    Test the waters before you dive in first. Nintendo back porting in a log from a failed console on to a successful one is a smart tactic. Bringing popular games people either missed out on or passed for one reason or another is a smart tactic. You all can cry about Ports all you want. We'll see original titles soon enough.

    The problem with that statement is that it's not only Wii U titles. For example, 11 bit studios just anounced 4 of it's games are being ported to the Switch. Some people keep missing the entire point. The problem people have is that the Switch is PRIMARILY a port machine. PRIMARILY!!! Did you catch that??? PRIMARILY?!?!?!?! It doesn't matter if they are 1st party titles or 3rd party titles. The majority for the Switch library are ports. C'mon. What is so incredibly hard for people to understand about this & why do some people try so hard to defend it in a way that makes it seem like they are in complete denial about it? It's a fact. Whether or not a person is okay with it is a different matter altogether. The facts still remain. I'm done with this conversation. The rest of you can continue on if you wish. Cheers. :)

    Nobody is denying that there are a lot of ports, I think we're really talking about different things.
    I started replying cause I get tired of people complaining as soon as they read the word "port". It's just stupid. There are lots of good reasons to port a game.

    I don't deny that there are a lot of ports, I just don't think it's bad at all. And I totally believe that people bought and will buy the switch "primarily" for its exclusives. Aka for Ultimate, the Pokemon games, and yes, BotW.
    And the biggest exclusivity of all: Mobility.

    Back with kitty Zelda forever :D
    I totally agree
    I'm tired of those childs saying "Portendo"
    Most of the time, it's third party games
    So it's not Nintendo's decision...

    I personally think NSMBU was a solid game, but I think a NSMB switch with the NSMBU levels and challenges as a bonus.
