It runs portable versions of some current gen games, where the PS4 runs console versions of the same games (higher res and framerate).

 

Basically I am saying a more acurate version of what you just said.  ;)

lol we'll come to an agreement at some point I feel.

do we shake on it? :D

Read my edit to the original post if you have not already, and we have an ancord.  =P

 

*extends hand*

 

 

EDIT from previous post:  I will give you that some of the most demanding games however would need to be put on a different engine by a second dev team if it wanted any chance of running on Switch though.  There is your middle ground.  =P

I see, I see... we can come to an agreement then :D

I think this is a first time on an internet forum discussion (it might have just broken the internet itself)

If you downgrade DOOM, Wolfenstein, Dragonball Z and other games hard enough, even the N64 will be able to run it. That doesn't make the performance current gen. First of all, going from 60fps to 30fps is a MASSIVE downgrade. And then they also have to lower texture detail, lighting, rendering and much more. This amount of adjusting takes months because they have to re-evaluate the whole game. And then besides all the downgrades, also content is missing. 

Switch is running last gen games, not current gen. And that for 320 euros excluding a game is way too much. 

And yet, it sells like crazy. 

It's crazy right? The Switch offers absolutely nothing more (way less actually) than Wii U did at launch and its features and content atm is severy lacking. Yet Wii U numbers were abysmal. I think the console/handheld hybrid hype is making people blind when it comes to price/content ratio.

Or maybe it is a product people want regardless of your opinion on the concept?

3ds is shit compared to wiiu, yet people bought 3ds 10x more, people like to buy nintedo handhelds, and switch is a modern nintedo handheld, what did you expect?

Not to mention the WiiU lacked any 1st party blockbusters and went into a draught early.

 

Meanwhile the Switch has had BotW, Mario, and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 hit in less than a year, which is a HUGE deal.  Not to mention other good exclusives like Splatoon 2, ARMs, Mario Plus Rabbids, Fire Emblem Warriors, Mario Kart 8 Delux (recent WiiU port), Pokken (recent WiiU port), etc.

 

Furthermore while 3rd party support for WiiU started strong, it died fast.  Switch on the other hand is GAINING 3rd party support and has much mkre long term potential than the WiiU ever did.

This thread is fairly insane for the amount of time people have invested in a port of a game on a console they will never buy.

That said, having played the first 4-5 stages of this I can confirm there is nothing like this on the handheld right now, amazing work they done putting this onto a system like the Switch. More than happy to support that amount of work and support from the dev.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

DOOM, Wolfenstein II, Dragonball Xenoverse 2, NBA2k18, WWE2k18, Dagonquest (whatever the newest one is), etc are all current gen games that are either here or coming, and there are more to come.  Plus 1st party exclusives are current gen as well.

Try harder

If you downgrade DOOM, Wolfenstein, Dragonball Z and other games hard enough, even the N64 will be able to run it. That doesn't make the performance current gen.

Content, you mean level editor that nobody knows that Doom have it at all!? Nobody really cares about Doom level editor.

Doom is current gen game, not last gen, same like NBA 2K18, Rocket League, Wolfenstein 2...

Is this serious post!? I really hope its not. :)

Switch has killer 1st year lineup, has two most critically acclaimed games this generation in 1st 8 months of console on market, and also has games like MK8D and Splatoon 2 that are also very strong and system seller games, Wii U didnt had nothing even similar. Besides great and strong games, Switch has great concept and appealing, console that can be played anywhere and anytime, real home console and handheld in one, and actualy offers two controllers out of box for local multiplayer.
