Sounds terrible. Games I do not care about is one thing. I just bought 5 more Wii U digital games that I played for a few hours and will never look at them again. But games I invest major money in I do not want to be only digital. Whether this is true or not, that is where games are going and I ignore every Switch game that says no disc included.

I know this is probably the minority, so the future is coming no matter what I say. But I will hopefully help hold it off for as long as possible. Sorry to the DVD market though as I have no wish to buy one of those ever again, this includes Blu-Ray

This is actually cringe-worthy news. Nintendo moves at their own pace. The reason why so many love Nintendo is because for better or worse, they do things how they want to do them and their integrity should always be respected - even if you disagree. They were the slowest to adopt disc-based media, digital media, online gaming, DLC, and other standard practices. They were also the last to adopt the software price hike, console price hike, paid online services, and other things. So for better or worse, trying to push Nintendo in a certain direction is not going to work for either company. This is not the move, in my opinion.

So Nintendo games on PC confirmed?



Sometimes I think there' a portion of Nintendo's fanbase that's a bit crazy.

Neurotic fan: Give us Virtual console Netflix!
Investment Firm X: We agree, and will help Nintendo build it into one of the most powerful platforms in the world.
Same neurotic fan: What? WHY? Nintendo is DOOMED.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Offering ALSO digital is good, going FULLY digital is a completely different thing. Unless it's digital GOG way, in that case owning a digital copy allows anybody wanting it to make a fully working backup copy. That kind of digital is even better than buying physical for the pros physical has and also other digital services, for the pros digital has, but I don't expect console makers to turn their digital services into GOG-like ones.

heh, accidentally read that as "Valve has bought $1.1 billion worth of Nintendo stock".

Now that would be big news!
