ThisGenGaming says "WWE 2K18 has just released on the Nintendo Switch, and these comparison images show a very noticeable decline to run on the Switch."
"Show noticeable decline in visuals" No s**t, you're comparing the most powerful console available to a handheld. It should be obvious there are going to be graphical drawbacks.
There's a big drop in visuals compared to PS4 & Xbox One, a further one with PS4 Pro/Xbox One X.
DiceAndRice The game doesn't have X/Pro support. What you see there is basically the standard Xbone version.
The Xbox One X is 6X more powerful than the Switch and yet no one gives a damn. The Switch will still outsell the Xbox.
@Eonjay And in what way does it benefit you if it sells more or not?? I mean its not like you work for Nintendo. So no benefits will befall you from its great or poor sales. SOOO who cares.
Go eat your rice and play your dice.
Doesn't matter what way Nintendo have decided to market it/call it, the fact of the matter is it's a handheld device. And it looks pretty damn good for a handheld.
PFFT, if he has a Switch, more sales means more games support, especially 3rd party+ it will ensure the platform's viability for years to come (wii U happend literally yesterday) - that means more games, updates and support for Eonjay's Switch. Big sales are always good, no matter how you slice it.
Shameful comment😀😀 512;😀
Nintendo considers the Switch as the successor to their console... not their handheld.
Yet handheld is what it is
True but the stats show most people use and bought it cause its a handheld
They've never said that. They just say it's a hybrid which implies it's both home and portable console in one.
It's a handheld with a TV feature
@DrJones it's a hybrid so it's actually a handheld and console.
It doesn't matter what Nintendo says. The fact is, it's a device that is barely the size of an iPad Mini, and you can play it fully on the go. That's portable by definition. Nintendo could say the Switch is a giraffe, but that wouldn't make the Switch a giraffe. Let's use our common sense. Comparing the graphics of the Switch against those of actual home stationary consoles is ridiculous.
Regardless of that the fanboys are spinning, Nintendo themselves call it a console and it's their product to market as they please, so it's up to them to decide what it is. And yes, it does matter what Nintendo calls their own product because anyone buying a Giraffe and instead getting a gaming console is going to be a little upset, not to mention the people who go to the zoo to see it. https://www.nintendo.com/sw... As for it being a handheld, Nintendo has said that the Switch is not replacing their handheld line, so naturally they are not going to market the Switch as a handheld and risk losing sales in what is traditionally their strongest market. Claiming anything else is going directly against the facts in evidence and just makes you look like a tantrum throwing zealot.
It's confined to the limitations of a handheld. Just because it also can plug into a television for a home experience, it's disingenuous to compare something built with portability and battery life in mind, to that of a system designed to be stationary, and can be plugged into the wall. Nintendo built a hybrid, and they market it as a hybrid. To use your logic, it's fair to take a PS4 and an Xbox One, pit them against the Switch, and then drop the first two a few points because they aren't portables.
Sure they do. They'll think this way(or at least say that's the case) until the sales of the 3DS start to decline, and it supplants the 3DS as their new handheld. Why does it matter? it's a great hand held, and a decent enough home console. Nintendo served two markets with a single device, and it's probably what's best for them because they seem to not want to go the power route in the home console route.
That's nice Nintendo could consider it a taco. This is a handheld device. @deaf-agreed this device is portable purely by the definition of what it is. I mean but like Sony or Microsoft telling you game consoles are not home consoles but instead calculators or smartphones despite not having any of the functionalities to actually justify such a strange definition.
I'm waiting for the comparison with the 3DS and Playstation 4..... I mean since we're comparing handhelds to home consoles.
@CrimsonWing69 the creator of GIF said it's pronounced as a soft "g" as in "JIF" but THAT didn't stop people from using hard "g" like the word "gift" without the "t" so no matter what Nintendo says, there are people who will call it otherwise or...simply as what it is...a HANDHELD!
That's true despite what a consumer buys the Switch for, it's considered a console first so therefore the successor to the 3DS is still coming, theoretically. Thus another confusion that Nintendo created with their consumers, lol.
@twiggytree12 That's Nintendo's fault for calling it a console first.
Handheld? Never knew Nintendo calling Switch the handheld!!! Its consoles they compare dont fool yourself its hybird so we can compare it to vita and ps4 and X1X and Wii U.
No idea where they come up with the idea to type this article its like comparing Sega Saturn against a PS4PRO the PRO will win.
Ok but going all the way back to Sega Saturn isnt really sane. Its more like comparing PS4 pro to Wii U.
Let’s be more accurate your comparing a 6 TF console with liquid cooking designed to be played while plugged into a wall socket and displayed to a 4k tv to an home console that is designed to be able to to picked up and played anywhere in or out the home that is designed to run on a batter and power its own screen as well. Of course there will be graphical differences for the different design goals of the different systems.
So... is it a handheld or a console? seems like when it's compared to consoles and its lacking we call it a handheld. When its comparable to the consoles its a marvel... Will we always shift goals with the switch in the community?
Basically They're going to keep changing and Shifting The Narrative to suit a specific agenda. Notice that when you bring up a gaming laptop you're going to find them valiantly defend that the Nintendo switch is a better portable device... Only to go back and pretend as if it's not portable at all when trying how to make it fit in with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
I wish people could understand this lol The X is like 5-6x the power of Switch
And my PC is probably twice as powerful as the X. Neither of those can I take on the go, however..
