You may or may not be as silly as me but when I had that issue I had plugged the USB lead into the old port in error and not the USB C port...

 

Thanjs :) but yeah seems like it's screwed .. :(

I love everything about this console and haven't experienced any joycon drops.

 

my preferred way of playing it away from the TV is to prop it up using the official case and play with a joycon in each hand. My only wish is that the power socket was at the top rather than the bottom.

 

The official case turns out to be good value with the screen protector and case as I didn't not realise you can also prop the console with it.

Yeah it's great case, nice looking too. 

 

Be nice too if they or a third party released a power dock to play this way.

My friend code is sw-0895-0854-1204 if anyone wants to add me. I can't find the forum option to edit my signature though. I thought it would be under settings but I don't seem to be able to select that.

 

*Edit* Found it

Remember when we were all pre-ordering and that one guy cancelled and bought a cheapo Windows tablet with some weird controllers and it turned out it couldn't run much of anything games wise anyway?

 

I :wub: my Switch.

I better be able to use it for the next 4 years. 

 

That's what I mean. I'm still using my 360 pad for all things PC after five years. Everything is still good other than the rubber from the analogues wearing all the way down to the bone.

 

The official carry case is excellent everyone, by the way. Slots for five carts inside and a pocket for the grips. It looks nice and 'adult' when all packed up too, with very discrete branding on either side - you don't really see the logos until they catch the light.

So I went on to Amazon and was actually shocked to see Bomberman R at £62.

 

There doesn't seem to be anything to justify that price, and it feels to me that Nintendo maybe persuaded Konami to make it retail/expand it a little bit to be worth that cost but jeeez. I mean every console since the Wii/360 generation has had a downloadable Bomberman at $10, I see that happening a few months down the line cause £62.... I mean if it was £62 last year, conversion rate puts it at about $100... for Bomberman.

 

Idk I love Bomberman, I truly do and I think hes a very important mascot - I really want him to be in Smash Bros... but this is cray. I wonder if it'll drop down to £10 soon and people will regret buying it at launch.

 

Anyway can anyone send me a Switch and Zelda? I really want to play it but theres no way I could afford it. I will bake you a cake.

Definitely didn't just add fifty quid to pick up Not Wipeout and I Am Setsuna which clearly I won't have time to touch this weekend because of Zelda.

 

oh launch madness how I love you... (my bank manager and wife may feel differently).

If people are having issues with the joycon connectoon, have they tried changing their router wifi channel? The top three or four channels in a 2.5GHz signal are known to cause Bluetooth interference.

 

I've had the signal drop on my left joycon, whereas I've never had the signal drop on a DS3, DS4, 360 or Xbox One* controller over a 10 year period, and that's with the signal passing through a double brick wall because my Xbox and PlayStation consoles live in the understairs cupboard (right next to the router!).

* except on the Xbone due to the known issue with the original model - no drops since I got the S version

 

Yesterday I tested the Pro controller, placing the Switch in the same cupboard (so the signal had to pass through the double brick wall to the Switch located next to the router) and it was fine. It's most definitely an issue with the joycons.

Has anyone here bought 1-2-Switch from cdkeys? It's a fiver cheaper from there than the eShop on the Switch and I'd like to grab it today so I can take it round to the girlfriend's tonight, but they're showing it as a "preorder" right now. I just want to make sure if I buy it, I'll actually get the key pronto.

More Scratchgate

 

 

The direction and depth of those scratches is pretty strange. Not sure how he achieved that by normal use of the dock, you would imagine the scratches would be vertical.

 

For safety I have covered the inside of my dock with a combination of spongy self adhesive puncture repair patches and some masking tape. 

 

Still not convinced the whole issue isn't user error with people who got their Switch for free and therefore aren't taking the care we are when docking. Plus seems a good way to get some YouTube views atm.

I set up a japanese account so I could download those demos from the eShop. Unfortunately now my 'News' is in japanese and I can't figure out how to return it to english. Anyone know?

 

Also tried changing from my Anker 13000 battery pack with the USB-C cable that came with the pro controller and it worked fine. Kept my switch at 100% battery for a good hour of Zelda.

Sorry if this has been posted, i looked in the first post but couldn't see a recommended power bank for the Switch. I recently purchased a TP lInk one from John Lewis but i don't think its strong enough. I'm gonna take it back but what should i buy? Also i've see that you need a decent USB-c to USB-c cable? i have no idea re power output needed etc. Any help please. 

 

Oh my friends code is SW 1603-1198-8706
