If you are waiting for specs, then this is definitely not for you. :P

 

I am not expecting it to be on the same level as current-gen consoles in terms of specs. Just curious to know if it is capable enough to get a long-term support from third-party developers (games exclusively made for Nintendo Switch, timed or whatever). That was the actual intention of my post.

Almost guaranteed, no.

 

Third party support will almost certainly be limited to PS360 remasters, indie titles and the odd game here and there.

 

 

Actually because it's releasing mid-generation, it is likely to be more powerful that the PS4 and XBox One. But by the time PS5 releases whis will be far behind.

 

LOL not a flying chance in hell its more powerful than the PS4 Xbone.

lol its not going to be more powerful than PS4 etc given that its essentially a 6 inch tablet. Heck even the leaked specs are too much for that form factor.

3 times powerful GPU and a billion times powerful CPU.

 

Its rumored spec tho, probably bullshit.

It will carve out its own install base or double up with home consoles like how people owned PS360 with a DS back in the day. All depends upon the price though, like always.

 

 

 

I dont think so. Its almost guaranteed to be marketed at a different audience. I mean it might sell VERY well but its not gonna eat a chunk out of the FIFA/COD/BF audience. Those guys arent gonna bother with this (even comments in this thread is a good example of that).

 

Then there is third party support. I would downright shocked if it gets more than 10-20% current gen third party games, simply because I doubt a portable system is capable of running those games, no matter how well Nintendo rebuild their bridges. I mean its telling when they show off Skyrim instead of Fallout 4.

 

But yeah, this being a 3DS successor is definitely more exciting if you are a Nintendo fan. Getting games from two Nintendo systems in one place is pretty huge. Not just because it means more games for you but because all their teams can now focus on one HW instead of being split between the 3DS and WiiU.

 

 

Wii you did the same thing...it first created new install base and then started impacting ps3 and 360....People here might give no.s of ps3 and xbox sold but that was because they were longest running console generation and wii was not a long run horse but in half of the 5 years ....the charts were crazy wii always sold more than 2-3 times of ps3 and xbox.

It is BS. It's powered by an Nvidia Tegra. https://blogs.nvidia.com/blog/2016/10/20/nintendo-switch/

As long as there is an adequate amount of variety in exclusives, I'll be happy!

 

NDS was the last Nintendo handheld device I ever owned (a gift from my aunt actually). Sadly, it died within a week and replacing the batteries didn't do it. :-( My father later bought me a PSP lol :P

Thing is though, there is nothing to suggest that Wii took out a chunk of the PS360 consumers. I think if the Wii didnt exist, the PS360 would probably have sold a little more but I dont think they would have sold the 120 million or whatever the Wii sold. Not even half of that. It was a different audience buying the Wii than the one that was buying PS360.
