How about buy another platform.

There is always the argument its the only portable option that delivers console quality experiences. I think its combo of optimizing for Switch may be difficult for this engine and they saw low sales potential.

But I predict they could come back to Switch down the road, the userbase is growing fast.

GTAV is on PS360...Switch is stronger than PS360...pretty sure GTAV would be a simple port if they ported those versions.

No longer supported, sadly. Without GTA Online, T2 won't give a fuck. Switch has a much stronger GPU, but system bandwidth is similar. In favor of X360, it has eDRAM, which is 256 GB/s. Switch has no embedded RAM.

wait, do you think the X360 is more capable than the Switch?



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

In memory bandwidth, yes. Overall? Hell no. But if if it's a bottleneck, it's a bottleneck. If you can't feed your cores from memory, it doesn't matter how much faster your cores are.

So what does this mean for T2's support on the Switch? WWE failed spectacularly due to their own fault (that performance was inexcusable), NBA did mediocre numbers and so did LA Noire. I'm still surprised they didn't even bother with GTA5. It was the only multiplat almost guaranteed to become a multimillion seller, and the same could've been said for the original Red Dead Redemption. Do they think the platform is not worth it, or do the porting costs outweight the potential sales?

??

NBA 2K19 is coming out on Switch day and date, LA Noire sold poorly on all platforms and the Switch version outsold the Xbox One version, so i'm not sure why you point to those as points of concern. Regarding GTA5 That's most likely on it's way, my guess is Take-Two is waiting for when the carts drop in price and the 64 GB cart is introduced which isn't gonna happen until late 2018/early 2019 iirc, for GTA they're probably aiming to use a 32 GB cart but they are too expensive, have patients. Red Dead Redemption's code is a mess, that's not getting ported to any platform. WWE 2k19 not coming to Switch is expected given the state it launched in and is currently at, they at the very least need to take a year off and re-evaluate their approach.

Good. Fuck 'em. I bought the most expensive version of this turd at 1am on launch day and after the shitty treatment they gave to us Switch owners, they will NEVER get another penny from me.

Ouch... I was gonna do the same thing, but the circumstances surrounding the release made me pull back, I still bought the game a few days later at a discount, but I was not gonna buy the season pass or anything else. I had the lowest of standards for the game, my only requirement really was for singles matches to be playable, so i'm not too burned on the game I guess. I'm sorry to hear this from you, I saw a bunch of posts from you and you seemed very excited about it, it's a shame things turned out the way they did...

If you don't mind me asking, did they release the rest of the DLC? I haven't checked my self and I also don't know how much DLC they were planning to release.



Just saw the poll . Is 2k really only going to port shovelware only?

I can't think of any shovelware that Take-Two publishes aside from the 'Carnival Games' series.

Yeah, but X360/PS3 also had less than 512MB of RAM and that was huge bottleneck for their version GTAV of game, Switch has 3GB RAM for games, in other words they can use more of Switch more Switch strengths during port.



In other words "we cant be F#$@"



It's a huge shame, especially considering how good the NBA 2K18 port was.

Though it's probably for the best, to be honest.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Part of the reason I didn't buy it because you were forced to download extra data same with LA Noire.

Fix that issues and i will buy your game.
