Why the Switch made sense for me
I don’t play as many games as I used to, but instead of loading up my phone with a stack of games with “in-app purchases”, I figured I’d strip my phone down a
I traded in my PlayStation 4
Since I don’t game as much, I decided it was time to cut my losses with my PS4 and trade ‘er in. I was able to stack a good trade-in value along with a Nintendo Switch promo for a sweet deal on a new Switch. I ended up paying $156 (taxes in) for the Switch, Mario Kart and a few extras after the trade-in. Not a bad deal at all.
Nintendo doesn’t stream TV
I had a few decent games for PS4, but I mostly used it to stream Netflix, Prime & Plex TV. So when I wanted to watch a show, I had to turn on my PS4, log in, go to my TV apps and then away I go. The Switch doesn’t do any of that, so instead of using my Chromecast that would tie up my device on streaming, I went ahead and picked up an Amazon TV Fire Stick to deal with the streaming, and dang, it’s way easier than using my PS4, no regrets.
I travel sometimes
Whether it’s just going to visit fam, or taking a work trip, being able to put down a book and play some mindless games totally works for me.
The Nintendo Switch is just awesome
Nintendo did an amazing job at making such a versatile system. Taking it on the road, docking it on your television, it’s pretty amazing. Now, I know I probably don’t fit in Nintendo’s target market for these, but they’ve sold me.
To celebrate, I’ve revised an Etsy Listing
The “Player Set” is a popular Etsy listing of mine, where you can customize which controllers you’d like to have on your shirts. These sets have been popular for dad and babies, however, I’ve made them for couples and siblings too! I’ve added a new option where you can add in Nintendo Switch controllers and instead of using the 8-bit font, I have a Nintendo-inspired font. If you love Nintendo Switch and have a player 2 in mind, check it out!
