Microsoft Has Put Themselves Back In The Game!

in Gaming Discussion 1 day ago

MS putting in hard punches is better for the industry. It keeps the other players on their toes and it stirs the industry in a good way. My only hope is that this ultimately does not open a Pandora's box where quality diminishes due to many studios being bought out. But it can go in any direction, I just hope things stay balanced over time. Ms will probably only release these games on PS if...

Will the Switch hit 100M Sold by December 2021?

in Sales Discussion 2 days ago

I will say no. It will be closer to 95m. This year's sales are exceptional due to some exceptionally big releases like Animal Crossing and 3D all-stars and the pandemic. Next year Nintendo will also enjoy big releases again, but will share the spotlight with new consoles coming out and taking some attention away from the Switch. ...

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

Soundwave said: 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...

Is Mario 3D World on Switch worth it?

in Nintendo Discussion 4 days ago

If you never played it, and you like a good platformer, then it's really great. Treat yourself and try to see it as a different Mario game because it is. It's based off Mario 3D Land more than on Galaxy. ...

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

in Gaming Discussion 4 days ago

The success of Nintendo consoles is based on its IPs and the quality and usability of its hardware (when they do it right).The cloud simply can never compete with Nintendo on this. Put bluntly, if the PlayStation brand, after having stolen all major 3rd party support, was still being challenged by Pokemon, Mario (Bros, Kart, Smash, Party, Tennis, etc.), Zelda and Animal Crossing, then really they...
