Who cares? Super old tech still getting news on its beta form? Lol what

YodaCracker544d ago

It may be super old tech, but it’s still the best selling console every week.

new player forget that games is about joy and fun ..not graphics and vasuals

ONly cause its selling to two different markets. I bet if the 3ds was still being made the switch wouldnt be doing as well. Im not saying it would sell bad but sales would be cut.

I still dont play my switch but its only because i hate the cheap joy cons, Ive had to replace so many I just stopped playing. Its a shame thats still an issue. It does have some games Id like to play though. Ps is still the king in my house and someday ill buy one of those pro controller or whatever. Ive bought a few of the character controllers they have and those joysticks suck to.

Onisama your spot on it isnt always about the graphics games make a system

i dont care about how much money makes; nintendo wii sold loads and it was a horrible console with tons of shovelware. Sales mean nothing. I want good visuals PLUS good gameplay. there arent even that many fun games on my switch; I've been on a dry spell for a while; waiting for BOTW 2 and will likely grab Xenoblade 3. This doesn't change that it is a shame to see these games held back by its extremely dated tech.

No reason botw 1 should have as much stutter as it did.

@QueenBee, I don't hate my switch, I hate how it's held back. that's all. It is 2 generations behind in tech.

Looking Ahead: The Lingering Questions About the Next Mario Kart

VGChartz's Mark Nielsen: "10 years. It’s been almost 10 years since the last mainline release in the Mario Kart series. Mario Kart 8 came out for the Wii U in 2014 and became the best-selling game for the system by a sizeable margin, and later pulled the same magic trick on the Nintendo Switch under the stage name Deluxe. All in all, it's sold nearly 70 million copies over the last decade and is still selling like hot cakes to this day, so it’s no wonder Nintendo has been in no rush to replace it. However, with rumors of a new system being just around the corner, and reports a few years back that a new Mario Kart is indeed under way, it seems the era of 8 might very well be drawing to a close. It’s an exciting prospect to be sure, but after two Nintendo systems with Mario Kart 8 at their heart, a lot of questions remain about how Nintendo will choose to follow it up."

I hope they just keep building on Mario Kart 8; Add a track-creation tool, and probably open it up to more Nintendo IPs with new tracks and characters, so Metroid, Punch Out, Starfox, Animal Crossing, etc etc.

gold_drake38d ago

there wont be a new one until the switch 2 comes out.

nintendo needs their bangers early on
