        Highly unlikely they'll make the game a PS4 or PS5 exclusive. Much more likely they'll just wait until Nintendo releases a system powerful enough for UE5. Which really shouldn't be too hard if they solve the CPU issue that the Switch has been having

            So they properly tone back the excess of modules that get roped into every export? So it's not packing a shit ton of invisible CPU-intensive stuff?
            Thank god

            I bet the reason they couldn't announce platforms for DQXII at the announcement stream is because it's being developed/targeted for the Switch successor

            Very likely. They also probably hadn't touched UE5 much when they made the announcement, so maybe they'll have an easier time eking performance out of the current Switch

            Doubt it, we're still a few years off from a switch successor.

            Actually more likely than you think. The Switch will be 6 years old this month. That's the historical average for time between console releases in a given series of systems. At most, I'd say we're looking at 6.5 years or Holiday season 2023 before we see the Switch 2

                And the presence of the T239 leaks suggests that Nintendo has likely already settled on a chip and Nvidia is working on the API now.

                It kind of does. Instead of just going with the wildly successful switch they rather sell out to western piggu...even though the switch is holding a good lead in the USA, UK, etc. so focusing on the west will still be minimal unless they go super hard on pc or keep putting things on the switch.

                Switch is already falling to third on NPD because supply for Xbox and PS5 are increasing.

                It's just going to continue because Sony also has large games planned for March like Spiderman. That's going to give Zelda a run for it's money.

                For one having more customers in the global market doesn't mean that their games will change if their games as is are what's selling in the West.
                Two, it has nothing to do with platforms whatsoever and even then they would want to go with the current most popular platform which is the switch.

                I don't think a game like forspoken will do good in the west or in japan. And anyhow this 'muh global market shift' comes what? six months after square's ceo stated they lost their way in becoming to western developer wise? Followed by selling their western devs?
                If you people can't see something fucky is going on not sure what to tell you. Square isn't telling us everything at the least. Not sure about capcom though.

                Insomniac's Spiderman is probably one of the best selling IPs next to Sony's own original titles.

                You had a large turnover where most people bought Forbidden West on PS5 than PS4 and the difference between how many people are playing these games on PS4 is widening since many have switched over to PS5.

                God of War Ragnarok is expected to be almost entirely bought on the PS5.

                If you're somehow insinuating that Spiderman an IP that has over 70 years of history does not have a large pre-installed fanbase and Sony somehow needs to beg in order for people to play it, that's ridiculous. The IP already has been making a killing with marvel merch for decades. You can compare the prior spiderman game sales to the one Insomniac made, Insomniac made a better spider man game and the previous ones were made while sony still had the IP under it's belt too.

                So much of what you're saying is wrong.
                For one, while spiderman is marvel's most popular comic hero he was never on par with video game icons to put that into perspective.
                >The IP already has been making a killing with marvel merch for decades
                That's because of the nature of merchandise. For example say you have an avid fan of Spiderman, at most he'll buy one copy of the comic (not counting Variants), two depending on if he wants to keep a mint copy, and one copy of each movie and game. With merch you can see people buying an insane amount
                A Spiderman water gun
                One of those silly string web shooters
                Multiple figures of Spiderman and his rogues
                Spiderman posters
                Spiderman bed sheets
                Spiderman everything
                Merch is generally a bad indicator because one person can buy as many of the unique products as they like.
                >Insomniac made a better spider man game and the previous ones were made while sony still had the IP under it's belt too.
                Not only is Insomniac's game worse than 2 and Ultimate which is only showing your bias towards Sony you're also ignoring why it sold so much more which I said in my previous post.

                If you use a Steamdeck, the difference is night and day compared to the switch in portable mode. Steamdeck even at it's highest tier is reasonably priced for what you're getting. I could see Nintendo introducing a similar price structure and amount, especially if they decide to offer a portable version and a traditional console version for their next console.

But even then as more new games come out I don't see how they can do much to get most games to run around the switches battery life unless it costs even more

                >If you use a Steamdeck, the difference is night and day compared to the switch in portable mode
                For the majority of japanese games, it makes absolutely no difference between the two.
                also the Steamdeck itself is expensive in Japan, definitely enthusiast-tier and not for the overall public.

                I somewhat doubt it's far different from the european prices in PC hardware parts when not taking account of the difference in currency values, even if I admit I haven't look much into it. The biggest hurdle of PC building remains the same as it is the case anywhere else: searching what part is the most convenient & reliable of your use within your budget. But still, the smallest Deck model costs around the range of a PS5 there, while the highest model (with the anti-glare screen) is roughly the equivalent of 1k bucks.

                only lonely neckbeards give a shit about framerate this much, whereas people don't give a shit (unless the game was to reach 10fps and below) as long as the game is actually fun. Same for resolution.

