EA market strategy- design game and put most interesting characters/ make game easier behind paywall of "surprise mechanics".  Unlock achievement: EA whore once user throws down 200 plus in gambling for loot. 

Hope they lose their case and I'm not happy Nintendo has gone to shady loot boxes for their mobile games.  I don't play mobile games so I don't care much but still.  Hope these companies get banned from loot boxes from all countries.

You are worried about mobile loot boxes now when nintendo locked contemt behind amiibo purchases back on the wiiu?

Ha... I actually like the damn amiibos just sitting there on my shelves.  I don't give a fuck about what they unlock or do.  I tried a few out in Smash and they made the lvling too damn quick and it was pointless after a few hours once they lvled all the way up.  So to answer your question.  I bought them to look at not to unlock shit in game.

It amazes me how many people think how unimportant real, signifcant third party support from companies like EA is for long-term success of a console's life.

Yes I know, "Fuck EA, they're cancer, worst company in America"... EA brings in $5 billion a year. That's an enormous consumer base. Their games matter to the gaming community whether you like it or not.

There are millions of people out there that won't consider a console that doesn't have games like Call of Duty, Madden, Grand Theft Auto, and Assassin's Creed. How many Switches could Nintendo sell if they had these franchises on their platform?

Let's see the DS had half assed CoD and GTA that barely sold.  GTA on DS sold semi decent but wasn't gang busters.  How many sales did the DS pull without most of those franchises or half ass versions?  Believe it ended up being 2nd highest system sold.

Who said anything about half-assed versions?

And still hybrid ? If not, then look at the Xbox One. And if you want an hybrid system, then obviously you have to give up something else.

Or, and the Wii was also a success.

It's only a "hybrid" because Nintendo says it is. It's a handheld that shipped with a way to connect it to a TV out of the box. What did they really give up by "making it hybrid" exactly? A little bit of manufacturing cost by having the detachable controllers (which are easily its worst, and one of its least refined features) and shipping it with a dock, both of which they'll likely wipe out by making a "Switch Mini" which is little more than "A switch with all of the 'hybrid' features removed", which just reaffirms just how much of a handheld it really is.

Sure, the Wii was a success. It had significant support from every major third party, including EA. What's your point?

First bolded: It's a hybrid because it has two interchangeable playstyles,handheld and tv,not only because Nintendo says it is but by the nature of this product.

Second bolded: Yes that makes it a hybrid.

Tell us how many.



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

So the only reason PSP Go is not a hybrid was that the dock that allowed you to connect it to a TV and use a PS3 controller with it was sold separately. Seems pretty flimsy.

No,i was never invested into psp Go but if that was the case you might consider it had the option to be hybrid and the switch in its current state because the handheld is sold together with the dock could be called a hybrid yes.

Flimsy or not,as long as 2 elements can be utilized trough one device or product like how the switch is currently sold you can call it a hybrid. Switch mini is not a hybrid because that option has been removed.
