I keep going in circles with you people and we keep coming to the same conclusion.

People on Nintendo and portable devices aren't that interested in the same experiences popular on Xbox and PlayStation.

I think there is potential for core games to do well on Switch (be profitable), but generally not at the same level as X1 and PS4.

They're not as interested in games like COD for example but actual core experiences they are interested in with in the library which is different from what you're trying to say for example Zelda is a core game experience as is Odyssey, Doom, L.A. N and various indies.

Experiences is not the same as specific games.

Right, so you agree the Switch audience is not as interested in the same popular core titles found on X1 and PS4. That's all I'm pointing out. I mean it would be nice to see some of that on Switch, but its unlikely it will thrive for various reasons.

I think Skyrim can do well on Switch. Maybe Doom and LA Noire can do okay, we can only guess right now. Basically I think there is potential for profit but I don't think its gonna be significant.

People buying the Switch aren't looking for something different they're buying the Switch because it offers the type of gaming they like only more tailored to their gaming habits, these are people who may travel a lot or have a specific schedule to the point gaming on your usual platforms isn't as frequent or easy. I think you're mixing up parallels here the Switch isn't a blue or red ocean where it was new gamers strat it's just tackling the whole current market from a new angle that hadn't been approached yet with a product that is appealing and executed well.

The Switch can easily get the same core appeal you know why? Because like every other platform from Nintendo that was portable it will have games specific to its library that make up for the games it doesn't get such as SE planning mid range titles for it and so on.
