No lol. There are tons of games coming out on it, including remasters I've never played before. When Nintendo introduces a new IP, people always at first think it looks stupid, but most often those games turn into ones we remember the most about those systems (Splatoon, Pikmin, Wii Sports, etc).

The punching game, personally, looks like it could be the next great thing. That game looked absolutely amazingly fun to play.

And the whole POINT of the Switch is that it allows you to play games in such a unique fashion and change it up whenever you want. If anything, getting rid of one of the redundant hd twins makes a lot more sense. Rather, I'd like to have just Nintendo devices and PC, at least until Microsoft and Sony stop focusing on graphics and more on innovation within the industry. I mean seriously, some people may hate 1-2-switch, but my goodness is that something I NEVER would have expected! Nintendo is the company that comes up with brand new ideas.

I actually think 1-2-switch would be like the perfect game for when you invite a bunch of friends over and want to do a party game. I do this every Monday night with some friends (my wife and I invite over people) and sometimes we do boardgames. This game and device would be amazing for those nights!

Why should Nintendo be the ones to go third party?

Because they're the ones making hardware people don't want.

Well those 70+ million people that bought Nintendo systems this gen doesn't count?

That's addressed in the OP.

1. They don't have direct competition, lack market understanding on building hardware (while they do on software), they keep losing market reach keeping tying their games to their hardware, and have no services built around their hardware to justify it.

Their strength lies deeply on their software, like any third party company.

Well i disagree. Yeah i can agree they make underpowered hardware but that doesn't mean they don't understand the market on building hardware.

3D was really popular so they made the 3DS which ended up being a success.

Tablets and gaming on tablets were and still are big when the Wii U came out and yes it did fail but that's like only 1 mistake,

Now they noticed how popular taking games on the go and know that they want to throw all their support on one system so they made the Switch. Yes its nto as powerful as other consoles but power  shouldn't be what we use to determine that they don't understand the hardware market because they seem to be doing whats popular and it only failed once with e Wii U.

I want them free and crazy and not tied to others, for each "Arms" and each "1.2" switch we have a xenoblade and breath of the wild. Without their freedom we would have a bunch of new super mario bros wii and a bunch of twilight princess.

well maybe we have different perspective, and I apologize.

But they would be tied to nobody.

They have the money, they have the IPs, they have their fans. They can keep on doing their games, but for more people to have access.

without hardware revenue they can't afford to have those crazy ideas and longer development times, they will need a constant stream of game and the quality will be affected because of that. Maybe still polished, but I prefer a polished mario odyssey than a polished new super mario bros wii. It's a bigger picture than just "ok we will develop games for everyone" plus they have to share their revenue.

All consoles are expendable. PC can do what they do but better (besides playing exclusive games ofc but without consoles there would be only digital platform exclusives instead of platform exclusives).

I actually want Sony to go third party more, but I realize how stupid that sounds, so I tend to just keep my mouth shut.

I like when you say Bilions of PC yet most of the games on PC barely pass 1 mil mark only few of them pass so i wouldn't count PC for any revenue it's only good for f2p and few other titles and all that drm yeah no thanks. (there you go)

Yes they will cut for physical it's like digital doesn't exist here but no matter but they sure as hell will get more then they will to port them to PS4/Xbox/PC

And like i said cost of development for consoles and PC.

And to pay for other stuff for dev kits and god knows what else.

Most of the games on... everything... barely pass 1 mil. Besides, I was talking about potential customer base meaning owners. As in billions of PC owners vs 15 million Wii U owners.

Cost of development for consoles/PC wouldn`t be any more than it is for Nintendo`s own consoles.

You do know that there is a cost to develop for PC then on PS/Xbox to be packed in dev kits to make them run.

Pc you have to develop individualy,PS4/Xbox they all have their individial Dev kits they cost they aren't given for free.

I don't know but shit ton of games on Ps4/Xbox passed a million easy and they were full triple a multiplat games.

Not really. Their hardware is still creative and interesting. I'm buying Switch later this year.

Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

Wow! You really want Nintendo making games for your system! LMAO! Buy the Switch if you want them games!

Pocky Lover Boy!

Should point out that buying Nintendo systems and actually wanting them are two different things. I bought two 3DS` and a Wii U this gen, still don`t/didn`t want their hardware though

Well you wanted them enough to buy them. Thats good enough.