                Ah, I remember that.
                I think that might simply mean that that's how long they plan to support the Switch, but it may not be the time between system releases.
                Consider that the last wii game came out in 2020 with Hawaii Shakedown
                I could see Nintendo meaning that the Switch will be supported until 2027 but it would be insane to me to think that they'd not release any new hardware until then. That would be in time for the PS6 and Xbox Series 2 to come out.
                My guess is that they might due some extreme cross-gen work to keep a couple of key games on Switch 1 as well as Switch 2.

                Fair enough though that's often because new games are geared to make use of a new hardware gimmick, so they're implicitly much harder to make backwards compatible. My expectation, if Nintendo were to go with Nvidia's T239, is that the new Switch's "gimmick" would be DLSS, meaning that if the games were adjusted to provide motion vector info, then they could run on both old Switch (with 1080p target) and new Switch (with 4K docked target) with relatively little in the way of needing to do a massive optimization overhaul

                And what part of 'name something beyond what was meantioned that could get heavy dlc' don't you get? Obviously they could do anything, but without throwing some ideas out it's barely even speculation. And again a major release like K FL didn't get dlc. Nor did Astral Cain. Bayonetta3 likely won't. Dread got a pittance. Maro Party Supar Stars got none despite people being certain it would. So no guarantees whatever is in the works will get dlc beyond pokemon probably and botw2.

                Getting off the woke topic for a moment I can't really see any similarity between that and Bayo.
                For one, Bayo isn't nearly that flashy and you can make out what you're doing.
                Two, there aren't usually any NPCs just aimlessly wandering.
                Three, there's more reactions to attacks and you can even knock enemies and bosses away.
                Four You can actually jump in Bayo

                Anywho, that's still not what woke means. Woke originally referred to over-representation of blacks but now it refers to anything outside of the norm like lgbt representation or any modern political discourse.
                Bayo can't be considered woke because it only has one black person who isn't the main character and has no lgbt or politics in its story.

                That said if you believe this then there isn't a single game that can't be considered political.

                The problem is that we're reaching a point where the consumers are dropping the developers because of their lack of optimization. Not to mention they're already complaining about bloated budgets

                No that only happened with Cyberpunk because it was a genuine broken piece of garbage. And they later recouped the loss once they fixed it.

                If a game is released in a genuine broken state people drop it, that's the only instance where it happens.

                Miyamoto said that Japan cannot support Nintendo, they opt for a sale of 2 million on average since some games will make more and some will make less , so games will need to cover for under performing ones.

                Nintendo does not focus on japan and instead primarily focuses on global releases.

                The mistake you're making is that you're under the assumption that supporting Western releases means changing when it just means ensuring Western releases get the same treatment as Eastern releases.

                If you cut out all other divisions outside of Japan Nintendo's Japanese sales could sustain them, but that's kind of against the point, other Japanese developers are moving their focus away from Japan and aiming to appeal to western audiences to the point that the western release is the one primarily developed (see forspoken) Nintendo are the one company that keep the Japanese version the primary version, Japanese sales can pay for most games costs by themselves.
                Bayonetta 1 didn't have Japanese VA, Nintendo is the reason subsequent games do and why there's a Japanese version of Bayonetta.

                Their humour, a lot of the themes and concepts are Japanese centric, they use a lot of distcintly Japanese settings, like Bowser's Castle in Mario Odyssey, or the ancient Sheika Designs in Breath of the Wild, Xenoblade uses Japanese conceptions of western ideas, like the Sin of Lust is completely different in Japanese philosophy compared to western philosophy, Mario has a lot of distinctly Japanese outfits, and international art releases still feature strangely Japanese things like Mario wearing traditiona Japanese in international post cards. Nintendo remains Japanese because they know that westerners like Japanese things, whereas other companies are trying to remove the Japanese things because they see western games being major successes and think that that's what people want.

                Gigantor was a different kind of robot. Starship troopers is also older than it.

                Starship troopers was originally made in the 1950's and then compiled into the book later on. It featured piloted robots.

                Hate to break it to you but the original Tetsujin manga that became Gigantor was published in 56. A few years before Troopers made it into Fantasy and Science.

    Persona was way more Japanese than dragon quest ever was since dragon quest is set in European Fantasy for the majority

    Monster Hunter world had a way higher learning curve than Dragon
    Quest

    And Square itself now targeting an international market for all its large games and IPs. Surely they’re seeing stuff like House of Dragons retain the Game of Thrones popularity and that there’s a demand for fantasy series in media, especially after Embracer group just bought up a ton of tabletop companies for billions and Hasbro also doing the same.

