    Sadly, I do not have the money to get the switch and I don't want to get it for only one game.
    I'm not really sure what to do, should I bother saving for it? I heard the testfire is out so perhaps
    some people can tell me if it's worth the investment from what they've played so far.

    I wish I could be part of the testfire, but getting a switch just isn't in the cards for me, not right now anyway. My Squadmates have said it's really fun though.

    If you are interested in other games besides Splatoon, then it may be worth it, but just buying a console for one game? Kind of a tough sell in my opinion. I guess you gotta ask yourself how much you love Splatoon, and whether or not it is worth the price of admission of buying a new console.

    Splatoon 2 could be literally the only game on the switch and I'd buy it.

    Splatoon 1 is already not only my favourite NIntendo Game, but my favourite game of all time and I've been gaming since I was like, 6. That's almost 20 years!

    Unless I'm missing something, the testfire isn't until next week.

    Something to think about is trading games/old consoles in. We couldn't afford the Switch so me and my bf pooled up our old, unplayed games and consoles together and traded them in. Paid for all the console and Zelda too!

    It's all good. I can't afford one either but I probably will have the money to buy it and a couple of games at the end of the year. I heard that the Switch is quite faulty and there are a few kinks with it, so I would just wait and observe its success, bundles, and a "premium console" of sorts if they decide to fix the dock and the technical difficulties people have been having. Remember that black Friday saves lives (it also takes a few too, but that's besides the point).

    Having a really great time with my Switch so far. Zelda is great and I'm super excited for Splatoon and the Testfire. Take a look at the lineup for this year and see how much else interests you. I'm personally excited for Splatoon, Mario, ARMS, possibly Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (if it actually releases this year) and a bunch of the early-development and indie stuff they've shown at the Switch reveal and Nindies presentation.

    I know how you feel. Just quit my cushy job and am now working at mcdonalds, so the switch might come a little late. Theres no way im trading in my collection of games either.
