Technically that's an ES game, but I mean a game from the main series.

I actually have Elder Scrolls Online, and it just feels kinda bland compared to games from the main series. It's a good MMO, but still an MMO nonetheless, and I don't really like MMOs. For people that do though, it's a great game.

I'm afraid this game is not going to sell well in the slightest. It has no chance. First, it's old; it's been out since 2011. Most people that wanted to play it already played it for PC, PS3 or 360. Second, it just got re-released; just a few weeks ago. So the people who wanted to play the Enhanced Edition already bought it again. For PC, PS4, and XBO.

You're telling me people are going to wait until Fall 2017 to get a game that they could have already gotten in 6 different iterations? No.

I'm not really sure what Bethesda is thinking, but I can tell you what they're NOT thinking, and that's "The best way to get Skyrim Enhanced Edition to sell well on the Switch."

@crimsoncavalier I don't think we should underestimate the portability angle for this game. I didn't think the remastered version would sell as well as it has to PS4 and Xbone owners, after all the game came out in 2011. I think that between the Nintendo only crowd, the double dippers (that would be me), and the "IT'S PORTABLE SKYRIM" crowd they should get some decent sales. Hopefully enough that we get TES: VI.

@Ryu_Niiyama: Well said. I'm in the Nintendo-only crowd (partially because I love many Nintendo IPs, partially due to time constraints; I would love a PS4) and the "It's portable Skyrim!" crowd myself.

I'm not banking on Skyrim being a sellout success on the Switch, but I'm fairly certain it will do reasonably well.

My brother has a PS4 but is waiting to get this game because of the portability. He skipped out on a Wii U because he just wasn't interested. He's still a Nintendo fan but felt left out last gen. This is the crowd Nintendo wants back so we need more games like this. Who here wouldn't want a Bio-Shock collection on the Switch?!

@Spoony_Tech Yep I missed getting this game on the PS4 or Xbox One, even when on sale, simply due to the idea of being able to play the game on the go!

They're probably thinking "we've never really seen how much Nintendo fans like our games". Lets find out in as cheap a way as possible.

My guess is that it will give the same result as "How much do Nintendo fans like Mass Effect and Assassin's Creed?" (i.e not much)

Converted from Sony to Nintendo during 7th gen and never looked back.

the numbers I made up for how Skyrim might sell on Switch is probably around the sales for a top-tier popular VC title on even Wii U.

Add me to the "portable Skyrim" crowd. I already own the game on PC, but my laptop can't run it so having it on my Switch for playing away from home is enough to convince me to double-dip.

I think there's a big difference with Skyrim on Switch and Mass Effect and Assassins Creed on Wii U (aside from shoddy ports and missing the marketing boat). That difference is Zelda BoTW.

That game is huge and it will build, from day 1, a big audience for similar types of game. A lot of people will buy the Switch for Zelda BoTW, play it, finish it and then look around for something similar because they are people who find big open world fantasy RPGs appealing. So Zelda brings the audience that makes it possible for Skyrim to be a success on Switch.

Plus big time sink RPGs are a perfect fit for handhelds.

@StuTwo
You're right, and maybe that's the reason why they pushed Skyrim out of the launch window. When it comes out, they'll promote it as continuing the open world experience for people that liked Zelda's design.

I have a chronic lack of time, for everything.

Skyrim is already way better promoted then those games' Wii U ports tbh. Probably because it's not involved with Wii U's pre-release marketing.

@crimsoncavalier
You have a point, and for all I know you could be right.

But I think the sales are going to come from A Nintendo fans who don't own other consoles or usually play other games, due to Zelda turning them on to the idea of open world RPG, and B gamers who have already played Skyrim but love the game to death, and either want it portably and/or don't own any new consoles yet and will choose Switch simply because it's a cool system and Skyrim will offer them their favorite game to relive, both at home and on the go

Now granted this is not based on any real scientific data or study or anything of that nature. But I have a coworker and he doesn't own any consoles, at this point. He was saving up to buy a PS4 because he wanted to play the Skyrim game remastered for it. But is soon as he heard it was coming to Switch he held off, and waited until he got confirmation the game was actually going to come. As soon as the presentation aired he pre-ordered the system at GameStop the next day. They told him it wouldn't be out until late summer or fall but he was OK with that, because Zelda was a launch game and he said as long as he knows the game is coming out soon that's fine with him.

No he might just be an anomaly or it could be coincidence, my brother also was talking about owning the system just for this game on the go. And I've talk to at least one or two others on the Internet who have said the same thing. I've heard more non-Nintendo gamers (or gamers who don't prioritize Nintendo) talk about buying the system for Skyrim then I have heard them talk about buying it for Zelda. Which in my opinion I think Zelda is going to be the better game but I understand what it's like when you're in love with a game. And when it comes to Skyrim there are tens of millions of people who are in love with the game. If even just a small portion of those people were willing to buy the system to get their favorite game on the go (or a combination of that and replaying it- A lot of people might've played last generation or on PC who don't yet own a current gen console), it could really bolster year one sales and help grow the base during this early time when it's really crucial.

Of course I could be completely off with this. But I'll definitely be buying it, and I really hope it succeeds but if it doesn't, I'm just glad that we got this game. No matter what happens we will always have Zelda and Skyrim to play on the go, and that's pretty awesome

@JaxonH maybe you can get sales from console skyrim fans but i doubt die hard skyrim fans would be interested die to one reason: mod support. You cabt be a die hard skyrim fan playing on the PC without using extensive mods soni doubt they will sacrifice that just for portability

@diwdiws
Maybe. Idk, I have a PC. And an Xbox One with full mod support. Yet I'm buying it for portability.

Someone was saying it would have mod support though... Probably have to wait for more details. I'd be shocked if it didn't though, at the very least like how PS does it.
