I already picked up the best of 2017 on Switch. Zelda and season pass, Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart Deluxe even if i already own it on WiiU, Splatoon 2, Xenoblade 2 and Season pass, Mario rabbids, Fire emblem warriors. And i buy games on PS4 Pro and Xbox One S. On PS4 i have to chose. Dragon Quest or Spider-Man? Just an example, the dilemma should be expanded to many more titles. On Switch what should i play?
I'd like to use all of my consoles, especially the new ones. I don't want to see another WiiU with 2 inches of dust, so that's why if i have to chose an indie probably i'll play it on Switch, otherwise I should keep the console off for a huge amount of time and i hate this thing. You know, if i spent 400 euro of console, i'd like to use it. If it weren't for Hollow Knight (i bought it in August) it would have been turned off since February, and in February i got Bayonetta 1-2 that i already got on WiiU so... No big games it's the answer at the attach rate question. And i have more consoles. If someone own only Switch and want to play something, the question becomes even more serious. Indie 1 or indie 2? Or maybe indie 3?

You still dont get it. 

 

If they want to play games on their switch, THERE ARE MANY OPTIONS!!!! 

1. Buy 1st Party games 

2. Buy 2nd Party Games 

3. Buy 3rd Party Games

4. Buy Indie games 

 

Its just that for you, you had no interest in buying the other games in option 1 2 and 3. So you went to 4. Soooo you had the option to not buy indie games. 

5. Buy a game on their Xbox or PS4

There is another topic that states the nearly 3/4 of Switch owners owner at least and Xbox ONe or PS4 as well. So why the hell would they care if the Switch has a DROUGHT or not. THey aren't required to buy some quota of games in a year on a system. If no games come out on the Switch they want, they don't need to buy one. They are not dying to play a video game and buying anything because they can just play on another system.

 

All these Sony defenders on this topic talk as if Switch owners are dying of thirst and grabbing any bottle of water they see. We are not. There are plenty of games on the Switch that are good, and there are plenty of games on other systems that we own that we can buy. We do not need to buy anything on the switch to get our game fix.

One thing I can say about indies, is that they are great to play on Switch, because they don't eat up your battery. If I play Zelda in handheld mode I can go maybe 90 minutes and then I have to charge again. On the other hand I played Axiom Verge for 5-6 hours straight and I still didn't need to charge it at the end.

If I were going on a long trip, then I would definitely want a game like Dead Cells. I just couldn't play a AAA game that long.

Neat. Will have to see if 3D Dark Souls can mirror the 2D Dark Souls when/if it gets released on Switch.

I wonder how much Dark Souls remastered could've sold on Switch, had it released alongside the other versions.

Maybe you don't get it.

1st party games are mainly remaster in 2018.

3rd party games are mainly remaster and in some cases lazy ports.

Then there are indie games.

Why i'll have to pick remaster of games i've already played or that i can find at 1/4 the price elsewhere? 

I don't know if you are a troll or not. Call me Sony defender for what? And after two sentences? Wow asd I'll play everywhere except pc. If the reason it's because you can't, or don't want to, get my point, the discussion for me is done, i don't want to lose any more time on this. Bye :)

Factually wrong. But nice narrative goalpost. indies just sell better on Switch because the installbase cares more. Simple as that. It would sell like this even with 20 triple A titles getting released on Switch and 0 on PS4 in the same month. Interest is what matters. Let's not make excuses.

Did you think that was a fact?

Name me 1 big game coming on Switch other then Smash Bros this holiday season. 

Seems it was already answered by ALA. Looks like you got some time to think about yours.




Not like the Switch userbase has many games to choose from this year. I don't know it's almost crazy to think that the PS4 has a lot more high profile games this year than the Switch, I mean Dead Cells released just a few weeks after God of War.

I don't know how and why this warrants a thread, would the PS4 userbase be more likely to buy God of War and Far Cry 5? or would they want a 2D platformer indie game? Hint: it's not the indie game.

The Switch has no games this year, that's a fact. All they have going for them is Smash to finish of the year and to hide themselves from having nothing to show their consumer base, otherwise, it's been a drought.

I can answer that. I rebought multiple games I already played on WiiU and I liked there, because now woth Switch I can enjoy them everywhere. This is pretty awesome. And this is the reason games like Dead Cells sell so well. Nintendo this time built a machine, that you want your games for, because it offers additional value for said game. Why would I buy a game like Dead Cells on PS4 (and another recent news suggest that a majority of Switch-owners own other systems as well, so could easily buy these games on the other system), if I can play it on Switch on the train, if I visit my parents, on travels in the hotel room, .... This offers so much more playtime to the game.

Eh, of course the Switch version outsells the PS4 version. PS4 just got two amazing exclusives (Dragon Quest and Spiderman and a lot of quality games on sale right now) while Switch is starving for new big games.
