Yep.....Slept on it last night and I'm out.  Too rich for my blood at the present.  Will reassess near Xmas this year.

Though I fear that if I'm thinking this way as a long time fanboy.......How many others are doing the same?

I'm actually a little sad this morning that the Switch could flip harder than the Wii U.

So what's that in Aus?  On a straight conversion $299USD is $399AUD.

If we add some Aussie electronic tax to this it could be $450-$500?

Hmm.....
