Nintendo Switch's Games Are Getting Rave Reviews


Like the Xbox One and PS4 controllers, the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con controllers use Bluetooth to communicate with the console.

For better or worse, Nintendo occupies a bit of a different space in the gaming world than Microsoft or Sony, so the best place to look for perspective is likely past Nintendo consoles.

That Breath of the Wild was Switch's most popular software during its launch weekend came as little surprise to anyone who has followed the game. At present, you can only use one Joy-Con to play a game, rather than using two at the same time to act like a complete gamepad.

The Switch's big innovation is its versatility, Kotaku said in its review, calling it the Swiss Army Knife of video game players. The entire system can mount into a dock and be played on a TV or screw (through an HDMI cable), or you can play on the go with the screen and controllers wherever.

In fact, for all the attention the Nintendo Switch Pro-Controller and Joy-Con controllers attract, it's that touchscreen that acts as the most consistent method of interaction.


"The microSD card is being used by another Nintendo Switch console or was used on this console before it was initialised".

You can find all of this information on Nintendo's support page. Because of this, the company made the bold move to officially recommend that consumers refrain from purchasing skins for the Nintendo Switch, while simultaneously cancelling and refunding every pre-order it had for Switch and Joy-Con skins.

The Nintendo Switch is available now.

If you just have to have one, there are options out there. Also unless you really, really know what you're doing, you're running the risk of frying your brand-new $300 console. The display and the outer glass of the device are separate, providing a higher level of protection to the more valuable part, the display screen.
