Some Of Those Stores You Wouldn't Expect: It's easy to think about the big box stores above when buying a major product, but there are plenty of other outlets that may get a few Switches even if they don't focus on games. But quantity doesn't equate to quality, and what players are left with is something fun, but not quite the first impression you'd want from a console as exciting as the Switch. I'll certainly be keeping an eye on the Switch as it releases this week, and I hope you join me.

Nintendo will launch its newest home entertainment console this Friday. "Asking $300 for a new console without a bundled game is a comparatively higher barrier to entry for consumers, considering that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are already discounted and come with a free game", said SuperData. The Wii U Game Pad wasn't exactly the most elegant piece of hardware out there. Seamlessly switching between an at-home console experience to a handheld one, as its namesake suggests, Nintendo seems to have put all its eggs in a convertible basket in order to try and stay relevant. Minor technical problems aside, this is one of gaming's greatest and most storied series returning with something we've never seen before. This time around, the company jumps into the game console conversation with a twist.

With not much longer to wait until the highly anticipated Nintendo Switch becomes available for all those who pre-ordered it.

Beyond launch, simply use the store locator link above to get the telephone numbers of nearby stores. The controller also apparently works on Android devices, but users have reported a bit of lag when used this way. These controllers are small, but very nifty, with impressive rumble features and motion controls.

National Football League free agency: Chiefs release Jamaal Charles
Some will say the Eagles shouldn't sign Charles because he's not a long-term fit for Philadelphia, and I understand that argument. He sees this as Charles played college football at the University of Texas and the Cowboys are one of the contenders in the NFC.

As shown, games in the $40 to $49.99 range give you 10 gold coins for a physical purchase and 50 gold coins for a digital one.
