We will wait, but judging based on popularity and sales on eShop Skyrim and Doom are selling quite well.
I never wrote everyone, again, fact is that there are people that are buying Switch for full handheld mode for some 3rd party games, and some other maybe will not buy Switch just beacuse those games, but they will again buy some of those 3rd party games beacuse full handheld mode.
But thats point, some can buy Switch for Zelda and handheld Skyrim. Full handheld mode for games is game changer for some people, I mean you have plenty of people that are using Switch just like handheld, actualy Nintendo survey showed that most people using Switch like handheld instead like home console. Take Two relased new game on Switch and we can expect more games.
But fact is that is happening and we will definitely have much more 3rd party announcements next year (we can bet if you want). Why would companies said "we are bringing our future games to this console" if they also want to bring some older ports!? It doesnt make sense, they will bring some new and some old games also.
Capcom actually announced two 3 new games, Ace Atorney, Mega Man 11 and Street Fighter Collection. SE is also relising Octopath Traveler thats new game. Namco said they are bringing 3 exclusive Switch games. Again, we bouth agree that ports are also support, and I already wrote to you that ports of older games can be done fastest and that for ports or newer games porting is longer, so that why we mostly have now annucments of ports older games while bigger annucments will come later (next year).
See what a success story brought so far? Besides Ubisoft, did any company actively and clearly declared to be giving more support to Switch? You have some problem with reading!? They are all success stories and basicly all companies that I mentioned very clearly said the are giving more and stronger support to Switch.
And Il say again, devs can work on PS5 and Switch version of game in same time if games and Switch are still selling good. You dont know how many exlusive games Switch will have so you cant say that "we aren't getting a lot of exclusive new games for Switch", espacily beacuse we already have Mario Rabbids, Fire Emblem Warriors, Octopath Traveler, Shin Megami Tensei V, No More Heroes and Bayonetta 3 announced in first 9 months of console, sp off course we will have much more exclusives getting announced. Bandai said they have 3 exlusives for Switch.
Indies are reaching lineup of every platform, more games is always better for any platform.
But point is that Wii U didnt has one single system seller or big game, we talking about night and day difrecens in that point. Point that there is no confirmation doesn't mean there will not single one 1st party game, and in any case we have 2 good exclusives for February for now.
There is difference when you have good game on failed console without future and good game on popular console with bright future.
My "issue" with Skyrim or Doom isn't if they are selling well or not. Given that they have no competition in their genres, i want to know if they doing more than just "well".
Doing fine, given the circumnstances, is not enough. If Switch is to become a real alternative to XB or PS, this type of software needs to exceed expectations, otherwise, both devs and gamers alike, won't bother with a console that ends up being more about Nintendo than 3rd parties.
"but they will again buy some of those 3rd party games beacuse full handheld mode."
That was never an issue with me.
Gamers bought GTC V in droves again on PS4 and XB1. It's not really a surprise if that happens on Switch aswell.
The survey that i remembre from Nintendo showed that people used the portable mode at home.
If that data is accurate, than Switch is failing to leave to it's potential: Switch was about indoor and outdoor gaming.
"Why would companies said "we are bringing our future games to this console" if they also want to bring some older ports!?"
I don't understand how a company saying they will bring more ports but also newer titles it's something weird to you. Didn't Capcom do that with Megaman 11 (new game) and old Megaman games (ports)?
That is what should be happening, given Switch's success.
Again, i'm not denying that more games will come.
What i'm talking about is what kind of support Switch will be having in the coming years. And with the little we have heard from developers is: more ports and smaller franchises.
"while bigger annucments will come later (next year)."
You talk as if this was a fact. Want to prove it? Do you have inside information to backup your claims or is it just speculation?
I said that we aren't getting new exclusives. And that is the truth.
There have been announcements of more support but all they say is ports and more ports or they don't clearly say what kind of support is (Ubisoft, for exemple).
"Mario Rabbids, Fire Emblem Warriors, Octopath Traveler, Shin Megami Tensei V, No More Heroes and Bayonetta 3"
Of these, only one was/is a success, three, are from not "successful" franchises and one, has yet to prove to be a success or not.
If you think the number of titles is all that needs for a platform to be successful, than you are mistaken.
Look at the top 10 lists and see what sells every month, every year. That's what Nintendo needs to get to really compete.
The quality of the titles is not what matters. What matters is that in the first 10 months, there's an equal number of 1st party titles for both Wii U and Switch.
Quality is secondary to this discussion.
Splatoon and Bayonetta were both released on a failed platform. One did less than a million, the other, more than 4,.5 million.
You do realise that Nintendo used the "The Game Awards", a show seen by millions, to announce Bayonetta 1, 2 and 3, and not a great 1st party title, right?
Look this way, Skyrim was 4. best selling Switch game in US in November (only Zelda, MK8 and Odyssey sold better) while Doom was 8. best selling, offocurse those are sales without digital sales. Thats quite good. Doing "good or well" is enough that Bethesda make profit and continue supporting platform. We will know what will Bethesda exatly say about sales of their Swtich games and Switch support, I am pretty sure it will be positive in both cases.
Than you can just imagine how many people would buy Switch if GTAV comes to Switch just to be able to play it in full handheld mode, there is no stronger 3rd party title that could Switch recive. And there are definitely some chances that GTA V will come to Switch.
Point where people are using portable mode dont change fact that more people are using handheld mode compared to docked mode, but most people are using Switch in both modes.
Capcom didn't said they will bring only ports, they said we will bring games that were not available on previous Nintendo platforms and they will suport Switch stronger, and like you wrote Mega Man 11 is new game. While SE said: "we won't rule out any IPs. Those include new ones, currently active ones, currently not-active ones".
Actually you did arguing if Switch will get more support, not what kind support will be. Yes there will be plenty of ports but there will be some new games also.
You dont have any confirmation for that, offocurse that Switch will have bigger announcements also next year, probably we will have few of them next month.
"I said that we aren't getting new exclusives. And that is the truth" - How that can be true when I mention all exclusives that are unanced in only 9 months of Switch, so of course they are not only exclusives that Switch will receive, ofcourse that Switch will much more exclusive than that. Point wasnt if those exclusives are/or will be successful.
Again, more games is better in any case, more divers linuep is what Switch need, and Switch is getting more diverse linuep with tons of Indies, Fifa, NBA, Rocket League, Skyrim, Doom, LA Noire, RE, Lego, Outlast, DQ11...and in future will be much more diverse with more announcements.
OF course that quality and big titles are very important, first because people are buying consoles because quality and big titles, and second beacuse devs need much more time for developing big and qualite games compared to smaller or less quality games, and Switch lineup kills Wii U 1st year lineup. Also talking about Wii U lineup, Wii U after launch had a couple of months without single one release, while Nintendo basically released one bigger or stronger game every month without any droughts.
Ofcourse, one is very specific kind of game while another is basically Mario Kart of online shooters. But in any case, Splatoon 2 will sell better than Splatoon 1 and B2 will probably sell better on Switch compared to Wii U.
I don't see how that has anything with what we are talking about, but yes I do realise that and it was good decision because both games are good games that will be out in near future and Bayonetta 2 is Nintendo paid exclusive, and that totally goes with line that they are focusing on games that are coming in near future, but also when unancing ports of two Bayonetta games is great opportunity to announce brand new Bayonetta game that will come exclusively to Switch.
