    I am underwhelmed by my 4K TV and maybe X1X already has the GPU power for 9th gen.

    Machiavellian said: I wonder if the difference seen makes a bigger difference if the assets are 4K. Which games actually use 4K assets and resolution. I would believe those games should show a much better difference in image quality. It's simpler and more complicated. The simple part is that if you have 4K x 4K texture assets available (for every texture in the game), getting them...

    DonFerrari said: From what I hear seems like deserved Came to say pretty much this. Bugthesda strikes again. It may or may not be the engine itself, but Gamebryo / Creation seems to be a shaky foundation for big Bethesda games. Whatever went wrong with FO3 / NV / Oblivion / Skyrim happened again. Bethesda fucked up with FO76. The code is buggy. They should assert(3) more....

    Why are third party games selling well on Switch?

    Miyamotoo said: MajorMalfunction said: Some money. They don't want *some* money, they want it all. GTAV NSW sales would probably not be noticed by 2K/Rockstar. If it's a 32 GB cart, it'll make about 21 million total, with 100% sell-though, but before development costs and ads, etc. are paid for.  If it's a 16 GB cart, it'll make more (ballpark: 30 million) GTAV would...

    Alkibiádçs said: MajorMalfunction said: Cost of carts mainly. All three take a chunk of sales as revenue (licensing). These costs are unavoidable, but for NSW, a 32 GB carts costs $20 or more / each. 8GB carts are in line with what MS/Sony charge for BD-50s used by XB1/PS4. 16 GB carts are in the middle. I did not include development costs, as those vary with...

    Mnementh said: MajorMalfunction said: Indies are generally lower-cost endeavours wrt. developing and publishing. 400K sales is a hit SF2 because it's thirty years old. AAA doesn't give a shit. They make 27 million off 1m sales. Publishing is 20m upfront, net profit is 7m. Same revenue on PS4XB1, but you only spend 12m. If you're a business, what would you choose? Unless the...

    TheMisterManGuy said: MajorMalfunction said: I need receipts. Octopath has broken 1 million, Skyrim has broken 1 million. Almost 20 million sold and only 2 third party games breaking a million is not an indicator that games universally sell well on Switch. I'll give you Nintendo games, no doubt, but third parties are high and dry for the most part. IMO, it's not getting every...

    TheMisterManGuy said: Now of course, Switch obviously isn't getting every AAA third party title, it's still a tablet with clear limitations. But it's still a powerful, well designed piece of kit that speaks not just to Nintendo fans, but to the gaming audience as a whole. And that's why third party games are doing so well on it. I need receipts. Octopath has broken 1 million,...

    PAOerfulone said: DonFerrari said: If the quickly growing userbase gives less profit than the stablished ones, yes it is profit-oriented to keep on the stablished. One would have a hard time proving these companies not launching some games and launching others made it to lose money out of hate for Nintendo. But it's more profit, nonetheless. If they were losing money on...

    in Nintendo Discussion on 07 August 2018

    DonFerrari said: MajorMalfunction said: Yeah, no one in the industry owes Nintendo fans (or anyone else for that matter) anything. It's business. If they want your money, they'll get it by making games you want to buy. If they decide for any reason that it's not going to work, they should explain it for sure, but they still don't owe you anything. Making games to "compensate" is...

    in Nintendo Discussion on 07 August 2018

    PAOerfulone said:  [EDITED FOR SIZE] As for the 3rd parties, they need to do two things: A) Multiplatform titles that will also be on Switch need to start being released on the same day as the PS4 and Xbox One versions. Last year, it was understandable why they would release the Switch version much later. But from here on out, they need to be "Day Of". With the Switch having been...

    zorg1000 said: MajorMalfunction said: (1) I was specifically taking about that market segment (Western/Japanese AAA games). I agree, but Nintendo kinda sold it as both. People have their hopes up for those games. They got a taste with Skyrim and Doom and Wolfenstein. It's gonna come crashing down. E3 was pretty big IMO. Not 1 multiplat announced for Switch, IIRC. Lots of smaller...
