That seems like a gross exaggeration. If I recall, the first year or so of the 8th Gen consoles was cluttered with far more ports than the Switch has been receiving. I also wouldnt particularly call XCX ancient. It came out in 2014 and a lot of people missed out on it due to not bothering to buy a Wii U.
But Im sure you will be glad to know that Monolith Soft has just begun a new project, so you dont have to worry about not having new games to play.
When it comes to ports, anything multiple years old is pretty much ancient. And I dunno about that, even if we disregard the tsunami of ancient indies, there's MK8D, Pokken, Tropical Freeze, Skyrim, Bayo 1 + 2, Diablo 3, Dark Souls, Hyrule Warriors, Captain Toad, NSMBUD, LA Noire, LEGO City, Monster Hunter Generations, Rayman Legends, Street Fighter II, RE Revelations 1 + 2...
Imagine if all the resources and manpower spent on that multitude of games had instead been invested in creating fresh new content.
Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
