What is the Switch?

Chances are that you already know the basics about the Nintendo Switch console, however, if you don’t then you might want to know more. The idea behind the Switch is that it is a hybrid console, it is not only your standard home-based console, but it is also a handheld device too. It has a tablet-esque screen that is fully touch screen, as well as the “joy-con” controllers, which are detachable and can be slid into the side of the console when not needed.

How do you play the switch?

There are three ways that you can play the Switch. TV mode, handheld mode and tabletop mode.

·        TV mode is when you insert your Switch into the docking station, this means that you can play the games that you have on your television. You can play games wirelessly using the Joy-Con controllers, from the comfort of your own sofa. You can, if you wish, buy a Switch Pro Controller which you can then play on instead.

·        Handheld mode is when you take out the Switch from the docking station. You can transport it around with you and play on the go, no matter where you are. The controllers are able to be directly attached to the sides of the screen, which makes everything nice and easy to move around with.

·        Tabletop mode is the final mode that you can play the Switch in, as the name suggests, you will place the Switch on a tabletop, using the inbuilt kickstand. You will then detach the controllers and allow one or two players to enjoy games together.

What makes the Switch different?

So, why choose the Switch over any other console that you can buy? The thing about the Switch is that it is ideal for families and those who like to play socially. Not only this, but it can be enjoyed alone, making the ideal combination of the two. Ultimately, the best thing about a Switch is that it is a whole lot of fun and isn’t fun something that you should always aim for when you are gaming?

If you own a Nintendo Switch, then you can sell games online that you are done playing with. This means that you can earn yourself a bit of money, perhaps that you can then put towards treating yourself and your family to a new game to try out.

Not only this, but if you are thinking about buying this console, then it is important to keep in mind that you can pick up a trade-in switch, which will ensure that you can buy the console that you are looking for, at a great price.
