    Nintendo Switch Lite Officially Revealed - $199, September 20th, Dedicated Handheld

    in Nintendo Discussion on 14 July 2019

    Just want to point out that the Switch had shortages for, what, the first six months of its life? And iirc was still supply constrained to some extant for the first year? Lowering the opening price would not have improved sales when you're already selling all of your available stock. ...

    potato_hamster said: psychicscubadiver said: Dude... your reason is literally 'I don't think hybrid consoles exist outside of market speak'. ... nope. I just can't imagine what a legitimately hybrid console would look like, or what its feature set would be. I'd have to put a lot of thought into that. But to reiterate, if Nintendo's definition of "hybrid console" is good...

    potato_hamster said: Barkley said: So you can't come up with a single reason that the Switch isn't a valid home console, your only point is that it can do something extra that home consoles can't. Your argument then is you don't think hybrid consoles can exist, you should have led with that. Meanwhile I shall ignore you and your agenda. I came up with several reasons...

    What was the Greatest Launch Title of all Time?

    in Gaming Discussion on 07 July 2019

    HoloDust said: Chrkeller said: I can't see claiming BotW was restrictive. The game pretty much let the player determine how to play the game. You speak of Gerudo Valley.... completely optional, the player doesn't even have to go there. I haven't played Morrowind, but I have played Oblivion and Skyrim. Both have linear stories. Meaning the story has to be played sequentially. BotW...

    HoloDust said: Wyrdness said: I know Morrowind just fine I touched upon earlier in players having locked in approaches to their choices of freedom in other games this is what BOTW does away with, Morrowind is a step above the likes of Mass Effect and such in this regard but still takes the same sort of route. Well, different strokes I guess - for me BotW, apart from...

    What was the Greatest Launch Title of all Time?

    in Gaming Discussion on 06 July 2019

    Here's an easy way to tell if something is a 'killer app': Would the sales of that particular console have been much lower if it didn't have that game? If the answer is 'yes' then it doesn't matter whether the game was exclusive or not. Would the sales of the Switch have been much lower if it didn't have BotW? Yes, therefore it's a 'killer app'. ...

When the casual audience look for games/reasons to buy a PlayStation or Xbox, they look primarily for Call of Duty, FIFA, Grand Theft Auto, and NBA 2K, games that have become synonymous with the PlayStation and...

    NPD: PS4 2016 vs Switch 2019

    Azantix said: Huh, maybe Switch is on pace to beat PS4 lifetime? Maybe? I'm not sure, I'm not exactly the best at predicting stuff like this hehe In the US and Japan definitely, but PS dominates Europe and RoW so much that I figure they've got a solid chance of winning anyway. ...

    Why is Nintendo the only one singled out with shutting down fan games?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 04 July 2019

    Also because the game creators don't take the step of changing the game and getting outside of the copyright imo. That group making the My Little Pony fighting game got CnD'ed by Hasbro, but they just changed the character designs to something unique and re-wrote the plot of the game, changing nothing about the gameplay. I realize it's no small feat to change a lot of assets, but it's the...
