Did anyone really expect them to put a 500GB-1TB hard drive in this thing? It's designed to be portable, and unlike disc-based consoles that want to dump the bulk of every game onto internal storage to cut load times, these games are on carts. If you want to go digital for most of your purchases, that's on you, but you have that option. Pay your $40 convenience tax and stick a 128GB micro SD in there.
No, I expected them to put in a decent amount of NAND at that price point. 32GB is a joke for a gaming console, even with cartridge media. That's ok though, buying your storage is part of the death by a thousand cuts theme of this console apparently. They have the nerve to charge $50 for 1,2 Switch which is pack in tech demo fluff if I've ever seen it.
I agree though that the launch is pretty light on games. I sat through that presentation as almost everything said "spring" or "summer" or "holidays" (dammit though, that new Mario looks awesome). I've been looking forward to this console, yet even I was ready to wait a few months. But then those cheeky bastards snuck in what I was wanting to see all night at the very last minute... I felt like Rick Flair when that Zelda trailer ended: "WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"
I don't know, Zelda is apparently running better on the Wii U and I think I will just play it there. I'll wait for prices to drop and games to come out, I've done Nintendo launches before and they're always shit.
