Conclusion :

It can , but the graphic will make the games look different and unplayable  

Around the Network

Or they could do stream only version in Japan which would leave graphics same and playable as long as good internet connection.

An interesting conclusion but he is underestimating what the Poles can do.

If they could take Monte Cassino in WWII, they can get this little job done.

Ok stretching at straws ahaha.



Or, it could be completely remade in a new engine? I don't know how viable that option is, but it could pay off.

Vote the Mayor for Mayor!

Part of me wonders whether it's actually The Witcher II which is being ported to the Switch, and it's being misreported as III. Considering that II already has a 360 port, it'd probably be easy to bump its resolution up to 1080p, maybe make a few other graphical improvements, and slap it on the Switch.

(Then again, they said the same thing about Saint's Row the Third, and look how that turned out...)

Around the Network

Pretty daring statement at this time, if it happens that they’re wrong and the game gets announced in a couple of days looking halfway decent, it would hurt their credibility.

I doubt it would run on NSW, unless it's streaming.

God bless You.

My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

There were three ravens sat on a tree / They were as blacke as they might be / The one of them said to his mate, Where shall we our breakfast take?

Well even the non-experts here know it will be a very hard battle to make it happen

duduspace11 "Well, since we are estimating costs, Pokemon Red/Blue did cost Nintendo about $50m to make back in 1996"

Mr Puggsly: "Hehe, I said good profit. You said big profit. Frankly, not losing money is what I meant by good. Don't get hung up on semantics"

Azzanation: "PS5 wouldn't sold out at launch without scalpers."

I mean, a port of anything is theoretically possible. Now what it will end up looking like and running like...who the hell knows.

No, that ain‘t DF‘s conclusion!

He only says that it won‘t be an easy port and that some areas would have to be reworked.
