    Truth be told I wouldn't mind an x86 box, I'd definitely buy it. But I love portable tech do something like switch hits home with me. But I do see the points where people should be able to have one console and play a lot of games on it.

    However as the current situation stands I say ps4 is an amazing alternative to a Nintendo box, it does what switchdon't as a TV console. There's no Nintendo games but ps4 has its own up it's sleeve that are legitimately great.
    I wish they would have done it like some of us (especially Darth) were speculating. They could have had a powerful console and a separate handheld. The same games could work on both, only scaled down on the handheld, like how PS4 Pro games scale down to original PS4. That way, the ones of us who wanted a powerful console could have it, and the ones of us who prefer mobile could have that.

    But they chose to go the other route and try to cram it all into one 6-inch tablet. It is what it is, and we all have to live with it. At least the mobile people are very happy.

    You literally called me a troll over me explaining that a switch will miss more games than a ps4 missing just Nintendo games. And it wasn't in the context of walking into a pro switch site and preaching about the almighty ps4 obviously

    This.
    Nintendo's vision is that everything is in one place. The handheld and console split you could argue that it would be more expensive to buy both platforms than just one switch. What you are suggesting is very similar.to the Vita and ps4/ps3, there are games that release on both Vita and the consoles and you can transfer saves back and forth, and the consoles get all.the big third party stuff. However you have to have two platforms to make use of this "hybrid" functionality. And in Nintendo's case I doubt they'd have every single one of their own games on both platforms as they have to have exclusives for both to sell them right?

    What I'm suggesting is like Nintendo's very own Wii U and 3DS, only a lot better because they would be able to play the same games. It would be more expensive, but you wouldn't be required to buy both. The way it is now, I'm required to buy a handheld even though I don't want one. Just let people choose what they want. I'm sure there would be plenty of people who would buy both.

    But it doesn't matter anyway because that's not what they did.

    That would have been ideal. This thing's mobility novelty is terribly under utilized in my home.

    If Nintendo actually does release all their games for one platform it'll be awesome.

    The forced mobility thing is something I've admitted to in the past where I have said that if you weld it to the dock then you are overpaying for the system as you aren't using the screen and battery it came with

    It would be like if all the PC gaming in the world magically became laptops and you were forced to get a gaming laptop that costs way more per performance than a desktop even though you were gonna be glued to a desk and comfy chair anyways.

    Got to burn through all of those Wii U ports before they can start charging us for deluxe editions of 3DS games. It will happen though.

    Most of them are third party man and whatever Nintendo does make it's nowhere near the effort it took when the 3ds was in it's prime. When 2016 ended so did the 3ds's golden run and now it's the budget affordable option with a huge backlog and some new stuff.

    Now that you mention it, when they port Smash over, it will probably be the 3DS version.

    3DS is far from dead. It's getting a Fire Emblem game soon, a full Kirby game in the holiday season, and very likely the 2018 Pokemon game (remember, DS got support into 2012).

    And with 3DS II releasing in late 2018/early 2019, the handheld market will be stronger than ever!

    3DS needs to die. If they're still dedicating 10 mins of a direct to 3DS in 2019 I'll be pissed.

    Especially since they have two handhelds on the market.

    Aonuma's Zelda games being compared to Joel Schumacher's Batman movies is the biggest load of crap I've read on the forums in a while. No offense, but come on man.

    It's almost as if people have different tastes and opinions. I don't get the reference since I don't like watching movies (anything scripted on TV is pretty boring to me) but if that analogy means the latest 3D Zeldas sucked, then I agree. Breath of the Wild removed so much cliche Zelda ideas and actually made a fun game with no linearity and very little hand holding. The formula needed to change.

    They took out the cliche Zelda ideas and added Koroks.

    Lots and lots of Koroks

    And by taking away the linearity, handholding and "save 3 sages and do 8 dungeons" formula, it ended up being the best received Zelda in almost 20 years.

    People having different opinions wasn't the issue. The comparison was what I have a problem with. And seriously, Aonuma has been a part of the Zelda series since OoT, and you guys think every title since sucks? To each his own.

    Hey I'm fully aware of the fact that I'm in the teeny tiny minority and that I probably won't get another Zelda game that made me love the series again... Where was I going with that?

    I'll be over here crying.

    I do find it odd that Zelda went from a vision of completely open world but took many games to get back to that. But I enjoyed the games I played before botw anyways. I just don't see them as the same types of games since they aren't the sandbox open world games you can mess around in like botw.

    Why do some of you stick with Nintendo?

    i feel like glacier threw a candy bar in a pool with this thread and walked away.
    my take on it: why do any of us care what the other does with his or her money? who. cares. what you people do is none of my business. also, starting a thread to prove a point... twist anything any way you want and i'm sure you'll get whatever it is you needed out of it. like a piece of paper. you can use it to write ideas down, or into a ball to throw at your sister's head.
    at the end of the day it's also ok to have multiple opinions of 1 company. stating that a company is all good or all bad really doesn't take into account all their decisions to your life. it's like voting, you should be critical not only of the opposition party but of your own.
    and no, i don't read what you write because i like monologuing.

