Switch can be played anywhere, can your vita/table does the remote play anywhere? Also, you only need to buy a Switch to play game but you need to buy both ps4 and vita/table to do that. What is good about spending too much like that just for playing on the go?

An Xperia + ps4 can be bought for 400€ the price of a ps4 Pro. Really not much. And with mobile data on your phone you can play it anywhere. 

Even on the plane? Many planes don't allow you to use table/smartphone with wifi/3G.

I'll add the fact that mobile data means that you're paying to play on the go as well, so in order to use the set up he's bringing up you need to buy 2 separate devices one of which that has you paying an ongoing contract.

Thank you for adding information. So $400 + pay for playing on the go compare to $300 only on Switch with no need of wifi/3G, welp.

It's starting to look pretty nice on the rpg front. And I think it's off to a better start than the 3DS, so that's promising.
I hope they bring Persona 5 to Switch as well. That game deserves to be played by more people. And I'm sure it would sell really well. Especially if it has extra content, like Persona 4: Golden.

I'm curious what your thought process was here?
Should Jrpgfan not have listed the PS4 titles that are also on Switch? I'm asking because you didn't mention that most of the Switch games on the list he quoted are also on PS4.
If he had crossed them out, it would have looked like this:

Xenoblade Chronicles 2
Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna
Octopath Traveler
Pokemon Let's Go
Pokemon Gen 8
Fire Emblem Three Houses
Grandia Remastered
Shin Megami Tensei 5

If Jrpgfan had done that, or pointed out that "Most of those Switch games are also on PS4", then I would understand your comment.
But the way you replied, it looks like you're either not aware that most of the games on the Switch list were also on PS4, or that you only think the multi-platform aspect should be mentioned for one side of the list, and not the other. Or were you thinking something else?

Valkyria Chronicles: Remastered
Digimon Survive

I was going to say Persona Q2 as well, but then I remembered it's for 3DS.

You’re overthinking it.

He made a list of PS4 games, using it to demonstrate the Switch has a long way to go to match the library on PS4. I informed him that many games on the PS4 list are or will soon be on the Switch list, demonstrating the gap is not as wide as the long list would suggest.

I understand why you pointed out that many of the games are also on Switch. But not why you didn't mention that most of the games on the Switch list were also on PS4.
If your response was because you thought he portrayed the gap as more wide than it really was, why did you make a comment that demonstrated a gap that is more narrow than your comment would suggest? Because that would just prompt someone to inform you of the same thing.

The difference is he kept things consistent on both sides, while you only excluded multiplatform titles from PS4's side of the list.

Also, I would challenge your idea that a multiplatform inclusive list makes the gap look more wide than if the lists were only comprised of exclusives.
I'm pretty sure it's the other way around.

I have to admit: I'm surprised my post has proven so provocative.

I was reacting only to JRPGfan's post, not the thread in general. He made a list of PS4 games, to show (I'm assuming) how far behind Switch is relative to PS4. I informed him that many of the games on his list are currently on Switch or planned for Switch, because it seemed as if he didn't realize that.

That's really all there is to it.

That's if you can even get a signal, a lot of places where I live have terrible connections, like it can be a pain ass to watch youtube a lot of the time due to getting low bars because I am in some spotty place. Hell back when I actually used my Vita, remote play never worked for me outside of my house when I tried to play outside of my house and 2 years ago during a road trip I tried to play Witcher 3 on Vita connect to phone's mobile and it just kick me off instantly. Now I don't know where you live, but streaming game's especially in the US will never be suitable substitute to playing something locally for a long time due some of the sheer hops you have to go through just get it to work.

Fair point.

You're still avoiding answering my question though.
If you find yourself in a situation where you have to avoid answering a simple question multiple times, then you probably shouldn't be surprised if your post gets attention.

I won't ask for a third time, because I'm sure you have no intention of answering at this point. Which ironically tells me what I wanted to know.
I will say though that if you call someone out for unfairly portraying the a gap between two parties in favor of one, the answer is not to do the same for the other.

He didn't avoid your question at all. He has answered you twice already, explaining his thought process, and the fact that he aimed his comment entirely to JRPGfan, not the whole thread:

This comes in regards to this:

JRPGfan said:

Yes its getting a few JRPG/S-rpgs but its still got along way to go compaired to the PS4:

 

You then didn't realize he was merely adressing JRPGfan. He's not adressing the actual OP post, which doesn't involve PS4 at all, nor compares lists to it.

This is answered with JRPGfan's own post:

JRPGfan said:

He drew the comparison list, and thus Veknoid merely informed him some of the game he posted (I remark: still got along way to go compaired to the PS4) are actually on/coming to Switch.

He answered you a second time:

Veknoid_Outcast said:

Only JRPGfan's post was the one drawing a comparison list, not the OP's, therefore he doesn't have to nor need to adress the OP itself nor talk about the gap with OP's list because he was never adressing that in the first place.

 

Hiku said:

He doesn't know what you want answered at this point, because Vek has already answered you twice.



Like I said, it's becoming an RPG haven, though I'm really loosing my gripe on JRPG's and such, DQXI and OT isn't doing it for me atm.
