The Neon Joycon set you can buy actually are R: Red & L: Blue, so you can have all-red and all-blue combos. So many options!

I'm pretty sure the ones that come with the system are left blue right red also. In the pic at least.

Whoops, I meant the opposite. So getting the standalone joycons gives you the opposite to what's in the Switch box

Console and Zelda Collectors Edition will do me, I have a backlog of other games but Zelda's looking too special to ignore :)

Yup the money issue is a big one when a new console releases.

 

As for Nintendo games I'll say this. It's easy to sit back without having played some of Nintendo's big franchise games and think that they're nothing new and because of the general aesthetic of the game, it looks kiddy and unappealing to an older gamer.

 

But that's not the case. It may just be because I'm in my mid thirties, but even though I have a PS4 and Xbox one, I can't imagine missing out on Nintendo's first party games. I love my shooters, horrors, racing etc, but I love games that are pure fun too and Nintendo always delivers on that.

 

I also understand though that many can't afford a 2nd or even 3rd console. So if you could play Mario and then take the card out and insert say Battlefield 1, I can see how Nintendo would appeal to a lot more than just their core fanbase.

Don't know if isolated to the blue joy con but apparently has sync issues.  Hopefully it is just that or that they can do a day 1 update and boost the signal or something.  Haven't decided if I am getting one yet but be good to know it works lol

I don't think it'll be that big of a problem. Many who have spoken about it said it occurs when you cover the controller with your whole hand or hold it behind something, and I don't really see why people would want to do that. And the main issue was sitting a good distance from the actual console, and again I don't know too many people who sit more than 5 meters away from their TV.

 

It doesn't happen often but my PS4 controller does it when I game and I have my laptop up in front of me. It's like it gets interference and the laptop partially disrupts the bluetooth signal. When I heard of the Joycons doing the same, it sound like the same issue.

 

I'm not sure about the bluetooth signal in the PS4 controller, but I know the Joycons have been balanced to allow longer battery life making the signal semi weak. I'm sure with a patch they could boost the bluetooth connectivity, but at the sacrifice of a little less eatery life.  I have no problems with that though, because it works flawless in portable mode and I've ordered a pro controller for at home.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out considering how few switches are actually out yet and it seems to be an issue.
When 2-3 million are out I wonder how many will have the issue. It has caused a few deaths in zelda lol.
On the other side of this there was apparently a video from cnet about the faulty kickstand but the guy was literally just pushing it over and pulling it off. Gotta get those clicks lol

Got my Switch on the weekend, my 3rd console from Nintendo, first being GBA, 2nd Cube, and now the Switch, haven't actually played much Zelda before, but love the new game because of the non-linear approach, only downside is that the game library currently quite scarce, Will def be getting Mario Kart 8, War of the Three Kingdoms and Fifa and 2K when they arrive.

 

Has anyone played I am Setsuna before? I've seen it on there and it looks like a RPG I could get into, (I'm a casual Final Fantasy/RPG player) for $60 is it worth it?

I've not played it but it looks pretty cool. Really intrigued by Disgaea 5 which you can only get from the JP eShop. It works out at just over $100 nzd but also contains all of the DLC so I might consider this once I'm done with Mass Effect Andromeda on ps4.

I've got I Am Setsuna and can recommend it. If you love SNES and early PSone jrpgs then you'll love it.
