Not yet, man, but I’d imagine (hope) that Nintendo is working to beef up these kinds of features.

I'd argue that the PSP proved that optical media can work in a handheld, against all odds.

But it's certainly not a great way of doing it.

Toys R Us in Times Square have a "Buy 1 get 1 40% off" on all games so think I'll grab Xenoblade and Fire Emblem.

Was playing taxi today for the kids and having misread a text message turned up somewhere to pick them up about an hour before I was needed. Luckily I had the Switch on me so found a quiet spot, put my feet up and got an hour of quality time in to Xenoblade Chronicles 2!

Man I love my Switch!

Thanks! Got Rayman Origins this evening too so very lucky... although I was 99% sure I was getting a Switch today :lol: but I didn’t want to get my hopes up just in case.

Will be interesting to see what Nintendo do with the non-gaming side of things across 2018. It’s had a brilliant line-up since launch and looks to be continuing that next year, but obviously is lacking slightly in things like the Virtual Console and media apps. Even having some music in the background would make it appear a bit more... ‘lively’, I guess.

I think 2K must have caught wind of the frustration about the big download requirements for cart purchasers of WWE 2K18. As highlighted by HTTKB! above, the cart version is priced at under £30 at ShopTo and now Amazon have it up for £35. I wonder if the eShop version will also appear at this lower price?

Recognising, of course, that the game has lots of DLC and a Season Pass. Don’t worry, 2K won’t be strapped for cash by making this price “cut” :) .

Might be also because the PS4/X1 version is discounted to £26.99 in some shops inc Sainsburys, keep seeing the official 2K18 facebook promoting it.

I have it PS4 but 2k18 on the go would be sahweet.

Had a quick peek on eshop this morning. WWE's out on there for £59.99 or I think it was £20 more for the deluxe bundle with season pass. Deffo gonna wait for the physical version, twice as much for the download? Madness. You can download the Kurt Angle dlc for free at mo without having the game so prob worth grabbing it before it goes up in price after the 13th.

If you add the Kurt Angle DLC then you get the icon on your dash, from there you can download the update ready for the cart coming.

It is on steam. I don't know why anyone would expect anything else.

As an offer, yes, but it's actual RRP is the same as Switch. What did people expect? Seriously?

I've become weirdly obsessed with collecting Joycons...I think they're so cool.

I now have the Mario Reds, Neon Yellows and Splatoon Pink & Green. i guess I only need the classic Neon Blues and Reds. The grey ones don't interest me. Switch is all about colour and fun :)

Plus I'm getting the coloured straps, and then mixing and matching to create cool combos. :toot:
