    What will sell more, Pokemon Sword/Shield or Zelda Breath of the Wild?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 08 May 2020

    Breath of the Wild. I agree with the OP's reasoning. Pokemon will definitely (and probably has already) overtake BotW, but BotW will no doubt take it back in the end. And until you pointed it out, I didn't realize how close the sales numbers were for the two in Q1. Even with Pokemon's DLC and lack of a third version, BotW will outsell it within ~2-3 years and stay on top forever. Also, let's...

    Report: Nintendo has told suppliers to expect an increase of at least 10% in Switch console production for 2020.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 20 April 2020

    javi741 said: A 10% increase in Switch production is a very low-balling prediction, Minimum Nintendo needs to increase Switch production by 20% to keep up with demand. Even before all this quarantine stuff and the release of Animal Crossing Switch sales were up 23% from 2019. I don't disagree, but I think the question there is: can they? I'm not so sure considering the lost output...

    How The Switch 2 Could Do 4K@120fps

    Fragenstein said: Even if its technically possible, why would you want that? I recently bought a Gsync monitor and I can barely tell the difference between 60 and 120fps, while I had to use the lowest graphics settings to hit that 120fps. Everyone's different, but personally I see a huge difference between the two. Of course it also depends on the game. It would be great to see it...

    Mar1217 said: Let's get a consistent 60 fps in most games before jumping to a whole other shark. Indeed not all games would even aim for 120fps in this scenario (but it is a must for Mario Kart, Splatoon, and, above all, Smash!), but nonetheless DLSS would increase framerates drastically for any given resolution and raising the cap to 120fps would make it easier to establish 60fps as...

    How The Switch 2 Could Do 4K@120fps

    in Nintendo Discussion on 12 April 2020

    Let's assume that the successor to the Switch takes on the same form as its predecessor; that is, it's a handheld/console hybrid, with more or less the same power consumption, and that it will come out in 2023 or 2024. We'll call this the Switch 2. Now what if I told you that I think it is perfectly reasonable that this device can be capable of running even fairly demanding games at 4K 120fps?...

Also I would rather them (and everyone, for that matter) do what is good for all as opposed to what is good for me. Not sure I follow, a third version would still be a version...

I'm thrilled that they're finally abandoning the third version in favor of DLC (and I especially appreciate that they were quite direct about it). But, why?

    Be Honest With Me: How Bad is Sword & Shield?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 09 January 2020

    So I've played nearly every main series Pokemon game. But I haven't picked up Sword or Shield. I'm among those who were pissed off about Dexit, and I got the impression that S&S were rushed, low-quality games with little effort put into them (OoT tree comes to mind here). Plus, I felt that buying the game would just be rewarding the anti-consumer behavior Game Freak is known for. Well it...

    What do you want in a Switch 2?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 07 January 2020

    I'm assuming the Switch 2 comes out in 2024, and that it is mostly the same idea as the Switch. The big thing I'm hoping for is an embrace of high refresh rates. I think that this will be one of the biggest trends for the next 2-3 generations. So I'm hoping that the Switch 2 is capable of 4K 120Hz when docked (I know that very few games will actually run at 4K 120fps, so I'm just saying that I...
