Nintendo have lost the plot and Australia before the console even launches, more expensive than the PS4 and Xbox One both come bundled with games. And another controller costs $120 bucks? Paid online for Nintendo quality?

 

I'll give it to them but, Super Mario Odyssey is exactly what I was demanding in the last thread.

 

Best of luck to them, they'll need it (Y)

$299 price tag and 2.5 hour battery life (in heavy play... which I assume Zelda would be) is a deal breaker for me.

I'll keep on eye on this and MAYBE pick one up on a Black Friday sale or something later in the year if there are big discounts but there's no chance I'm buying it at launch.

There also doesn't seem to be jack in games available AT LAUNCH.

300 is a bit much for me but I was expecting 250 so I guess it's not that far off.
