Is Nitendo Switch worth the money ? The Pokémon Lets Find the Pikachu had attracted me to have a nitendo switch and I have never used a nitendo product before. Will there be any facelift or upgrade version later on ? Because now I am in Europe so the price of nitendo switch here is 295 Euro which is about RM1365. So is it worth to buy it here ? Any problem faced by the owners ? Do you mind share your experience about it ?

If you plan to stay in Europe for about a year then buy there. Else, Malaysia. Switch doesnt have international warranty. Harga pun lebih kurang (heck I think some stores are selling 1250 now).

Been using it more than one year now (bought on release day) and so far only sent 1 joycon back for repairs (I have 5 pairs of joycons since I own 2 switches now).

You will have 2 years warranty if you buy there. Well worth the extra money.

Never regretted purchasing a Nintendo Switch. Able to play anywhere anytime even via online (by connecting to my mobile hotspot). More competitive games are coming in to Switch such as Paladins, AoV, FortNite and more. Do check it out!

Thanks for the advice. Now then I know that switch can only last for 3 hours, I thought it can at least handles 6 hours lol. I found a second hand Ps4 here with 500 GB for €150. No games and 1 Controller. But I don't know is it worth it or not. A new PS4 cost €300

1. If you play the switch in console mode, there are no problems with battery life.
2. Like most portable stuff these days, just use a portable charger to increase the battery life. A 20k mAh battery will last you for 15 hours.

Personally I spend a lot more time on the PS4 than the switch. But that’s just me. If you prefer Nintendo game and you mostly play on the go, a switch will be better.

Xbox one is a good mediabox but not a good gaming console.
I only use it to watch Netflix, VLC and Kodi. Interface is better than PS4 and it’s faster than most android TVs.

Not sure if it can be easily replaceable.

I think Switch and PS4 complements each other very well.

PS4
Pros:
- for the powerhouse AAA games with realistic graphics, not possible on switch.
- Cheaper games, tons of discount for older games and a lots of gems are cheap and collectible as digital games.
- Xbox dont hold a candle to it...lol.
Cons:
- I cant bring it to toilet with me...cry.gif

Switch
Pros:
- You can now stop playing Angry bird on your phone and play a real console game anywhere!
- Exclusive Nintendo games are fabulous and you cant get it anywhere. This and portability are the reason i bought a Switch.
- For clean Family fun with kids and friends. Nintendo is local multiplayer king.

Cons:
- Games are more expensive. Discounts are minimum and Nintendo games hardly ever get discount online...like NEVER.
- Besides Nintendos 1st party and a few strong support from major 3rd party like Ubisoft and SquareEnix, there is very little else. There are tons of Indies...but i hate Indies and 2D pixellated graphics. So this can be a pros or cons dependsnon what you like.
- Nintendo online is rip off...luckily, i share a Family plan with other people. Otherwise, not worth it.

Vita owner here XD

Sony has remote play app for windows PC. so if you have a small windows tablet it is doable as well.

Fuiyo..buy Xbox just to watch Kodi and Netflix...sweat.gif

Anyway, use HTPC to watch Netflix and others...

When it comes to media , PC > All.

During promotion like 11-11 sale. It’s possible to find an Xbox One S for about Rm700-800
Most high end TV box capable of lag free 4K is about that price too.

Can’t compare with HTPC in terms of flexibility. But the Xbox 1S is better in terms of
1. Dedicated IR Remote. Can use this to switch on the Xbox remotely.
2. Looks a lot better than most HTPC case
3. Lower power consumption (usually) and they run quieter as well (usually).
4. 4K hdr support
5. HDMI pass through
6. Optical out
7. Supports Dolby Atmos
8. 4K blu Ray player.
9. All of the above with almost no customization effort needed for a pretty low price.

Nah...waste of money to me. And i have an Xbox 1 (original) and Xbox 360. Xbox this gen is totally pointless. No exclusives and the XB One Is weaker than a standard PS4.

Anyway, i have no space in my TV rack to put another console..lol

If you already have an Xbox one, then there really is no point.
It’s great for those who are looking for a premium tv setup box and don’t want the hassle of a HTPC.

As a gaming console...
the Xbox one X might be worthwhile last year but not anymore with the next iteration coming up soon.