I own both and think Switch does a good job. As for power the X is around 5x the power of a standard xbox and closer to 10x the power of Switch (0.5tflop vs 6). Taking this into account the Switch version is impressive, though the X version has not been patched to my knowledge.
This is obviously a big win for X1X. Seriously though....what kind of comparison is this? Is there not a PS4 version to compare it with...or even the base X1? It seems rather silly to compare the graphics between a mid-gen version and for what is essentially a hand held system where people don't expect it to perform close to the most powerful systems on the market.
Basically I mean you're comparing a Home console to a handheld.
I'm reading the comments and I'm trying to figure out why you're getting disagrees I mean you're right were talking about the Switch which is on the go and can be hooked up to a tv against a console thats more powerful. I'm going to say that the disagrees are coming from diehard Xbox fans I mean its like the game couldn't be compared like PS4PRO vs Xbox One X. Hey were diehard Xbox fans lets take whoever has a good theory and disagree with them Xbox One X vs Switch is totally comparable in their eyes. I'm agree being the game could have been compared Switch vs Xbox One or PS4 and the graphics in the game for PS4PRO aren't really great no console has the edge it looks the same every year.
Bu bu but, it's not a handheld, it's a hybrid.
Nintendo sees the Switch as a home console first with a portable option secondary, so therefore it's fair game since they are competing against one another. What's next not having a typical microphone setup in comparison to the other consoles is not fair as well?
Is this author retarded? You're comparing Xbox One X version to the Switch. You're comparing 4K wanna be capable system with way way more horse power to a system with a custom mobile chip from Nvidia that is the size of a tablet. Like come one be real here/
What way to advertise xbox, hows those monthly checks, doing good for ya?
doesn't stop what hes saying to be true. heck next should we be expecting them to compare monster hunter stories on 3ds to monster hunter world on xbxo one x. one is a brand new console developed just to get hgiher resolution and more things on the screen while the other is meant to be the first hybrid console, offering less power but more options through its portability. this is a stupid comparison, if anything it should be based around the switches version compared to xbox one and ps4, not the one s/x or pro
4k wanna be? Um lady I checked there are way more 4k games on here than Pro
14 disagrees just show the ratio of normal people to trolls and ignorants.
Well its the base XB1 gane, as it never got a patch... I would still be happy if the Switch version is similar to the PS3 version... Considering we never got a WWE game on the Vita, this is a huge leap over the PSP version, technically... Gameplay wise, its been a steady downhill since SYM days...
"You're comparing Xbox One X version to the Switch." So much deep down hatred and jealousy, wow! You can hate all you want but this so called 4k console is much more powerful than PlayStation or Switch.
I will agree that the first image looks really bizarre. But the other two comparison shots don't look terrible. Obviously the One X is going to have enhanced textures and lighting, so everything just looks more natural. But it's not like the Switch version is suddenly unplayable. I'm guessing the guys are fairly small on the screen..
Spot on and tbh WWE games don't looks amazing imo anyway.
So the Switch version slightly changes the color of everyone's skin lol
well thats a side effect of the lower quality.
What are you implying there....
As if it wouldn't?
Why is this even news? The Switch is underpowered to the competition. I mean did you do this with Wii vs Xbox 360 and PS3?
Because the Switch version just released and people want to know how it looks compared to other consoles. It's pretty simple...
yeah but why not compare it to the actual consoles that the majority of people are using, you know the ps4 and xbox one stupid f*ckin comparison
it's pretty common knowledge it's an underpowered console compared to the competition, do the math.
Because the Xbox wants to get PR for something lol. When all you really bring to the table is graphics you have to make sure you compare those graphics to everything.
The gap between Wii and 360 was much much bigger than Switch and XB1.
same principle though, it's already known to be an inferior system tech wise... so games aren't going to look as good on it, it's that simple.
This comparison is even sillier, actually. Switch is portable. Wii wasn't.
Water's wet and clickbait is clickbait.
yes. it's outdated tech. With only 2 great games. No surprise.
with only 2 great games? Wrong! 2 game of the year candidates in one year, there's also splatoon, mario kart 8 deluxe, Xenoblade chronicles 2 , Arms, Golf Story, The upcoming octopath traveler, Kirby, Metroid, super smash bors You obviously know nothing about the switch Library, so why are you even commenting? Go pay for lootboxes you ignorant troll.
Should have done an original Xbox One to Switch comparison. Switch games look like garbage compared to current gen consoles, but they sure are fun AND HANDHELD. I love my Switch. Do I wish the graphics looked better than 2008 era stuff? Of course, but achieving Crysis (Warhead) level graphics on a handheld is still damn impressive.
2008 is a bit harsh. The SWITCH is capable of outperforming ANY ps3 or 360 games in every aspect. So if you had to choose a year . 2012/13 would be more fair. 2008 is just ridiculous . Please don't bring PCS Into the equation cus Switch is a console
There are no One X enhancements for this game yet. It's still the vanilla version, more or less.
its pointless comparing really.
I know the Xbox crowd are desperate to justify the existence of the XB1X, but comparing the console to the Switch is a pretty desperate way of doing it. The XB1X is a brand new console with brand new technology (in my opinion it is a new gen console rather than a mid gen console), of course it will have better visuals....whoever wrote this piece is a bit of a cretin, simply searching for hits.
like the Sony crowed when they could noticed the difference between 900p and 1080p yep lol or the xbox is dead articles that has stupid fanboys coming out if the woodwork I'm not desperate to highlight how more powerful it is over the pro because it's obviously clear to see to everyone
Still utterly desperate to compare against the Switch version of a game, pathetic!
