Expected at launch but delayed due to production constraints, Nintendo Australia has finally dropped word that the Nintendo Switch Dock will go on sale May 26 for $129.95. Basically everything but the Switch unit itself, the separate dock will come packed with an AC adapter and HDMI cable. Described as "ideal for those with multiple TVs." And those willing to spend considerable money to avoid moving cables.
Now, in principal we like the idea of an additional dock. And the Nintendo Switch is a great console that we're still playing regularly (thanks Zelda for being so massive, and awesome!), but there's no denying that when it comes to the dock portion of the console Nintendo cut a few corners in its construction. Compared to the unit it looks, well, kinda cheap. And really only acts as a plastic charger and HDMI hub that lets the Switch run with a higher clock speeds to reach 1080p output.
That being said, we're still interested in picking one up. Because, well, the Switch is damn good.
