Valiant Hearts: The Great War

Don't skip out on this one people. What a great game. I think it was on Wii U as well, not sure, but it's an excellent, emotional game you won't regret experiencing. UbiArt engine like Child of Light. And probably the best UbiArt game they released barring Rayman. It looks phenomenal on the handheld screen. If I didn't know the screen was 720p I would actually believe it was 1080p. It looks that good.

Also, full touchscreen support, for those who are interested. Personally I think it plays better just using the controls but I know some people always prefer alternatives. One more thing- I'm not sure if this was in the original version, but for all the historical facts that show you a real picture from WW1, you can press A to magnify the text which makes it super easy to read in handheld. This game just works incredibly well on Switch. I seriously cannot find fault in it in any way.

@Ryu_Niiyama
It's clear to me EA simply doesn't want to deal with Nintendo. They only put FIFA out so they can tell their shareholders they're "supporting" the system in some capacity. But the truth is they want easy money, and the easy money is with big AAA games with shiny graphics that can be used as a Trojan horse to mandate online as DRM and profit from exorbitant micro transactions.

@JaxonH I think their contract with FIFA demands them to support every system with at least one game. That's probably why we got 18 in the first place; I expect they'll release that game every year with a new number, it's hardly any effort for them.

^hmm not sure why I didn't consider a contract being the reason for the FIFA support. Geez that thought makes it worse.

What about The Sims 4 ?
EA keep milking The Sims 4 franchise for PC, PS4 & Xbox1 users but still NO Chance for Switch player to enjoy The Sims 4 on Nintendo Switch.
EA just only care about FIFA , but NEGLECT the existence of The Sims 4 for Switch.

My Top 5 games :
1. Dance Dance Revolution series (10 / 10)
2. The Sims series (9 / 10)
3. Portal Knights Switch (9 / 10)
4. Animal Crossing New Leaf 3DS (9 / 10)
5. ARMS (8 / 10)

I just don't understand with EA.
Long time ago, when The Sims games were really popular, Nintendo always got the series.
During Wii & NDS era, EA collaborated with Nintendo in My Sims games until My Sims Sky Heroes. The Sims 3 Pets was the LAST The Sims series for Nintendo.
It was so UNFAIR when PS4 & Xbox1 got The Sims 4 (And the DLCs + Expansion packs through online payments) while Switch DIDN'T get any chance.
EA said that they had NO Plan to release The Sims 4 for Switch.
Of course they can said like that because they ONLY care with FIFA Too Much, Abandoned other franchises.

I didn't see where in the page you linked that there's any involvement with Nintendo, much less a "Project Super NX" (Super Switch as you put it)
I'd love to find out more about the possible next gen Switch, where can I find out more ???

It was a supposition, not a statement. I personally think that Niagara couldn't be really effective on the actual hardware. Maybe I'm wrong but that's the way I see it.

@JaxonH Valiant Hearts was an amazing game. I think I got it through Games With Gold on XBL.

I wouldn't mind seeing an upgraded Switch, but NOT until 2021, even then, I (personally) don't want it bigger or smaller, I like it as is size & shape wise, fixing the dust covers ffor the sticks and Bluetooth access is a must, I think some 4k graphics is a lot gluttonous, 1080p for the screen sure, 3.xGHz Quad processor, great, 16GB ram, awesome, and 256GB storage, it is realistic and could keep it under $400

it would give the game companies the ability to port anything on Sony and Microsoft over, able to make even greater games and could put Nintendo back over the top, instead of just skimming around the same line of their competitors

but that's just me

Knowing Nintendo, the Switch 2.0 will be just an upgraded version but in small proportions.
You talk about 16Gb RAM, let me tell you already that it's impossible with Nintendo.
6Gb or 8Gb at the max but 16 no way.

Sony and MS have monsters on the way and third party multiplatform games are gonna stop on Switch in no time.

The only solution for Nintendo is to have a brand new "only home console" to compete with the others if they want to get the next multiplatform games.

@Nemodius Hey at least he provided a link to the source of his supposition

Switch - Smash Ultimate, Mario Kart 8D, NES Online (Dr. Mario only)
3DS -
PC - The Witcher 3, Nier: Automata, Mortal Kombat XL

@subpopz
that was a link to what he hoped they used, not evidentiary, and I felt me data spoke realistically for itself, which you ended up pulling up the same data and proving my point, except my accidentally leaving out the "$" in front of a number, causing an understandable misunderstanding

anyway, wasn't that like two days ago ???
why you lowering yourself to throwing shade bro ???

1080p for the screen

That's completely unrealistic. Aside from the fact the ppi for a 6" 720p screen is already incredibly dense, more so than a 1080p television 6 feet away, which means there's no real need for a higher resolution screen, there's the fact that rendering at 720p already pushes 2.5 - 3 hour battery life. Rendering at a resolution 2.25x that would destroy any semblance of battery life left on the system. And if they kept the same battery life then it means it would destroy the graphical fidelity and resolution instead, eliminating any gains from a more powerful system, and then some. It is completely counterintuitive to use a 1080p screen in a handheld gaming device. It's fine when your rendering Candy Crush, it's not fine when you're rendering current generation AAA games on a battery.

