Let's unbox the Nintendo Switch and some of its accessoriesOut March 3 for $299, the Nintendo Switch is the company's brand new hybrid console. Here's what's in the box.
Hey, what's up everybody. Look what I've got. It's the Nintendo Switch, comes out March 3rd for $300. Here is the official unboxing. I'm gonna take care of that right now. Let's see what's inside, what you get for $299 in the box of Nintendo Switch. See the tablet and those joy con controllers. Let's take this out. [BLANK_AUDIO] All right, we've got an HDMI cable, some power junk. [BLANK_AUDIO] Here's the joy con Grip I think they call this, you can attach this guys and used it as a standard controller, we also got the little bumpers for the a controllers for those joy con controllers, can show you what one both looks like right there check that out. slips on to the side. And then you've got what appears to be the dock. This is where the switch tablet, the switch pad, the switch screen, whatever you wanna call it. This is where it's gonna live and sit. Let's get a close look at the screen. Real light, real compact. There you have it. There's the screen for the switch. What I'll do is it's got a little USB c-port under there, volume control all that stuff. Looks like a vent at the top too. Maybe this baby Would heat up a little bit. We'll had to wait and see. I'm gonna attach one of these controllers here, easy enough and I'll attach this last one, so you can see what the whole tablet assemble looks like [BLANK_AUDIO] There it is. There you have it. Pretty cool. All right, that was easy. I've also got some accessories I want to show you guys. This looks like a carrying case, which will be really useful, because man I'd be scared to scratch that thing up. This is extra though, this doesn't come with the $299 package. So we've got like a little space here for some games, some other goodies you can sit here in another smash pocket.I don't know am I doing that right? That works, see this is pretty substantial in sizes, it's like one of those like visor or something I don't know. Sun visors. All right, also comes with a, what is this? Screen protector. Which you know makes me a little nervous. Okay you're leading with that. Maybe the screen needs to be protected. That worries me because I worry about that kind of stuff. But there you have it. We'll let that live in there. And then let's check out So this where it gets confusing, where comes with the actual kit is this Mm-hm this is a grip from the joy controls it doesnt charge them you have to buy a separate charging grip. For them to charge those two little Joy-Con controllers when they're not plug in, which is not the best but that's what we're dealing with and men, they're really identical right? So, this is what you get when you pay for the Joy-Con Charging grip, that's this guy right here. The one that comes in the box with the Switch console is this one. They look nearly identical, but the difference is the charging one has this sort of translucent Back on if you can tell Mm-hm it's a little dark but the translucent back also has the charge the USB-C charger at the front where's the a non charging one doesnt have that if you can make that out there, so yeah a if you want this grip charge this joy con controllers, you need this guy and that's an extra cost so just put that out here. As well, all right. So, that's what you get with the Joy-Con charging grip and then finally, the last accessory that I feel like everybody is gonna want just judging on our sort of previous stuff is the Pro Controller, this is $70 but, It looks like it might be the best way to play games. Again, we haven't really had enough time to make that declaration, but that's sort of the vibe that we've been getting. So here is what's inside the box for that. It has its own USB-C charger, just like everything else. And yeah, there you go. Here is the Pro Controller for the Switch. Real nice translucent sort of a design there. Got a USBC port at the top. And just a real yep yeah. This feels right. I haven't played a lot with this But yeah, this feels like where you wanna be. Maybe over these guys. But again, we dont know just yet. Big bummer though, it's $70, that's a lot of money to pay. That's nearly a third of what the whole console costs. But that's the pricing structure we're left with. All right, then this is the game we're gonna look at. It's a pretty small case. If you remember the Vita cases, that's like the closest thing I can think of. Not the Vita ones, the Vita or the PSP ones, if your memory goes back that far. All right, so inside, okay. Not a whole lot going on, just his little tiny card. That's pretty sad. That seems like a little bit of a waste but we're not going to point any fingers. Let's see what it looks like when you put the game in the console. Can we do that? Wow, get a closeup of this little, tiny little game. They figured it out. Modern science is amazing. Somehow, Link is inside here. Look at this. I'm gonna put this inside. [SOUND] The switch. [SOUND] Let's see where. There's the game card. Can you get a close up to that there? See that? So you pop in the game cards. Okay? There you go. Spring loaded. [BLANK_AUDIO] Very nice. We're all set to got. But I can't turn it on. Not yet. We're gonna have a full review in the coming days. And you're gonna find out whether or not this whole thing is worth it. Thanks so much for watching. My name is Jeff Backalar. We'll see you soon. [MUSIC]
