The Switch as it is already offers enough to third parties. If they want to support it, they will, if they won't, they won't.
Offering a Pro model won't change that, devs won't suddenly decide to put games on it, especially when they can only sell to a fraction of the userbase. It's just flushing R&D money down the toilet for zero gain.
If the port is easy enough and doesn't ask the developer to jump through 3000 hoops I think some devs definitely will be amenable to putting more PS4/XB1 tier content on the device especially the really popular games. Nintendo has catchet now too because the Switch brand has been proven to be successful and has good demographics at that too -- it's not soccer moms or little kids fuelling the success of the device. So Nintendo has credibility now with devs that they didn't have 3-4 years ago, Switch is for real.
It doesn't really matter anyway, because Nintendo will likely offer the Pro model first and foremost because they want in on the same gravy train Sony/MS are cashing in on. NPD just released a report that the XBox One X has been a huge boom to XBox One sales. It's simply good business to have a "Pro" model these days, you can charge more money and reap higher profits while having that setup allows you to sell more hardware overall.
Nintendo these days is more about the bottom line and increasing revenue/profit. No way they stay away from the Pro-model concept for long. Apple was already showing how its done, but Sony/MS jumping on that bandwagon with game console iterations of that concept basically sealed the deal.Last edited by Soundwave - on 01 December 2018
