" ...  Please also note I am not a huge gamer, even though I have a PS4 - I am hopefully writing this from a 'Joe Bloggs' point of view. ... It's a great product for all ages and perhaps will now define how console / mobile gaming is played from now on!  ...  "

" ...  The Switch is perfect for the gamer without exclusive use of a TV. ... As a dad and husband I rarely get the chance to indulge in a gaming session like I did back in the day as I have to be more considerate of how I use my time and the TV. ... This isn't the console you want if you play CoD or EA sports games. ... This isn't the console you want it high fidelity gaming is your thing. ... If you want a flexible way to play quality Nintendo games or you want a great way to introduce younger children to gaming so you can share great experiences then the Nintendo Switch is a no brainer.  ...  "

" ...  I bought the console mainly for my commute into work, and I have to say it’s now become my favourite console. ... I have a PlayStation 4 and an Xbox One but the switch enables me to not only play games at home but on the go too. ... It was probably my best purchase of 2018 and can’t wait for future games to be released!  ...  "

comment
" ...  The Switch needs a bottom charging port, of course, so that the docking gimmick works perfectly, but it really needs a second one on the top to charge it during table-top play, since the battery is not fantastic. ... I picked up a 10000 mAmp battery with a USB-C outlet and it will completely charge the console one time while playing Zelda and 1.75 times or more while the console is in sleep mode.  ...  "
