    Ditto. At the very least it'll be after Christmas for me, but even then the Switch is due out in March.

    Big W website says limit of 1 per customer, hopefully they enforce it (as much as they can I guess).

    Ahh might just buy one for the sake of it.... undecided, doesn't make sense but sometimes you buy things just cause the hype.

    I'm going to head out lunch time on launch day to try and find one. There are stacks of NES games I didn't get the chance to play back in the day. Im looking forward to a blast from the past :thumbup:

    Doesn't seem to have an audio port? Just HDMI?

    Correct.

    As long as there's no HDCP, you could buy an after market HDMI box that either generates analogue audio, or even ones that offer YPbPr/Component or RGB/VGA out as well. A great deal of people use this method to get good quality analogue signals our of HDMI products like the Raspberry Pi and others.

    The TV has a TOSLINK output, will just use that.

    Have you done that before? Audio passthru varies a lot from TV to TV.

    No Dolby or 5.1 sound from this device, just boring old PCM stereo. Optical pass through should handle it fine.
