How Sony could counter the Switch!

Forums - Gaming Discussion - How Sony could counter the Switch!

First of all, sony isn't exclusive king, not even close to, half of the games you listed are 3rd parties and if we made a list to compare the number of ips sony have vs nintendo, nintendo would pretty much triple it, not even talking about sales where nintendo first parties are way more successful.

Second, you and some people here are completely delusional and really need to study a bit about mobile chips before making posts like this, you know why? it's IMPOSSIBLE to have a handheld with ps4's power, i'm sorry to destroy your dreams but the switch isn't outdated as a handheld (it is for home console) and you can't have anything much better than it, even with an unlimited budget, there's not even technology enough to build a tablet with the switch's size and xbox one power yet, ps4 is even more crazy to ask, even the damn parker chip is wayyyyyy far from reaching 2 teraflops and it's nowhere close to ps4 memory bandwidth, and we are not even talking about battery, there's NO advance in battery technology and even if we HAD a mobile chip under 7nm as powerful as the ps4 it wouldn't run for more than a few minutes before running out of battery.

Graphics don't matter. Games matter. All they need to do is make games for Vita. They threw that bitch out to fend for itself like an unwanted child. 😐

Times have changed and people buy more digital now than ever. PSP GO is the only download only dedicated gaming system ever. It had problems with the proprietary memory card which was too expensive, but many people still liked it. 

A theoretical PS4P with high storage NAND inside and support for SD cards would tempt me. As would the aforementioned download only super mini SKU that I mentioned above. Tech is not there today though.

The Ouya didnt do great either. Neither did the Onlive thing.

Onlive was a streaming service. Ouya was poorly implemented. Nvidia Shield found its niche.

Im not sure Sony is interested in niche.



Sony doesn't need to do anything. The PS4 is still selling just as well, even though a new Nintendo console just launched. The truth is, Sony is the king of the home consoles, where Nintendo really can't compete. And Nintendo is the king of the HH, where Sony really can't compete. So, if the Switch continues to do well, I think we'll see each just do their own thing. Sony will continue to pump out consoles that are as much power as you can get in a $399 box, without too much of a loss. And Nintendo will continue making HH consoles that aren't as nearly as powerful, but has Nintendo's 1st party.

The better question is: What is MS going to do?

For $300? Are you serious? Yeah maybe in 2022. You'd be hard pressed to get something like this out there for less than $700 and that's assuming the tech actually exists in the first place



I have two points to add here:

  1. Sony doesn't need to counter the Switch according to our current knowledge.
  2. It's probably not possible to have a portable PS4 yet.


Why do they need to counter the Switch?.

 

Looks at hw sales

No seriously, why do they need to counter what was designed to be a hh system?.



                                       

The best way for Sony to "counter the Switch" is to ignore it and do their own thing... it seems to be working pretty well for them this gen.

I dont know. Why did they feel the need to counter the Wii with the Move...or the PC with the Pro?
