Nintendo is on a roll with no end in sight. There's a good reason for that: The Nintendo Switch is the best console to buy.
Because you already have the other two and some great games are finally being released for the switch...
That was my first thought when I saw the headline. No disrespect but the switch is the world's best side chick console. I can't miss out on so many multiplats the Xbox and ps have access to. No sir
Looking at the Nintendo boys comments and behavior we are afraid of what Nintendo games will do to our brains. We don't wanna be 9 year olds for life. Parents should forbid thwir kids Nintendo games at home. And the way Nintendo prices their kiddie games specially their old games....nope. That is highway robbery, man. Where you can buy great games at budget flash sale prices on PSN and Xbox all the time.
@SuperSonic91 Looking at your comments you're already there. Just read another article here and apparently Switch is getting porn now lol. The truth behind this article is Switch is getting more than double the exclusives anything else is this year, prepare your frail heart to see a lot of articles like this.
@genger, double the exclusives my ass lol.
*More* than double the *noteworthy* exclusives. What else beyond Days Gone is confirmed for ps4 in 2019?
Because you’d be pretty stupid to invest in a ps4 at this point, when ps5 next year will probably play ps4 games. And why the fuck would anyone ever buy an xbox, all those games are on pc anyways. Ps4 and switch have the most classic games ever, personally, and I been gaming for all of these brands console history. But ps4 about done, and switch kinda just started. Get a switch, save for a ps5.
Does your PC Run Red Dead 2 in native 4K? There are a ton of games that look and Play better on X1X. With all of the studios Microsoft has acquired, they are going to be something to recon with next gen! Unless you are a computer person 90% of PC owners cant run Current gen games in 4K. So suck on it fanboy.
Bahahahahha..thanks man, I needed a good laugh this morning
MS will be same next gen as every other gen. Maybe worst now that they are placing their games directly on that streaming service. Quality matters.
Native 4k huh? I guess because your favorite plastic box is doing as poorly as it has been, you've been forced to be disingenuous for so long you no longer know truth from lies.
Unfortunately your p.o.s led TV smears the crap out of a decent 4k image so they all end up looking the same anyway. LCD tech sucks.
Because many of us dont like gaming on a pc? I spend my gaming time evenly split between my xb x and ns. My ps pro never gets touched. Different people have different preferences. As to buying a ns over the others, id suggest it for anyone who doesnt want to be confined to a chair, or who commutes a lot. If you want the best looking, get a xb x or pc(depending on how you like to game), and if your into sp experiences and dont mind the company fleecing you at every turn, get a ps pro.
I detect a fan boy. Nice try wise guy.
-typical Xbox fanboy comment
I can hook up my pc to my TV with an hdmi cable and use an Xbox One controller with it too, you aren't limited to a small monitor on a desk, in case you didn't know
Earlier in the gen PS4 and Pro were my go to for multi-plats, but then the Xbox One X came out. Haven't touched my Pro since God of War, and I probably won't touch it again til The Last of Us II, which will likely end this PlayStation generation with a bang.
Gaming on PC is the same as gaming on console, except better. Don't like sitting at a desk? Plug it into your TV. Don't like mouse and keyboard? Plug in a controller. If you're unfamiliar with PC, or lack the knowledge to get into it, then it's understandable, but the whole "I just don't like it" thing is nonsense. You don't like a better experience? "...don't mind the company fleecing you at every turn, get a ps pro." Weird way to spell Xbox.
A dead giveaway of a lying Xbox fanboy is him saying “my PS4 pro never gets used”. “Don’t mind the company fleecing you at every turn...” Out of the big three, MS is the only one putting pay to win micro transactions in their games.
@TheSocietalAsnomaly "And why the fuck would anyone ever buy an xbox, all those games are on pc anyways." Whilst that is true, the game pass makes it cheaper and much more convenient.
It always makes me laugh when people bring up PC in a console discussion. The majority of people that play on console dont really play on PC. You don't hear Sony fanboys stating they'll be playing the next great multiplat on PC. The fact is multiplat games are a huge part of every console, and if you want the best version right now the X is the best to play them. That being said, the playstation has had that advantage for about 4 years, so dont know if people would make a jump to xbox for the added power, considering the pro has some added power as well.
Well there is 2 years left before next gen. I would say the only reason one should get the Switch is because they already have PS4 and want a handheld.
I have a Switch and it's a fantastic console, but if you're looking to get one, I'd wait for the redesign with built in Bluetooth functionality and better battery life in portable mode. I'm pretty sure Nintendo will launch new color schemes this year too.
No one knows when the redesign coming out, I agree with the societal above if I did not have my ps4 and switch and I was a new gamer I would get a switch because ps5 is coming soon I would never buy a old system that’s why I got my ps4 early same with switch I do not mind waiting for good games to come
@logic Does the Switch not already have Bluetooth? I'm sure that's how my phone connects to it when I transfer pokemon from Pokemon Go.
The Switch doesn't support audio over Bluetooth, which is what people are referring to when they talk about a Switch with built-in Bluetooth functionality.
@games. That would make sense. Thanks bud.
The PS4 doesn't support Bluetooth speaker too, is it why my JBL extreme one is not connect to it, which is disappointed.
@reddevil It doesn't that's true, but it does have a USB port for headsets with a dongle. Which isn't ideal, but better than nothing.
