Never played any of the Primes so really hoping the trilogy sees a release on Switch.

@bixente Same, I missed out on almost every GCN game since my family never used the purple lunchbox and we have only used the BC to play GCN games about five times in total.

Tales of Vesperia on anyone's radar? Bandai-Namco has revealed how the game will perform across the board.

720p/1080p on Switch (undocked vs. docked, obvs). 60fps in battle, 30fps everywhere else, which seems to be how it ran on the PS3 as well. Interestingly, the Xbox One version's performance has the same targets as docked Switch, although I wouldn't be surprised if it's more stable.

PS4 is 60fps across the board.

@Ralizah Already pre-ordered on Switch. Those targets are really weird that it's 60fps on base PS4, but 30FPS outside battle on X1.....considering it's an updated rerelease of a game made for the X360! Why would it run better on PS4 than the (more powerful) version of the console it was made for to begin with? Maybe on 1X it runs 60fps, but I can't imagine why 1S wouldn't either, unless they're locking it to the OG X1 for unknown reasons. It's not exactly RDR2.

@NEStalgia I imagine it wasn't optimized at all for the Xbox One in order to minimize costs associated with what will undoubtedly be the worst-selling version of the game. It also doesn't seem to feature enhancements for the Pro or One X.

Glad it's confirmed to be 720p in handheld mode. Those colorful anime visuals running at native resolution are going to look BEAUTIFUL.

60fps only in battle is perfectly fine by me. Overworld and menu stuff is perfectly fine at 30fps.

I like my action games at 60fps.

@NEStalgia The Xbox 360's PowerPC vs the XB1's x86 is why. The game was originally optimized for a different architecture entirely. As both PS4 and XB1 are x86, they probably ported it to x86 and did the bare minimum to get it running on XB1. (Yes I'm aware this is a massive simplification)

@Ralizah But what's weird is it was an X360 exclusive at the start, then went PS3 in Japan later, as a port. And then they unveiled the game at the XBox show at E3, despite it not being a priority platform? Just a weird circumstance all the way around.

@link3710 Yes and no, PPC is a lot more compatible with x86 than the weird PS3 cell....so any port work would have started from the 360 or PC versions, not the PS3 version, and thus would have been DirectX based to begin with. If they did bare minimum you'd think the X1 would come out ahead, and Switch would be the worst (PPC to ARM.) It seems more like they did extra work on the PS4 version in general (but unveiled the game at the XBox show.....) I know the series overall is mostly associated with PS and Vesperia being a 360 game was odd. But why not announce at Sony's show, then? It's not like they had a glut of content, it would have been great filler during the odd press walkabout instead of Shaun Layden in the press box playing with the $200 Scuff Vantage.

Of course Switch is the only version that matters....

@NEStalgia Pffft and here I was hoping the simplification talk would handle that. All I was trying to say is that the PS4 and XB1 would have both been ported the same way, so XB1 didn't have any natural advantage over PS4 due to it being a 360 game. But yes, I agree with the rest of your points.

There's a Game Awards sale on the eshop for nominated games and more.

Xenoblade 2 being included is interesting given it hasn't had any Game Awards presence outside of 1 very short trailer last year.

@Grumblevolcano Makes me wonder. TGA would be an amazing place to announce Monolith's new IP / XC3/ XCX2.

Hey, anyone here noticing Fortnite’s icon on the home screen isn’t updating to Season 7? It’s not a big issue game-wise but it kinda bugs me...

Switch lover, EDM lover. What more do you need?
