Here is a sign that the Switch is being a big success so far:



When games like this appear on a game console (see the original DS and Wii)

Nintendo announced that the Switch has now sold 10 millions units. I think it took 4 years for the Wii U to sell that much

I'm thinking about getting one for myself around this time of year, especially if there are gonna be sales. How has the platform been so far? The only negative thing I've heard so far is the online chat hooks up to your phone (or at least did at launch), not the system.

no issue so far for me. But no twitch livestreaming and no browser (they put in Bowser in it instead of a browser)

Also, how has the battery life been? I've done some research and seen max of 3hrs with intensive games like BotW. Is that generally enough when you're on the go? I also have a power bank, so if you know the capacity of the Switch battery, I'd love to know.

Got a Switch for Christmas, pretty awesome for something so small.

Got FIFA18, Mario Odyssey & downloaded Rocket League.

FIFA plays well and looks great, haven't played Odyssey yet but it's meant awesome and Rocket League runs smooth but lowers it's resolution dynamically so it doesn't look as good as on PS4 - but still playing it portably is quite amazing!

There are some really cool looking indie games available too. Time to port Pirate Space Kitties to Switch! Kidding :).

Yeah I was hoping to get some stuff onsale too, but nada.

The only criticism I have is holding the console in portable mode with the joycons connected can cramp your hands after a while due to not having the palm grips that traditional controllers, or even stuff like the WiiU Gamepad has.

Something like this would be great: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1274541538/switchcase-case-with-replaceable-grips-for-nintend

I don't have that issue and I had it on the Wii U actually. However, I have to watch out my friends when they re-attach the joycons to ensure that they don't put them the wrong way (they are very hard to detach when that happens)

Battery life isn't an issue so far since I rarely play more than 1 hour at once.

As for Mario Odyssey it's just amazing, but I don't like the co-op mode. It's too hard to control Capi when the camera keeps swinging around. I wish it was split-screen.

Also Axiom Verse is great.

I also got Mario Odyssey and it is amazing! I like the open style of the worlds in a similar vein to SM64. The visuals are very good and the gameplay mechanics very creative with the way you can utilise Capi.
