The switch is the console people love to love, i know i do. For me i think one reason for this, and perhaps maybe overlooked is the e-shop. The e-shop has never been so vibrant with a wide array of quality games, indies are thriving. Nintendo has done a fine job gathering this amazing collection of indie games and as a result indies are finding unprecedented sales success. This sales success encourages more companies to release games for the switch and helps build hype for the system. every week the switch gets free positive publicity when x indie says the sold x amount of games on switch.
So my argument against VC is that the average gamer only has limited funds to spend on games, when choosing to buy an e-shop game do the choose unknown game about golf or one of the greatest games of all time? Probably they will opt for the guarantee of nostalgia and quality. Suddenly this could lead to indies no longer finding success on switch, becomes less appealing to release games on the system. With this the good publicity storys dry up and the hype for the system start to fade. I genuinely feel VC will have a negative impact on switch, what do you think?Last edited by bluetoad - on 18 January 2018
