With Switch 2 Coming, Portable Devices Could Be The Future From Here On

Thanks to their portability, steadily advancing hardware, and superb library, portable gaming devices might become the dominant choice soon.

Consoles, desktops, and handhelds are all here to stay. Good to have all these options.

Hope not.
I'm fine they're around, but the day it makes my gaming experience worse on home consoles is when I will hure someone to burn down Nintendo.

Nintendo almost suceeded destroying gaming with Wii.
Due to amazing sales for people who didn't knew better, Sony started on the Move Controllers and MS on the Kinect.
Luckily enough they both flopped and they went back to focus on the right things.

"Nintendo almost suceeded destroying gaming with Wii."
LMAO! Way to be hyperbolic.

It's very possible especially with Nintendo as games performance continues to improve in the handheld scene.

No. Portable has been around since forever. It's a supplement to a traditional console. Will get a switch 2, but I anticipate that I will be playing it in bed like the current switch.

Unless Nintendo fixes their online, shopping, achievements and other key quality of life features that's a no. It will be worth buying for a specific handful of games like most Ninetndo systems and not much beyond that. I don't doubt it will be in the running for the best selling system of all time, but, it will still be the side action and not the platform to move in with.

Best JRPG series of the last 5 years imo

repsahj17h ago

I agree 100%. My top JRPG so far, together with Baldurs Gate 3 and FF16.

autobotdan16h ago(Edited 15h ago)

There is no together at the top. There is only one top jrpg series. Xenoblade Chronicles series is alone at the top

raWfodog13h ago(Edited 13h ago)

I like the Xenoblades series but my ‘top’ series would be either the Trails series or Persona series. Just too many good games for me to just pick one series though, so I say play them all lol.

You are hereby excommunicated the church of Xenoblade Chronocology

I'm not huge into JRPGs, but my favorite is easily the Persona series. It's all opinion though. Xenoblade is a great series.
