Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Alienware, promoting their Switch clone, tweets, "Switch is cool but... the limited number of games on it isn't"

Offtopic but this reminded me of the "PS3 has no games" myth for some reason.

Myth? To this day, there was only one actual game released for the PS3: Super Rub A Dub. That's it. It still blows my mind how it sold so well with nothing to play on it.

Unfortunately all consoles have a limited number of games.

I can't wait for Alienware UFO to show off its unlimited library of infinite games.

So pleased the Alienware comes with 2 controllers. Can't wait to play all those great PC local multiplayer games.

Don't Play Stationary 4 ever. Switch!

If I wanted an unlimited number of games, I would just play on my PC, since it has all the emulators I may need.

You know it deserves the GOTY.

The price for Switch isn't cool....but the unknown price for Alienware Concept UFO is? And 2,000+ games is considered limited?

Dell, go home. You're drunk.

Post does look drunk.  Whats up with those special characters.  Is that what cool kids do these days in stupid tweets?  --c&V☼τ"ÿ═âmm@û♪

With Sony going to PC, does that make this the new PSP by default?

Well it will be interesting to see their cheap console with unlimited games then...

Can it run Zelda, Mario, Metroid, Pokemon?


Yes, it can! At least emulated it should run anything up to the Wii games. =P

And it doesn't matter how many games the switch has, the catalogue on PC will dwarf any console that is out there.

That said, it won't run switch games, so yeah, I'll still hang on to my switch for that. It's a nice little concept though and there is already a switch emulator available, although most games run like shit right now. Let's just say both devices have their benefits.

*cough* yuzu emulator *cough*

Now, more on topic, it's very obvious that there are a lot more games on PC than on any console, past or present. That said, there's a very big differnce between having access to a lot more games and being able to actually play those games, something this thing won't be able to do because it won't have a powerful enough SoC due to heat and power restrictions.

All in all, this is nothing more than another "Sega does what Nintendon't" slogan that doesn't mean anything.

Please excuse my bad English.

This Alienware thing will not be successful and in a year nobody will ever talk about it ever again.

I feel this "console" will get more coverage for copying Switch, rather than competing with it.



In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!
