Introducing Nintendo Switch! In addition to providing single-player and multiplayer thrills at home, the Nintendo Switch Console also enables gamers to play the same title wherever, whenever and with whomever they choose. The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system to enable unprecedented new video game play styles.

Key Features

  • At home, Nintendo Switch rests in the Nintendo Switch dock that connects the console to the TV and lets you play with family and friends in the comfort of your living room. By simply lifting the Nintendo Switch console from the dock, it will instantly transition to handheld mode, and the same great gaming experience that was being enjoyed at home now travels with you. 
  • The portability of Nintendo Switch is enhanced by its bright 6.2-inch, multi-touch high-definition display that can display a resolution of 1280 x 720. It brings the full home gaming system experience with you to the park, on a train, in a car, or to a friend’s apartment.
  • Gaming springs into action by removing detachable Joy-Con controllers from either side of the Nintendo Switch console. One player can use a Joy-Con controller in each hand; two players can each take one; or use additional Joy-Con controllers*, Nintendo Switch Pro Controllers*, or a combo of the two for a variety of gameplay options. They can easily click back into place and furthermore, it is possible for numerous people to bring their Nintendo Switch consoles together to enjoy local multiplayer face-to-face competition.
  • Battery life can last for more than six hours, but will vary depending on the software and usage conditions. With 32GB of internal memory, a portion of which is reserved for use by the system. Users can easily expand storage space using microSDXC cards.
  • Easily take and save screenshots using the Capture Button located on Joy-Con (L). The player can then view, edit (add text of various sizes, colors and positions) and post them to popular social media networks.

*Additional Joy-Con or Nintendo Switch Pro controllers required for multiplayer modes; sold separately. Multiplayer features vary by game; see individual games for details.

Nintendo Switch Console is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun and versatile but imperfect I've had the switch since launch and have found it to be a great experience. It's very different to the one I get on my PS4, and the portability aspect still amazes me. It's made a few appearances at parties and always got a 'wow'. I'm saying that, there is a major issue that needs to be adressed. Reports of the dock scratching the screen are true (it's happened to me despite how cautious I am), so I would definitely recommend the purchase of a screen protector or dock guard. Also, at the moment the games library is a little shallow, so after you finish say Zelda, you have little to do with it until someone comes around for a 1-2 switch session.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome console! I was a bit hesitant at first buying a switch, but definitely wasn't disappointed when I made the purchase. One of the best features is how versatile the console is, allowing you to take it anywhere on the go without having to stop gameplay. A must have for Nintendo fans or if you're after something extremely fun and new.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Finally got a Joy-con replacement Bought a Nintendo Switch Console on 15/11/17, but found that blue joy-con couldn’t work properly when playing with Zelda (Link would run or walk automatically). Returned that joy-con to Harveynorman on 03/02/18 and got a new one on 27/02/18 with an instruction ‘how to detach the joy-con from the console’ and was told it’s an One-off replacement. My child already purchased another pair of Joy-Con and working well so I think it might be okey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excelled Expectations This console went above and beyond expectations not only with the finish of the physical product, but the user experience. So far in several weeks of use I have not had a single app/game crash or overheated console, even after hours of non-stop Zelda. highly recommend to anybody who is interested in gaming and the concept of larger, more open games but are intimidated by the magnitude of games that are released on other consoles like the PS4 or Xbox.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic gaming console I bought this for my 18 year old son and he absolutely loves it. He can hook it up to the TV very easily and quickly, it is not difficult at all. Or he can play it as a hand held console and take it wherever he goes. He is able to play games with his younger brother who also got the switch. They have both stated that they think the switch is far superior to their 3DS and is the future of hand held consoles. Very pleased with the purchase.
