Nintendo Switch is worth the price tag

#GoWithSwitch and win (more than just the Nintendo prize)

How much do I love my Nintendo Switch? Spoiler: A LOT. If you don’t believe me here are a stack of articles I’ve written in the past year explaining how this console is all sorts of rad:





There are a lot more on the blog but those are some of my favourites. I love the console and, most importantly, I love that I can take it anywhere and play. That’s why the Switch is such a rad little device. It is powerful, the games are top class AND it is portable. Being able to travel with it makes all the difference.

Though, saying that, I’ve been banned from taking it out to dinner. Apparently I need to be more social and DOOM is distracting to people joining us. Pssht.

I’m not the only one who loves taking my Switch to weird and wonderful places. Turns out there is a community of folks who love carrying the console with them and playing on it in the strangest locations. To celebrate the creativity and fun, Nintendo has joined the party with their new #GoWithSwitch campaign – which aims to celebrate the awesomeness of gaming wherever you are. They’re collecting photos of fans from around the world who play on the console in weird and sometimes wacky locations. But they’re also inviting you to join in the fun!

You can enter the #GoWithSwitch competition with or without a Switch

The best part? You don’t need the console to take part (but it helps if you do). All you need to do is post an image of you playing on your Switch in a weird location OR post a picture of where you would play your Switch if you had one. Make sure to use the hashtag #GoWithSwitch and the best location stands the chance to win a R50 000 dream trip to a destination of their choice. How rad?

But because you’re a Tech Girl you have an added chance to win

Nintendo Switch is worth the price tag

The awesome folks at Nintendo have decided to reward Tech Girls a little more as well. If you enter #GoWithSwitch all you need to do is comment on this post with a link to your entry (remember entries need to go on Facebook and/or Instagram). Share your entry with me and I’ll choose a few of my favourites who will win INCREDIBLE Nintendo merch from the new South African Nintendo online store. Also, I’m picking the goodies so you know you’re going to get the absolute best swag.

So what are you waiting for? Post your locations, use #GoWithSwitch and then be sure to share your entry on this post so you can win even more! 

I’ll choose my winners at the end of March 🙂

    Can my daughter enter with her Nintendo 3DS ?

    • Reply Sam Wright March 9, 2018 at 12:12

      She doesn’t need a Switch to enter so I don’t see why that would be a problem
