          They can just say (reasonably) that the gamign market is larger now than it was back then, so 150 million then was more impressive than 150 million now.

          Of course the real reason in the disc readers in the PS2 were faulty as frick, resulting in Sony selling replacement PS2s to dumbasses who re-bought it over and over.

        Switch is gonna sell maybe 13 million units this year, leading to about 155 million units sold total
        If Nintendo wanted to, they could drop the price of the base Switch and start selling in SEA and South America again to push over that 160 or even 165 million benchmark

            Fair but I think that Nintendo already factored that sort of conservative estimate into their expectations
            The real question is about how sales will be after the Switch 2 is revealed formally. The degree of difference and the amount of cross-gen titles will affect how long the Switch's tail will be

          Well and I also think he points out something interesting that a big driving factor of the tendency of Nintendo systems to rely on gimmicks in the past was partially due to how fast hardware was developing and that staying in the cutting edge was outside of their price point. But nowadays? The cost of a lot of the mid to high end hardware is *relatively* cheaper, at least in terms of new architecture and new techniques.
          Switch 2 being just a beefier Switch with newer tech and DLSS and shit makes sense if it’s right in line with Nintendo’s budget

            eGPU will take a high cost of production, but considering their philosophy, some “lateral thinking with withered technology” thing that I think will be hilarious but neat to have is “scroll wheel shoulder buttons” which Sakurai has been wanted for years. eGPU for Switch 2 is also possible since they already create the mechanism on it (according to the patent).

          Even back then games usually took 3-4 years to make. So Iwata is responsible for Nintendo's output and consoles from around 2006. He inherited the gamecube - he didn't build it. The Wii and DS were his babies.

        Iwata was a fricking joke as CEO. The guy nearly cratered their company. He was a one hit pony with the DS and tried to ride that out. That DS success managed to give the Wii a few good years and keep the 3DS from totally flopping but the writing was on the wall. His philosophy of video games as toys was a failure, it was always going to fail. Getting a touch screen before everyone else was the one thing that kept it from bombing entirely.

            Their console has a broad audience so they do still make some games explicitly for children, but not a lot recently. Most of their recent games have been clearly targeted at adults, They sure as frick aren't remaking a gamecube game to sell to 8 year olds. But yeah they got kids games, like Peach or Yoshi or Kirby.

              Aside from arguably their RPG franchises (Xenoblade/Fire Emblem), what games were targeted for older audiences? Bayonetta 3 and Metroid Prime...what else? Seems mostly kid-oriented games to me.

                It's not about being able to play the game or not, but enjoying it. A child will find nothing fulfilling whatsoever in trying to finish a challenge 3 seconds faster to get a platinum medal. A young kid will immediately be turned off by the violence and an older kid will be hit with their ADHD and get bored of the focus around planning instead of action.

                Yes, Pikmin 1 is an absolute braindead game a 6 year old could easily complete in a few hours. I'm not sure how much they'd enjoy it, because the game sucks, but it's definitely not outside the realm of a child.

                You have never played Pikmin 4.
                The majority of the game is spent in what are called dandori challenges. Dandori roughly translates to planning. You're given a room with a bunch of puzzles and a time limit and have to discover the most efficient way to solve those puzzles to complete the overall challenge. There's very little action and you're expected to keep repeating the trials over and over to shave off a few seconds. It's essentially a speedrunning game.

                Again, you think kids are morons who can't enjoy difficulty of puzzles. That's not how they are.

                I was specifically talking about young children in regards to the violence. Pokemon has only cartoon violence where no one dies or is injured, whereas in Pikmin they die and their souls leave their bodies.

                In regards to older children the issue is the gameplay is very slow and based around planning and strategic thinking. It's not a game for kids.

    It's sad, in a way. They've cornered themselves with the portable aspect and cant back out of it. We'll never get another "wii" like console out of nintendo again. It will always have to be hybrid portable.

    I'm fine with Nintendo settling on the Switch as a base hardware prospect. It capitalizes on Nintendo's unique position of having a hand in the console race, but also having an untouchable position in the portable space. It pretty much solves their place in the world, and the only reason to abandon that is to be different for the sake of being different. So yeah, Nintendo might actually mix it up, but if they chose this idea to settle on then it wouldn't be the dumbest decision they've ever made.

      There's no point to that actual application, the Wii already did this. I say this as one of the 10 people who prostrated himself to play Fatal Frame 5 on WiiU because, unlike your gif, HOLY SHIT I CAN HOLD THE CAMERA OBSCURA IN REAL LIFE.

        Fatal Frame 5 owner here. Within the first hour i switched the controls from Wii U gamepad as the camera obscura to using the controls like in the earlier games. The gyro was finnikey and half your button presses were to reset the gyro orientation. Also I just simply could not be scared of ghosts on a 5 inch screen when i was used to seeing them on a my 47 incher on previous games.

