- and others that I might forgot

They mostly relied on first partty games alone with all their other consoles too.

Yes, and with the Wii being the exception, it's been going downward since the SNES.

But the handheld sales are a lot more stable, with the 3DS selling almost as much as the GBA and the DS selling more than the GameBoy.

Nintendo now only has 1 console anymore, which means they can develop more games for it than for any of their other consoles/handhelds.

Nope. Nintendo still has the 3DS as well.

When they stop producing anything for it, we'll know if the strategy they have for the Switch (one console bringing both of their markets as one) will pay off.





But seriously, this is about as surprising as learning MS is releasing a new Forza next year. Nintendo's found themselves in the same corner they backed Sega into during 3td gen. 'Nuff said.

The Switch can't handle any of these game, at least with the same fidelity that the PS4/XB1/PC can. We've been over this a million times, why beat this dead horse? I don't know any of the specs by heart but one look at all the consoles and you can tell what doesn't go where.

The Switch will live (at least for this first year) entirely on Nintendo IPs, heavy hitters and indies. If the sales are great, maybe some 3rd party stuff will be worth porting over. I'm expecting a lot of announcements at E3. And let's be frank, if you're buying a switch for anything other than Nintendo IPs, just no.

I suppose no major titles will come to the 3DS anymore, and Nintendo will stop developping 3DS games after 2017.

The Switch is clearly more important now, unlike past generations, when they had 2 important consoles to develop for.

This thread is about 3rd party games/support, your list is all 1st party aside from MH lol

Besides, anybody that picks up a NS knows that those 1st party games and MH are likely to come to NS anyways and is expected.  People want more 3rd party support for NS or else it'll just be like Wii U and that's what nobody wants.



Sounds like flamebait to me.



Intel Core i7 8700K | 32 GB DDR 4 PC 3200 | ROG STRIX Z370-F Gaming | RTX 3090 FE| Crappy Monitor| HTC Vive Pro :3

I think only Battlefront would have a strong audience on the Switch anyway...

It's another leo-j classic in the making.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