And just FYI, they're not going to cram in specs like that. Not even current generation home power consoles are doing 16gb RAM. Not even my PC-based $650 Win 2 gaming handheld is doing 16gb of RAM.

The fact is any hybrid system is going to have to make compromises (which means not getting every single game) as it plays a delicate balance among power, battery life and price, and the sooner people accept that the better. Sure, they can bump it up a bit, they can enlarge that envelope a little bit to where a few more games can run on the system that wouldn't otherwise run. But it's not going to be some monstrous jump.

And I don't think next generation consoles are anywhere close to releasing. Nobody is going to waste money on a next generation console unless its price is reasonable, and unless it offers something more than what we already have. And right now, what we have, costs $500 for the Xbox One X. Which means nobody is going to buy a next generation Xbox or PlayStation if it's not a considerable jump over that. And even if it is, they're not going to buy it unless it's a reasonable launch price (definitely no more than $500, preferably $400). And selling a console that's a considerable jump over the X1X for $400-500 (the same exact price the X1X is now) isn't going to happen for several years, maybe even half a decade. Until the X1X cost has come down to $250-300, it's not even feasible. The fact the X1X is $450-500 right now means that's the best they can offer for that much money. They're not going to magically be able to offer a console an entire generational leap beyond the X1X for the exact same price as of next year.

Which means we are years and years away. And tbh, after seeing Red Dead 2 on the X... I don't think we need next generation consoles for at least another five years anyways. What they're more likely to do, is just stop selling the base models after a period of time. Then slowly phase out games compatible with the base models.

Didn’t 1X just hit last year? Along with 1S shortly before it? I agree that I don’t thing PS5/Scarlet are coming out for at least 2 years. Anything short and they could risk fracturing their user base.
As far as Nintendo is concerned, we’ve already seen (and heard from them) that they are not in the business to build powerful competing spec boxes. They’ve long gotten away from that measuring contest, and for the most part have done well for it.

@JaxonH Holiday 2020 at the latest for next gen. Games like Red Dead 2 and MH World show how old the PS4 is getting and PS5 being on the market with XB1X rather than a next gen Xbox would mean another guaranteed victory for Sony so of course Microsoft will release a next gen Xbox around the same time as the PS5.

Posit: if you had the choice between three next gen systems, all having same processor capabilities, graphical capabilities, ram, storage, ect and each also having very similar user interface controllers, and no third party games are exclusive to any one system
the first all third party games look and play exactly the same between ALL platforms and the others remain the same format of console or hybrid....

The "Sony Box 5" $400 (console)
The "X Station Omega" $400 (console)
The "Nindietendo Switcheroo" $400 (hybrid)

remember this is only a curiosity thing, I obviously am bias towards Nintendo, but this question isn't for me
if you had all the to choose from, but one had the added bonus of act as console or portable, which would you prefer ???

just because a console is portable, does not mean it has to be used as a portable, so don't let any preferences against portables influence a vote against, so.....
realistically, it's not much of a contest save for one thing, first party games and are there enough first party games for the consoles versus the hybrid to make you decide against the hybrid ???

if I over complicated it, think of it like this......

PS 5 (console) & PS5 X (hybrid)
both systems are same price, both have exact same games, exact same hardware, games are exact same format (disk or cart is irrelevant to this question), both systems have same storage, basically EVERYTHING'S exactly the same except one is a hybrid

which would you get ???

@HobbitGamer
I think that's so contradictive to me when talking about Ultra Specs for Next gen machine.
Sony & Microsoft can build Ultra OMG Ultimate machine with 16 GB RAM, 120 fps support, 4K support, 100+ GB Game files, etc, but their games will NEVER attract me anymore if there are still tons of games i hated most.
Unless if there will be The Sims 5 on PS5 & NOT ported on Switch. But the chance for The Sims 5 to be exist on PC & consoles are very low in my opinion, based on what have EA done with their franchises.

Nintendo is ALWAYS able to deliver Cute and Kiddie games on their machines, even Switch now have Neko Tomo, Wakuwaku Sweets, Sumikko Gurashi, and upcoming "Nintendogs" games by Acclaim. Those games don't even require 4K, 16 GB RAM, etc. Just plain simple Family oriented games in Basic HD.

take it easy it's called "Wishful Thinking" for a reason, I wish for it

but as some very high $$$ tablets prove, it is possible to smash all that power into such a small pack, lots of them (that new Surface Pro 6 business i7 is way too cool), so smashing only 256 store, 16 ram & 3Ghz using less expensive (but still HQ) components makes a $400 Switch 2 realistic, I don't expect it, but know it's realistic

and I have seen 1080p screens as small as 3.5"
