    Dude, 3DS atm has one of the bests catalogues of the market (not the best, but you cannot ignore it), and Switch has a better catalogue that PS4 and One had on his release year. It's not only about the amount of software it has in this time. It's also that Switch has some of the best games of the year (I strongly recommend you to take a look at the nominated games for this year), and we still have more to come for next year.

    I don't know where your hate comes from, and I don't even mind. For me, this conversation is over since you are just going to throw some shit to the console to say you're right, but I think it'll better for you to think twice what you say before writting some nonsence.

    He won't... Never has. Just some disdain toward a system he wants to fail for some reason.

    dude ok maybe remove your goggles for a moment.

    the 3ds is littered with littke kiddy apps.

    the switch had a terrible launch line up and still to day has lacking titles, nothing new, majority is nintendo porting its old games, other third parties porting its old games, nothing new and fresh.... wow mario rabbids.....

    switch having best games of the year i am sorry but even when nintendo stated BOTW winning GOTY loads of comments saying game was great but wasnt GOTY, they had played better games.

    my hate for the console comes from the fact that it is a console with limited support, do i pay £380 to play PS3/WII U/EXPENSIVE INFERIOR OLD PS4/XBX1 games!

    no do i feck.

    people like you who seem to insist the switch has a shit load of excellent games, please name more than 10.

    and trust me when i say this, because i can look in my gaming room and tell you when i look at all my consoles its odd that nintendo seem to lack, where as PS1/PS2/PS3/PS4 | XBX/XBX360/XBX1 all have a book shelf each, nintendo titles just sit in a little pile.

    i said the exact same thing about the wii u before it launched, i can see the same repeating because its not able to run todays games, devs will jump ship and the switch will be left to the same old nintendo crap and little of anything else.

    we all know nintendo keep lacking this support, why else do you think nintendo keep promising to improve.... shit hardware.

    I should have seen something like this coming (the long tail part of the deal, often in an unusual and nascent market) but did not have the slightest inkling of this one. Might have to go looking to see if I could have seen something coming, though that would probably require the ability to read Chinese (I imagine the Chinese trademark, monopolies commission, equivalent of the FCC... all the sorts of sources we usually get this from don't post internal matters in English).

    Hope someone manages to leak it outside it.

    That's a good decision. China is a developing market in terms of gaming, most of it was banned until recently. Android consoles are very prominent in the region, so I'm a little surprised that they're specifically releasing for the Shield, it could've been a much wider release, there's only so many Shields out there. To be fair though, this might've been a part the Switch deal and possibly gave them a nice discount on the SoC's for the console - the Shield needs content like this.

    i dont want it to fail, i paid £380 for this console that has had nothing worth buying that i dont already own.

    durp de durp.

    when you see nothing changes since the cube erm how can you be a a devoted fan when you never see anything changing, but as a gamer you cant resist having to own a console for the sake of owning it.

    that is the problem, i can get why the fanboys are loving it, i mean your getting to play the third party titles you never got to play 2 generations ago, where as i couldnt give a crap, i already own them, not going to buy it again just to play while taking a crap.

    i want the option to play todays current games, not 2 generation old games, or inferior old ports that cost more than the superior versions i already own.

    but i wont kid myself, i know this wont happen because the hardware simply will not allow it, and then this will be the reason support ends.

    so nintendo are here getting nvida to do the leg work and when said support ends, theyll see how well it worked for them and then bring same to the switch to get you all exited that again you get to play more old titles..... wheres the new stuff.

    This is the first time that mainline games appeared on a third party platform, right? I hope there'll be more of this in the future.

    You don't like it, sell it.

    But nope, it's not just that you don't like it, more like you can't accept the fact that other people like it, can't accept the fact for most here, Odyssey with it's limited "graphics" is more than enough.
    It's your fuck up for getting a console without reading anything about it. You can totally "resist" getting a console, being a gamer, if you don't like the philosophy behind it. It's non sense to give money to a company if you despise everything they do. You just fucked up, don't blame us.

    But seriously, I remember your name from months ago for saying the exact, same, shit.
    And lots of new games came out since then, which would totally disrupt your poor argumentation, but nope, because you're gonna tell us buuh they're just copies of old games using the same IP (cause other consoles don't do that) and it's gonna be all non sense again till you reset with the same initial arguments (buuuh hardware, buuh graphism).

    The Switch is a massive success, not just because of the sales but also because it conquered opinion (Just google "Nintendo Switch").
    Don't like it that's your problem. Just sell it. Seriously.

    While it may not be emulation, it does seem like we could get some kind of GC/Wii VC in the future, which is great.
    Kind of like giving them a taste before giving them the full deal.

    Will you people stop responding to Retroboy and put him on your ignore list? There's something seriously wrong with that guy's head and you're never going to get through to him. So just ignore him.

    Dolphin is on the Shield TV, it just doesn't run much full speed cuz the Cortex A57 in it isn't all that powerful.