    It's great now. Now it's changed up to "do 4 dungeons and save 4 champions." Instead of going on a collectathon for 12 Tears of Light, you get to go on a collectathon for 120 shrines and 900 Korok seeds.

    I'm somewhat with you on that. I don't want every LoZ to be just like Horsey Zelda because that'll end up being just as boring as what they were doing before, which was just regurgitating the same old nonsense over and over.

    Unfortunately they seem to be taking the wrong lesson from the great sales of BotW, and to a lesser extent HW. I think a lot people just wanted the Zelda series to try something new (in a way) and that's why sales were strong. The series had gotten stale af.

    So instead of seeing the sales of HW and concluding people want more combat oriented Zelda, Nintendo concludes we want more DW games, which I think is erroneous. With BotW, we got less linearity and hand holding and Nintendo thinks it did well because it was open world.

    That certainly helped, as did being the only Switch game currently worth a damn, but I think Nintendo is missing the point.

    Maybe people don't want a lot of BS and just want to explore a cave and fight monsters.

    Nah, that couldn't be it.

    Anyways, it was my genuine pleasure to compare some LoZ to Schumacher Batman. I think it's accurate, in the sense that the guy in charge figured if he just threw all the things people expected to see into a box it would turn out well.

    my take on it: why do any of us care what the other does with his or her money? who. cares. what you people do is none of my business. also, starting a thread to prove a point... twist anything any way you want and i'm sure you'll get whatever it is you needed out of it. like a piece of paper. you can use it to write ideas down, or into a ball to throw at your sister's head.
    at the end of the day it's also ok to have multiple opinions of 1 company. stating that a company is all good or all bad really doesn't take into account all their decisions to your life. it's like voting, you should be critical not only of the opposition party but of your own.
    and no, i don't read what you write because i like monologuing.

    i mean it was probably a piece of shit in the pool. instead of buying a candy bar he would emulate it with higher graphics and then throw money to the emulators. or maybe he would have purchased another $80 2ds since there is more value in it.

That way, the ones of us who wanted a powerful console could have it, and the ones of us who prefer mobile could have that.

    But they chose to go the other route and try to cram it all into one 6-inch tablet. It is what it is, and we all have to live with it. At least the mobile people are very happy.
    Nintendo stated awhile ago that the reason the hybrid idea appeals to them is because it halves the time and cost of game development by putting everything on one platform. Once the 3DS is phased out, their vision with Switch will become much more realized.

    It would be the same with the way I was talking about. They only need to develop one SDK/API where a game can be programmed once, and scaled to the hardware. That's exactly what MS and Sony are doing right now.

    Then we'd be back to two Nintendo options. Since the Switch has been a thing, going back to dedicated home consoles and dedicated handhelds seems SOOOO 2016

    I've heard the idea that the Switch Mini, if that's going to happen, could essentially be a Switch you can't dock, but plays all the same games as regular Switch. That's so stupid it's brilliant. Nintendo gets a console and a handheld and they run the same software.

    Japan gets a handheld, every one else gets a home console, and Nintendo only has to make one game to cover both, plus it's not region locked, so if they don't want to port Toilet Adventures from Japan they don't have to but savinghyrule can still buy it.

    Personally, I'd rather see a Switch that drops the portable aspect and the stupid HD Rumble in favor of a price drop, a pack in game and either a pro controller or a charging grip.

    If Nintendo doesn't have one of these waiting in the wings, I'd say they have at least considered it, they'd be dumb not to.

    It's very consistent with how they have treated their handhelds in recent years, and are starting to do with software. Offer a game, than sell another updated version for full price and watch the money roll in. The 3DS versionsand WiiU ports, especially one game in particular, prove this is where their collective head is at.

    They want you to buy a game, than buy it again because this new version is portable, or supports Amiibo, or has features that really should have been in the original...whatever, it doesn't matter because some people will do it.

    I've seen the argument that offering a version of the Switch that is either/or defeats the purpose of the name "Switch" but I'm not sure I agree with that if you look at it from a software perspective. You can Switch your gameplay style by simply moving the cart, correct?

    Bait and Switch.

    I've just come to the realization that I'm never going to get anything I want out of Nintendo, other than a good Zelda game every 6 years.

    Well, it took me longer than that, so I guess a winner is you?

    And you'll just blame your family wanting the Switch for any other situation you find yourself enjoying the Switch in amirite

    Exactly!

    I have to admit, though, they did a good job with that Pro Controller.

    If that's your silver lining than that sucks.
