Yeah, that's not how this works. Equal size audience doesn't mean the audience has the same interest. I think the Switch has more core gamers than Wii, but the general Nintendo audience and technical limitations don't make Switch a priority.
Unfortunate or pathetic, whatever. Saint's Row 3 should be better on Switch based on other 7th gen ports. Before we even consider if the next Saint's Row is feasible on Switch, I think we need to see what it is. I mean we don't want an open world game on Switch that looks like Ark.
Nope, an open world game like Zelda or Skyrim though, those two open world games which function perfectly on the switch, that's just fine.
But if you want to try and convince yourself that "switch sales numbers don't count because I'd like them not to" ignoring things like the m rated games from Japan being localized on it and not the ps4 then there's no point in discussing this really with you I think. Would just be a case of numbers and game releases showing one thing and your feelings showing another that I could not or would not bother showing you information to change.
You know what? Maybe they'll make a Xbox one X exclusive saints row in 4k because that would be the best audience who would love that game right?
Sigh... I really hope you didnt actually read what I said. Atleast I wouldnt question your reading comprehension.
Was this a debate on whether or not Switch could do open world games? No.
Nintendo platforms since Wii havent done a great job, or as good of job moving core 3rd party software as Xbox and Playstation. Not really a debate even if Nintendo consoles have had some success there.
The userbase certainly matters for Switch, this is why their 1st party games are doing extremely well. Its not reflected equally on 3rd party core games though.
Xbox One and PS4 hardware are very similar and thats why they share a lot of games. Supporting Switch is clearly more difficult and is often handled by a different studio. MK11 is a recent example.
If you were less passionate about Switch, simply looked at facts, you would make an occasional valid argument.
