Pretty amazing feat to get Doom on the switch.

Not really. They just downgraded the graphics until it ran. The video I saw looked very downgraded.

Game development is not that easy. If it were that easy then developers wouldn't have to spend days (and sometimes weeks) in the studio trying to meet a deadline.

Optimizations and tweaks need to be made for every game that comes to any platform, Switch included. While development for the Switch has been confirmed to be rather simple, it's not like they can just drop the game on the system, turn a few knobs and call it a day.

The video I saw was the exact same game as the one on PS4 and XB1 with the average consumer not being able to see a difference at all. On the Switches small screen it will look epic.

If it's that simple, why don't they just do the same with The Witcher 3, Overwatch, etc? Just downgrade the graphics until they run.

You seem to be rather knowledgeable on game development. Why don't you call those developers and enlighten them how it's done, so that they can fill the Switch with more third party games?

Out of all the idiotic things to say, you say that... really?

You're probably talking about that "comparison" where someone took screens of off-camera handheld mode instead of a direct feed, and compared it to direct-feed PS4 footage.XD

The game doesn't look as bad as that particular example wants to make people think; honestly aside from a few things being toned down, it looks as close to identical as one can reasonably expect from a $300 hybrid.

The visuals have barely been downgraded at all. I actually would have preferred they were scaled down a little bit more so we could get 60hz instead of 30hz.

Looking forward to double dipping this holiday. I hope everything runs well and the MP is populated

gtxgamer2361d ago

Considering it'll be the first fps game to make it to the switch I wouldn't be surprised if it's heavily populated
