Looks absoloutely fantastic, amazing even for a portable version!! But hey .... " Y wud N E 1 wanna play on a garbij kidds console with bearly a ps2 grafiks " right?

irishyort111d ago

Are you crazy?
This game on a portable console may sell it and bring larger developers to do the same thing, Skyrim is still in the top 25 of games played daily on steam charts, so having this release on a portable could bring a lot of people to the Switch

Neonridr111d ago

I guess you missed his sarcasm..

EddieNX 111d ago

I was just pretending to be a Switch hater 😆 It looks awesome.

chris235111d ago

highly doubt that it will do much for sales of the switch

_-EDMIX-_111d ago

Ok...you do realize that gaming Laptops have existed for years right? That can play Skyrim with mods right?

DarXyde111d ago

EDMIX,

Your point? Laptops aren't as portable as Switch, nor are they traditionally used as dedicated gaming devices.

Take it at face value: a great addition to the Switch catalog. I don't know how you feel about Switch (or Nintendo for that matter) but if you came to the comments section of a positive Switch article with the intention of criticizing it and taking some wind from the sail, I can't say that's becoming of a mature individual.

It's good news, period.

_-EDMIX-_111d ago

@DarX- Laptop is still a portable buddy. Sooooo yea.

"a great addition to the Switch catalog"

6 year old games? Folks out here setting the bar pretty low huh?

" but if you came to the comments section of a positive Switch article"

Came to see what the Switch version looked like...I'm free to do that and comment.

Simply correcting folks that Nvida Shield and Laptops have existed to play Skyrim for sometime. Mind you, I told folks that Persona 5 was also on PS3 and not just PS4....was that simply to make folks feel bad too?

Buddy, if someone is making a incorrect statement, I'm very much going to state facts,regardless of how someone feels about it.

so knowing facts will hurt you?

um..ok. Ignorance is bliss I guess

Here comes Edmix with his "sage-like" opinion on the Switch.

_-EDMIX-_111d ago

here comes Kun_ADR with his irrelevant post...

Kikutaro111d ago

@Kun_ADR remember that one time when he was claiming that the ps4 version of DQXI outselling the 3ds version despite the official Media Create numbers showed the exact opposite just to satisfy his fanboyism for Sony

DarXyde111d ago

EDMIX,

Oh, boy...

"Laptop is still a portable buddy. Sooooo yea."

Yes, and I **specifically** mention that Switch is MORE portable and IS a dedicated gaming device which is far less common in laptops, proportionally speaking.

"6 year old games? Folks out here setting the bar pretty low huh?"

6 year old game you can play on the go. It's funny you mention that though; Shadow of the Colossus was six years old when we got the HD version. Age doesn't really matter when it's a great game that's well loved. It also brings the series to people who traditionally only buy Nintendo.

"Mind you, I told folks that Persona 5 was also on PS3 and not just PS4....was that simply to make folks feel bad too?"

You're asking *me* what the intent behind *your* post was? If you're trying to draw a parallel, I don't see your point; PS3 and PS4 versions of Persona 5's release were contemporaneous. You were making a case before that it's a 6 year old game.

"so knowing facts will hurt you?

um..ok. Ignorance is bliss I guess"

No. Where did I even imply that? I thought I was pretty clear that having the game on Switch is a good thing regardless. And how isn't it? It's a well received game that can now be played on a mainstream portable gaming platform (with a new control scheme, if you desire). Again, how isn't that good news? A multiplatform, well loved game can now be enjoyed by even more people on the go with the same device that one can play Zelda or Metroid. So you can play with mods on a laptop. That's swell, but I wonder if you ever said anything along the lines of, "why buy Skyrim on consoles when you can get mods on a PC?"

_-EDMIX-_110d ago

@Dar- "Switch is a good thing regardless. And how isn't it?"

Who said it wasn't?

"Yes, and I **specifically** mention that Switch is MORE portable and IS a dedicated gaming device which is far less common in laptops, proportionally speaking. "

Thats nice...

"6 year old game you can play on the go"

Yes....on a laptop too.

Your point?

", I don't see your point; PS3 and PS4 versions of Persona 5's release were contemporaneous."

The point was simply pointing out the fact that other versions existed. The point was simply stating the fact.

Had nothing to do with comparing the PS3 version of Persona 5 to Skyrim on Switch, simply folks getting emotionally upset about someone bringing up facts.

For a fact a laptop is portable and Skyrim can be played on it.

@Kik-

"he was claiming that the ps4 version of DQXI outselling the 3ds version"

You forgot PSN =)

Unless Square is lying about their own game lol

Being a kidds console its not a problem. Because Nintendo main target was always kids. You seem very angry with that.

