2) The switch 2 will be a ps4 and that is a huge jump for Nintendo. Day 1 here. The ps5 stuff is nonsense.
I feel there's a bit of bad faith arguing going on here. Can you link to specific quotes made in this thread that say Switch 2 will be equivalent to PS5?
What I can see is people arguing that it'll be capable enough to run many current gen games with compromises, whether those compromises are deemed worthwhile, remains to be seen. The compromises made on Steam Deck seem acceptable to many owners of that system.
Also, 'The switch 2 will be a ps4 and that is a huge jump for Nintendo. Day 1 here. The ps5 stuff is nonsense.', where are you getting this info? DF's best guess has it pegged significantly more capable than PS4, what do you know that they/we don't?
Making a statement like that with that kind of certainty is just silly, we don't even know what node the thing will be manufactured on, which in itself will have a big impact on performance. Who knows, you may end up being correct, but that'll be out of sheer luck as we simply do not have enough info to make that call now.
Something like this?
"I guess you missed the part where they shocased unreal 5 engine demo similar to what what shown for ps5. That cannot run on ps4/ps4 pro specs. It will also have a current gen based cpu, which is much more powerful than last gen, along with a much bettter cpu."
I mean, that same user posted this directly prior;
'I'm hoping they go back to the glory days. A power house , ps5 pro specs, and huge 3rd party multiplat support.'
So I'd say there's a solid chance that he's posting tongue in cheek...
Even if we take it seriously, like Vodacixi pointed out, 'similar' does not mean 'equivalent'. And he's talking about the demo, not the systems. Could a lower-res, lower fps version of the demo be classed as 'similar', I'd suggest so, though you'd have to clarify with that user if that's what he meant.
Bottom line is that you have to do some serious contortions to interpret that comment seriously as S2 = PS5.
It's this type of straw-manning that ends up with these threads turning into 30 page bickers.
