21JaxonHSat 18th Feb 2017 The reason I feel it's different is because, while Wii U started out strong with multiple AAA ports, it immediately fizzled out. It got CoD and AC the next Christmas, a couple Ubisoft ports with Splinter Cell and Watch Dogs (eventually), but that's it. Basically, heavy on the front end. With Switch, it looks like it'll be the opposite. Light on the front end, with a gradual build up of AAA. Skyrim, FIFA and NBA2K will just be the beginning, I believe. Seeing Bethesda and FromSoftware get on board, not to mention Capcom's recent statement about wanting to develop AAA for Switch now that they realize it's not touch only (dev kit didn't include Joycons I guess), and recent leaks of Assassins Creed and, LA Noire coming which confirms Rockstar... it's nearly impossible to see the two as being similar. http://nintendoeverything.com/switch-dev-talk-50000-yen-for-a... Especially given the fact Capcom stated what took 5 people 3 months on Wii U to port, and 4 people 4 months on 3DS to port, they were able to port to Switch with just 2 people in 1 month. That's 800% faster porting. That is why I believe that while Wii U was heavy on the front end, Switch will see a gradual buildup. It's not going to have anywhere near the games the other consoles get... it just won't. But I think it'll get better third party games than Wii U did, and more even support throughout its lifespan. At the end of the day though, you need to like Nintendo games to buy a Nintendo console. Just like you need to enjoy AAA games if you buy an Xbox One. People don't say "just buy another console for AAA" to defend not having them, they say it in response to reality as it is. The western AAA market has shifted to other consoles and whether we like it or not, that's just the way things are. If you want the best of both worlds you're going to have to buy the best of both consoles. If you're totally OK never playing Nintendo exclusives or never playing select third party games on the go, you don't need a Switch. You could buy a PS4/X1 and make due. Likewise, if you're totally ok never playing the bulk of western AAA games, you don't need a PS4/X1. You could just buy a Switch and make due. It's all about what you want, but it's important to acknowledge that each console does have something to offer, it's just something different being offered by Switch vs PS4/X1 Edited on Sat 18th February, 2017 @ 16:25 by JaxonH PLAYING NS: Warioware, Cruis'n Blast, Ni No Kuni 2 3DS: Metroid Samus Returns Steam: Horizon Zero Dawn, Deathloop, Tales of Arise PS5: Spiderman, Ghosts of Tsushima MOST EXCITED FOR NS: Metroid Dread, Monkey Ball, SMTV Jesus is Lord.
