Speculation = actual expectations!

Honestly, you can nitpick rumours not coming to fruitation, but its fun to speculate, especially with many third parties coming around their usual stance thanks to the Switch and its success.

I mean, the Witcher 3 rumour seems bogus to me, but an Assassin’s Creed Collection wouldn’t surprise me at all. Considering the collections and remasters that were released on the system it does not seem far fetched to me.

@MsJubilee Let's keep it friendly, OK?

@FragRed Yeah, they're already avoiding the 32GB cards, so I don't see why a 64GB card would change that. The only thing we can hope for is a price cut for the lower capacity cards. 64 could become the new 32, but even then they'll most likely stick to partial downloads. I love to be wrong though!

FragRed

@Octane I think there was an article on Nintendo Life from earlier this year where publishers stated they wanted the lower capacity cards to reduce in price. But it’s certainly more about reducing costs than anything else. I mean just look at how Activision sold Spyro on the PS4 & Xbox One, and Blu-Rays are cheap enough as it is to produce.

@FragRed I think Spyro was more a case of 2 and 3 not being finished yet and therefore not on disc, than deliberately leaving them off to save costs. I mean, they delayed the game very short before release, the game had problably gone gold already. So it seems to be that it was always their plan to ship the first game on disc and finish 2 and 3 in the last two months before release. It's impossible to know of course, but it felt a bit like a rush job to me. Jumping on the Crash remake bandwagon when people were still excited.

64GB carts aren't going to bring in larger (as in download size) games either because there's still the reality that Switch owners can't buy the game digitally without a microSD card.

Not even the largest games on the other systems like Halo 5, Gears 4, Modern Warfare Remastered, RDR2, etc. are large enough to fill up the entire internal drive with 1 game irrelevant of the console model.

@Grumblevolcano You probably cannot buy a 32GB game without an SD card either, doesn't stop Nintendo from selling 32GB cards though.

@Octane As far as I can tell, 32GB cart has been used only once (DQ Heroes 1+2 in Japan) and while I don't know for certain I doubt the digital size is larger than the Switch's internal storage.

Does Smash use 16gb cards then?

Probably, as far as I know, smash is not a huge game.

Yeah I don’t know either.

You know, I'd completely forgotten about it, but I just remembered that Divinity: Original Sin 2 is supposedly hitting the Switch in 2019. I really hope it's a good port, as I've heard some amazing things about the game.

@Ralizah Wait..what? For real? Did someone actually announce that at one point? Seems like a big deal but I can't remember seeing anything about that.

What a beautiful signature.

@Tsurii Larian Studios mentioned it in September I think but they never gave an ETA. Either way it will be a good fit for the system. I'm hoping it will be a summer release for the slow months.

EDIT: Make that may that they mentioned it.

I remember hearing something about Divinity, but I wasn’t sure if it was official or not. I figured if it was I would hear something down the line eventually. Hope they get it looking good like Diablo 3. Same for Pillars of Eternity,

I’m excited to see some of the games announced this coming year. 2018 was pretty good in terms of 3rd party, especially given where we were in 2017. Next year should be even better.

@Ryu_Niiyama ohh, much excite. Careful excite but still excite lel

Hope they manage to pull that port off. Very interested in the game but I'm not playing anything on PC and basically done with my ps4 as well (maybe I'll squeeze in that P5 plat but with certain rumors lately I've been waiting for tomorrow instead of playing more of that game)

How are you done with platforms? You don't have a backlog? Can you help me beat mine?

Also trying to stick to my budget and not buy DQ builders 2....soooo hard.

@Tsurii They dont reply. Like 90% of folk here Im on their ignore list.

Basically people dont like Im not as high hopes into rumours and the such as other people are.

I suppose after the NX hype, constant "Next Direct" hype, leaks, rumours, clickbait YouTube thumbnails.... I just got tired of it.

Thats just it. Im tired of this never ending cycle of needing to be hyped. XD

If Persona 5 or any other rumoured game does get released, the most I'll likely do is agree that yes it is indeed neat.

@Ryu_Niiyama I didn't buy too much stuff on PS4. Most of the 1st party games I played got played at a friend's place and what little I bought was mostly stuff I knew I'd enjoy and play in one swoop (excluding Witcher 3 because I was super tired of walking around Novigrad(?) after 3 or 4 hours. I do want to get back to it eventually tho)
And I'm not really interested in anything going forward. Maybe Sekiro, if the trailers/info we get before release look good to me. Came to dislike Souls and Bloodborne pissed me off within less than 2 hours and made me hate everyone who told it totally doesn't play like Souls and how it's totally got one of the most interesting game worlds they've explored 🙄

So.. I still have a little bit of Spyro left, and will likely go back to that a lot in the future, I still got Witcher 3 and I'm waiting before I continue my NG+ run of Persona 5 because i actually want a Platinum Trophy for once (it helps, of course, that P5's trophies all make for some interesting challenges or just get cleared by things I would've doen anyway in a Megaten game)
But that's pretty much it save for some potential late surprises.

Way too much stuff I bought lately on Switch anyway tho. I'm getting too many long games haha

@Tsurii I guess the release date wasn't announced. 2019 seems like a safe bet, though. If the port is high-quality, it'll be a great addition to the library. Apparently it's stellar and extremely replayable.

@Knuckles-Fajita I don't mind rumors. What irritates me is when Nintendo fans get into a frenzy over some unsubstantiated rumor and then, when it turns out not to be true, they get angry and disappointed. It'll happen the same way again if Persona 5: R isn't a Switch game.

@Knuckles-Fajita I’m finally in a tenth percentile again!! I still heart you.
