It looks like the latest game system from Nintendo is a huge success, as the company reports that the Switch is the fastest-selling US console ever, with 4.8 million units sold in ten months.

That doesn’t mean everyone has bought into the model though…

    I have not bought one, though to be fair I am not a console guy. I haven’t played games on a console since the NES. I bought a computer and never looked back.

    I’m not in the market for a new console right now but the Switch would be my pick if I was

    Can’t afford it. I do want one, but at the moment I simply can’t justify getting one even when they have the occasional significant sales.

    the number of games I would play on the switch, that are not available on the platforms I already own, are too few for me to justify the expense right now. If it were cheaper or offered more unique games I were interested in I would love it, but sadly no.

    Only reason I haven’t is because I don’t have the funds

    My Switch is the light of my life, my very reason for being. I cannot remember what I did with my time before I was able to spend hours on end assaulting strangers with my dualy ink splatters in Splatoon 2. There was no light in my life before I was able to galavant around the semi-open world of Super Mario Odyssey, possessing stacks of goombas to impress the fair lady walking mushrooms. I had not lived before I awoke in the land of Hyrule and took to the skies with my glider, conquering the beasts of legend and saving the very soul of Princess Zelda. My Switch has opened these doors to me, and they shall never again be closed. I like it alright, I guess.

    Not yet, but it interests me far more than the consoles. If Sony laid out a committed plan for Vita 2, i might consider that instead. But it does not likely.

    It wasn’t an option so i didnt vote. A “no” vote has a flavor of dismissal that may not have been intended.
