The Nintendo Switch DESERVES to do well

It's been said to death, but now we all know after actually playing with it for days. The Switch is really the ideal Console. Aside from the obvious, I can't get enough of the fact that you can pay $80, which yes is a bit expensive, but you get two functional controllers that can combine to make a single controller. It's just so damn versatile and games look and play amazingly on it.

Nintendo did so much right with this, and this console more than any other really deserves to perform amazingly on the market, I'm just not sure that it'll manage to pull it off for too many reasons, sadly.

switch can succeed where the vita failed, nintendo took the vita approach of console quality gameplay on the go and took it one step further. 

few things that will allow switch to be a success is lower price and more games

& maybe it will.
Really have to wait at least 6 months to gauge it, if not a yr.
See how many units it's sold by next March, how many games it has available & how many 3rd party devs are making games for it.
It's been out a couple days & supplies are low.
Give it some time.

Ask Nintendo why they haven't released sales figures yet. It is customary for console manufacturers to release first day sales so why are they hiding the numbers? They're a publicly traded company wheres the transparency, why no press release?
If they iron things out appropiately and continue along with the indie support along with 3ds and vita developers moving over. If you combined 3DS/Vita/WiiU that would be an absurdly insane amount of games even though AAA support is lacking. If at bare minimum, Nintendo can achieve that, its a great console, espedcially for ppl that own multiple systems.

How is the switch an ideal console? You know how many times I wished my Xbox 1 was portable? 0 times.

My X1 can play stronger games than the switch, and can act as a multimedia server enabling me to watch tv, stream movies from my pc, go to YouTube, watch Netflix or all the other unsorted apps.

A dedicated tablet that l, as of now, only plays stronger games than regular tablets, is hardly the "ideal" console.

And let's stop the "switch was made for GAMERS" no, the switch just lacks features all other consoles have had for 10yrs. You can't remove the radio from my car and say "this is a car for DRIVERS!"

its ideal for handheld fans. home console fans dont really get much benefit from it other than being a stronger wiiu for better looking/performing games. 

it is taking the vitas whole "home console gaming on the go" thing and running with it, but outside of the dedicated handheld gaming community how many people have been craving for home console gaming on the go? i know i havent wished my ps3/ps4 was portable, but i am someone who kind of grew out of the handheld scene, i used the vita streaming thing for a sec, but never logging major hours into it. 

ill get the switch when it gets a LOT more games that im interested in that arent on ps4, and also when it gets the streaming, and browser features. if I get it, it will be to replace the tablet I have already, im not for adding more and more devices when Im out and about, ill only add something to replace something.

question.

And MS and Sony should stop with their underpowered redundant machines. PC does everything those two do but at a much higher point. Nintendo is truly the only company actually doing something different to shake up the gaming environment. Sony and MS may sale well to those who cant afford a good gaming PC, but eventually they will hit a wall. Graphics will ALWAYS be better on PC. So at some point, without a gimmick, people will just go PC. 

You people need to quit being ignorant and realize Xbox and Playstation are incredibly weak in their own right. You guys are playing on a low budget PC. Course I don't expect the denial to set in yet.

Nintendo like everyone else in this world deserves nothing.
If they flop now like they have multiple times in the past, then that's what they deserve as they had multiple times to learn from their mistakes and yet they just keep repeating them.

If no more games came out on PS4 for the rest of the year, they would already have a bunch of major GOTY contenders. Their lineup this year looks insane. So why would people abandon that?

I've always been a console gamer over a PC gamer and I can't overstate how disappointed I am with this new cutting edge "generation" of watered down computer boxes. We're moving towards a day when the ONLY advantage Microsoft and Sony have over PC gaming is price. The Switch is a different beast and I'm very glad for that.

No, it's factor they can't control that could be this console's downfall imo. Well, price is definitely on them, but they likely chose this price so that they can alter it more freely down the line. But things like the huge competition they have with both mobile and PS4, people may be scared away after seeing how expensive the controllers are, there isn't much at launch aside from Zelda, and third parties seem to be only touching it with a ten foot pole. 

