Here's another prediction to potentially entice you back at some point in the future: the Switch will end up with a Wii-like quantity of shovelware!



"Wii-like shovelware" means nothing in the post Steam floodgates era.

To me Gamecube and Wii U were the ones who should have sold big numbers. But obviously that's not the way it worked out.



The Wii U had excellent first party titles. Bad everything else.

Not sure what you dislike about the Switch. It's basically a continuation of Wii U Nintendo first party efforts, sometimes literally.

Do you use it as intended? On the toilet? In bed? Whilst watching football on the tv? On an aeroplane etc?

I wouldn't be able to game much of anything these days without a second screen.

It's not that I dislike Switch...I just don't see why it's such a hit compared to Wii U. Yeah, the controller is better...the REAL controller. And the hardware is marginally better. The online service is a huge step back from Wii U.  I also think it's hilarious that 80% of it's best games are Wii U ports and everyone loves that, but when Sony or MS get last-gen ports everyone cries about it.

It's because:

#1 Nobody played the games since they didn't own a Wii U. The Wii U had less market penetration than the fucking Dreamcast.

#2 The games are portable. Dark Souls Remastered made me roll my eyes when I saw them charging $40 for it on Steam. It's $40 for the same experience but with slightly touched up textures. But paying $40 to play Dark Souls on the go is incredible.

The Wii U is the first draft of the Switch. It's no wonder the finished version is more successful.

So you're saying Nintendo released an piece of shit, unfinished product with the Wii U?

I guess that's where I just don't care. I've never ever been a handheld person, so I've never cared for playing anything on the go. I typically like playing my games when I'm home, and doing everything else when I'm out.

Exactly. Dumb, semi-retarded question GG.

Hey, you said it, not me. Nyaa

Sometimes a first draft is better than the finished product. In this case, I prefer the first draft; but I don't have the finished product, so I could be wrong. More importantly, the Wii U's gimmick wasn't a good one in a world already saturated with smartphones and tablets, whereas a home console/portable device is right in the hardcore Nintendo wheelhouse, and offers a unique enough experience to attract people outside of it, too. Not to mention how terrible the name was.

And confusing to the average consumer (moron), which by definition should make up a large portion of sales.