    Honestly seems really inevitable that 12 won’t be the one that has Dragon Quest break through majorly in western markets. Square seems to be banking on it already

            Because you can't take the games at face value. On the surface they present as bright, cartoony and give the air of a typical overarching shonen plot. But the games are broken down into smaller stories and a lot of them are dark and bitter sweet, filled with death, sacrifice and loss. The dynamic between the two are what makes the games compelling.

Everyone told them it was coming to Switch but they didn't listen and seethed so hard when it happened and had to backtrack two weeks of shitposting then went straight back to attacking Xbox and PC people.

        There's zero doubt in my mind that Eric will try to ignore this and claim that he didn't do anything then go on about how sales don't matter when Pokemon dominates.

    God of War Ranarok honestly stands to be a very big seller and will more than likely move playstation systems a whole bunch.

    Sony has really taken this third person genre that started on PS3 and really perfected the gameplay aspects over time. Now there's no longer unskippable cutscenes and things will play out while the player is in control of the character or it seamlessly switches from cutscene to character. There's very little downtime where you're just waiting for a scene to play out.

    God of War Ragnarok seems to be around 70 hours and people seem to really be loving the side quests and shit. And all of them are not story sequences which means it's going to be a very content rich 70 hours.

    Kek remember when nincels were literally celebrating that ps was gonna kill itself with the price hike? The hilarious thing about this, is that even if the shitty tablet faced "shortages" it still doesn't change the fact that the PS5 went on to sell more than what it usually does at almost 40k. With the narrative that goes on around here, you'd think the PS5 would've still sold less than the shitty tablet if it had shortage problems because it was averaging 15k before the price hike

      you missed this part
      >(1) Game titles, especially AAA, do not affect the success or failure of
      hardware in Japan. AAA is said to have a big impact on hardware sales, as the Sony Group worries about Activision Blizzard's CoD not being released on the PlayStation platform. However, PS4, which had Monster Hunter, Dragon Quest, and FF, was not successful, and Switch, which was at a stage where it could not be said that all these third-party titles were available, was very strong. It seems that third-party AAA has no influence on the success or failure of hardware in Japan.

    So it looks like the scenario where there are no Japanese games on Sony's console and No call of duty either isn't happening.

    And with the God of War sales it's going to push the PS5 closer to that 30 million sold mark sooner rather than later.

    Looks like the same RPG series I've been buying since the PS1 era are still going to be on the PS5 for years to come.

This was their entire output on the PS4 as a developer with team Asobi making the only game that didn't do badly and that was for VR.

            Are people also unaware that Kaz and everyone oother one of the Japanese higher ups wanted to do this after Japan bungled the fucking PS3?

    What does it mean appealing to global audience? Are they one country? Do the japs know what interests them or just add morons and fags and think this is what people want? Hoping to see Forspoken bomb.

      Global audience is a complete misnomer, it's really just for what people percieve as what the general western audience wnat, but that's so full of it, western audience doesn't know what it wants, they don't know what they don't know, Nintendo's strength is giving you something you don't know that you want.

      That's modern Ganker for you. We really should have tried harder with the gatekeeping back in 2013.

        Not him but it was quite literally inspired by a Japanese boy spelunking in Japanese caves.

          No it was inspired by already existing games

          Zelda was inspired by the plethora of already existing dungeon crawlers on PC. Zelda II tried to ape closer to that style which is why it's a real black sheep of the series.

      People buy Nintendo products for their corporate brand in much the same way people buy Apple.

      There's nothing American about Apple's products and American culture has very little to do with their output.

        You're thinking of Sony, that's why their software isn't selling.

          They had no first party releases last quarter but between Ragnarok, and TLOU having it's TV show premiere in January it's going to show a major rise in their first party software sales next report.

            Unlikely. PlayStation software sales in general are in the toilet and a TV show is just going to take attention away.

              Considering that a mid tier show like the Witcher boosted sales majorly for wild hunt, a more premium production backed by HBO will most definitely boost the sales of their TLOU PS5 Remake

                Which it didn't. Do you want to know what did though?
                The switch version that came out that year, turns out portability is a decent selling point.

        Rise of Ronin is being made by all members of Team Ninja, not one specific branch. Sony's Japan XDEV is helping on the project and they have an office in Japan itself to collaborate with the Japanese members of Team Ninja.

    Famitsu says otherwise. Imagine on release week getting out done by the guy whose move you stole and simplified.