This article reeks of fanboy-ism. Everything in it is debatable. Truths it can go everywhere with you and online is 20 bucks. One thing that sticks out it mentions while the competition is focused on 4k nintendo is focused on game design, really cause I recall ps4 having some amazing games which well had amazing game design.
PS has some great games, but their main focus is their single player games. Which is great but IMO it would be great if they worked on some multiplayer games. IMO their games didn't get good until uncharted 4 and God of war released. However if you enjoy the single player life there really isn't a better console to play some high quality games.
Im sure they have something for fans of multi player games. Me personally I dont like multiplayer games, I enjoy single player games. SO the ps4 is perfect for me.
@shinoff2183 it's typical Nintendo fanboys motto. Nintendo prioritize gameplay over graphics they said. it's like...for them, games with great graphics can't have great gameplay SMH! it's painful for them to admit that other great games on other consoles have great gameplay while looking stunning because Nintendo chickened out from the graphic competition with the fall of the GC. so now they are chanting "Nintendo is all about gameplay" mantra as if other devs only focusing on graphics and not gameplay! I'm not a fan of Nintendo's games. I think I've played too much of them when I was younger and there are very little evolution to their games for me to even care anymore. I understand they have their fans but I can't stand these fanboys calling other games inferior in gameplay like some kind of masterrace!
I agree with most of what you said, except I still enjoy nintendo first party games, like mario, donkey kong, zelda, etc. I dont play pokemon though. Aside from atari games, mario bros was the first game I ever played and it stuck with me. I prefer playstation but will still buy nintendo for first party stuff. Im not a fan of the portable stuff I just play docked if I play switch.
I would not want a Switch for my primary console. I have X1X for that. As a second console, its fantastic. In fact I have not played X1X, since I picked Switch up 2 weeks ago. Accepts for Er (cough,cough) Crackdown 3. Someone please explain why the cloud is needed, for a game that is 13MB? I played for 20 min, yawn. I will play more later.
PS4/PC is the way to go for sure. Switch is fantastic for playing on the toilet.
You must takes a long time to take a shit lol
PS4 Pro and Switch. Sony and Nintendo are the perfect pair of consoles.
First of all I would never buy a Switch over a PS4. I would buy it additionally to a PS4. How in God's name am I going to miss games like The Last of Us 2, Days Gone, Dreams, Ghost of Tsushima, Bloodborne, God of War? That's crazy. Second, the only thing that would make me buy a Switch is a proper, mature, serious and new Metroid Prime game.
I Have a PS4 and I might buy a Switch down the road, but instead, is a bit of a stretch. I love PS4 exclusives and that alone is enough to buy a PS4 over the Switch. And I have grown out of Mario type kiddie games.
"It's affordable" The console might be but the majority of games are overpriced compared to ps4/xbox.
And the amount of additional controllers as well as stuff like Ethernet adapter and sometimes required external storage also drags up the price
who doesn't have a ps4?
A lot of people since the console continues to sell well
The Switch is Nintendos best ever console. I couldn't recommend one enough. The exclusives line up is truly ridiculous as well.
Because of all those fresh new franchises......
Really bad list. Like I've seen the best 5 or so reasons to get X over Y. But that list was just crap, and unconvincing. It's affordable, well it kinda is and kinda isn't. You spend a high price, just to be able to buy experience software. If you're looking to save money, the original Xbox > PS4 > one s > switch > pro > one X The Xbox is the better bang for your buck due to cheaper games digitally and physical, plus Bc. The switch is my most unused console out side the PS4 pro and switch. Games are just cheaper on the ps4, so I tend to find bargains for those games more often than on the Nintendo console. If you could get decent AAA games used for about 10-20 bucks on the switch. Thats when it'll be worth picking up.
I have one for not to buy Switch. I'm not a kid.
Wow. You should be a writer with your vivid wordplay.
Number 6 is not a reason to buy a switch.
20.00 a year to play old ass games you can play for free on your PC or smartphone, and who on earth is going to skip games like God of war, horizon, death stranding, spiderman, days gone, resident evil 2, kingdom hearts, witcher 3 and so on and so forth for yet more Mario and Zelda?? Dude you must be high as a kite.
If you're good at adulting, you can own all three. Also, buy Octopath Traveler. Not only is it an incredible RPG with a trench-deep battle system and a mind-blowing soundtrack, it's a complete game. No content was cut for DLC and everything comes together so nicely.
I only see Switch as a complimentary system not as a primary system
Free games 👀👀
Switch is starting to get a great library together, but it's just not for me. Dont really have the need or desire to own one.
Do u like last gen games? Do hike bad versions of current gen games? If so switch is for you
I haven't bought a Switch yet due to my lack of interest for most of their exclusive library. The PS4 exclusive library along with the current multi-plats are the best imo due to most of it's exclusives are catered to a more adult/mature community along with great stories,graphics & gameplay.I will say that the Switch exclusives Bayonetta 2&3,Marvel Alliance 3 & Astral Chain I have on my radar so far & if they can implement more heavy action games on it's console I may invest in a Switch & of course along with a price reduction.
I'd say If you have the money, get Switch if you already have PS4 or Xbox one. You can't own the Switch alone, without owning the ps4 or xbox one.
I bought a switch and it was the worst mistake of my life. I find most Nintendo games boring
...because you're 8.
When people upgrading to new console they want console with better specs and graphics why do I have to buy console got spec and graphics as old generation consoles ?
Id buy a switch in five years or so and a used one at that. Nintendo isn't worth the full price of admission with their handfull of good exclusives every gen
