Should’ve just dropped last gen in the first place and put all the focus on current gen versions.

Agreed. At this point it's getting ridiculous! MOVE ON please! There are enough next gen consoles in the wild now to where this should no longer be necessary!

Lightning77177d ago

If the game releases broken on last gen then that's just yet another reason to completely avoid the last gen versions. If you can help it that is.

Last gen needs to leave.

Damn that is one hell of a title. At first glance I thought it was all up delayed again and was disappointed - but then realized it only mentioned last gen.

So they'll probably end up basically not functional. Especially on the Switch.

How the hell is the Switch getting a version?

MrNinosan176d ago

Because Switch gamers doesn't care about the quality and will buy millions anyways.

For real the latest Pokemon game was a broken mess and looked like an N64 game in some areas and they still bought it up in droves like it was crack.

I kinda think the people who buy games like this(conceptualized for much more powerful hardware) for Switch are usually A: mobile gamers who already LOVE the game and want their on-the-go fix and accept the downgrade, and B: the non-gamer parents, for the kids begging for the game without weighing out the cost over quality.

Initial Switch sales of this game are majority going to be B. With some hardcore mobile gaming Harry Potter fans.

Honestly, Who the fuck is spending $50+ on a game like this and plays at home on the Switch.. Absolutely boggles my mind.
To people who say "Switch is my only console" Bitch, you can you can get a PS4 for $120 easily if you tried. Shit, I got a Xbox One X for $140(1TB + controller) on Ebay.

With the tired old pOrTaBiLiTy reasoning.
