Have 3rd Party Devs treated the Switch as a Console or a Handheld

in Gaming Discussion 1 day ago

AngryLittleAlchemist said: Who cares. Whether they have or not tells me nothing about the quality of support. You can have good third party support on a handheld (I.E. Square Enix and Atlus's support of the DS for example), or bad third party support on a console (I.E. the Wii U). In addition, the publishers being mentioned in the OP mostly focus on the home console games anyways. And...

Have 3rd Party Devs treated the Switch as a Console or a Handheld

in Gaming Discussion 1 day ago

While it's an angle of interest to look at what third parties have been doing, it's not the be all, end all in determining whether Switch is a home console that is also portable or a handheld that connects to the TV. Gamers are a lot more valuable than third parties, so it's about what they consider Switch to be. That's not measured in internet anecdotes, but sales data. As of March 31st 2020,...

Is there a possibility that the Nintendo Switch will be the best-selling console?

in Sales Discussion 1 day ago

Yes. As usual, people need to remember that Switch is a hybrid and therefore dips into both of the previously separated home console and handheld markets. Switch is still far away from hitting saturation in the home market (only ~50m hybrids sold so far) and on the handheld side it's in its infancy (less than a year of availability at €200). The SKU setup of Switch makes it rather easy to sell...

VGChartz Gap Charts June 2020 Discussion Thread

in Sales Discussion 1 day ago

curl-6 said: Now this is an interesting one; a Nintendo system challenging a Playstation home console in Sonyland. Close race so far, will be interesting to see which one wins in the end.  It's similar to Switch vs. 3DS where the 3DS was aided by early price cuts and revisions to keep it close. On the graph the PS3 already got its €200 and €100 price cuts, so...

Ghost of Tsushima sold through 2.4m in its first three days. Lifetime sales expectations (PS4 only)?

in Sales Discussion 1 day ago

Sony's samurai adventure debuted with 2.4m units sold through in its first three days. https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2020-07-24-ghost-of-tsushima-is-sonys-fastest-selling-new-playstation-4-ip What are your lifetime sales expectations for the PS4 version alone? While it's not a given that the game will be re-released on the PS5, I decided to make the poll unambiguous, so that really...

Do you think Nintendo killed off the Wii too early

in Nintendo Discussion 2 days ago

Yes, it was. The lack of first party software in 2011 and 2012, let alone support beyond the launch of its successor, was the result of decisions that were made in 2009 already. When Ubisoft can still sell a new Wii game in 2019, then you can be sure that Nintendo software would have sold gangbusters in the early 2010s. But Nintendo flipped a switch and turned their back on the gamers that...

Poll - Is Switch a 9th gen console?

in Gaming Discussion 4 days ago

Mandalore76 said: Wman1996 said: Switch is ninth generation. If it were a home console only, it would be the second eighth generation console for Nintendo. Basically like the Atari 2600 and Atari 5200 in the second generation and the Sega SG-1000 and Sega Master System in the third generation. Switch as a hybrid puts it in a different generation from the Wii U, and the fact that it...

Does the industry consider the mid-gen upgrades (PS4 Pro and X1X) successful?

in Gaming Discussion 5 days ago

Firstly, we have the console manufacturers. Their consoles are first and foremost about playing PC games on console, so an imminent danger is that gamers interested in those games move to the PC about halfway through a generation, because the specs of consoles are locked whereas PC hardware is modular and can be upgraded whenever a gamer sees fit. Sony said as much...