          To each their own. I played through it twice on WiiU with those controls and enjoyed it. I did play it again with a more conservative control scheme on Switch, though. Probably could do it like WiiU again in handheld mode.

      Am I supposed to be upset by this?

      Depends how strong the upgrade will actually be. The new 3ds didn't really upgrade the hardware that much and old games ran about as well as they did on the new one. It also became very confusing because you had some games like xeno chronicles that only ran on the new 3ds. Can imagine what the 3rd party scene is going to be like with people now having to advertise the game will only run on the new switch because the old one just isn't good enough.
      Honestly with this announcement I am now expecting the worst and anticipating a "new 3ds" tier upgrade.

        DS to Lite is very much a sidegrade, albeit an incredibly aesthetic one. GB to GBC is more of an actual upgrade, or DS to DSi to keep the comparison. Lite is great, but also a wholly aesthetic model shift.

    Genuine question for Nitentards but why would Nintendo do anything better but the bare-minimum? They have zero reason to make a new console nor make it even close to powerful, and I would not be surprised if this can't play Switch games and instead you'll have to buy them AGAIN or or pay for some stupid licence to be able to play your Switch games on the Switch 2.

    See, this is why Sony is far superior to Nintendo. Sony makes actual games that respect your intelligence and your time. They are thought provocking, emotional masterpieces that challenge your understanding of videogames and in some cases, such as the Last of Us, l the world around us.

    Where as Nintendo's games are nothing but cheap children's toys. Toya that break within a minute of playtime. Pokemon Scat and Vomit were some of the worst games ever made. Nintendo gave GameFreak the ok to release those games in their current states. They should all be ashamed. Xenoblade 3 was some of the most generic weeb dogshit ever produced that was riding off the back of Genshin Impact. Totk was a complete reskin made by a bunch of no talent developers. And don't get me started on Smash Ultimate, a lazy cashgrab made by a washed up hack and his interns.

    The Switch 2 is going to be the biggest flop in all of gaming. I will laugh when it comes out with zero games and flops hard. I will be sitting pretty playing on my PS5 pro when it happens.

      The PS4 pro was about 2.5x stronger than the PS4. The Switch 2 is around 10x stronger than the switch (source: the nvidia hack). This is going to be the largest leap in hardware in decades. Even with diminishing returns it will still be quite impressive.

          It will be similar to a steam deck in handheld, which is fine, that's the point of diminishing returns on an 8 inch screen anyway. In docked it will be quite a lot stronger.

        Everyone was sure the Switch would be a fully clocked X2 and it ended up being a fractionally clocked X1. Switch 2 will be similar, some tangential SoC that is well underclocked because otherwise it will eat batteries and overheat because the paper specs are purely theoretical and not designed for the TDP of a tablet, even when docked

          In the case of the Switch, the GPU was speculated by people online. With the switch 2, it's from a hack of nvidia.

          There is a similar example of that behavior, where you have people speculating it will be the very advanced 4nm process, but it wont be and those people will wind up disappointed. But in the end it is the Orin and it's a beast compared to the Switch's processor.

            It wasn't speculation. There were multiple leaks from developers and pictures allegedly coming from FoxConn confirming details of the SoC, and this was after production actually started so it was actually credible. The Nvidia breach, on the other hand, is completely missing context. The Switch 2 isn't in production yet. So as far as we know the specifications aligning with Orin are tenatitive, and in all likelihood, like the Switch's SoC, it will be a custom iteration with customer core config etc. I 100% guarantee it will be substantially weaker than what you think it will be. It isn't a stock T234. Not clocks, not config. You're setting yourself up for disappointment or you're a moronic shill

              No, we know which Orin it is from the hack. It's the AGX Orin, made for self driving cars. The chip is 5tflops but will obviously be underclocked. As to how much it will be underclocked we can only speculate. If it's switch like, somewhere between 3-3.5tflops. They could technically go higher or lower but they probably don't want to rock the boat much after selling 140m units.

      Delaying BotW to the switch made sense because the switch was similar in power to a Wii U. The switch 2 is vastly stronger than the switch so even running a switch 1 game at a higher resolution is gonna look unimpressive. Especially because you cant really see the higher resolution in a youtube demo of the game.

      They're holding off as long as possible to compress the game release schedule. They want to stack the first 2-3 years like they did with the switch so that everyone feels like they need to buy it immediately. Once a console starts succeeding it doesn't stop, because it becomes a cultural phenomenon and begins to self spread. Those initial years are all that matter. So the later they release it the more games they can cram in that window. A 2025 release now means Smash bros can be done in year 2. It means Zelda can be ready in year 4. It means Animal Crossing is there year 2-3, etc.

      It doesn't need hall effect. It wont effect them if the joycon analog sticks break down if it takes a reasonable amount of time. With the switch, it's like 2 years, which means you need 3-4 pairs over the generation. If they can get the duration up to 5-6 years, it will be fine for most people, especially if Nintendo offers repairs.

