@FragRed Probably the same strategy as Capcom used for RE Revelations collection, small games on the cart, big games are a digital download and for some reason digital only in Europe.

@Octane Wow that is crazy small, I was expecting them to be much larger. It will be interesting to see how well they sell.

My issue with Digital Distribution on Consoles is that it's a closed shop. On Consoles it's not possible and without retail driving prices down, Nintendo (and Sony and MS) can charge what they want.

To be fair there is still competition. If one of the big three went out on a limb by themselves and started charging obscene fees for their games? Third party publishers would start pulling the pin. Equally if one publisher started charging over and above the price that other publishers are charging? Consumers would buy something else.

But to be fairer, they have an oligopoly instead of an monopoly. Which can be as bad as a monopoly. They will only ever have competition if they chose to do so. If they all just have the prices fixed at a high rate, they can pretend to be competing while gaining every single benefit of a monopoly.

@Therad Isn't that already happening? Digital prices in Europe went up this year from €60 to €70. Physical is still €60, but the competition drives down those prices even further, meaning physical games are often less than €55 on release.

I think @electrolite77 has a point though. Ubisoft is the only distributor of Assassin's Creed: Origins on the digital console stores, yet there are many different sellers in the physical market. In the digital space, Ubisoft doesn't have anyone to compete with for the sales of Assassin's Creed: Origins.

If Soul Calibur VI comes to Switch, I expect an FE guest fighter. Maybe Link as well.

@Octane So how are those "three big exclusives"? Are they counting the individual games in the Xenosaga trilogy as those three games, perhaps? I suppose it's possible they'll be revealed later on

@IceClimbers Did they say they had 3 exclusives for Switch?

I know Soul Calibur was rumoured to be a PSX reveal a while back, so that's definitely PS4.

Don't see why the Dark Souls trilogy would skip the other consoles, but it could be a Switch exclusive. Xenosaga were PS2 games, so I doubt it's a Switch exclusive... To be fair, all of them sound more like multiplats, with the exception of Soul Calibur 6.

Xenosaga Collection!? I always wanted to play those games, I'd scoop that up in a heartbeat. I can't wait for new announcements to come in January...

I bet the Xenosaga collection will be PS4 console exclusive, like the .hack//G.U. collection was.

I dont expect anything for Switch at either the alleged Bandai event nor the Megaman one today.

Not with how things have gone in the past regarding Megaman and Nintendo systems apart from Smash, and if Switch is mentioned by Bandai, itll be asking us for a show of support that we want the game (See: free marketing for other systems) that will lead nowhere.

Oh right, I forgot to say, Smash is not one of the games rumoured to be revealed at the Bandai Namco event, but that's not a surprise I think.

@YummyHappyPills When is the Megaman thingy?

@Octane Dunno. Dont care. 2pm ET or something.

If its for something, cool. If its not, I lose no sleep.

@YummyHappyPills The difference this time though is NoA retweeted Capcoms tweet. Take that for what it is though.

@Spoony_Tech This is also Capcom.

Capcom.

History has a big list of things to use as evidence here.

Plus Im in the EU so if by some miracle there is a game, itll be download only, if we are lucky enough to get it at all

I'd love a Mega Man Anniversary Collection compilation for Switch, but I'm not expecting anything.

Soul Calibur 6 for Switch would make me so very happy. I just can't imagine it being a Switch exclusive though.For it to be a great fighter on Switch it needs to be an exclusive, not a visually downgraded port that doesn't run as well. Hopefully Nintendo have done some sort of deal with Bandai, like they done with Platinum for Bayonetta 2. Now that would be huge news and exactly the kind of game the online subscription needs.

I've never played any Dark Souls games but I would like to .Having the Trilogy on Switch would be so good.

As for Capcom, with Nintendo retweeting them there will definitely be something for us. A MyNintendo wallpaper perhaps.

All 8 Mega Man X games? Nice! Wonder if it's a collection or individual releases
