I reckon the system and Zelda (Game are doing that for £320) would be enough to get started, given what a big game Zelda is as well.

I keep forgetting that a grip is included because I'm planning to use the Joy-Cons like two Wii Remotes when the Switch isn't in handheld mode. I'm excited! :toot:

I didn't click the link, but there was a 'pre-order price guarantee' hyperlink below the price.

If it arrives on the 3rd early enough you could take it with you to play ;)

i bloody hope so :mrgreen: Hopefully my case turns up at the same time so i can take it in that but i bet that will be late. Either way would be nice to have a little go of it before i have to go away for a few days.

A splatoon and mk8 demo would be a great idea to keep us going until the summer.

Nope, i'm getting the console and zelda, not sure why i need a pro controller. My additional games will probably be one or two VC games or maybe some interesting games released on e shop but my main time will be devoted to Zelda.

I'm a normal person with normal gaming time (that's under 10 hours a week probably even less than that right now) so Zelda is plentiful and there is no point to other games as i just won't give them attention.

That's my circumstances personally, i know some on here have way more time to game so will probably thrash zelda in a week.

Pro controller is far, far from bare minimum. I'm not getting one and I see little reason why anyone would need to

It's almost as if gamerforever was talking shite. First time for everything, I guess.

Yeah I'm excited about that too, loved holding the Wii remotes like that and that was with the additional wire to tether me I'm hoping it'll be really comfortable. My only slight concern at the moment is that the sticks aren't really offset from the buttons which may result in it not being as comfortable for long periods of time. We'll see though.

I have got a pro controller ordered at the moment as I've heard good things and I like having a range of controller options, got it pre-ordered from Zavvi for £52 after using that discount code the other day. I wasn't going to buy it but can't see it getting that cheap for a while, it's still a little on the steep side but I can live with it. It's totally unnecessary though and I may sell it on if I find I prefer the Joy Cons in the controller grip. Knowing Zavvi it probably won't get dispatched until months later anyway so will give me time to figure out if I'm happy with the controller grip or not!

No, you need the pro controller imo. Removing the joycons looks fiddly!

Fine, don't buy it. :| Our definitions of 'bare minimum' clearly differ wildly.

Seems to me you want to spend loads of time on here talking about how much you want to buy it, but then finding reasons not to buy it.

Nah, the controllers need to detach themselves and fly into his hands like Luke summoning his lightsaber.

Not gonna lie, now you've said it I want this.

"bare minimum" should be a term reserved for things /actually required/ to use the console. Any other use is hyperbolic.
