    Exactly! Focus on its sales afterwards now isnt the time to debate such things. At least we got this game on Switch

    Well, but at least it integrated better both screens in the experience, for some games at least. With the Switch either you're in the big screen or in the small one, you can't take advantage of both at the same time. Also the Wii U GamePad is far more ergonomic than the Joy Cons. Both offer you a pro controller , but the cost is ridiculous.

    As for portability, again, I prefer a dedicated system for each. The Switch sacrifices battery life in favor of the 3DS and horsepower to what would be a brand new gen console (this will be on pair with XBox One X and whatever Sony is developing - I know the market isn't exatly the same, or the strategy, but it will eventually feel as visually downgraded as was the Wii to 360 and PS3.

    Not only that, but either you design a game to be on the go, thinking on portability, and multiple short game time periods, or a game to immerse you in the big screen for hours.

    Am I reading it wrong, or are they saying the Switch version isn't getting any of the visual upgrades?
    I was interested in getting it but... I don't want a lazy port.

    Not sure if I should get the switch or vive version, probably go with the vive version as I dont have a switch yet.

    Remember. Not everyone is a multiplat gamer. Also, when you consider the Switch's limitations, better to have enhanced controls and a game you know will operate correctly than to have a game that will have frame rate issues because someone went graphics crazy.

    We already have a PC version of this game. I can see Rockstar just releasing a 4K update, however.

    Funny how almost every game people suggest would be nice to come on the Switch (insert any game here, even mainstream COD, NFS, AC etc etc) from the 'big boys' gets a 'nobody cares about 3rd party on a nintendo', then R* release a 6 year old (good though) game and everybody gets their knickers wet. Same with Skyrim. I mean, i am happy for ALL 3rd party support the big N can get, even if i do not care about them. This is good news but i do believe as others, that this is a stimulant to people wanting the other R* releases... And if they did this one to gauge interest, they chose the wrong title, much like Capcom and EA.

    It's still great for a start, and I think a detective game is perfect for R* to get hang of the HD Rumble.

    love it when nintendo fanboys defend nintendo when they claim it gets the best games, and im like erm how, it never gets the titles the other systems get, and they then counter like why do we need this game if its also on the other systems.

    and here, when news comes that its getting a game that is over 6 years old the fanboys get excited..... erm but how about we get the choice to play the game when it was new, not years later.

    and hence why i dislike nintendo, it never has the option to buy said game when its new, its then ported many years later...... hmmm i already own it on the ps3 so what incentive is there to buy it again and pay more to play it again.

    sorry but just because the switch is portable does not justify it getting very old games ported.

    however if it was something new, today example the likes of RE7 when it came out then yea maybe, but this console is proving to not improve the support it gets, its just a port whore and yes i also point at gear club..... a game that is free on ios, yet nintendo are getting a port.... why the heck pay for something you get for free on mobile devices.

    i can bet once nintendo stop keeping its supply short and demand has been met, it will soon be a silent whisper.

    ohhh and before the fanboys try defend.... yes i think it also sucks that theyre porting a "HD" remake to the PS4 when its not going to be a remake, but also if you then try other ports again same logic, but the PS4/XBX1 have far more games to play that are not ports, that are not indy app crap, thats not free mobile apps ported but you have to pay for..

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    its a shame that the support it is getting is games that nintendo failed to get first time round.

    whats so impressive that in 2017 nintendo are getting a game that was released in 2011.....

    i already own the game on the ps3 and if i didnt would be able to get it for aprox £7.... why the fuck would i pay near £40-£50, lets not also add £290 for the console (if i didnt own it).

    I don't care really much for this game since i founded incredibly boring but is a good sign for the Nintendo Switch becouse...if at the time of the Wii you have told me that in the future we are gonna get a Rockstar game on a Nintendo console will probably never belive you.
    Hopfully this is a good sign for things to come in the future, i don't care about THIS game but if they port the first red dead redempion i will gladly give to Rockstar my money.

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    I hope so. I still dont see any 3rd games that interested me just yet so I will halt not to buy Nintendo Switch just yet. I have PS4 and have alot of 3rd games that interested me. Sighing. Come on, third party! I want to buy Nintendo Switch for one reason: Good games and Switch is cool looking!

    uh, PCs are not consoles. you can tweak the settings on PC however you want, and boost your FPS.

    No I was saying on PC this game doesn't work right going over 30fps because of the engine with the facial animations glitch on anything over 30fps, that's why no PC remaster.

    Please write normally, ok?

    Sometimes I wonder what do people that end sentences with an overelongated so expect as an answer...

    Anyway, it just makes you think of the cost/value ratio, and how it is exactly the same game, so if you didn't play it before, perhaps it is a better use of your money to get the PC version...
