I don't think 3rd parties will ignore it. It's easily going to be a better selling sku compared to the 500$ anaconda anyway. Like the switch has taught us devs will do anything to reduce graphics to release a game on the popular hardware.

300$  and probably a bundled month of gamepass to play the next new thing Is a no brainer and an instant hit if marketing is done correctly. Casuals just care about the price.

 

I am more worried about MS s marketing and msg to be honest.

But switch has a big base because of quality exclusives, innovative design and brand recognition none of which MS has. The popularity comes before the third party support.

The third party AAA support on Switch is way, way smaller than you think. If Xbox got that few major 3rd party games it'd be dead in the water. No big Ubisoft games, no CoD or BF or Star Wars or Destiny, no R* games, no modern Capcom stuff besides overpriced legacy remasters, gimped FIFA version from last year etc.

I think you'll just have watered down ports like you get with Switch. Either way it doesn't really matter because MS can't force 3rd parties to support it and hold back their games like they'll do with first parties. Heck I'm not even sure the "forward compatibility" BS will continue beyond first year.

 

The difference is that switch doesn’t get watered down ports of every single game whereas here i think theyll enforce (hope im wrong) them to make a version for this console too. 

 

This rumor actually starts making more and more sense if we bring this year's halo infinite trailer into the picture. For a console thats going to be almost 10X more powerful than its predecessor, the visuals there looked just about good as some current day games. Heck i would say that the character models in Detroit and death stranding both surpass it.

1 Xbox One has a larger userbase than Switch. Or at the very least, comparably similar. 

2 Gamecube had stellar quality exclusives, better than the Switch does right now.

3 WiiU had more brand recognition than the Switch did when it launched.

 

Nintendo's success since the 64 has pretty much been dependent on how well their console gimmick/innovation/whatever catches the public's imagination. If the gimmick works, it will sell. If not, it will die.

The only Nintendo console that succeeded due to a gimmick was the Wii. Success/Failure of the rest was more dependent on external factors.

 

1) Switch has been outselling the PS4 and is only out for some 2(?) years now. At the rate it's going, I wouldn't be surprised if it reaches/surpasses PS4 numbers; forget about the Xbox One.

2) Gamecube went against the PS2. And let's be fair, no console that ever goes against the PS2 is ever going to have good sales

3) WiiU was a marketing disaster. Many uninformed people thought that the WiiU was a side-grade/attachment to the Wii, due to the name. Plus all those casuals who purchased the Wii only for Wii Sports (Most of Wii sales were for this) were moving to mobiles

 

Switch actually has a very bright future. In the short span it's been out, it had tons of 85+ meta games. Almost all the good WiiU games are being ported to Switch, so people who skipped WiiU can play it (Which is almost everyone). Plus, the entire handheld market (which includes the behemoth numbers of people who were 3ds gamers) are all shifting to the Switch. And it's mostly not due to the gimmick at all. Handheld+TV mode is done really well. But even if it was handheld only, it would still get huge success. Nintendo was always the king of handhelds, and the Switch is the true successor to the 3ds. This time taking along the PSP/Vita customers as well, since Sony has left the Handheld industry.

We’ve got around 20 minutes of new game reveals, release date announcements, new gameplay footage, PlayStation Worldwide Studios updates, and more. And it probably bears repeating: Don’t expect any updates related to our next-gen plans in this episode.
