They have now only the 1, not 2 active separate gaming platforms ( last year it was hidden thanks to Minis,but thats all ),  the top scoring exclusives on Meta above 90 for Switch so far, despite all the party and big words here, it is only  Super Mario Odyssey that is a brand new game, the rest is necrobumpin Wii U's games. I remember well Remasterstation4 here before, and yep, only TloUR in the top scoring exclusives, so far.

I know you've been moderated for trolling but still, I want to answer that particular (false) statement. If we only count Super Mario Odyssey as the only top scoring game, a game released on the first year of the Switch, it's still more than PS4 (which has any 97/100 metacritic exclusive game despite being on its 6th year).

But you have to put BOTW here, despite being released simultaneously on the Wii U. And why not count Super Smash Bros Ultimate ? It got 92/100.

The moderator send me a PM, from I what read, not native speaker, but I understand there is no problem with my statements per se, it is with the way Im expressing it.

(This is.....a bit much. Not that I find your overall view to be a problem, rather, the disruptive way in which you presented it. Try not to bait Nintendo fans in this fashion, as it will only lead to more problems.)

Well, saying "the only new game is Super Mario Odyssey" is kind of trolling, and definitely baiting Nintendo fans.

But the others had significantly better deals so deals is not a valid argument.

The best deals for PS4 were in November, Pro+Spider, the only one other good deals I remember is PS VR ( without PS4 ) with 2 games. The deals in December were abysmal compared to that.

Oh, because we talking the new ideas, yes, the PS VR is totally a new idea here, new way to consume games. Meh games like Thumper are glourios in VR, the PSVR got it ground for once, great achievemnt.

What stands for our discussion, the problem I see here is that over 50% of Switch's sales last year were done in Holidays, and Holidays=deals by default. For comparison, PS4 got 5.2 or 4, what is closer to 25%. Lazy to count.

Not to even bring the thread that N consoles generally have its peak faster than PS, thats another big discussion.

Edit - please do not bring Xbox One in any kind of sales discussion, the MS cut it willingy long time ago.

When did I say anything about new ideas? That's something you just randomly made up.

Holidays=deals makes no sense at all.

Zelda BoTW was released on Wii U, Smash... OK, maybe let say its a brand new game, but there is a objections to it, and an argument even between  N fans.

Still, PS4 has 3 brand new games in above90 exclusives, GoW,U4,BloodBorne, Switch has 1 or 2.

If we count remasters/ports, the PS4 is winning 6 to 5 so far.

This is my first and last response to the Nintendo exclusives argument.

Comparing libraries of a console over 5 years old to one under 2 years old.......makes sense.

Yep, just use an occasion to mention it, nothing to u : :)

The Holidays definitely is the part of the year where there is the most and best deals for any consoles. I live in Eastern Europe, to buy one game is like to buy 6 games for US citizen, I am really good  in this topic trust me.

Zelda was indeed released also on the Wii U on the same day, but that's not the point, it's the Switch version which won GOTY and scored 97 on metacritic. And there is no discussion about Smash being a brand new game. 

Switch have 2 97 Metacritic games, and 3 over 90 in less than 2 years. And yeah, overall, it's 5 vs 6, but one is out for more than 5 years, the other one less than 2 years. That's says a lot.

Nintendo games, and especially the high metascore of them, is one the most used N points in discussions about Switch.

Of course, if we count exclusives lets say 85 and above, the picture is totally, totally, absolutely different.

Hey, I got my warning already....



It's a one-way race to see who can make excuses the fastest
