2018 isn't even here yet, so of course the line-up so far looks sparse. Nintendo is notorious for "playing-things-close-to-the-chest", so they really only announce games when they're near completion/shipping (With the exception of the occasional e3 game, of course). Remember that Nintendo Direct a few months back that revealed TONS of games coming to switch (Like Doom, Wolfenstein 2, Rocket League deets, Payday 2, etc.)? Just wait and see. It'd be mighty impulsive and foolish to sell a brand new console just because you don't know what it's 2nd year of life and games roster will look like (Though with total Switch sales at over 10+ million this early, I can promise you we'll see even more games in 2018 than we did with 2017, with all the 3rd parties who sat out this year being eager to hop onto the Switch hype train for 2018).

Your choice though

U NO LIKE PROJECT OCTOPATH TRAVELER? DX

Seriously though, that game is my most hyped game of 2018.
Pokemon could be coming out in 2018 too.
Anyway, what @Dang3rdomo22 said is very true.

@h_4s Switch is less than a year old. PS4/X1 is over 4 years old and have a 4+ year old library size to match (and always have more total games than Nintendo platforms due to their 3rd party emphasis.)

The big question is: Why did you buy a new console if what you wanted was a large library that comes with an old console? The talk in PS4 threads is "when is PS5 coming?"

We don't know the 2018 lineup yet. We didn't know the 2017 lineup until mid January, and even then we only found out a few key titles for half the library we actually have. We know SMTV is coming, probably next year. Metroid probably isn't, but Pokemon might. There are certainly going to be other big hitters we don't know about yet. Holiday 2018 is usually not announced until E3.

OTOH if you're saying that what you really prefer is a a primarily online platform, then yeah, even over PS4, XBox One is where you want to be. Nintendo doesn't overly focus on online. Playstation increasingly does, but it's online infrastructure is still mediocre at best and their story focused games are their main selling point. XBox is the brand that's focused primarily on an all online/cloud experience, trying to be more like PC. So if that's what you want, that's the product you're looking for. It has VERY few platform exclusive games however, almost everything is just multiplat on PC and PS4 (and in some cases Switch) as well.

I can't wait for 2018 (although I wish we could insert another month after December so that I can finish a couple more games...)

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.

I don't understand this compulsion to buy a new console and then sell it as soon as you complete a game or two.

I mean, it's your stuff, so you can do what you want, but I can almost guarantee you'll regret it in a few months when games you want are being announced for it. I've seen this happen a million times. People like you will purchase and sell the same console five or six times in its lifetime.

@Ralizah A friend of mine buys a console whenever he wants to play a game, and he sells everything after he's done. He already went through several PS4s and a Switch.

Whatever you do, mate, don‘t buy a Xbox, unless true 4K resolution is that important to you.

So you‘re a throw the baby out with the bath water kinda guy, huh? Nintendo‘s never been like Sony or MS, who announce their stuff years in advance only to delay them again and again. They announce games pretty close to the actual release so you‘ll have to be patient and see if there‘s something that strikes your fancy.

But if you‘re really that keen on selling it for a quick buck, be my guest! Seriously, though, hands off of that Xbox.

@Octane That's just weird. Is it at such great savings that it's worthwhile? I can't imagine he's not spending fortunes cycling consoles rather than just sticking it in the closet until he needs it again?

@GoldenGamer88 Bad XBox experience? I had a 360, but haven't touched a One (nothing appeals to me slightly about it though the X is a nice piece of kit...I'd probably build a PC again before getting what is really a PC anyway with all the problems inclusive), but I'd think if online was someone's focus that's the platform to get into. Its online is the one thing it DOES have going for it. (Games on the other hand are not...)

@NEStalgia I know he sold the Switch at a profit. But you're right, he's probably losing money in the long run. He knows it too, but I guess he doesn't care.

@Octane People like that just baffle me. It would be like buying and selling a blu-ray player every time a new movie you want to see releases.

@NEStalgia Some of my favorite games are for X360 and only for X360 (unless you count the backwards compability on XOne). XOne, however, well, both the old and new home menu navigation is just ... ugh ... worse than navigating the PS Store and that on its own is a nightmare. Plus, what games does it have that PS4 or PC don’t have? I‘d rather buy or build a Gaming PC than buy a XOne. PS4 is clearly the better option due to its exclusives library

@h_4s keep your switch and buy a PS4. Everyone wins

I agree with the comment above. Keep your switch then save up for a ps4. It's pretty much the best combo right now. You get the amazing first party exclusives from both Nintendo and Sony, you get majority of the big 3rd party releases and indie games as well. Really the best of both worlds imo.

Most people here are a bit fanboyish. Here’s what you should do:

Sell your Switch and get a PS4. The PS4 is literally the place to be this generation. Just keep in mind you’ll need a PS+ subscription to play online. You seem like the person that would enjoy Fortnite, Friday the 13th, Black Ops 3, WW2, Star Wars Battlefront, Battlefield, and more. All these games heavily rely on online multiplayer with a massive player base. You can even voice chat to cooperate with other people you meet by just using your PS4 since it comes with a free mic!

By the time you’ll want your Switch back there will be a newer and cheaper version called the New Switch Lite i.

I'd say at least wait until the paid online service is active before deciding whether to sell the Switch. How Nintendo approaches that service will give you a good idea of what to expect.

@h_4s Depends on your finances.
Personally I'd never trade in hardware. For someone that plays the majority of third party games on PS4 and is only interested in some of Nintendo's first party games, I too have nothing to really play until Bayonetta 1+2.
2018 looks like the best year yet for PS4. If you're a new owner you've got an incredible game library at your disposal at incredible prices.

I've always thought the Switch of as an excellent complimentary secondary gaming device, but it can't really replace the core gaming experience my PS4 provides.
Honestly you should probably have bought a Pro over Black Friday-Christmas period if you were interested. They were some insane deals available, which I think are all but gone now.

If money is an issue and you're not really happy with your Switch, then sell it. Personally unless you can find a crazy good deal for a Pro, I'd wait a year- especially if money is a issue.

I remember Sony did a deal where you could get a Pro and 5 new games for less than Xbox One X. I'd wait for something like this to pop up again.

Save up, buy a PS4 or XB1 in the January sales and have the best of both worlds!
