Lol, people act like PS4 hasn't been the recipient of gaggles of ports as well. I don't see the problem with ports as long as there is new software in development concurrently. 

I come from ye old times when new consoles meant new games. We didn't want games from old systems. I guess old habits die hard because I still feel the same way. I have old games. And if I don't, I know where Ebay is. A new console should mean new games imo.

Agreed. So far, the Switch is severely lacking in substantial new games this year. Nearly everything is regurgitated leftovers or C tier filler.

Coming the year after we got Breath of the Wild, Mario Odyssey, Kingdom Battle, Splatoon 2, and Xenoblade 2 all in less than 9 months, it sucks to be back in the doldrums.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

I dont know about you, but I dont see Kirby, Yoshi, Labo, Fire Emblem, MT: Aces, Smash (yes I believe it's a new entry), Octopath Traveller, No More Heroes, World Ends with You: Final Remix  is lacking in substantial. All exclusives no less (sort of). Then there's new multiplat releases in DQ Builders 2, Mega Man 11, Dark Souls Remastered, Street Fighter 30th Collection, Starlink, Attack on Titan 2, Pillars of Eternity 2, Titan Quest as well.

And saying regurgigated leftovers / C-Tier about the likes of DKC:TF, HW: DE, Owlboy, Undertale, Crash, Southpark, Darkest Dungeon, Little Nightmares: CE, Captain Toad, YS VIII, Battle Chasers, Wolf 2.. well then that's on you.

We're 2 months and 9 days in to the year. There's going to be more revealed at the very least at E3 and through out the rest of the year as well.

But bla bla bla. 

Your age only shows in the way that you are going senile.

The only console generation without ports was the Atari 2600 era, and even that is arguable because games from the arcades were ported to it.

The NES was full of ports of older arcade games and PC games. The SNES obviously got ports of NES games. Super Mario All-Stars is one of the best-selling games of its generation, so your statement that "we didn't want games from old systems" is laughably wrong.

Throughout the entirety of console history, there have been ports. Today's consoles have a higher number of ports than previous consoles for the simple reason that publishers today have access to a higher number of legacy titles than ever before.

Ports being present is a given, so the only real argument can be about the amount and pedigree of new games. Switch has no problem to be one of the best consoles in video game history when it comes to new games released through year 1. Switch's status won't change for the worse in comparisons that go through year 2.

You can get someone like curl-6 to agree with you, because both of you tend to use an emotional perspective instead of an analytical perspective. Both of you disregard games that you are not interested in, but such an approach has only a tiny chance to be remotely close to an objective statement.



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

Seems like a lot of people will be happy... I'll look if it is heavily discounted for PS4 during my trip and buy it.

Even Genesis/Master System had ports from one another like Alexis Kidd, Altered Beast, Sonic and California Games.

I’ll admit I was wrong. Definitely did not see this development coming. Thought Sony would prevent it

When you think of the NES, what do you think when you think software? Now do the same for SNES, Genesis, PS1 etc. Did a fucking PORT come to mind? I'm guessing not.

And why do you think that is? Is it because back then, ports were treated by gamers like a case herpes?  Is it because game companies back then knew that they were third-hand titles that not many people wanted and kept them in the background? 

The answer to both is yes. We didn't WANT ports. They were scoffed at and dismissed.

Games like Donkey Kong, Pacman, and even Tetris were ports and people LOVED them

Obviously ports came to my mind, because I clearly said it in my post that even those old consoles had ports, including Super Mario All-Stars which nobody thought of as a third-hand title.

I am baffled by the level of denial in your post.

Super Mario All Stars is a port? You should edit that before someone reports you for trolling?
