    Sadly just means a bunch of half arsed ports. EA are already saying they ate only considering one more fifa before dropping switch support due to poor sakes of this year's on the console.

    They really are an odd publisher

    Switch doesn't need EA anyway. Especially with the direction they're going in. Sure it might be nice to have sport titles on the switch but arcade style would work better on it and Rocket League is the only one it needs.

    So, has ANYONE bought a second set of Joycons? The reason I ask that is that I personally can't justify the price.

    a set of joycons is 79.99, then you need the controller base, that's another 20 dollars. So for another joycon based controller you're looking at 100 dollars. Why would I do that when i can get the much better pro controller for 70? I still have yet to see a game that doesn't support the Pro controller either.

    Either way, Nintendos controller prices are outrageous.

    I prefer playing with the joycons for Mario so I finally bought a second set last week. Didn’t buy another controller base as that’s optional, for Mario I prefer detached joycons.

    One of the biggest selling games every year and EA aren't just talking fifa but all EA games.

    I bought an extra. I have a set of gray and neon. I just keep a set on the controller with another on the Switch itself. I agree, though, the price for a set is ridiculous.

    I went for PSVR instead of the Switch.

    $350 for Skyrim bundle, great deal. I'm really looking forward to Skyrim VR.

    PSVR has a bigger library than Switch. More games that appeal to me (8 or 9 vs. 3 or so). Personally, I think Skyrim alone will make the bundle worth buying.

    Just like Zelda alone makes the case for a Switch.

    p.s. Maybe I'll get a Switch, too. Zelda does sound awesome.

    Thinking of getting a Switch. Are there any games worth having other than Zelda and Mario?

    If you dont know the answer to this then maybe you don't actually want a Switch at this time.

    Like Doom and Skyrim? Those seem to be solid ports. Plenty of people value portability over power. Wii U failed because it was ahead of it's time. The Switch is what Nintendo envisioned.

    Wouldn't surprise me one bit if the Switch started getting better third party support than the Xbox One and i'm being serious. Devs go where the market is. Power really isn't on the top of anyone's list, except Xbox fans apparently.
