Sometimes it pays not to listen to the customer.

In this case Nintendo's vision was spot on.

Nintendo functions on the Henry Ford principle of products.

He said, “If I asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses.

Nintendo said a long time ago that they make the games you didn't know you wanted yet.

lol, nice!

I don't see them cutting the price any time soon, maybe in 2019, it really depends on what they do with the 3DS, what software they're planning on releasing and how the baseline holds up. Besides the obvious lack of supply in Japan that needs to be met, I don't really see much reason why the baseline should be abnormally high after the holidays though, ports and remakes are a much more tough sell and it would take quite something to garner as much interest as Zelda, Splatoon 2 and Mario Odyssey in around 6 months did.

Side note, i prefer the Pro Controller for 'traditional' console gaming, like i usually did with the Wii U. Ergonomically simply way better. But even with my relatively big hands i have no issues using Switch in handheld mode. The joycons are also used as a second controller.

 

As for the ports, it seems that Skyrim and Doom sold decently for ports of that age. And games like Bayonetta 2 or Tropical Freeze will actually be new to many Switch owners. Together with actually new games i don't see a lack of content. And we have to keep in mind how long Nintendos core IP's usually sell. SMO, BOTW and MK8Deluxe might sell well for years. With more and more japanese devs supporting Switch, already a ton of indie games and all that it acutlly looks pretty good, even more so if you look at more average gamers. There's no lack of content.

Switch and pricing might get interesting as well. Right now Switch is at 329,-€ in Europe, without any game. At the same time 3DS XL is at 199, 2DS XL 129-149,-€ and a 2DS from as low as 80,-€. Basically only 3DS XL is still expensive. And Nintendo wants to sell 20 million within the next fiscal year.

With the 3DS family very soon getting no major releases anymore i see a real chance for a Switch price cut to somewhere in the 249-269,-€ region and 3DS XL getting phased out this year while 2DS and 2DS XL might be sold for quite some time as budget devices.



How do you feel about it now?




I went looking for any posts I may have made in this thread, and page 4 repeatedly brought me to a deceptive site warning. The red alert kind. Where everything is RED!

Exactly!

For the longest time, the complaining has been the same. "how come Nintendo isn't releasing mature games?". And as always that was never the solution.

Look at Brain Age. They solved the "maturity" problem by being themselves. Doing what everyone else does is never the solution..

This isn't the only thread that it's happened  to in the past week or so ,I have seen the warning on two other threads ,  I filled out the report to google and then came here but I unchecked the box that wanted permission for  some of my details and the sites sent to them, just in case the phishing was done through a fake warning.
