Dragon's Dogma on Switch Proves We Need More PS3 and Xbox 360 Ports

If you've still somehow missed Dragon's Dogma or its complete package Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, you have another chance to play it now. Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen is an excellent underrated game from Capcom that originally released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 back in 2012. The title was developed by a team led by Devil May Cry steward Hideaki Itsuno, taking inspiration from western RPGs, while still providing something wholly unique. It debuted to solid sales, and since then the publisher has been steadily porting it to other platforms, including PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and now Nintendo Switch.

Bring Tomb Raider and Rise of the Tomb Raider. Bring GTA V. Bring Batman Arkham Asylum, City and Origins. Bring Borderlands. The Switch can definitely handle all of these games.

Shouldnt we just play ps3 and xbox 360 games on the old gaming systems they were released on since they run better and look better most of the time and have Nintendo focus on releasing new games on it's new console. If they were backwards compatible it would be ok but more than 80 percent of the switches library consists of old ports and Nintendo should be mainly releasing new games. Ports are ok but its ridiculous having majority old games on the switch. I've never remembered a system mostly releasing old games on it's new system. New systems will have ports but switch is a different level of having ports

Last I checked I don't feel like lugging around a PS3 or 360.

The Wii and the Wii U didn't get a lot of the great games the PS360 got. Now Nintendo is getting 3rd party support again. There are a lot of people who stuck with Nintendo all these years and they missed out. It's good for them to be able to play the games they missed on top of new games.

"since they run better and look better most of the time"

No. They don't. The Switch is more powerful than both the PS3 and 360, has 8x the RAM, and has far more efficient APIs. The games do not look or run better on the PS3 or 360.

I love all these ports. I missed lots of games last gen and now I can play them all if they get to the switch. I'm never home so these ports are amazing for me.

You're on a Nintendo post, how dare you use logic and reason. Playstation was releasing ports.... they caught hell. Nintendo....its okay. Everything they do is okay. Because now ports are okay.

TheFirstClassic307d ago

Ports do not take up any of Nintendo's resources, that's not how that works. And switch ports always run better than they did last gen.

Profchaos307d ago

Why not lots of gamers that exclusively play Nintendo consoles never got most of these games as the Wii U was a bit barren.

I never got a chance to play Kingdom of Amalur... That'd be nice on the Switch

GameBoyColor306d ago

fantastic game actually! It'd be dope if we got a remaster.

I guess as long as 3rd party ports and HW sales are continue selling likes hot cakes, Nintendo will have little to no reason to announce any major 1st party exclusives or updates fpr currently announced 1st party games that have yet to come.

I hope for news and info blowout at this years E3 atleast.

TheFirstClassic307d ago

They don't "sell like hotcakes" only a few 3rd party games have broke a million on switch, it's nothing that would sustain a platform by itself. There's nothing with more ports, it's just supplemental.

Hmm. Is your rock comfy?

Dragons dogma is just a damn good game!

JonTheGod307d ago

I'll just wait for PS5 and play all my old PS3 games on that, thanks....... (hopefully)...

zacfoldor307d ago

You can play it on PS4 as well.

Brazz307d ago

Such underrated game.
Dragons Dogma >>> skyrim

zacfoldor307d ago

Absolutely. Especially without mods. DD is one of the best.

Teflon02307d ago

It really is underrated. I still remember the reveal trailer. Was one of the games I was most hyped about. My PS3 broke just before its release though. Was a sad time lol
