DESTINY 2(Coming of what is considered the 2nd biggest franchise this gen)

STAR WARS BATTLE FRONT 2(Millions guaranteed as it launches near the movie)



those three are likely going to sell well over 10 million units..... and will release on PS4/xbone/pc


no switch announcements...... does this bold well for its future? I think not....


Around the Network

Breath of The Wild, Splatoon 2, MK Deluxe and Mario Oddissey are not being released on ps4 or XBO

Does this bold well for their futures?

I mean those games couldn't run on Switch even if they tried TBH. The Switch imo will take 2nd place ultimately.

PSn - greencactaur
Nintendo Switch FC - SW - 5152 - 6393 - 5140 Please feel free to add me :)

I dont recall the PS3 or X360 failing because it lacked these IPs.

WiiU on the other hand...

3DS on the other hand...

I wouldn't expect these companies to spend tens of millions of dollars to port these games on a new system where that company's last system was a flop. Honestly, even if the Switch somehow does mega-huge numbers like the Wii, i wouldn't expect games like RDR2 to make it

However, it certainly isn't the downfall of the console, clear from the sales figures. Even though the Wii U had loads of AAA ports at launch, it fell off quickly. Granted, there are reasons such as them being late ports, but you can still see from the ones that did launch side-by-side (e.g. AC IV) still performed horribly, which shows that AAA games and the end-all be-all factor for the Switch.

I didnt realise the 3DS wasnt a handheld but an actual console that received console dominant IPs.


And you probably didn't realize that Switch is not a traditional console and the same reasons that made 3ds succesful can easily make Switch succesful too.

Another barren thread.

The Switch will bodely go where no one has gone before, its future is written in italic.

"Red Dead Redemption" is the only game that I might be interested.
