    Nintendo Switch and the main reasons it will be a flop W.I.P.

    in Gaming Discussion on 12 January 2018

    SegataSanshiro said: arcaneguyver said: I'm still stupified by this. They're replacing an overpriced console with a different overpriced console, with a lot of the same games. I don't see how this will appeal to those who passed on the WiiU. Almost 1 year later and I'm responding to this post. The same thing was said about Wii. Oh, I also love to watch people eat crow about...

    Switch-The platform of ports and shovelware

    in Nintendo Discussion on 11 January 2018

    Bear in mind that this Direct only covers what we're getting during the first half of the year. I don't see why the second half won't be even better, especially if Kimishima expects to sell 20 million Switches throughout this year....

    Nintendo Switch has become the fastest selling video game system of all time in the US

    Flilix said: cosmic_drift said: Switch will most certainly surpass 30m in its lifetime It's possible, but it's still too early to tell. I could become a huge hit (like the Wii and DS), or maybe it will have amazing legs, but we can't tell that yet after just one year. Not really.  If the Switch has already reached 13 mil by now then I don't see how it won't...

    When will 3DS owners migrate to Switch, and in what capacity?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 03 January 2018

    duduspace1 said: It will happen when Nintendo is finally ready to kill off the 3DS, the signs will be a Switch price drop and most likely a more compact switch SKU targeted solely for handheld use. I could definitely imagine something like this:  a Switch "Mini" of sorts.  It would operate the same as a regular Switch but with no detachable Joy-Cons, however the system...

    When will 3DS owners migrate to Switch, and in what capacity?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 02 January 2018

    It's pretty much etched in stone at this point that the Switch is Nintendo's next handheld, as well as their next home console.  However the Switch isn't exactly being marketed as a successor to the 3DS, and Nintendo has vaguely promised some degree of "support" for the 3DS that will continue through this year.   On top of that Nintendo's handheld market has existed separately from...

    Why do Nintendo handhelds do better than their home consoles?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 28 December 2017

    - Pokemon - Handhelds are more popular in Nintendo's home market (Japan) - Pokemon - Nintendo hasn't faced much competition in the handheld arena - Pokemon - They're cheaper, MSRP-wise and cheaper/easier to develop for - Pokemon - They get more third-party support - Pokemon - Pokemon ...

    Prediction: Japan will drive Nintendo Switch sales and sell more in the region than in the U.S.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 27 December 2017

    GhaudePhaede010 said: I predicted this prediction would come once people saw how well it was maintaining itself in Japan. Someone was bound to believe it will not sell as well in the other regions and be a mega success in Japan. Vita was actual competition for 3DS in Japan by the way. It is not like the market situation was the same in Japan as in the United States (for example) in terms...