    He is a bit more blunt than most and prone to winding up fanboys but I see a lot of sense in what he posts. I happily agree that in post SNES world their home consoles have been seriously wanting, and in post DS world their handhelds have too. In my case I can live without specific games (though I would be delighted if exclusives vanished tomorrow) but N64 and up and 3ds and up, save perhaps the GC if I squinted, would not have allowed me to experience computer games like those before it would have. If that is enough for people then so be it, not enough for me and I intend to keep saying it. I guess it could be argued that at this point for home consoles it is longer than not for Nintendo so it is the business method de jour but still does not mean I have to like it.

    think youll find its when you say you cant accept others like it.

    erm its those that do like it that quote me all the time trying to insist their opinion and that why i dont like nintendo is not true.

    so how can we say its me forcing users that like it, to not like it.

    when its the users that like it, forcing me to like it.

    get my drift here?

    your right some new games have come out, but nothing exactly ground breaking really.

    all i will say is sit back and watch when nintendo release its next system, i can bet you any money that the same old we promise to improve third party support crap will be said again..... its been said since the cube.

    but i simply pointed out a possibility that nintendo are teaming up to see how nvidia can get this support to run on its platform which is basically the same as the switch.

    because when this day comes, dont worry fanboys, nintendo support you by bringing even more old titles from the N64/GC and more..... meanwhile we all know this day is coming that third parties are not going to support it as much, as we see the support its getting so far are old games, we know for a fact it will not get anything new or even when sony/ms release its next systems.

    if people want to try argue this and demand i am wrong, then time will prove i am going to be wright.

    to go back to your point, if users who love nintendo cant accept it that someone else doenst, then accept my opinion and dont try to defend or insist your opinion then these quote BS doesnt keep going on.

    because end of the day no matter what you claim, the switch so far (if you recall everything i ever say about nintendo and you remove its same old titles it releases on all its systems before, minus the odd one here or there) is getting old ports, compare the new titles it has and is coming compared to that of old ports.

    remove third party when it drops, whats left for nintendo..... take a look at all its consoles before.

    i mean if nintendo had this excellent third party support, and i am wrong, then nintendo wouldnt be promising to have better support, even for the switch would they now.

    You pulled that from his seething and biased hatred? Wish I had your eyes. There's very few things I can agree with him on. However, his coarse reaction to how the Switch is doing is rather imbecilic and childish. Calling everyone who actually enjoys the system and feels justified in owning one a fanboy. While completely disregarding the success it's earned in the first 8 months. I'm all for opinions, but his just aren't worth anything. Ironic I guess, as that's my opinion.

    I use a computer for gaming, and I have a ps4 for some specific games. The point isn't that Nintendo consoles is all you should ever need (oh gosh plz no). It's just that when you choose to buy Nintendo stuff, you know what you're getting, you know you're gonna get Mario, Zelda etc and you know that graphics aren't gonna matter a whole lot.
    And that's his whole argumentation. He's bashing a specific console on stuff that the console didn't advertise for. There's simply no point. If the Switch didn't find a public it would have failed like the Wii U.
    I'm not even talking about the constant calls to remaster/ports, something every single console has (and it's not necessarily a bad thing, even).

    It's like criticizing the PS4 cause it doesn't have many 4 players lan games. It's not the point of the PS4 (that's more like what Nintendo does), so if I was to shit on Sony for their lack of fun colorful party games, it'd make no sense.

    there is one thing to add when you say success is that nintendo are only releasing figures and basing its success against its failure.

    it doesnt invlude 3ds sales, which we need to remind that switch is now both markets combined.

    but sales of a console means fuck all, nintendo usually manage to sell well, but theyre like getting a short distant sprinter to do a marathon, yes theyre off to a fast start but they dont keep the momentum going.

    unlike the others are off to a good if not fast start but manage to keep a steady figure going.

    and a console can sell like shit off a stick, that means jack shit, look at how sony and ms are always at each others necks with ive pissed farther than you, erm i couldnt give two fucks.... what i do know is that they both offer games i want to play, both give me the option to say you know what, this new release ill buy it for xxx because i have plenty to play on yyy.

    tell me, please anyone who keeps quoting me and insisting your view desperate to defend and refuse to accept not everyone loves nintendo and for a valid reason.

    tell me when nintendo get the option to play xxx game at the same time when its just launched on the other systems..... Not that often and it has been the case since the cube. then the fact behind why, so for the love of man, love the console but please stop denying that these issues are not true, when its been the case for many years.

    ohh yes, its getting LA NIORE, a PS3 port..... end that case right there, yes the PS4/XBX1 are getting cheaper superior ports, same logic applies, i already own the game and has no interest to me, i didnt think the game was that great either..... but i can see why nintendo fans (who claim nintendo get the best games and the others suck) are getting excited over this, like they did doom, like they did fifa.

    im sorry to suggest but i think deep down theyre mad because they know they dont get these games, so as we know like to pull wool over their eyes, then say nintendo has the best games.

    im sorry but i will always favour the console that offers what i want to play, over one that only offers a tiny few and if that its old ports which i already own.

    so if anyone again wants to insist i am wrong, then name me more than 10 games that is available on nintendo consoles since the cube that has also been available on the other systems at the same time, not years later.
