I guess Microsoft sees the Switch as a Handheld and not a home console than. To Microsoft, the Switch is not stealing any customers from them so they see this as easy money.

Microsoft is building up to a digital streaming service, kinda like google just announced.  They are trying to grow their audience before they pull the plug on the hardware side of things.  I’m sure they still view the switch as competition, but right now the two companies have two different visions for the future...

Even less reasons to get a XBOX.
Sonyntendo will probably always be the best.
That is, if Sega never returns xD

Well PC is not "Handheld" and still most xbox exclusives are coming to it

I think Microsoft want to have a "gaming service" available everywhere being exclusive to just the xbox doesn't make the money they want at the end of the day, and for a company making money is important

So" Xbox/Game Pass" is basically becoming an app like Youtube or Netflix download it on anything and play Microsoft Games :)

They could port older 1st party games like rare replay don't think they'll port Newer ones.? Just games that dont sell before gamepass like recore and 1St party low perfomance demanding games like Ori.

I don't think they'll ever pull the plug on the hardware side until it actually loses them money, and more money than would be justified by the strength it offers the brand. Keeping it around allows super brand loyal fans to keep buying those consoles. It's low risk profit and keeps those loyal fans close. If Nintendo did something like this, I'd keep buying their consoles, but I'd imagine they'd start to sell at sub-WiiU levels. The same thing will likely happen with Xbox, but the brand as a whole will actually be bigger and stronger.

My money is on ReCore, Super Lucky's Tale, and Ori and the Blind Forest. Lucky and Ori should be able to run on Switch easily since neither is that graphically demanding. ReCore would need some downgrading, but nowhere near as much as any of their AAA games would need. Rare Replay might be a possibility, but would be too much work I'm sure, porting 30 games to Switch. Some individual Rare ports might happen though.

I can't believe this is really happening! This E3 is gonna be amazing!

I'm trying not to get too overhyped here, but how could they not at least port Ori? And at least something from Rare will have to come over eventually.

Rare Replay. Bring Banjo Kazooie home!

^THIS!! Plus, with it being ported to Nintendo Switch, they could probably port the N64 versions, AND maybe Diddy Kong Racing! :D



Some days I just blow up.

I also see this all as a long term courting effort.  If the day ever comes where consoles are no more and everything is streaming they want Nintendo games on their service.
