It's also important to remember that US sales tax varies state by state and isn't included in the quoted price, whereas Australia's GST rate is 10% across the board (New Zealand is 15%) and the stated retail price has to include it. For example, once the Californian sales tax rate of 7.25% is added, Californians will pay around US$320 for the Switch, or roughly AUD$425. Similarly, without GST, the Switch would cost roughly AUD$427.23 in Australia. With tax factored into the equation, the prices are much closer, but not identical.

Whether it's worthwhile will depend on your reaction to the hardware specs and launch titles; check out our full hands-on review to learn more.
