Good move Nintendo!!!!

    I'm priced out. Especially regarding the pro-controller. I'd love to get on board but it is too much for me.

    $300 is a bit steep for a non-gamer such as myself, especially when the most appealing thing about it is the new Zelda game. I wish there was a way to rent one, so that I could play the game and not spend the $300 on something I know will end up just sitting in a drawer or something.

    Yeah console price aside just accessories one would want to go with the console would easily be worth as much as the console itself 🤦🏼*♂️

    The price is alright, but the accessories are too steep in price for the average family to afford..

    It's like 320€ in Germany but it's not as much as I expected for the Switch it self (expected 400-500€). In my oppinion the Switch is cheap for the beginning but the controllers and games are expensive if you want to play many games or your controller breaks.

    I think I'll wait for Nintendo to offer a console bundle with Mario or Monster Hunter.

    It's a lot. I live in South Africa and it's R5000, you could get a decent Xbox one bundle or ps4, not portable but still. The standalone Nintendo Switch is 5 grand...

    I think it has been said already, but the $300 price tag is a little steep. But what is crazy is the price of accessories. I can't remember the exact prices but like $50 or $60 for an additional controller? $70 for a pro controller? Give me a break! That is ridiculous! I actually haven't even looked at game prices out of fear!

    The switch actually does not support SD cards at the moment. So you will have to save directly to the internal memory of the system. If that space runs out you have to delete files. Seems pretty weak to me.

    As much as I am excited about Nintendo Switch..I am irritated that I wasted so much money on Wii U!
    I like Wii U but no more new games suck!

    I didn't think about the extra controller, but games are on par with XBOX and PS so not too far out. Join Best Buy Gamer's Club and get discounts on all of them. It will pay for itself quickly.

    I may revisit when more games are available and more reviews are in. Just got a PS4 with a ton of games at Christmas so have enough to hold me over a while.

    It's too expensive. It should've been $250, or it should've included a rechargeable joycon grip and 1-2 Switch.
