Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Prefered 3rd Party support on Switch

 

What would you prefer for 3rd parties on Switch?

No western multiplats, mo... 18 75.00%
 
No 3rd party exclusives, ... 6 25.00%
 
Total:24

In that scenario, I'd go for the exclusive for sure. I have a PS4 and a PC for the multiplatform games, I don't need them on Switch.

You forgot one key criteria in your assessment.

Most Nintendo gamers have a Japanese fetish. So that alone will give it a boost.

Western games have never been a strong point even if the game could be better.

Most JRPGs will be on both PS4/PS5 as well as Switch.  The Switch dominates japan, but most western gamers have a PS4.  As JRPGs continue to grow in popularity in the west, there will always be good reason to bring the games to Playstation as well.  With that in mind, I do not see this as a Switch advantage, just a shared library of games that is inevitable.

Im more talking about the Nintendo only games.


Only 3rd party they give a chance is Japanese ones.

Western ones they nit pick little things. or compare apples to oranges to justify why they won't buy

Meanwhile those with multiple consoles and the time to play at home could care less about these ports.

As for my personal preference, since I have a PS4 and don't care for the portable aspect of Switch, the obvious answer is I'd want more unique games.

I would prefer to have all the Western multiplats over exclusives. As well as the Japanese ones.

I anxiously await the day where I can play Mario, Zelda, Pokemon, Sonic, Grand Theft Auto, Assassin's Creed, Final Fantasy, and Persona on the same system.

Would you though. I mean would you get those third party games on a much weaker console?

 

I would rather have games made for the system. No need to play the newest AAA games on the Switch imo.

I mean, there's no reason Switch can't have both. We're at a point with this industry where it's clear the devs making new games aren't the same ones making ports, so there's realistically no reason to have to pick. This is a rare case of having your cake and eating it, too. It's not like we can't have apples because the orange tree is still maturing.

I never said there was a reason not to have both.  I asked IF you had to choose, which one would you pick?  This is a black and white scenario put forth for fun to see what the community would prefer if they could only have one.  Being able to have both or not is irrelevant to the discussion at hand.

Ah. Then more exclusive games, since I play my multiplatform games on PS4 for Trophies.

So now people suddenly like the idea of 3rd party exclusives? Good to know.

They could come to the PS4 and XB1 as well. Just made with the Switch in mind and not just ported after releasing on the other consoles. Im sure games like Octopath Traveler would do well on them.

If Nintendo fronts the bill and published the game, why not?  Bayonetta 2 and 3 would not exist if not for Nintendo.  Nintendo published Octopath Traveler and helped fund the game.

 

There is a clear difference between investing and taking part of the publishing process vs simply buying timed exclusive rights for the hell of it.

 

Besides these are new IPs and collaborations I am talking about, not long standing franchises being locked off of other platforms.  Bayo 3 is the exception, but Sony and MS turned the idea down.  Blame them, not Nintendo.
