I would like to see a new one. It's been three years I'm ready for an upgrade lol

SullysCigar43d ago

Rumours are for next year, I believe. At least for a Pro if not an overhaul as such.

indysurfn43d ago

Yeah pro rumores are for early 2021

One thing that article did NOT mention is that Monster boy is at 120 FPS! Not just native 4k.
The developer did not say the SWITCH would not be 4k or 120FPS for SwitCH!

Question Is if zelda will be exclusive to it like they did with some new 3ds games at launch.. Could be the case.

mikeslemonade42d ago

Too little too late for Nintendo. The pro should have been out already.

It takes the sequel of a game to come out in three years and y’all want a whole new system. Lol this generation I tel u

Outlawzz43d ago

Yes, I want to be in this generation not the last one. The switch launched with outdated tech it's simple as that, no matter how much you want to cling to yours.

That said, nintendo is probably on your side, they are slowest to adapt to anything.

I havent own a nintendo console since N64

FinalFantasyFanatic43d ago

I know, it's the same with the PS4 and Xbox one, people just want shiny new things all the time and I don't understand it (own something for two or three years, buy a new one). I honestly thing they want consoles to be treated like phones where you upgrade every other year even if there's no significant difference.

Outlawzz by technicals, Switch is actually 9th gen with PS5 and XSX/S so even if you say that/ They were okay specs for when it released. If they rush a next system it'll just be the same situation again. It's better they wait it out a bit

Outlawzz43d ago

@unself so your commenting on a switch article and don't even have the product or support the company. Trolls will be trolls I guess*Facepalm*

Yea nintendo is stuck in this awkward in between generations type thing they set themselves up with. So that when they put new tech in it's already behind the competition. It actually makes sense to wait from that perspective.

I just feel if the switch had better specs closer to ps4 or xb1 at release it wouldn't be as much of an issue for me personally since I feel the graphics for ps4 are more than adequate and don't hugely limit developers, so much so, that I don't feel the need to upgrade to ps5 or series x just yet. Switch specs I feel really do hinder many of the bigger developers.

UnSelf42d ago

so i have to own the system just to speak on it? I cant just keep up with current news until i find something worth my money, huh

Outlawzz42d ago (Edited 42d ago )

Of course you can. But Your comment was obnoxious, generalized, and did nothing to spark an actual conversation about the topic. It's the equivalent of a spam comment.

I’m mainly waiting on an achievement system where Mario Coins and Stars are the trophies

-Foxtrot43d ago

If they have a portable only Switch out now with joycons attatched and they have their standard portable/home console Switch then I would love to see a home console only Switch.

Pro Controller / Updated Gamecube Controller

Bigger Memory

Little bit more powerful which allows developers to focus on home Switch versions if they want

Hope so, then they stop with the ports.. Current switch is wii u 1.5 nothing more.. Port machine..

whitbyfox43d ago

Mario Odyssey 97 metacritic.

No single Sony or Microsoft exclusive is higher.

PS4 is port machine bioshock collection, nathan drake collection, resident evil collection, devil may cry collection, gta collection, etc etc.

TheScotsman43d ago

Mate, I don't often comment but your talking nonsense. Did you miss that last 7 years of awesome ps4 exclusive?

bouzebbal43d ago (Edited 43d ago )

I never said Nintendo games were bad, I said switch was a port machine. Learn to understand what you're reading.

The question is, what would switch have left if you take wii u ports away??? Zelda Mario U luigi U Mario kart toad... So don't go there.. PS4 has lots of 1st party exclusives.

Father__Merrin43d ago

Switch is a port machine it's not worth it for core gamers.

mkis00743d ago (Edited 43d ago )

I'll take new IP's over yet another Mario, Zelda, Kirby, Donkey Kong game thank you. It's like Nintendo is afraid that no one will like anything but their old IP's.

For every sequel Playstation gave us this gen, they also gave us a new IP. Ratchet=Bloodborne. God of war= Horizon Zero Dawn. Infamous SS=Days Gone. The Last of Us=Ghost of Tsushima...Then there is Until Dawn, Astro Bot, Detroit, The last Guardian.

Left out a bunch of games like Spider-man to make my point. Take away ports and sequels on switch and what do you have? Ooya?

oh and ps4 has 13 exclusives in their top 50 while switch has 10...Interesting how we can make the goal whatever we want huh? Above an 85 on meta everything is gravy.

Yay!!! You are right, one original high score game is all you need for a console. /s

Zelda is a port, Mario Kart is a port... and you have a Pikmin 3...

I know there are a few more, but seriously lacking..., the new Mario Kart is a cool concept, but it will get old fast, how many people can constantly reserve enough space at their home for the whole track? And the development time could have been sent to Mario Kart 9

Sure not every game there is amazing (though certainly many of them are and just a few are mediocre or bad), but they are certainly not ports.

You might not like those games, but saying the switch only has ports is just straight up ignorance, not to mention seeing how practically no one bought a WiiU, those ports are finding quite a few dozens of millions of people that never had a chance to play them before

Chriswynnetbh43d ago

Lol you can't use games that are years away for an argument about the Switch's current library that's like more than half your list that doesn't count at all. And if you're a Wii U owner like myself there is zero reason to buy a Switch considering most of the games worth playing ARE ports. Until they can match Xbox/ps4 in terms of graphic power and start delivering well done games in 4k I just see no reason to own a switch if you own a Wii U

--Onilink--43d ago (Edited 43d ago )


There are 8 upcoming games out of 41 on that list (42 if you count daemonXmachina which i forgot about).

How is that more than half? And thats leaving aside that upcoming games are just as important as the ones already out when looking at whether a console is worth a purchase.

Even if you take out the upcoming games from those 42, there are still 36 additional exclusives that are NOT ports of anything on that list

It will certainly be inferior to the xbox serie s... But anyway People will not complain in this case that it will be holding back the entire gen... Pffff

Games1st43d ago

Switch gets it's own build months or years later.
