Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Aces up Nintendo Switch sleeves: It is coming.

So, the Switch?

Looking good!
Not gonna work.

So, I was thinking.

We are so close to the Switch´s launch and a lot of people say Nintendo should have gone all out on the 3rd party support thing.

But I think they have a bunch of aces in theirs sleeves, as follows:

- It appeals to parents as a kiddie friendly console, no COD or GTA in the advertisings and colorful fun looking games.

- It appeals to the decent handheld crowd.

- It appeals to the WiiU fanbase cause it is still Nintendo in HD, and there is the tablet touch thing when not docked.

- It appeals to the multi-function lovers, as it does combine a bunch of devices in it.

- It has a brand new piece of tech, the HD Rumble thing, which will probably be a standart next gen.

- It does leave room for low level VR, so, if this boat sails or not, Nintendo has something to offer.

- It has the main Nintendo IP coming.

- There is always the promisse of mid-level Nintendo IPs showing up, which is exciting specially to older gamers.

- It is a fun new little thing, and there is a crowd for such devices.

- It once again avoids going against the big dogs, blue ocean strategy once more.

- And finally, there is no way it will fail harder than the WiiU, so, the only way to go is up.



My grammar errors are justified by the fact that I am a brazilian living in Brazil. I am also very stupid.

How So? It doesn't have a browser, it doesn't have netflix or other streaming apps... it almost certainly can't play media files either. I don't think it can even take photo's like the 3ds.

I can't think of anything you CAN do on it other than play games.



Bet with Anfebious, Persona 5 will sell over 2m on PlayStation. Winner gets lifetime sig control.

Azzanation - "like most Sony consoles, they will keep selling the machines for 10 years and claim how good there consoles sell."

What? No Netflix???? Did not know that. I guess the multi thing left is handheld and console then.

But, bad move to take out Amazon Prime or Netflix, Hulu, Youtube out of it.

It'll get them eventually, it's just because the Switch is a little rushed. Browser, Streaming Apps and Online Subscription will probably all come in at around the same time.

Even so, kinda weird. 

amazon Prime is not good though, I watched a trial yesterday, not that much stuff in it. But I did watched Howard Stern Private Parts, a very interesting biopic.

More like a Nuclear Bomb up their sleeves. This would destroy all competition.
