Nintendo Switch Online Cloud Saves are Deleted after a Grace Period if Subscription is not Renewed

in Nintendo Discussion on 27 September 2018

Conina said: Zekkyou said: I assume you're able to download and then locally back up your saves even if you're no longer subscribed? Why do you assume that you can locally backup your saves? You can on the PS4, X1, and Steam (Valve don't even have a time limit which is nice), and I believe local WiiU files can be backed up, so i'd be pretty shocked to find out the...

How Sony became king of consoles again

VAMatt said: Azzanation said: That depends what you mean by win. If win you mean on sales figures than sure, in terms of profiting i wouldnt say Sony is king when it comes to profiting. Nintendo knows how to make money and i think Nintendo has a much better history when it comes to making money in the console market. PS3 might be the 4th best selling console however its up there...

Dragon Quest XI for Switch titled Dragon Quest XI S

in Nintendo Discussion on 24 September 2018

While I'll never actually touch it on the Switch (or PS4 more than likley, praise be native 4k support on PC), i'm looking forward to seeing the Switch version. SE have clearly had a lot of trouble with it, so it'll be interesting to see what it ends up looking like. I expect the biggest issue they're having is that they know the Switch version will be very popular (particularly in Japan), so...

Tales of Vesperia battle load time comparison. Switch vs PS4

finalrpgfantasy said: last92 said: Any information about the frame rate on switch and ps4? 60 fps would be nice in this game. The PS4 footage was 60 fps.   The switch was 30 fps, but it wasn't a direct feed.  The game will most likely be 60 fps.   If the docked version is 1080p, my bet would be on it being the same as the PS3/360 versions (30fps...

Spider-Man PS4 sold 3.3 million units in three days, becomes fastest-selling PS4 exclusive

Amnesia said: I don't want to do my Nintendo fanboy, but I just remind that Odysee had performed 60% of this sale in the same amount of time (2M in 3days), with an installed base of Switch 7 times inferior than the PS4 today. And Killzone: Shadow Fall sold 1 million copies on an install-base 27 times smaller. Past a certain point, the degree to which install base affects the sales of...

Playstation Classic Announced, releasing in December 3rd with 20 games pre-loaded and cost $99

in Sony Discussion on 19 September 2018

I wondered if i'd feel as apathetic about a PS1 mini announcement as I did with the NES and SNES and it turns out the answer is yes, I feel nothing :-D There's a big market for these retro systems though, and a lot of people are clearly excited. I do feel like they should be aiming for 30 games rather than 20 though. Creating these retro systems is probably an IP nightmare (the more games you...

Kingdom Hearts 3: Boxart/Trailer !!!! Sony TGS lineup & Persona Dancing

TranceformerFX said: For Square's sake, KH3 better sell like hot cakes. FF15 sold 6.5 million units so far, but the company goal was 10 million. Tomb Raider 2 didn't sell nearly as much as the 1st, and the recently released 3rd installment isn't expected to sell gobs of units either. Normally, 6.5 million units sold for a game would be super positive for most publishers, too bad Square...

It’s crossplay version 2 lol If...

So despite Switch still didnt had any any big year this year or any price cut still, until August is selling on pair of what PS4 was selling in 2014. and 2015., very impressive for Switch and Switch would easily beat PS4 in those years with sales in November and December. Also, Switch beating 3DS in every single market with obvious difference is also very...

Metacritic adds "Must-Play Game" badge to 90+ games

in Gaming Discussion on 12 September 2018

I'm personally not fond of it. With how significantly general variance can influence the metascore of a game because of small sample sizes (not to mention secondary factors that have little to do with quality, e.g. brand fondness likley inflates the scores of stuff like Uncharted, Zelda, GTA, etc, to some degree), there's very little statically significant difference between an 89 or 90. Even...
