It's going to be a big week for the Nintendo Switch. At 3:00pm AEDT time on Friday, Nintendo will hold an online presentation showing off the console in greater depth. And the day after, the company is holding a hands-on event in Melbourne which I'll be attending.
Most people have already formed a view one way or another on what the Switch looks like and what it does. But perhaps one of the biggest questions that remains unanswered: how much will it cost?
The common orthodoxy says that the Switch will come in at the same price point as the Wii U, since Nintendo will be pushing for Wii/Wii U owners to upgrade (and hence they'll want to maintain some kind of parity on pricing). I don't think it's likely that it'll cost over $500: it's got largely the same hardware as the NVIDIA SHIELD, which is $US199 (so $270 not including shipping).
But that's all reasoned speculation on my part. What price do you think the Switch will come in at - and what price would it need to be to convince you to buy, or what price would it have to be to stop you from picking one up? Vote below!