This is a game from 2011 we are in 2017.

Sirk7x110d ago

The updated version of this game just released last year, and sold well. The VR version has yet to release. There is still interest in the game.

Kabaneri111d ago

I got the Special Edition for free on PC, but Im not playing it because I would rather replay Skyrim on the Switch.

Ristul111d ago

I had the game on Xbox 360 but never played more then a few hours, now I'm glad I get to play it on the go on Switch.

yomfweeee111d ago

Visual improvements compared to 360/PS3? Is that something to get excited about?

EddieNX 111d ago (Edited 111d ago )

On a handheld, yes. Thats exactly what it is on full home consoles anyway lol

_-EDMIX-_111d ago

'On a handheld, yes. Thats exactly what it is on full home consoles"

Well you can say the same thing for Mario 64 on DS or Metal Gear Solid 1 on PSP....

Its not that new or big of a deal to play a last gen game on a portable.

Thats quite normal. Trust me, this game has moved over 20 million units, I don't see anyone going nuts over this version. They could already play this on the go with laptop or the Nvida Shield.

Mind you, how many do you think will care when Elder Scrolls VI is announced?

BUT WAIT, lets go nuts over a 6 year old game? ummmmm ok.

StonieWylder111d ago

@_-EDMIX-_
You may want to rethink what you're comparing this to lol, Mario 64 is several gens behind the ds as is metal gear 1 and the psp, laptops don't have the portability of a handheld and the Nvidia shield could only play through streaming which means you're limited to playing around wifi, so far no handheld has shown to be able to play stuff like this.

_-EDMIX-_111d ago (Edited 111d ago )

@Ston- "You may want to rethink what you're comparing this to lol, Mario 64 is several gens behind the ds as is metal gear 1 and the psp,"

Funny....so you see my point? Thanks!

Skyrim is 1 gen behind this gen...

Thanks.

Thats....thats the point.

"Its not that new or big of a deal to play a last gen game on a portable"

A laptop is portable buddy, no matter how desperate you are to pretend its not.

EddieNX 111d ago

EDMIX this is the current gen version of Skyrim though bud 🙂 Bringing up Laptops lol youve become the number 1 Switch hater.

StonieWylder111d ago

@_-EDMIX-_
No I don't see your point, the switch is playing a game that was recently upgraded from previous gen.

Your comparisons come from SEVERAL gens behind making it sound like you're trying too hard to find a comparison because you know there is none.

No matter how desperate you are to compare a laptop to something you fit in your hand there's no contest in which a gamer would choose,lol.

You try too hard man.

_-EDMIX-_110d ago (Edited 110d ago )

@Eddie- "this is the current gen version of Skyrim though"

Not according to Bethesda themselves.

http://www.nintendo.com/gam...

vs

https://www.microsoft.com/e...

Skyrim on Switch doesn't state Special Edition, and its clearly omitted anything about enhancements.

Do you have any real evidence that this is the remastered version? I mean...why would they NOT say Special Edition if it was indeed that?

They have no reason to make their game sell less units by lying, they don't want to be dragged to court for lying about a game bud, this is very much not the PS4 and XONE version, its very, very likely a last gen port.

As to why they worded it that way on the description on the official Nintendo Website.

I mean...on their OFFICAL SITE, its NOT listed under the remastered speical edition.

https://elderscrolls.bethes...

they even make a different spot to put Nintendo's version. lol

"Winner of more than 200 Game of the Year Awards, Skyrim Special Edition brings the epic fantasy to life in stunning detail. The Special Edition includes the critically acclaimed game and add-ons with all-new features like remastered art and effects, volumetric god rays, dynamic depth of field, screen-space reflections, and more. Skyrim Special Edition also brings the power of mods to the PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4. "

Funny....I don't see Switch under there lol

@ston- "Your comparisons come from SEVERAL gens behind making it sound like you're trying too hard to find a comparison because you know there is none"

"Mario 64 is several gens behind the ds as is metal gear 1 and the psp"

That was actually you, you help proved my point pretty good too. Thanks.

Last gen games running on portable isn't new. I agree.

"the switch is playing a game that was recently upgraded from previous gen"

Do you have proof? All the official websites confirm its not the special edition,but a port from last gen.

Like Mario 64, like Metal Gear Solid etc.

Thanks for the examples!

If Sony releases a new handheld/hybrid console that is more powerful than Switch, I will buy it right away. I will stay with my Switch happily wherever I go before that happens.

bloodbond111d ago

Why are you hating on this guy? I looked at the 360/ps3 version and compared them with the switch version and he was absolutely correct, the switch looks better, he also asked a question to encourage participation, to your answer sir, yes.
