Hmm Maybe I should get that new nintendo console everyone is screaming about
5 months later it is still out of stock everywhere
So is it really that popular or is nintendo just shit/intentionally not making many?

Artificial scarcity in an attempt to increase demand. They do this with everything they release. It's getting really old. Considering how everyone has stopped talking about this thing for the most part it would probably have stopped selling by now if they stocked it like any normal company does.

If I do the insurance will cost more than the car. I don't want to play the kike game. I have been poorfagging since I was 18 and I got it down to a science. If I suddenly need to pay for a car I would have to switch my cool part time job for a boring wage slave one which would eat into my study time.

I use a $40 + old controller to emulate snes and ps1 games but I pretty much beat everything I wanted to play. You get a lot of vidya playing done when you have that much time to kill. I haven't played a game made after the year 2000 in a long time.

Are you still in high school? Someone wont start bullying you on the bus for having your DS out. You are a scared beta nerd who thinks a big mean jock will walk up next to you an beat you up at any moment.
Even if someone did say something about it you can ignore them or tell them to fuck off. If you are on public transit 99% of the people you will see are in no better shape than you.

Where do you get ostracized for playing a 3ds in public. I've never witnessed anyone giving a shit ever. Only autists are self conscious enough that they think anyone gives a shit what they're doing. Normal people don't give a shit about what some random is doing and even if they do pay attention it will be in their head for 5 minutes at the most before they think about more important stuff.

all that projecting
user, that tells me a lot about your internal vulnerabilities. You're trying to put forth this "I don't care, fuck the world" attitude, but internally you're still stuck in your high school days because that's the first place you slipped back to when confronted. You need to work on some self knowledge, fam, because your current attitude clearly isn't working out for you.

You probably don't consciously notice when you cut yourself off from the world with your face glued to the screen. Leisurely reading a book on your break, on the other hand, and you'll have girls asking you what you're reading assuming you have average/above average facial aesthetics and aren't obese. It's an excellent conversation starter, and a far greater workout for your brain as you're actively using your imagination to visualize what you're reading, vs playing the mental equivalent of Blue's Clues on your Switch.

Even if using a handheld in public is seen as normal, there are better things you could be doing with your time, like reading a book instead of playing Breath of Ubisoft. Kindles go for about $80 too, so it's cheaper, a better use of transport time and it'll be easier to recoup your losses after Jamal robs your sorry ass.

You can't say that while posting on Holla Forums user.
Reading a book
I do read. I have multiple hobbies though I don't see how reading a book that isn't class related is somehow miles better than playing a game.
Kindles go for $80
Actually 40. Why do you think someone who plays vidya can't also read? Why are you telling people what they should do with their time when you are spending it on Holla Forums?

You're so full of shit it's unbelievable I don't even own a handheld but whenever I read a book I'm always more absorbed in the book and less conscious of the world around me than playing a video game because reading a book actually takes some concentration and visualization, whereas almost no video games require that same amount of concentration

Adam Scott

A little of both. I remember reading how BOTW has over 100% of an attach rate. I've been seeing Switchs start popping up in stores around my big city, so it may depend on where you're living. The appeal comes from playing console games on the go (especially quick 2 player games). The battery life varies depending on the game, screen brightness, and if airplane mode is on. Considering your commute time is 3-4 hours, something like BOTW only lasts 3 max, so either charge when you get to your location. Nice thing about smartphone addicts is they've made outlets easier to access in public locations. You can also balance it out with smaller games, like a used copy of disgaea 5 if NISA hasnt ruined it to the point of not even worth playing. Overall, only get it now if you're absolutely dying to play those games out now on the go and you're willing to pay for a brand new console AND brand new games. If you can wait, then you should. Just get an old used PSP for cfw and emulators, very cheap and easy.

Since the wiiu was overproduced and undersold massively Nintendo made the switch to see if it would still be viable for them to stay in the console market, so of course less were produced.

Thanks to lower production Nintendo can have a steady flow of income rather than all the sales at the start of the console's life. This not only means more stability, what Nintendo is really after, but it means that every few months a new bundle with a newly released game can be released, which means that they can also boost the sales of that one game.

BUT not only this means constant flow of revenue, it means that everyone that wants a console will actually have to look hard to get one. This almost completely destroys the chance of getting a used one, possibly by someone that bought the console on a whim and doesn't actually want it. If you go on any site similar to craigslist for medium or small sized cities, you will have a very hard time finding someone trying to sell their switch.
Meaning Nintendo gets 100% (or close) of the revenue from the switch, fucking in the ass companies like gamestop that resell used stuff.

Chucking this up to "virtual scarcity" is very naive, Nintendo knows what they're doing, and they're taking advantage of the market.

You can't say that while posting on Holla Forums user.
I can if i'm saying that there's better things to do than playing current year Nintendo games.
I don't see how reading a book that isn't class related is somehow miles better than playing a game.
Considering the games are okay at best and behind a $400 paywall, reading a good story on the bus is more worth it.
Why do you think someone who plays vidya can't also read?
I think a lot of people today don't read.
Why are you telling people what they should do with their time when you are spending it on Holla Forums?
Why does a smoker try to convince his kids not to smoke?

When I used to wagecuck at Panera Bread, I'd always take my lunch in one of the booths, eat a small bowl of broccoli cheddar or french onion soup in a bread bowl, and then read for the next 20 minutes. In the year that I worked there, I had random girls and a few guys sit down in my booth and start chatting me up easily 50+ times.

If you aren't being approached, and you aren't unattractive, it's because you look unapproachable. This isn't normalfag shit, it's about not projecting to the world how much of a sperg you are when you're in public.

I understand you, OP. I work a shitty job to pay the bills and right now and I can get away with having 2 days off every week so that I don't lose my mind. But if I had to get a car, insurance, gas and having to save money for inevitable part failure would lose me those 2 days, and I'm not okay with that. Biking is better for you anyways and much cheaper to maintain.

Nintendo has a history of making their system always be out of stock, but this time it might not entirely be their doing. There have been shortages of RAM in the industry lately so they are probably at least a little bit lacking in all the parts they need to meet demand.

Colton Jones

There are always lots of the damn things where I live. I just don't want one. Maybe when Smash comes out, depending on the new content. When I was taking the bus, I used one of these loaded up with old games to entertain myself. Beat Spyro 1-3, Crash 1-3, and a bunch of other stuff. It was comfy.

You can play every handheld nintendo game in existance, including every DS game with a 7 bucks flashcart from aliexpress, and Virtual Console injects for Gameboy Advance, which work great.
Retroarch works fine for Genesis games.
Has good standalone emulators for SNES, PC-Engine and NES

Also you get some good games on the 3DS itself Like the 3D classics collection

So is it really that popular or is nintendo just shit/intentionally not making many?
they're probably trying to keep the price artificially inflated, but they could just be continually out of stock. IIRC corps make a deal with factories to produce X amount of consoles per year, so if the demand increases beyond that they're always out of stock.
