Day 1 Technology & Nintendo Switch Prep
In this episode:
- Day 1
technology and console adopters vs… not. The Nintendo
Switch will be out by
the time many if you listen to this, and we wanted to talk about
tech that we grab on Day 1. And tech that we wait for.
consoles or tech have you picked up on day one? For us, it depends.
Void grabbed Gamecube, Gamecube, GBA, PS2, Vive, and the Xbox 360,
while Beej was mostly a Month 1 person as supplies and money

of our Day 1 video game consoels were when we were younger and had
far more disposable income than we do as adults.
waited on a lot of consoles, too, whether it was for hardware
upgrades or some other reason. Beej waited on the 2DS, the PS3, and
the PS Vita, and they were all fantastic purchases. Void really

both pick what we get on Day 1 kind of by gut feeling. We weigh the
hype and whether we use it right away and how much we think it will
impact our lives. Do we think that it will be a positive and
consistent part of our lives? We don’t buy based on hype and what
is getting the most attention, but at some point you just have to
pull the trigger if you’re excited enough about it,
Nintendo Switch. We
recorded just a few days before the launch, and we are crazy
excited, but we hope the JoyCon woes are taken care of. Void is
getting one delivered to his doorstep so he can play as soon as he
gets home from work, and Beej has to wait on grabbing one because
he’s freelancing and money is spotty for the moment. If a new
full-time gig comes in, he will run out and breathe in the Breath
of the Wild.
