    If the switch fails

    Will nintendo make yet another console? Or will the switch the the last one? Thoughts?

    I really doubt it'll fail. If it does though they'll go handheld/mobile only.

    We don't know enough about the Switch to know if it'll fail or not. However, I believe you're right about the mobile/ handheld part.

    Even in the worst case scenario hardware wise I don't think it'll fail.

    Being incredibly weak. Like weaker then current rumors say. No matter what it's Nintendo's platform for pretty much all their games for the future, that alone gives it a pretty good chance. Plus, it'll sell well in Japan, so Japanese support of some kind.

    If the Switch fails I woul hope they would just do the Sega thing and start making games for Playstation, or something. However more likely is that they would either try again with something new or stick with mobile. I don't care too much what they do afterwards but I would hate to them stick to only mobile.. There games are just way too good for that and deserve to be on consoles or PC.

    With all that being said, I will make a pony bet for the duration of my stay here that the Switch will not fail. At least not like the Wii U. I just don't envision that. I know we talk about this a lot and I am not always the most positive, but I think the Switch will do fairly well. Will it be a resounding success? Probably not. But will it do as terribly as the Wii U? No way. I just don't see it. If they could get just half of the 3DS install base and half of the Wii U install base with some other people jumping on board from Wii days or whatever, they should be doing pretty well for themselves.

    Reviewtech thinks if the Switch fails Nintendo will finally do what everyone wants and release a monster console. I'm inclined to agree with that. Super Tinfoil Dave will be happy at least.

    If switch fails Nintendo will go full into the handheld market. This is the last big throw of the dice. While keeping handheld separate there really wanting it syncronised both. I truly hope they just release everything for my pc instead it'd save me loads.

    2016 was the first year that the number of console owners went down. Sony and MS might be participating in a lost cause with the power race.

    They're already transitioning to that right now.

    If Switch fails, (which I don't think it will) I can see Nintendo going full handheld/mobile

    I've been saying that for awhile Captain Cats. A lot of the Sony/MS acolytes are graduating to PC. Because power is everything, right?
