    We are looking to get a Switch soon. What is the average price I should be looking for to know its a good deal?

    • Joe4160

      The best you can look for is a bundle deal, something that includes a Micro SD card or a game. Because Nintendo is very stingy and very rarely ever lets their consoles go on sale or have a price drop. However you may want to hold off until Christmas time because there’s a newer version of the Nintendo Switch coming out in November/October called Nintendo Switch OLED, it’s still the same Switch but this version has a few upgrades, the main upgrade is the screen, it will use a different screen type (OLED instead of an LCD screen like in the regular switch), the Screen size is a tad bit bigger (regular switch is 6.2inches and the OLED screen will be 7inches) and the included dock will have Ethernet port built into it (The dock with the regular switch doesn’t have an ethernet port) and the OLED switch will have 64gb of internal storage opposed to 32gb of storage on the regular switch. However you will still def want to look for a Micro SD card for it because nowadays games and their updates will eat up that 64gb like nothing, especially if you buy digital games. There may possibly be a small price drop on the Regular switch when the Switch OLED comes out, but with how Stingy Nintendo is plus how the Global supply chain is right now for most computing stuff, I doubt Nintendo will even think of a price drop for the regular switch. So may be better off looking for a bundle deal on a switch or seeing if you can buy one from a friend/neighbor/family who may also throw in some games and accessories.

    Anybody know how to download/buy the super Mario bro game? Son is a big fan. It worked for a while in the switch and just stopped. No idea what to do. Nintendo customer service was not helpful.
