It's a shame switch is off to a good start. I hope all third parties jump on board.

Third parties had every reason to feel this way with what the wiiu was, but that was then and they should have looked at the switch with fresh eyes and not come in with past baggage. Isn't that what we are told to do when we leave a bad relationship and start a new one??

Third parties are hypocrites.

Bad relationships often don't cost millions of dollars in losses...

You must not watch many court programs.XD

Anyways, I don't really disagree with either of you.
Bleu is right that the Switch shouldn't be judged on the demerits of the Wii U, but you're also right in saying that third parties aren't wrong to be cautious, after two gens where their sort of games didn't really sell on Nintendo's home consoles. [With a few exceptions, like Bayonetta 2]

The Switch is just proof that times and circumstances both can change in a blink, and those who adapt fastest reap the bigger rewards for doing so.

Have you seen any reality tv show or sports couple or Hollywood couple or political couple whose laundry has been aired out. Its as normal as the days of the week. That is why folks sign prenuptial agreement.

Well sure, maybe if you are famous and are super rich divorces can be bad. Prenups are the result in rich people getting screwed out of millions... unfortunately there is no such thing as a Prenup for the gaming industry.

I suspect, other than a few third party exclusives nobody is gonna buy third party games on the switch. Who in their right mind would choose to play Doom on a switch? OK if you only have a switch, but even then. I will only ever be buying 1st party Nintendo stuff and, as I say, the occasional third party exclusive. That's usually the case for Nintendo machines, isn't it?

Or maybe someone wants to play Doom on the bus.

CaptainN437d ago

You are crazy !! Doom on the go is a huge plus and many people are interested in having a shooter like that on Switch.
