I'm not saying that gamers only want new games when they buy their systems. I'm saying that's the reason. But there are others, of course.
"You are again wrong, Switch can handle every current gen port, but question is how much those games would need to be cut back and if devs want to make and invest in that kind of game. "
Off course ports do well on Switch. What new 3rd party games are they getting for Switch? Annoucements being made are, by a large margin, Indies and ports/remasters.
Bethesda can do that because their engine is able to do that. Just like games made on UE4.
Nintendo knew the risks. Like they knew the risks when developing the Wii.
I can't say with certainty that AC is that big in Europe and the US, as weekly sales tend to not completely back up that statement.
I dont see any problem with Switch lineup and releases even if there are plenty of ports/remasters, sales and popularity of Switch show there is no problem.
I came from point that CoD games from PS3/360 were ported to Wii, and when we talking about difference between Wii and 360/PS3, we talking about much bigger difrence in any case (so power, tech, architecture, controls...) than comparing to Switch and XB1/PS4. That was my point, like I wrote, question is how much those games would need to be cut back and if devs want to make and invest in that kind of game. Some devs are viling to that some are not, for instance Bethesda is willing to invest in those sort of games on Switch.
Switch dont have plenty of new AAA 3rd party games, but has new AA and smaller games, also has games like Fifa and NBA. Hype cant day fast because people are not hyped about new AAA muliplatform games on Switch in first place, and thats not whats making Switch popular.
But Doom is quite demanding game, it runs at 830p most of time on XB1, if that game is not demanding it would run any locked 1080p on XB1. Like I wrote, every game could be ported on Switch, only question how much would need be cut back.
Nintendo always take chances, its risking most of 3 companies. Switch is succes, period, only question is how big succes will be at end. Nintendo will probably keep with Switch and unifed platform and with Switch, there is no chanche that after Switch they will again start releasing two totaly different platforms.
Games like Pokemon and AC now, always perform best in Japan if we look size of markets, but those games are doing great on West also, and AC is has increased popularity after 3ds version of game and Tomodachi Life that was very popular in Europe.Last edited by Miyamotoo - on 15 September 2018
