    Your sales expectations for 2020

    in Sales Discussion 2 days ago

    It's hard for me to guess Switch's numbers. They are up year over year by a significant margin, but IDK how their holiday season will be impacted by the new consoles. I think I'll say that it will be around one million higher than this year at 21M. So Switch 21M PS4 9M XB1 2.5M PS5 5M XSX 3.5M ...

I would love a Super Mario Strikers from them, but I could see them working on another Punch Out entry. Maybe an Arms 2 if there ever is such a thing.  ...

    Switch's 2017 vs Switch's 2019

    in Nintendo Discussion on 10 January 2020

    In terms of new games I think it's a bit of a toss up. 2017 had a huge impact with Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey.

    Metacritic best game of the decade according to the critics: The Legend Of Zelda BOTW

    in Gaming Discussion on 10 January 2020

    Random_Matt said: OTBWY said: And totally right. BotW is THE game of the decade, and not just that, it is one of the best games ever made. Can't wait for the sequel. In your opinion, game sucked from my time with it. I will never understand the people that think that BotW "sucked". Heck, I'd understand if you said it's "not my cup of tea", but to say it was...

    What are you hoping for out of BotW2?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 07 January 2020

    These type of threads bother me because I know what everyone will be asking for, no weapon breaking. Personally, I really liked the weapon breaking mechanic. It gave it a survival-esque type feeling. You couldn't rely on your weapons, sometimes you had to sneak by an encampment because it wasn't worth it. Sometimes your good weapon would break and you'd have to improvise. If that mechanic was...

    According to Mat Piscatella "Next Gen consoles sales will not have a major effect on Switch sales"

    in Sales Discussion on 03 January 2020

    We saw this with the PS4 once the Switch launched as well. The year the Switch launched (2017) was actually PS4's best selling year. I believe it was also Xbox One's second best selling year that year. Just because a new product is on the market doesn't mean that sales for the original product will be cannibalized, unless that product is a direct successor (e.g. PS3 sales are cannibalized by the...

    What do you want in a Switch 2?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 02 January 2020

    JRPGfan said: It changes based on newer/better technologies and designs.And it even varies from card to card (with same arch), depending on how balanced the card is.But yes, if Nvidia used the same technology, it did in the Switch, for the Switch 2.... it would be to be around 3,4 Tflops, to match the GPU compute the PS4pro can do. (3,4 Tflops x 1.24 = 4,2 Tflops of the PS4pro)The current...

    JRPGfan said: "The new Tegra Xavier T194 is capable of pushing out 1.4 TFLOPS at FP32"That uses ~30watts of power to do so, which is fine, when docked.Yes thats more or less what I've been saying.When docked, a Switch 2 will likely be around where the base PS4 is at now. Base PS4 while docked? You don't think that technology is going to improve much in the next four years at...

    What do you want in a Switch 2?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 31 December 2019

    haxxiy said: Power consumption and manufacturing node are factors here, though. The Tegra X1 consumed 10 - 15 watts to deliver 500 - 600 GFLOPS and even then it had to be underclocked to fit on the Switch. The figure you're quoting probably refers to the 30W TDP option. The Xavier chip under similar power constraints is a 600 - 800 GFLOPS chip. Even when you factor in the IPC gains of...

    Leynos said: The Xavier is not meant for mobile hardware. It's a large mother board and meant for cars/trucks. It's not designed for something mobile with a battery. Yes, the die size is roughly two and a half times that of the X1, but the power consumption is still in the 10-15W range. I'll concede, though.  The Adreno 650 is supposed to be capable 1.2TFLOPS of theoretical...

Well, that might not be available with todays technology, but who knows what might be capable in 3-4 years....

    Alien Isolation, the first game to look better on Switch than on PS4/XB1?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 04 December 2019

    Radek said: Sorry but if resolution can drop to 900p and even 756p I can't believe it's a better looking game than PS4 version at native 1080p. 756p is borderline last gen territory. As they stated in the video resolution isn't everything and doesn't mean inherently better image quality. Also, they explicitly state that it holds close to 1080p most of the time. Not to...

    Rumor: Tony Hawk and Activision are working on a new Pro Skater game

    in Gaming Discussion on 26 November 2019

    I remember them making Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD for the PS3 and 360 last generation. It was a psuedo-remake of THPS 1 and 2, with 3 as DLC. I say psuedo-remake because only 3 levels were from THPS1, 4 levels were from THPS2, and 3 levels were from THPS3. Anyway, the game was awful. The physics were not just wrong, they were a glitchy mess. Half the songs were from the original games, that part...

    The greatest loser; which console that lost its gen in sales do you love most?

    in Gaming Discussion on 18 November 2019

    For me it is definitely the Gamecube. With games like Super Mario Sunshine, two unique Zelda titles, Pikmin 1 and 2, Metroid Prime 1 and 2, 1080, Wave Race, the best F-Zero, Double Dash, Super Smash Bros Melee, some of the best Resident Evil experiences with 1 Remake and 4, and some actual decent third party support (Need for Speed, Soul Calibur, Medal of Honor, etc). It's too bad that the...

    What's the worst successor to a console, ever?

    in Gaming Discussion on 15 November 2019

    From a sheer sales point of view, the Wii U. Going from a console that sold over 100 million to one that barely sold over 10 million is definitely a bite in the butt. It had some good games, but, for the most part, it just wasn't good enough. From a marketshare/corporate point of view, the PS3. Sony reigned supreme with around 80% of the marketshare with the PS2. The Xbox and Gamecube sold...

But that is to take out all aspects of story telling, which is what put gaming in the eye of mass audiences and made it what it is today. You really can't argue that. Now if you want to say Nintendo changed how games are played, I'm with you. But you wanna know who changed the way games are...
