The Switch will bodely go where no one has gone before, its future is written in italic.



Around the Network



"Red Dead Redemption" is the only game that I might be interested.



Is this even relevant for its future? I think not...

Art Direction > Realism

I even doubt Destiny 2 will sell over 10 million, since the first Destiny only sold about 13 million copies.

Since Destiny was kind of a failure, a lot of people wouldn't want the second game, even if it's good. The same thing happened to Watch Dogs 2.

 

Also, nobody considers it to be the 2nd biggest franchise this gen, because it simply isn't.

Doesn't matter if they launched on Switch or not. Nintendo has backed themselves into a corner, they'll never be relevant for these 3rd Party titles. Even if they launched on the thing it wouldn't help them significantly.

Nintendo can't capture the CoD, Assassin's Creed, RDR, Battlefront, Destiny, Battlefield, Mass Effect crowd and they can't capture the revenue that comes from that. The majority of the fanbases for those crowds would never play them on a Nintendo device.

They have to rely almost completely on first party, which hopefully now they can focus on one device, they can deliver to an incredible degree.

 

The polls max numerical option being 30 million is just insulting bait though.

In this case I think they would, Switch is a slick device, don't get it twisted, most people buying it are adults and it has been positively received by the hardcore gaming community more or less I would say. 

Being able to play fairly high end 3D games anywhere is an appealling core feature. 

The issue is it's hard to port these games likely without major sacrifices having to be made, particularily to run in portable mode. 

There are other games that are doable, but Star Wars in particular I think would be tough.

I agree with all of this.

Breath of The Wild, Splatoon 2, MK Deluxe and Mario Oddissey are not being released on ps4 or XBO

Does this bold well for their futures?

What does the PS4/XBO and 1st party IPs have to do with anything in this thread, really?



The Switch was never going to sell on 3rd party titles, have we learned nothing in 20 years or so?
