    A worldwide release is a good decision. The price also seems good. I wonder if they are selling at a loss this time around.

      considering it’s power looks to be less than some phones..who knows.

    • I doubt it seeing how weak the switch is. Pricing it the same price and a PS4 slim will bite Nintendo in the ass hard!.

    I can’t wait to get my hands on one 🙂

  • Terrible price! The same price as a PS4 slim!? Are you kidding me?
