I was able to get the last Switch Preorder in my state (I assume*) GameStop tells me I can trade my Wii U intowards the Switch and get about $200 (there's a bonus $75 trade credit since I'm a pro member) credit towards the Switch, which sounds pretty cool to me, since I didn't love the Wii U and I dont collect consoles like I once did. I'll sell the games on eBay. The only thing I'll regret when I see the Wii U would be the digital games I got for it, mostly Fatal Frame. I'm gonna do my best to beat Fatal Frame before I trade it in. I got The Wii U and maybe like 50 or so games, and I barely even played it :/ I felt kinda burned by the Wii U and I hope the Switch won't repeat that feeling for me. Hows the digital game system for the Wii U? has it gotten any better? as in if I sell my Wii U now, and lets saw a year or so goes by and I find one cheap at a yardsale, can I relink my purchases? or once I sell my console are they as good as gone? I doubt the Switch will support the Wii U purchases.
What is everyone else doing with thier Wii U if getting the Switch? keeping it hooked up? attic/closet time? or selling it?
If anyones looking for Wii U games, and if I end up going through with the trade in, I'll be posting them up here for sale.
*The Switch sold out day 1 from what I know, I called several GameStops near me, all sold out, except 1. I heard they got a good amount of Switches they could take preorders on, this was at 5PM and they closed at 9PM, however I worked late that day and didnt get home until around 10PM. I called the GameStop first thing the next morning (while on my way in the car) they just opened and I was told there were 2 left, grey joycon model, I got there at 10:04 and was 3rd in line. The first 2 customers were already being helped, I could over hear 1 of them talking about the Switch, and they preordered it. Drats!! 1 left, the 2nd customer ahead of me was to far away to overhear, but looks like they just purchased a PS4 game and and a PSN card. I got called up next and preordered the Switch, I got the last one (and since it was the next day, I'm assuming its the last one in RI and probally many other places/state) once I said I was there to pre-order the Switch, the employee yells over to the other employee that its the last one and don't take any more pre-orders, 3 of the 5 people from line behind walk out sad.
