Nintendo is the only console maker in this planet that has the luxury of not relying heavily on third party for success. They are off to an amazing start and as a gamer myself I am loving the Switch, has given me many hours of joy and games keep on coming, Pokemon WILL be huge, make no mistake about it, Animal Crossings, Metroid Prime 4, Smash and possibly a new Mario Kart are all happening. If the Switch reaches 20-25 million units in the next year then you better believe third parties will jump in.



Think not of it as a game console but more as a handheld+ so it will outsell the 3DS and could become a success at 100 million life time.

Two different things. I can love 3rd-party-games and hate they don't come to Nintendo and still think they're unneeded for success of the device.

Already answered that. Based not only on answer here but different threads.

Then again, I do tend to interface with like-minded Nintendo fans who tend to play more Japanese third-party games (JRPGs and SRPGs, on my part) than the rest of the fanbase.

*glares at 3DS shelf which has more Atlus than Nintendo games*

Well, I didn't say all Nintendo fans don't want, like or speak bad of 3rd parties, but that on this forum there are a lot who behave just like that.

Now that I understand what you really mean, yes, I do agree that Nintendo fans here tend to be overly negative toward third-party support for the platform.

And I don`t really fault them for to reasons... first yes a lot of ports are poor and second I also preffer Sony 1st party and Nintendo than the 3rd parties...

 

But the only failure I see Switch doing is fail to do bad as some are expecting.

In half of this site, everything that isn't praise to Nintendo is taken as a troll. Give it a rest. People are entitled to their opinions and it IS interesting to talk about it rather than shut it down.

When someone makes a controversial thread, and then he doesn't post in it anymore, it does feel like a troll.



If it wasn't getting a mainline Pokémon game, then you might have had a point.



Maybe not fail, but it wont do numbers like crazy nintendo fans expect or predict. I think it wont sell over 50 millions. Sales will decline next year, the big switch hype is over



With regard the earlier comment about paid online having a negative effect on Switch sales when it's implemented I can't help wondering if Nintendo will introduce a price drop on the console at the same time therefore those who bought at full price would have benefited from free online and therefore will be more accepting of the price drop. It seems a logical way of introducing it.

It might be wishful thinking on my part though as I don't currently have a Switch and I'm not really interested in online multiplayer with regard Nintendo titles. I'm more into Mario and Zelda and found the mario kart online experience poor in the past compared to xbox and playstation titles. So I'm most interested in getting a Switch at a lower price, hopefully an improved revision with longer battery runtime.
