    Alternatively, we could go with the "Crooked Politician Theory". He keeps whining about how bad Switch is because he secretly wants one, but he can't let that secret out because reasons.

    You could squeeze in a 1.8" drive and the power consumption wouldn't be that bad. Rotational media isn't particularly good for things you hold in your hand, or drop...

    That's where SSD comes into play, an HDD would be a very bad idea.

    In your closet, watching you clop
    No console is up to date with the tech, since the moment they launch they are behind it already, because of how development of consoles works.
    And if you want to go with "see the system for what it is" can be said about the rest to.

    I blocked him as well he acts like Nintendo f*cked his gf or something. Definitely hating on something he doesn't own.

    My list has grown to 21 members. Forum experience gets upgraded each and every time I block someone. Soon enough I'll reach a perfect Forum Experience score.

    Not magically.. But the difference would have been negligible. That's what I meant.

    Of course, I'm more than likely wrong in that aspect. Wouldn't surprise me. Maybe I should label everything "My Thoughts, Ignore"

    The store is literally broken for a lot of people. It's not just a case of use it once. There's lots of people who have issues with it. Not downloading properly, refusing to update games etc. Trying to get the whole game again instead of updating. Something Microsoft seems to show little interest in addressing as it's been going on for quite a while.


    All the play anywhere titles are high end titles aimed at people with gaming rigs, while you are probably right that there are a lot of Xbox owners with steam, I doubt there are a significant amount with an Xbox + a pc capable of playing the games. There just does not seem to be a great crossover of people with a high end rig + a console.

    And while it might be great for Xbox owners who get a pc in the future, current PC gamers have shown little interest in moving over to the win10 store, even with the offer of an Xbox game as well. Gears Of War 4 is a fantastic port, has everything going for it, and while there are no sales numbers for pc specifically, judging by the online population vs consoles, it hasn't sold very well on pc.

    PC gamers just don't seem interested in giving up a relativly open format (win32), for a highly restricted format (uwp) that prevents lots of applications people use and also restricts modding etc for the promise of "well you can play on xbox". So unless all the Xbox owners decide to switch, the play anywhere program won't make a dent in steam. Considering Steam has over 125M active subs, even if every Xbox owner switched to the win10 store, it still wouldn't make a dent.

    That's also true. Maybe I should properly read the spec sheet.

    Because the games won't sell, it cost more money and time down porting to arm from x86 then trying to get the game to run stable, and all the other associated stuff and costs with publishing a game on another console that's its not worth it to them financially.

    More like the other way around, Microsoft is on the front row when it's about "fuck pc gaming".
    It less obvious now, but who remember the horrible, the treacherous, the ugly,... "Game for Windows LIVE" *dramatic sound*:tpi:<muahahahaha

    If a program is written properly, "porting" from one CPU architecture to another should be a matter of swapping out the toolchain and that's it. Especially since both ARM and x86 are little-endian.

    *some ARM CPUs are big-endian, e.g. the Wii and Wii U "security" CPU, but the vast majority, including those in Android devices, 3DS, and Switch, are little-endian.

    Something that is apparently ignored by many is that a lot of criticizers actually own a switch and for the most part are happy with it. The flaws within it are just tough to ignore. And a lot of these nintendo "fanboys" know exactly what flaws the switch has. Both just can't stand that discussion of flaws often turn into flaming and in the end becomes a flame war.

    I though ARM could support both. Misinformation?

    Edit: oops didn't saw the tiny writing under. My bad.
