If you have Amazon Prime, you can pre order Switch games at 20% off. In the US at least. Not sure about other countries.
I wish this was true for preordering digital download codes.

What kind of micro sdxc card are you getting? The prices range from $40 to $200 for a 256GB card. I want one that's going to work but I can't pay $200 either.

Have they said what the fastest type it can use is? I know, for instance, on the 3DS the system could only access the micro SD card so quickly so you could actually save quite a bit of cash by buying an "older" micro SD card instead of the new turbo speed class 10 or whatever they're called.

I haven't found any info on it yet. Nintendo seems to like drip feeding information to us.

So who else is purchasing the NINTENDO SWITCH! And what games would you like to see!?

Pretty much what it says in the title, im so hyped for this and have wanted to play full aaa gaming experiences that don't differ from their console counterparts. For that reason im counting the days till i purchase lol
But what games would you like to see? As you probably know there are 80 games in development right now. Personally would love to see some games from the pas on the online store mainly from wii u and game cube.
Fatal frame games and ninja gaiden are 2 that i would love to play on the switch...

Being a big soccer fan, I'll be interested in seeing what differences there are between the full FIFA 17 game on PS4 and what EA will offer on the Switch. I really hope they don't water the FIFA experience down like the mobile version. I'll just be interested what they do to fit it on the Switch. Or if they'll expect everyone to download it to a card if bought digitally.

I think it's very important for Nintendo to have a proper football game on Switch: FIFA could be the real deal if EA plays their cards right. Peter Moore said they're building a custom FIFA from scratch for Switch. Sounds cool, but hopefully it's not based on the 360/PS3 version. This would be Wii U FIFA 13 (based off of FIFA 12 for PS3) all over again.

For more casual gamers like my brother FIFA is very important and will influence their purchase decisions. He loves Zelda, but he also needs his football fix every now and then. If EA screws it up once again, it could be a chance for Konami and a proper PES or maybe a whole new football franchise in the gaming world. FIFA's de-facto monopoly isn't helping at all.

Thats a great point, i think this will be the only way the switch could be a bit of a downer, is if they did start diluting the games. So far what everyone has said is that its a full console experience that you can take on the go, so im not too concerned.
But it would defo be upsetting to think some games have to be dumbed down?
