Official Nintendo Switch Thread


Recommended Posts

 
Mobiles also release newer models, with far better specs every year. You want to follow that? Imagine what havoc it will play on both devs and customers.
 
Anyway the point really is moot. New 3DS was a one-off. And it was not well received at all. There are barely any games that are "Full exclusive" to the new 3ds, and almost all received Switch ports because Nintendo and other devs wanted people to actually play and experience those games. Same happened with the Wii U - which was a decently powerful console for it's time. It flopped so hard that almost all Wii U games have received Switch ports, so at least some people would play the game. Nintendo is out of the high graphics game - precisely because historically they have flopped hard (except the freak Wii with it's Wii Sports).  
 
There really is no point in a Switch Pro. Existing Switch owners are very happy with the current Switch. Heck, even new adopters and buyers are happy.
 
The entire fiasco is the fault of the so called "Insiders". Nintendo equivalent of Xbox's Jeff Grubb. These so called "Insiders" have been screaming "A New Switch Pro" before almost all Nintendo Directs since 2019 at least. This has led to confusion among a lot of new buyers as to whether there really was a new model or not. With many sales being lost as people decided to wait for the so called "Pro" Version, and what if it was the same price as the original Switch. 
 
I would not be surprised if the OLED model is to get these "Insiders' and career rumor mongers to shut up. Another example why these "Insiders" are harmful to the industry. No wonder Sony went after them.

Thanks for the example. If I remember right, there were a lot of these kinds of people. I remember there were some people even here who were interested in Switch since past 2 years, and then decided to wait on the Switch Pro - which has never even left the rumor mill till now.

I expect Nintendo to release more, new first party titles now. I had expected a Zelda anniversary collection, but they are charging $60 for skyward sword alone. They could have given us atleast 2 Zelda remastered games for that price. 

 

This is a valid criticism of Nintendo. They do milk their franchises like crazy. I was surprised when SM3D left out SMG2, and most likely the port will be charged at full price. 

Either that, or they will make you wait and release an SMG2 port on the new console for full price, and we will lap it up.

Was there enough space in the cart for 4 full 3d mario titles?

Sometimes, SMO will bore me into a nap. Sometimes, it’s hard to put down. Prefer playing it on handheld, and the magic is real. Mario is forever. Convinced that Nintendo has a crack team of “dreamers” who are perpetually high. Some of the 2D sections in mushroom kingdom cannot be thought of when sober. I refuse to believe so :P

Waiting for a proper Zelda special edition. Nintendo is not giving any special attention to Zelda for some reason. Hopefully they would launch one with this OLED screen, would give me an excuse to get this version

 

 

Ps- I think Nintendo should sell just the OLED tablet as well. As joycons are interchangeable, the tablet alone would sell like hot cakes. (Might end up canibalizing sales of the console though). But hey, jisko lena hoga, vo toh lega hi.
