People need to stop and think before bashing on EA (I know it's fun guys, and in most cases they deserve it) Porting EA's biggest franchises into a Switch would require much more resources and money than porting a game like Minecraft, that can run on a toaster.

I gave up waiting for Sims 4 on the switch.

A new game is unlikely to be announced. A character for Smash or the confirmation of a port (such as the first Ori game) are more probable options, especially the latter.

I'm thinking there's more to it than that. Miyamoto was reportedly going to show up at the Microsoft conference, but there were flight issues and that's why it was shorter than planned. I highly doubt he would go through the trouble of showing up if it were were a port. 

Oh is this real? I was watching Easy Allies and they were sort of surprised how quickly the Xbox Briefing ended.

Yes because it was reported the conference was 2 hours and 20 minutes long while we got only 90 minutes.

^ I wonder what EA will say when Fifa20 on Switch inevitably bombs while the previous two did good. I bet they won’t have a clue why that happened and blame it on Nintendo fans not buying 3rd party games.

Weren't the previous FIFA games on Switch the same type of 'Legacy' versions?

EA is a big publisher with a lot of franchises. EA did FIFA (and this time only a roster upgrade), Fe and Unravel - and that's it. Sure, the new Star Wars game is probably not going to be ported over. But The Sims? More small games under their umbrella (that's what Fe and Unravel are) like Sea of Solitude? A Way Out? Some of their mobile stuff (you know like Bethesda bringing ES Blades, Fallout Shelter and ES Legends to Switch)? Other sport games besides FIFA like Madden? Need for Speed (which was on WiiU)? Aport of an older game like Dragon Age or Mass Effect?

Nothing of that would be hard to port.

Oh wow! Damn what a shame! That would have saved Xbox for me at least. Any news on how they will share what the surprise was going to be?

I'm holding off on getting Game pass for PC in case they announce it for Switch as well in case you can't use the account for both.

Perhaps the Switch will be one of the handheld devices for the Xbox streaming (either from the xCloud servers via internet or from your own Xbox One).

"Remote play" from the local Xbox One to the Switch within the same WiFi could work nice. A "Switch 5G" model could follow to play Xbox games anywhere.

Yet games like MK11, DOOM, Wolfenstein, 2K sports, and the like seem to do fine.

What's this obsession of Nintendo fans with EA? Last time I checked they were the worst thing that ever happened to gaming and Nintendo fans look at it and say: "Damn, I wish worst thing that ever happened to gaming senpai would notice me".

It's just one guy and it's always the same guy.

Riiiiight... they cut off about 45 minutes because Miyamoto didn't show up.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
