    Your Xbox Series SX & PS5 lifetime sales predictions

    in Sales Discussion 1 day ago

    I don't think Microsoft is done buying big studios, they will have another 1-2 big guns in their roster before this next gen is over and they will have a commanding lead in the streaming/service side if I had to guess right now (ie: the fabled Netflix of gaming) which is more important than physical hardware install base. But even on that side I think MS will eat into Sony's marketshare,...

Either way, this being released now is so obviously...

    Will Cloud Gaming portably affect the Switch's appeal and success?

    in Gaming Discussion 3 days ago

    drinkandswim said: Lol not sure how to delete that. But Nintendo has a partnership with Nvidia. Switch is already Geforce ready. Nvidia charges $4.99 per month for Geforce Now and Nvidia makes money on every Switch sale since it runs on their SoC. Its a complete win for both companies to have Geforce Now. Ill be shocked if the Switch or Switch pro doesnt have it at some...

    Chazore said: No, I don't see it effecting Switch's success. The Switch is a portable unit, primarily geared towards gaming, while mobile phones attached to the cloud are primarily designed around making calls, videos, texts and some general purpose apps, and then a small bit of gaming.The Switch has already proven that there's still a userbase to cater towards, and so far mobile gaming...

    drinkandswim said: I can see the Switch Pro having Geforce Now Capabilities. So therefore no I dont think its going to impact Switch. I think Switch is going to adopt it. Don't think that really works for Nintendo because Nvidia would have to be willing to share a portion of the profit, otherwise you're just allowing games on your platform and not getting a licensing fee from...

    The 3DS only had a high price for like 3 months, it was $169.99 after that had and soon had several games that should have been system sellers -- Nintendogs, Mario Kart 7, and Super Mario 3D Land.Even if you don't like 3D, it takes literally 2 seconds to turn it off forever, as easy as adjusting the volume. Smartphone gaming boomed explosively in 2010-2011-2012, the first blockbuster smartphone...

    hinch said: I don't know how it is in the US and the rest of the world but the 5G coverage is still crap in most parts in the UK. You definitely need stable connection to be able to stream well. Also the type of people who play those games are probably not in the same market as those who play Nintendo consoles. It's starting to roll out now en masse, but in 2-3 years it will be...

    Gaming Streaming - What does the future look like?

    in Gaming Discussion 4 days ago

    I think it looks like Microsoft vs. Amazon with Microsoft having a large advantage. Google made too many errors with their launch, I guess they could get back in the game but would have to make a large investment in a studio or two (or three). ...

    I think Nintendo is insulated for the immediate future, like talking the next 3 years, but after that I would be concerned. The big problem I think is 5G ... 5G is not some hypothetical thing that's far off in the future ... it's basically here now being rolled out worldwide, all the flagship phones for 2020 and 2021 are basically 5G, it is the standard going forward. 5G is fast enough to...

They just don't have enough money to force Square-Enix to do it outright so they do it bit by bit. I also think they privately try and get designers like Nomura to be actively anti-non-Playstation platform too. They've been doing this stuff for...

    Has Monolith surpassed Retro Studio as new Nintendo elite studio?

    in Nintendo Discussion 6 days ago

    Well given that one studio actually releases games and the other can't finish a game to save their lives ... I'd say yes. If Retro wasn't 100% owned by Nintendo I think they may have been dumped about 2 years ago. ...
