This would be insanely cool. I just don't actually expect it to happen, unfortunately. Realism versus optimism, I think.

Hmmmm, wonder how they would pull this off. Interesting if true.

Really interesting since they bitched to the high heavens about the problem they faced with Sony.

A. The Switch has more power than rumors have reported.
B. They sacrificed some graphic and texture for a more robust game.
C. Its been ported to run on Switch with Mods

Here's hoping, but just to play fair: if it does get mods, don't expect PC grade stuff.
It will work like the PS4, in that it will only be able to use in-game assets for said mods.

Definitely. Sony is particular because they will not allow any mods that require enough resources to decrease OS functionality in a significant way.

Nintendo will be particular because they have a history of their systems being hacked wide open and are probably reasonably worried that their method of deeper mod integration may come with a flaw that allows for hackers to make their first breach.

In all honesty, that lobbies and chat app will probably be the first gateway for hackers.XD

Hope this is true. Mods enhance any game greatly and keep a community active

The trailer that they have shown during the announcement looks nothing like the Skyrim HD or in this case "Special Edition"

Damd_Bowsr418d ago

That is also not the release version of the game.

It did , it certainly looks better than the ps3 360 version

Pancit_Canton418d ago

No it doesn't. You need get your eyes check

EddieNX 418d ago

Sorry your haters opinion clearly isn't valid. BOTW looks like an early ps2 game as well?

wonderfulmonkeyman418d ago

Yeah, well you're also one of those graphics whores who thinks BotW on Switch looks like a PS2 game, so anyone who'd take you seriously on this needs their head and eyes replaced.
It looked just fine.
