With so many mainstream and casual gamers to attract, Sony will be more worried about Switch than Xbox One X.
Well Nintendo routinely prove why the industry really needs them.
Everyone criticises them for release "another Mario" but tell me, which platformer on any other platform comes remotely close to what they show? After decades Mario still schools all other platformers, at least as far as early impressions go.
Which platformer on any other platform comes remotely close to what they show you ask?
Crash n sane trilogy, cuphead, ori 2 and EVEN knack 2 surpass mario odyssey.
don't get me wrong, mario odyssey is a really great game from what we saw... But crash and cuphead are amazing.
Hmmmm I don't know.
I think ori 2 (based on how amazing the first was) would be the only one out of that list to top Oddysey. Knack 2 and Crash look amazing (great year for platformers) but Oddysey looks to be a level above them. Cuphead looks cool but I think that would be on the lower end of that list, top being made up of ori 2 and Oddysey and Crash + Knack in the middle. Once They all come out I could easily change my mind after playing them but from what I've seen, Mario looks damn good.
I need more Mario! Come on!
Mario Maker port please as well! Didn't have a Wii U!
Moar, moar, moar! Come on! Need more Switch time!!
Mario makes me wanna get a Switch to compliment my PC.
Highest rated exclusive Zelda + Mario Odyssee in the Switch's first year . . hot damn.
I have been nothing but impressed with the switch. Zelda is a master peace and Mario Kart is now the best one we have seen as it has full battle modes. Add Splatoon and Mario later on this year I'm a happy customer.
Nintendo's new Mario game is looking very nice, Ubisoft's aswell.
Not enough for me personally to make the leap to switch, but still looking good.
Mario Oddysey was one of my favourite games from E3. Looks fantastic!
Same! Definitely makes me want to pick up a Switch
Not fussed about the whole 'nemesis' blah blah but I'll be doing my best to get my hands on Mario when it releases, no doubt it'll be brilliant.
Eh? No. If anything Switch compliments the PS4 but MS has more to worry regarding Switch.
The fact is Switch is not going really going after the same gamers as Sony and MS are.
The fact is MS with X1X is competing directly with PS4 especially for 3rd party.
Come Nov when the X1X is released PS4 gamers will be face with this choice. Note that the PS4 userbase is the largest right now. So buy a X1X that is 499 that plays most of the 3rd party games on the PS4 or buy a switch at 299 with amazing games that is only found on the Switch.
I already made my choice. The Switch is the perfect second console. Come Nov the majority of gamers (PS4 gamers) will most likely pick the Switch.
For the rest of the gamers left yet to upgrade. It will be a question of price and game selection which Switch and PS4 will be the main ones to consider. X1X is really will be the odd one out.
