I think they're fine either way.

The thing about having their own system is that they have a captive audience. They can sell stuff like Star Fox because it's on a system with few games and a lot of people who buy anything with "Nintendo" written on it. Imagine Star Fox in the crowded market-place of the PS4/XO. People wouldn't buy that last game because they would have a lot more options. After awhile, that "buy everything from Nintendo" attitude would fade away.

The big stuff would still sell very well, of course, but the weaker stuff would be dust in the wind.

A third-party Nintendo would cut down on the amount of content they produce by a significant amount. That's not much of a negative, to be honest, especially considering some of the weaker games the Wii U had on offer.

I don't think they need it, so I agree they are fine either way, but I think they should.

I agree, some franchises would now face competition, but the boost in people able ti buy their games should more than outweight it in the big picture, it won't be "the only one I can get" anymore but will be a brand famous company game that now have 5x the amount of possible consumers to gice it a try.

Nope.I can understand you left a bit underwhelmed by the presentation, but Nintendo should always have its hardware.Its healthy for the market.

And since you made this thread, you must obviously care about Nintendo games but not enough to buy them at this price.Give it two years.By then the price should be greatly diminished(I bet it will be around 200 dollars or a excellent bundle for 250, with the acessories hopefully being much cheaper) and thus worth purchasing for you.



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

Everyone should go third party. In a perfect world.



Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.

What's Legend of Lagoon?

a game about a the legend of lagoon obviously

 

don't ask me dumb questions

Then don't give dumb answers like that?

Because, obviously, Legend of Lagoon isn't a game.

After we agree legend of lagoon is garbage

We agree that legend of lagoon is garbage.

Now you can never buy a Nintendo hardware anymore.

Yes I do, I like some Nintendo games, always have.

When I addressed my feedback on the event, Nintendo first party was the only positive point of it, as always.

I grew playing SNES and GB.



Nintendo already are heading towards third party, in releasing games for mobile, (a thing Nintendo fans only a year or so ago would have ferociously denied would ever happen).

Only a matter of time really.

Yes, where competition doesn't matter, being able to play all games on a single place would be perfect.

Nintendo doesn't have direct competition, so as I said, everybody wins.



This idea is not a new one and I agree completely. Nintendo makes good software (not my type, but quality software regardless) and absolutely terrible hardware.

It's a no brainer that their fans would equally enjoy Nintendo games on platforms that are more powerful while also enjoying actual 3rd party software as well without the extra cost of another console (and now also 2nd online subscription).

Should be a win for all including Nintendo. No more r&d for hardware that keeps losing them mindshare among gamers.



It would make it so much easier for their fans if their games were made for pc/xb1/ps4 instead. Superior console features like trophies and cross game chat.

Cheaper console to buy. Huge library all on one platform. Nintendo could make their games more impressive with the extra pressure.

Only need to sub to one online service.

If the Switch flops it's not good but at least it might push Nintendo closer to that third party status.