The PS4 is mostly successful due to the circumstances surrounding it being good in addition to it being good hardware. The Switch is good hardware surrounded by terrible conditions.

Lol at your only argument being two controllers in one, and ignoring all the negatives. Firstly, $40 is still expensive for one controller, and secondly, the only worthwhile multiplayer game I can think of using a single joycon is Mario kart and some other racers.

Smash bros? No c stick

Splatoon/ shooters? No right stick for aiming

Sorry, but I can't agree. After their incredibly poor handling of the Wii U, Nintendo doesn't deserve to have the Switch succeed. It needs to earn success by having a solid library consisting of great first party titles and good third party support. I've long outgrown the point in my life where I would happily give Nintendo money just because they were Nintendo.

The system itself is great with a few obvious issues.

Nintendo's handling of the system so far leaves a lot to be desired.

I'm saying on merit of the system alone. The Wii U has nothing to do with this.

Sony has more exclusives this than Nintendo. Have fun playing 2 games a year at best,with massive game droughts on the switch. Nintendo could only dream of PS4 numbers

I'm interested in a bunch of games on the Switch for just this year alone. The added portability of the Switch means it will be my main indie system on top of the Nintendo games coming.

Hate to say it, but i agree. They already got awesome first party exclusives, but I just want them to make an up to date modern console that has the same 3rd party support like the ps4 and x1. Every time they make a new console they do something stupid that holds the console back. (except for the snes)

I used to want that but playing the power game with MS and Sony would be the kiss of death. Both Sony and MS have rabid fan boy followings. Nintendo has to do something different. They want this to be the next Wii. Lots of Sony and Xbox fans had a Wii as their other console

No it f***ing doesn't until Nintendo actually fixes the issues. If nothing changes and people are fine with terrible paint job, and makes own workarounds for the dock i have lost all my faith in gaming community. If this kind of s*** quality is passable for people idk what to say, except enjoy your lowered standards. It will only got worse there. Enjoy your switch 2.0 with screen factory scratches, full of dead pixels because they will be taken from junkyard.

It would deserve to do well if they had the decency to give it an actual f***ing library and didn't pull this artificial scarcity tactic once again. One shoddy port of a game that doesn't appear to be living up to the hype is not enough to sell people and Nintendo has learned nothing from their previous anti-consumer stints that ended in utter failure. Mario should have been a launch title, but it's not. They're getting absolutely reamed by piracy on all fronts and I'd say they honestly deserve it right now.

Playing Breath of the Wild in handheld mode in bed is a game changer. Its my new favourite system. A beastly sexy device that looks great and feels good to hold. Its like a beautiful woman with large neon breasts. Sitting on my lap. Letting me play with her joycons and buttons.

No it doesn't.

It deserves to flop HARD so Nintendo can finally learn their lesson. Namely how Iwata was disastrous to the company and Yamauchi is the dead former president whose path should be followed.

Better yet, find a way to bring back Yamauchi's ghost from the grave so he can whip Nintendo's sorry asses back into shape.

You're what's wrong with gaming. Caring about power over everything else is the reason we keep getting pretty games with little to no substance. Thanks for that.

Nintendo did so much right with this, and this console more than any other really deserves to perform amazingly on the market


It doesn't deserve it more than PS4, Sony did almost everything right with that console and learned from all of their mistakes with the PS3.

And it's not the perfect console, it's more of a handheld hybrid. You're sacrificing so much power to make it portable, if all you care about is gaming at home on the TV, Switch is under performing.

Especially compared to PS4 and XB1 which are actually cheaper.

Not to mention worse online, multimedia features, it'll have less games full stop.

It's a cool device, but the phrase "jack of all trades, master of none" comes to mind.

If someone wants a proper console, I'd recommend PS4 or XB1, not Switch.
