i honestly don't get how this thing is still selling in 2023. "it has games!!!!" is not a solid argument either when every system has games and switch is the only one that lacks popular AAA titles.

        Harry Potter is on Switch and Switch already has the Street Fighter Collection so there's no need for yet another garbage 3D SF from NuCapcom.

        Also just because you don't have a PC doesn't mean console multiplats are not multiplats. Anyone with a brain is doing Switch + PC.

    I don't play any of those. The multiplats I'm most looking forward to this year are Labyrinth of Galleria, Silksong, and Ryza 3, all of which I'd prefer to play on my OLED. Add to that TotK and the Switch is still the best console on the market right now. The only thing I can think of that I wont be able to play on Switch or PC is Rebirth, but I'm not buying a PS5 for fucking Rebirth.

        What am I missing out on? I watched this past game awards and every big AAA game they showed looked like exactly the same generic thing and it all blended together. Even the big franchises I used to like are going so long between releases at this point it feels like it's not even worth getting excited about them, and after how bad FFXV, GTAV, and Skyrim were those franchises are basically dead to me until I see them do something different. I'll probably play the new Ys and Disgaea before the next GTA or Elder Scrolls, and the last Ys and Disgaea were pretty lackluster.

    Because the hybrid concept is appealing and the library of exclusive games is good, it's not rocket science. The lack of third-party AAA games is only going to start hurting from this year onwards, because the last 2 years have been pretty uneventful aside from a couple of games like Elden Ring.

                Because being down 20% YOY entering its 7th year on the market is normal and expected. Also when that 20% drop means its still selling almost 20 million units in its 6th year, its a sign of strong late life market performance.

        I'm not him but they didn't actually announce that it was a "leak." It came from a reputable source but leaks about Nintendo have not had the best track record so let's wait for their actual projections first.

    Clearing up the switch sales trends:
    >1
    Switch sales are absolutely declining. This is not just because of covid, because it's been a very consistent and gradual drop, it's just declining demand due to market saturation.
    >2
    They're still pretty high, likely finishing this year around 18-19 million

    Nintendo can do fine in 2023, selling 14-15 million and then launch a successor in 2024.

    The amount of hate I have for the switch is boundless. This system is wildly successful for no reason. People that I’ve never associated with video games in my life have a switch and these people just buy en masse any mediocre game made for it, ensuring the success of anything released on it.

    Any game sold in this is a guaranteed success and will be the best selling entry of its respective series. It’s nice for things like Metroid but sucks for series that already sell like hotcakes like Pokemon because it’ll only further encourage decline in quality for popular game series that don’t have to try anymore.

    This thing is essentially Nintendo’s console and handheld market combined into one, so if anything it should have twice the library of the 3DS or Wii at the end of its life (next year?) but it just somehow has maybe half of one of those system’s games, and a good portion of the first party games in the switch aren’t even original, theyre Wii U ports.

    The system is soulless and has no personality or customization . Never thought I’d miss something like themes from the 3S, and its handling of virtual console is fucking trash and is just another sad attempt at getting subscriptions out of people somehow. It’s even more insulting because their “online” games use the shittiest servers and the virtual console library is puny at that.

    I could say more but I don’t really want to go on more of a tangent. This thing sucks
