I missed the window for the pre-order. And the lady at walmart didn't feel like giving me the pre-order or didn't know it was a thing. I"m not sure. Stupid walmart.<br><br>
Anyway maybe I'll try standing in line some place on the 2nd to see if i get lucky. Otherwise I'm going to have a stack of sealed games with nothing to play them on. Ya, I pre-ordered a few games even though the console isn't a sure thing at this point.

New Zelda Breath of the Wild news came out today about a "season pass" like DLC feature.<br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">Available from March 3 for $19.99 USD / £17.99 (Australian price unknown at time of writing), the Expansion Pass, which will be available for both the Wii U and Nintendo Switch versions of the game, will offer two extra content packs, to be released later in 2017, neither of which can be purchased individually.</div>

Looking at the game list, I'm kind of surprised there isn't a full fledged Minecraft being put out for the Switch. Maybe Nintendo didn't want to give MS any detail on the console before launch...

Thank you. 720p should be plenty for that handheld to be honest. I hope the big screen experience is solid too.<br><br>
Will be expecting your thoughts <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif">

Sadly for you, my best friend had one extra so I just sent him the money for it. No stores have them afaik. You should just check your local ones typically my targets always have a few on the first day if you're willing to get up a little early.

Sadly I missed the first round of pre-orders. I'm on the list at the local Best Buy. Going to go to their midnight launch here and see if I can pick one up. Going to keep my name on the list either easy.
