    Hypothetical: Nintendo 10 Year Plan 2017-2027

    in Nintendo Discussion on 10 July 2019

    ...So, Nintendo Switch Lite is in FACT launching late 2019 for $199; and they called it a new addition to the Family. Maybe a Nintendo Switch with a larger screen in 2020 could happen afterall.:P ...

    2020: The peek of the Switch?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 13 June 2019

    RolStoppable said: I'll just ignore the original post because of its questionable logic and instead focus on the question the thread is asking.2020 can be expected to be better than 2019 because of the effects of a console revision and a price reduction lasting through the whole year, but that doesn't mean 2020 will be the peak year. Aside from people commonly forgetting that Switch's stake...

    Xbox Head Phil Spencer Said "The Business isn't About Selling How Many Consoles "

    in Gaming Discussion on 13 June 2019

    Well hardware sales effect active user base, active user base effects both software sales and subscriptions, so... It is a pretty major factor... Say for example that, PS5 and Switch both sell 100m+ consoles, and then the XB4 only sells say 12m consoles. That would have a huge effect on total software sales and subscriptions going forward, and it would also effect how many games come to...

    When did you first notice that grafix had diminishing returns?

    in Gaming Discussion on 02 May 2019

    There were a lot of changes from gen 3 to gen 4 to gen 5 to gen 6 in graphics, controllers, audio, game design, genres, etc., etc. and it was all great to experience as it unfolded. As far as graphics go, I specifically remember noticing back in 2002, playing a Xbox and thinking "what is the point of the graphics being shiny-er or sharper?". At the time, I knew Xbox had graphical...

    What makes a RPG's Class/Job System interesting to you?

    in Gaming Discussion on 02 May 2019

    I was reminiscing about many of the great RPGs of yore' and all the interesting approaches that developers have had in how to make different character classes interesting to play. From stat growth/progression, to perks/skills/passives/abilities/etc., to class specific equipment, to backstory, to class specific speaking styles, to even the specific visual styles/movements/animations of each...

    Capcom just released a game on Nintendo Switch on a 16 GB Game Cart for $30 MSRP

    in Nintendo Discussion on 24 April 2019

    ...and Dragon's Dogma does not require a download to play the physical game. This certainly sets a precedence going forward, now that Capcom themselves really really really do not have an excuse to not ship a full game on the dang physical cart anymore (especially if the game costs more than $30 MSRP and is smaller than 16 GB), because based on their own actions it is no longer a cost...

    What year do you think Switch's successor will release?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 26 February 2019

    Nintendo did mention Nintendo Switch having a longer than usual lifecycle. A usual lifecycle for them would be launching a sucessor in 2023. So, by that reasoning it would be 2024 or later. They also seem to indicate that R&D for a successor is also going to take longer than usual, so I voted 2025. There will be a ton of Nintendo Switch revisions along the way I am sure, but a full...

    Will the Switch ever get a Direct competitor?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 18 February 2019

    I don't imagine PS5 or XB4 will be a hybrid console due to their current brand trajectories. And a second line product would be weakly supported and not provide much competition anyway. Also, why do people bring up game streaming, remote play, wireless display connect, dockable phones, etc.? All that stuff has been around for years and it hasn't amounted to much of anything. People...

    Was the SNES era the peak of Nintendo software development?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 30 January 2019

    As far as first party output, I really enjoyed the GameCube stuff they made, they had a nice balance of fun sequels (Smash Bros, Mario Kart, Mario, Paper Mario, Mario Party, Mario Tennis, etc.) and fresh new gameplay stuff (Luigi's Mansion, Pikmin, Chibi-Robo, Animal Crossing, Starfox Adventures, Kirby Air Ride, Donkey Konga, etc.) SNES did have great games, but overall I just enjoyed GameCube...

    Update on Metroid Prime 4: Development restart. Retro Studios + Tanabe now working on it

    in Nintendo Discussion on 25 January 2019

    Huh... this news is quite, uh, out of the blue... I will say, I very much appreciate Nintendo's commitment to quality of a games that they publish. Seeing what Sony was willing to pull with pushing for ultra low quality Resistance and Call of Duty on Vita and even marketing and bundling COD to sucker some wallets before everyone got burned, it is night and day in comparison with how...

    Game Freak needs to ditch 3ds era assets, texture works and etc.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 20 January 2019

    I will take GameCube graphics till the end of days on Nintendo Switch in exchange for getting more big games every year and more new IPs. Maybe AI speeds up HD texture/animation creation one day, but in no way would I want slower game releases just for some marginal eye candy that my brain normalizes in 30 seconds....

    Regarding Nintendo Handhelds, was the Switch concept inevitable?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 07 January 2019

    It is possible that they were going to have Nintendo NX be two separate purchases of handheld hardware and home hardware with a super streamlined SDK to port between the two systems (having possibly the same architecture and OS just with different performance profiles). I think that plan (if it ever existed) went out the window fairly quickly when the Wii U mega-bombed (going from 101 million...

    Nintendo DS vs. Game Boy Advance: which do you prefer?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 31 December 2018

    It is a mixed bag for me. I like the mountains of hidden gems on DS as far as creative game worlds, music, tone, art, etc. but I grew to loathe dual-screen gaming and touch-screen gaming by the end of 2007. GBA had fewer gems, and I can only stand backlight screen/rechargeable GBA's nowadays a Modded OG GBA is more ergonomic, but I just owned a Backlit GBA SP. But, I MUCH preferred the...

    Anyone else feel resolution is overrated?

    in Gaming Discussion on 02 December 2018

    Resolution has been pretty irrelevant in my experience. Honestly, I would take a Nintendo Switch with a 480P (or even 240P) screen if it meant a bunch more mid-budget games getting made (shorter development time, lower budgets needed for modeling/textures/etc.) and taking more risks with more novel/niche ideas. Indies are great on the Switch, but so so many of those fall quite short of the...

    When do you expect first "PRICE CUT" for Switch?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 29 November 2018

    Probably a smaller sized Nintendo Switch to launch for $199 in 2019 before next year's Pokemon (or Before Animal Crossing possibly). When that launches, they could drop the 2DS to $49.99, the N2DS XL to $99.99, and then just keep the OG Nintendo Switch at $299.99, but bundle a game with it. Will be a nice boost to 2019 YoY Hardware Sales for sure (beyond what 2019's game lineup will already...

    Wanna predict how much the Switch will sell?

    Finale said: interesting to read in retrospect. Haha yeah, this thread was made right after Nintendo Switch's hardware launch price/game lineup reveal.There was a lot of doubts in the air, I thought it would have a slow start and ramp up in year 2 once the library built up and then accelerated a ton with Pokemon.How was I supposed to know it would sell more in the first 12 months...
