    Could Next-Gen Switch Use Nvidia DLSS AI Upscaling?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 10 February 2020

    It seems like AMD's RIS (image sharpening) is better than DLSS and has virtually no performance hit, maybe Nvidia will come up with their own answer to that. But in theory absolutely. If you can render an image at only 60-70% of its pixels but achieve basically the same image quality ... such a tech is perfect for a Switch 2. ...

    Birds of Prey - 82% RT, and good audience reception

    in Movies Discussion on 09 February 2020

    Not sure where "Ocean's 8 flopped" comes from. $300 million box office versus a $70 million budget is a very healthy box office multiplier (over 4x its budget). If you could get a 4x multiplier on just about any script you came up with, every studio in Hollywood would greenlight your script and gladly. ...

    Should Nintendo make all future consoles hybrids?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 04 February 2020

    Neither Sony or Nintendo will be making two distinct platforms ever again I don't think (as in console + separate handheld). It's too cost and resource intensive to support two platforms anymore. Handhelds used to have far more primitive technology but today handhelds can run even modern games like The Witcher 3 and soon will have chips that can easily run PS4/XB1 tier content, the iPad Pro...

    EA: "There isn't much room for other titles than 1st party on Switch"

    in Nintendo Discussion on 01 February 2020

    If Nintendo had used the Mariko chip that is in current Switch units they could have had a 393 GFLOP undocked (@ 3-4 hours) and 600 GFLOP docked performance, which probably would have put a lot more XB1/PS4 games in play for the Switch. They probably could have doubled the memory bandwidth to 50GB/sec too which makes a large difference. That's a performance envelope where porting those types of...

    When will the switch outsell the ps4?

    in Sales Discussion on 31 January 2020

    PS4 is at 106 million now, it's not going to just magically stop at 110 million. Really Sony could probably hit 140 mill if they really want to, they haven't even cut to $199.99 let alone $149.99 ... if they wanted that number they could get it. It's a question of what they want to do. Selling 106 million mostly at $299-$399 is crazy. Even the PS2 needed significant price cuts and DS was $130 or...

    EA: "There isn't much room for other titles than 1st party on Switch"

    in Nintendo Discussion on 31 January 2020

    Sony and MS dominate the 3rd party market too much, even a lot of Switch owners own a PS4 but would rather play say NBA2K on PS4.It's just too ingrained in people. 50 million userbase doesn't mean a lot if it requires more effort/resources to port and your sales return is going to be lower. Nintendo unforuntately ceded the NES/SNES' legacy of being the place for all the top games (1st, 2nd, and...
