Okay... so Nintendo, is going against what would've been the wiser route in our opinion (speaking on behalf of 
SDGT Ent) by not doing this presentation in 2016. We are not going to argue with them because we aren't making
a dime off of the console... but when it comes to money, there are many gamer's who need to save up. If you don't
have to... here is an imaginary parade in your honor..... (insert imaginary parade here). Cool, I hope you've enjoyed
that, now back to the point:
Granted you can begin saving up now (and saving up in general because its a wise thing to do for rainy days) but
specifics help to know what needs to be saved for what. In this case, knowing the price of the Nintendo Switch could
mean the difference between a pre-order and buying it down the line because the price caught you off guard (some
kids do work around their neighborhood that they may want to increase to meet that price and teens may want to
work the max hours they can as minors). I'd say... save up $500 or so, just to cover the range... and if it requires you
to save anymore... its best to wait until it decreases in price from that "Oh hell naw" category.
Another reason why the price should be known soon, is because... the Holidays are here... staring us face to face like
what's up?!!!!! and... some gamer's are also parents (yes... it happens). There may be a budget for the holidays and
instead of a kid or that adult enjoying something a little less pricey temporarily in order to save the lion's share of
their gifts total worth for something like a... Nintendo Switch, they may just go with something else. I say that to say,
the Nintendo Switch might end up being a December 2017 gift for some based on something that shouldn't be
dropped so close to the launch window. Nintendo is playing with fire.
