Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Alienware, promoting their Switch clone, tweets, "Switch is cool but... the limited number of games on it isn't"

So... are they honestly suggesting their portable hybrid PC is going to cost less than the Switch? With the Alienware brand no less?

Popcorn ready for when they drop the price.

I think the quote "The Nintendo Switch is cool, but the price and limited number of games on it isn’t." is referring to the price of games being cheaper on PC than Switch, but yeah it's a confusing way to word it.



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

Prices on Indies are mostly the same as Steam. Actual Nintendo IPs do cost money, but those games would cost money no matter what platform they were on. There are a few outrageous prices on the eShop, but I think those are a minority, like 10-20% of the eShop.

They must be talking about prices of old games or during sales, because otherwise it doesn't make sense. PC games are generally no cheaper than consoles until they get a few months old. Sales are just better on PC with multiple stores available. Steam, Fanatical, GMG, GOG, Epic, Humble... etc. When it comes to sales eShop is the worst of the consoles.

In a humble bundle last year I got Crash, Spyro and CoD WWII for $12, you just don't get value like that on consoles. Hell Spyro was only a couple of months old on PC at that point.

Deals much better on PC, New is pretty much same as Switch.
