How exciting, the Nintendo Switch is coming out March 3rd for $300 USD! Included:

* main console
* 2x controllers (Left and Right) - Nintendo calls them a "Joy Con"
* Joy-Con grip (to which two Joy-Con are attached and used as one controller)
* a set of Joy-Con wrist straps
* a Nintendo Switch dock (which holds the main console and connects it to a TV)
* an HDMI cable and an AC adapter

It's pretty cool that it can be charged via USB-C, but 3-6 hours of gameplay isn't a ton. Though I'm sure you could plug it in anywhere.

Who else is pumped?

Thinking about this(and this is only me), a console(or whatever platform! It can even be a PC!) is good if it has good-games. That is why I prefer the Xbox-One over a PS4, because Xbox-One has the Forza-series(and even the Horizon) that has transferable-progress of Livery-Designs that you have sank so much hours-on, in order to create atleast your own Gallery that you take pride on. Not to mention that game is massive and has economy! About the yearly-fee, I would rather pay that! Whereas PS4, I would rather play FFXIV: ARR in the PC-Platform for better functionality, and the exclusive FFXV sucks!
If you can justify to me good long-term games in this console(even atleast one), I might give it a look, but sorry, I'm gonna have to pass for now. I would rather invest that $300 on Paying to-Progress in Revelation Online to be spent on Ausgyths(whatever way to bypass it) and Phlogistons. To be honest, I am a person who plays games for Progress and Rewards. This is my way of enjoying a game as well as a community ofcourse. Im gonna pass, sorry.
I will stick to my plan of Revelation Online to Bless Online. By the time Bless Online comes out, I'm already 79 on my Swordmage and is grinding to cap my Mule.

$300 will buy you a lot of cannolis.

@rtyu: me2. I remember standing out in the cold for the Wii back in the day! I hope this doesn't become similarly disappointing fairly quick post launch.

I'm hyped about developers adapting to the USB Type-C future
