GameStop said in a press release that its "initial allotment" of Switch consoles has been reserved, but that it is "working closely with Nintendo to get additional Nintendo Switch units". We have no idea if Nintendo really does plan to implement VR at some stage in the Switch's life and if those plans are at risk based on the platform's shaky start. Super Mario is the franchise you want to kick things off with on a new console or handheld and Zelda could be included in that immediate launch window or release it in the summer or fall. Personally, I think it's an effective commercial that shows off the basic functionality of the Switch. The Nintendo Switch doubles as both a home and portable console, making it more useful. That is, until Nintendo formally revealed the system.

It seems that Gearbox Software would not be launching this third sequel in the newest gaming console, the Nintendo Switch. They only opened late last week and while Nintendo still claims that there won't be stock issues around launch, finding one to buy now at its $300 launch price is not proving easy.

Turns out the Nintendo Switch doesn't have that much storage under the hood, after the hardware specs were dropped, and it recently was discovered that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild would eat up nearly half of your internal storage if downloaded to the device. While the Switch may not be able to best its opponents with power, its hybrid nature (can be taken on the go like a handheld) and unique lineup of games will be the points that Nintendo pushes. While we may not know all the games planned for the new system, we do know a game that will NOT be coming: Borderlands 3. You can also compete in frenetic online matches like before.
