Did you get a good offer? Think it is MASSIVELY overpriced right now...

Bought it in Hong Kong. HK$3500 for the console, some accessories and two games ~ roughly £345. Not a super deal, but I'm mainly buying for the Pokemon game coming in 2019. Nothing's too expensive for Pokemon 8)

Is the Switch only handheld or can you stream to a tv?

So the console is handheld, but it comes with a port that eases projection to TV with HMDI. You put the Switch pad on the port, unattach the controllers and you're playing on TV. Battery life for the handheld mode is only about 3-4 hours.

That's excellent. The small screen can get annoying for lengthy sessions.

Yep it is, had to check it myself since it would've been risky buying a console in Hong Kong.

Electrical outlets, I imagine.

Adapters exist #12. I have to use them for basically every device I own (we have UK outlets too)

Oh damn it lol

Hong Kong is the same as the UK so that was fine for me. Right now I'm in Indonesia which uses the same socket type as Germany, adapters work fine.

I don't think so. ;)

Seriously, I've had a few problems with them in different countries. As I said, all my devices come with chargers that fit your kind of outlets so I have to use adapters all the time at home but I've often had to use them abroad as well. I've found that often the pins aren't on the surface but deeper, so the charger needs to fit into a circle or square shape. Not all chargers always do. How come there isn't a standard shape? The three-pin ones have it (I've never seen any different ones at least).

Off-topic, I know :P

No as I don't have a PS4, but I will as soon as I buy one.

The game looks spectacular, but it probably won't turn out to be one of the best games I've played since it's not a decision-based RPG.
