tbh if all gamers wanted the best fidelity of their games we wouldn't have consoles at all, everyone would be playing on a high end PC on a 1ms display monitor, that isn't the reality of the matter though, from steam surveys we get information that the majority of even pc gamers are on mid range hardware and aren't going to shell out extra cash for extra frames or shadow detail, the type of gamer who is put off by a game not being 144hz isn't going to be looking at the Switch anyway simply because on a Venn diagram their interests and what the switch offers do not overlap outside of threads on the internet to complain that the Switch isn't capable of doing 4k/120fps gaming.
People can cry at companies for not supporting sli or not providing games on a cartridge they're going to have to fumble about with on a plane trying to change it over instead of just clicking another title on a list.... but still... sales are all that really matters to these companies and if a game sells fine as a digital only version running 720p/30 on the Switch then the company isn't going to lose a whole pile of sleep thinking about captain 4k physical only media on the internet who didn't buy their game, because it would cost too much to accommodate for that person.
Exactly. I will add that people might be more willing to take the extra step of buying a PS4/XBONE than they would shelling out for a high end or top of the line PC.
I've always built my PCs and I still hesitate. The machine I built 6 years ago (small upgrades since then) is what i'm using now and still works(ish) with what I want to play, but is definitely showing its age. I seriously hesitate to drop the 2k to build a PC I know will probably last 6 years just like this one, but I won't hesitate to drop $499-$599 for a PS5/XBTWO. Keeping in mind that 4k is still a couple years away for me at the least.
