Nintendo Switch (ニンテンドースイッチ, Nintendō Suitchi) is an upcoming video game console in development by Nintendo. Officially unveiled on October 20, 2016, it is currently scheduled for release worldwide in March 2017. Nintendo Switch is a hybrid device that can be used as either a tablet-like portable console, or inserted into a docking station that is attached to a television. The Switch features two detatchable wireless controllers, which can be used individually or attached to a grip to provide a... View more [Wikipedia]

    So apparently I missed how the Switch's TV-out tech has already been cracked. Nyko's coming out with its own mini dock this October, but you can already buy a Chromecast-looking solution from China right now:

    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/NEW-Docking-Station-for-Switch-USB-C-Multipoint-Adapter-Type-c-Transfer-To-HDMI-Adapter-Hub/32815354357.html?spm=2114.13010208.99999999.267.DECc9U

    It's pricey, though. Like 50 bucks including shipping. But if I was in the market for a second dock, I'd certainly pick one of those over a needlessly bloated official Nintendo dock.

    However, since I don't need an additional dock other than for portability, I just ordered this mini dock shell for 10 bucks so I can transplant the hardware from the original:

    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Portable-DIY-Replacement-Dock-Mount-Case-with-Type-C-HDMI-USB-Jack-Incision-without-Electronics-for/32815921107.html?spm=2114.13010608.0.0.uKEqSB

    Now, if you wanna keep the original hardware intact but find the docking procedure inconvenient, you can also buy a special USB-C extension cable with a large block on the end to keep it sitting snug inside the official dock:

    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Dealonow-1-0m-TYPE-C-3-1-Dock-charger-Extender-Cable-for-Nintendo-switch/32815964562.html?spm=2114.10010108.0.0.fvAbXZ&traffic_analysisId=recommend_2049_18_83258_iswiall&scm=1007.12908.83258.0&pvid=d6e93477-df62-4e7f-87fe-76292af604d2&tpp=1

    That'll cost ya 7 bucks. And if you still want a stand to display your Switch, any kind of tablet/phone stand with space for the USB-C port will do just fine, but there's also passive docks that can serve as either charging docks, or as TV-out docks when connected to the original dock using a USB-C extension cable. Like this one right here for 8 bucks:

    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/DATA-NEW-Best-Price-Charging-Station-Charging-Dock-Cradle-Stand-for-Nintendo-Switch-with-LED-Charging/32802502189.html?spm=2114.13010208.99999999.399.tcswkH

    So lot's of different options, all of them better than Nintendo's official dock. I mean, look at how small they've managed to make it (and that's including USB ports which I don't even need). Clearly it was designed this way to establish the Switch's identity as a console you can take on the go, rather than a handheld with a TV-out port, which is what it actually is.

    If a console has teh Yoshies, I gots ta buy it

    Splatterhouse 5 It's Splatoon in my household. My daughters can't get enough of Splatoon, and I find it a lot of fun myself. The Switch will actually be the earliest I've ever gotten a Nintendo console when Splatoon 2 gets released next month.

    I'll give Nintendo's E3 a 5/10. It sucked less than any Direct that I've watched before. Yoshi 2018, Kirby 2018 and Metroid Prime 4 seemed interesting.
    Nintendo still has to announce 6 more exclusive titles that I consider must-haves in addition to a hefty price-cut in order to convince me to buy a Switch. Plus I want more multiplayer games, like Mario Golf, Mario Tennis, Mario Soccer, Mario Baseball, Mario Party... with extensive online modes.

    rockshard PhD And if it can make me breakfast, that would be a plus.

    Nintendo is so desperate for money that they are selling empty boxes now. Yes. Seriously.

    rockshard PhD Consumers are to blame, not Nintendo. I can see this becoming a standard practice in the near future, publishers sell the game normally, and you can buy an empty box that says limited edition, sold separately. To be even more exploitative they can offer a choice of multiple boxes ("build your own limited edition") diehard collectors will want one of each.

    rockshard PhD I found out about that when I watched The People vs. George Lucas. But with that you're supposed to get the toys eventually, in this case it's just supposed to be a box.

    Every Nintendo fanboy should be tied to a chair and forced to watch this video:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bzOOJGDvrUQ
    Give this guy a round of applause! Absolutely amazing! I know it's a long video but please watch it. It shows exactly how most people in the Nintendo community are fanboys, blind to criticism. What makes this worse is that there are many popular YouTube channels (like Etika and that Arlo puppet I've roasted) who hype up the Switch so that viewers get the impression that the Switch is like the best thing ever when in reality it's not. These people should be exposed.
