Good day to all
I'm rather new to the forums as a whole but I want to pose a question to all the console guru's out there.

Is it still a good idea to purchase a Nintendo switch right now in 2021?
Is the console still relevant as of 2021 and will it still be relevant for the next number of years?


I pose these questions as I have been wondering or contemplating the idea of purchasing t he console but the worry of purchasing the console now so late after release ways heavy on my mind as the idea that I buy it now and lets say the switch pro comes out or Nintendo decides to discontinue the console out right and make a new console that is better than the last, as well as after this console will big titles such as breath of the wild still be made to play on the switch? Really what I'm trying to get at is will games still be made for the switch, switch pro and switch lite after the consoles reign comes to an end.

Any input and knowledge is really greatly appreciated

My input isn’t the best around and a decent fella once told me that opinions are like butts because everybody has one. That’s the watered down version of it anyway.

Basically the moral is your opinion is the main opinion and finding out for yourself. Investigating people’s reviews is a great idea regardless!

I’m sure you can download games digitally if you get a Micro SD Card you can fit a bunch on it that way, that would be from the official Nintendo eshop, you can use WiFi and there is a wired option if you search for the accessory online.

If you have worries about the regional versions colliding you could ask for help in store and maybe request to test the game before you buy it, or keep the receipt and get a refund if it isn’t compatible but... I’m a bit foggy on this but if I’m not mistaken I think there’s only two versions Japanese and Universal. Very unsure tho.

I have a grey original switch, got it from Argos about a year after Zelda BOTW came out. It’s been great, whatever you get in the end I’d suggest getting a Pro Controller with it if compatibility is assured. And the WolfLink amiibo, there’s a few places that sell special decks of cards if you didn’t want the figures, I have some they give you extra items as I’m sure you’ve heard about.

The Joy-Cons are in fact amazing, they require updates every so often and you can recalibrate the sticks and test the button inputs. If you step on it, that would make the drift rumors occur. It’s important to look after the Joy-Sticks as they are slightly fragile it’s a odd thing to measure while gaming at times if you’re heavy handed.

So sadly, Sometimes in my experience (I’ve dropped the switch once or twice) the Joy-Cons disconnect and depending on the game it will be interrupted with a controller connection issue which could be because I dropped mine, regardless, my uncle has said the design for the original is a bit lacking in strength but in saying that... it’s still been reliable and this connection issue doesn’t happen often unless the game is using the online functions, Dark Souls was a bit naff because I had the constant worry of being idle killed. I’ve had many Joy-Cons because myself and friends have damaged them, so beware if you don’t want them damaged maybe avoid letting people use it? I think I’m allowed to say that.

If you can afford it I’d get one, if you can only afford it once... hmm I’d suggest waiting to see what the Pro Switch is like, the OLED will have a amazing crisp and clear screen I can’t wait to see one, hopefully the backlight is good. The Switch mini loses the TV dock ability I think...

There’s lots to say about it