      The way to do this is to just make them bigger. Bigger analog sticks means more durable.

                Sorry, I wasn't aware. But I will point out that DLSS is way better on lower end hardware like the switch 2. FSR is more comparable on high end PC rigs. The difference is how they work. DLSS uses a seperate part whereas FSR uses the normal GPU. Why this matters at the low end is because the system is already struggling to have enough GPU power to render the scene before spending more on upscaling.

      If you look at, say, an Orin NX 8GB model, you see it hit about 1.5 TFLOPS of theoretical GPU power. But if you pair that with both Nintendo's bespoke optimizations and an AI upscaling, you could probably get a respectable 4K30 FPS out of the thing for dedicated titles

          I think it would be the first portable gaming system to have it, but I consider omitting laptops to be an arbitrary exclusion when talking about a technology being revolutionary. There is nothing revolutionary about DLSS in a portable gaming device since there is nothing special about portable gaming devices that prevented DLSS before. It was just that unlike with laptops, no manufacturer chose to go with NVIDIA, but that wasn't due to any technobarrier that had to be overcome or anything.

    There's nothing wrong with a safe follow-up, as the PS2 will attest, and too much innovation too fast can be harmful, as was the case with the WiiU and Virtual Boy - although those basically got refined do-overs/spiritual successors in the Switch and 3DS respectively. I think this is a good strategy: give the team more time to think of unique and interesting ideas and flesh them out, test the practical applications and iron out wrinkles before they're thrown out stillborn into the marketplace. In the meantime, a well-handled part 2 of an established brand can continue the legacy and keep the lights on even if it isn't quite as rousing a success as the first time (see also: Super Nintendo, Gameboy Advance, 3DS)

      They won't. They went full soulless and got rewarded in spades after the Wii U was a massive flop. It's going to be another barebones interface.

    Will Twilight Princess/Wind Waker be released before this console's release, or alongside it?

          It's hilarious to me that on top of not being able to backup saves yourself, you can't even do it for some games via cloud storage even if you pay for it. Like your Switch gets lost or broken and you lose all your Pokemon saves with literally nothing you could have done to have a failsafe.

          Isn't that why Denuvo started getting into the console market and even started on a Switch version of their anti-piracy? Because otherwise, it would seem like a waste of effort to me if they don't actually use it.

            That was Denuvo proposing their shit to other devs/publishers, not a nintendo initiative.

            People keep saying this and yet I haven't encountered any Switch games I couldn't pirate

      A console-killing gimmick like the Wii U gamepad.

      >what were people expecting.
      A generational leap in hardware. Nintendo's first party games are struggling to run on the Switch at 720p and sometimes 30FPS.
      The jump from every generation has felt significant in visuals asides Wii U > Switch and if the Switch Pro/2 is barely an upgrade we're looking at upwards of 20 years of the same-looking graphics and artstyles. That's not even starting on the power difference between Xbox/Sony and Nintendo getting even greater. Third party support is going to go from last generation ports to two generations ago ports because the Switch Pro won't be able to handle last generation's ports anymore.

        Not him, but isn't it going to be a jump from PS3 power to somewhere between a PS4 and PS4 Pro in power?

          Yes. It's the biggest jump since 64->GC for Nintendo easily. The guy you are replying to seems to be unaware of the Nvidia hack.

    >After all this time the Switch Pro rumors were real
    >Hence why Activision said it was on-par with the PS4/Xbox One, it's literally just a more powerful Switch
    >7-8 more years of not getting major games because the Switch Pro can't run current third parties
    Disappointing if true. I was hoping for at least stronger than the Steam Deck and that portable Elden Ring looking/running good may be a thing.

      To be fair, at least for the moment, aren't most third-party game still cross-gen (for some reason)? As long as they still support PS4 version, it should work on the new Switch.
      Obviously, when they actually fully move to PS5 only and up, that'll be a different story though.

    >The Switch 2 isnt a new console and is just a successor to the switc
    what is the difference between those 2?

      People are interpreting it as {new form factor maybe with new primary gimmick as well} vs {just the Switch but better, like how every Playstation is just like the prior one, but with improved features and specs}

    Switch is ok, just fricking underpowered for using decade old hardware and planned obsolecense joycons.

    Obviously their next console has to do the dual use shtick, because it's untenable for Nintendo to become a home-console only platform (due to Japan's commuter culture).
    What would be the alternative? The reintroduction of proper handhelds? What shall it be called, Nu Gameboy? Playtwink? That era is over.

    I think it might be good that nintendo doesnt try to reinvent the wheel constantly, every time if it's not necessary.

    GBA wasnt a major shift from GB and 3DS wasnt a major shift from DS, and they were good. I doubt switch 2 will sell as good as switch though. Maybe it depends on how hard the competition keeps shitting the bed, and if they make enough good games for it.
