- Gamers – would you swap a PS4 for a Switch?
In the past, I have loved gaming, although I was always a Nintendo fanboy.
In my ‘smoking’ days, I could spend 6-7 hours playing battle mode on Block Fort (N64 Karts), and have owned every Nintendo console since the NES. Including the bastard GC.
A couple of years without a console made me itch to play something, so at Christmas I bought a PS4. Got a few games – I wanted the snowboard one, and bought the newest Unchartered along with a platformer, a driver and a singing one for the kids.
It has been turned on maybe 5 times.
Now I’m reading about the Switch, and with The option to pay Karts I’m considering swapping the PS4 for something I think I’ll play.
I guess I’ll be going backwards…but anyone got an idea of the best way of doing this? Sell then buy? Go to CEX? Spam the local FB groups?
My son is telling me to wait for the remastered MW2, but even that couldn’t beat razzing around chucking shells at people….Posted 2 years ago
Personally, i would wait on the Switch, it’s ‘in’ right now, wait 6 months and watch the price crash. Switch is a bit gimmicky, there are too many upcoming games on the PS4 to be excited about. If karts is all you want get a wii or a DS and keep the PS4
You say that, but I’d completely forgotten just how fun the very Japanese/Nintendoey games are – there’s just a certain character and joy to them that a lot of western games companies cant match – despite huge budgets.Posted 2 years ago
I’ve got a gaming laptop and a desktop, still really enjoyed messing around on the Switch.
There’s only so much Warhammer: Total War, Elite Dangerous or Lock On/Falcon 4/IL2 that I can handle before real life/riding/the wife catches up with me.
Plus PC gaming is really anti-social unless you’re counting your online/gaming mates.Posted 2 years agorockhopper70Member

They love it, it looks amazing and the game is massive.
Tempted by a switch but at the moment, for a £300+ outlay, it doesn’t make sense.
If they drop in price then maybe.
Mario kart on the Wii u is great, four player racing is smooth and chaotic!
TBF Cougar, graphics card advancement is happening at a snailspace now – the latest generation of Nvidias and ATIs really arent that much better than the last generation and in the case of ATI the generation before that.
Plus the games are mostly console ports so mid range cards are playing a lot of new/newish games maxxed out.Posted 2 years ago
