          probably yeah but you can "cope" by the fact it's going to be "impossible" to get a switch 2 for like 2 years so that can hold you over until they're readily available without having to beat out bots online.

      Switch was starting to badly slide out of relevance before Pikmin 4, Zelda and Mario Wonder came out. Nintendo can't afford any more big first party support for the Switch, scheduling-wise, so they can't do the same thing next year. If they buoyed the Switch with the next 3D Mario, Metroid Prime 4 and Mario Kart 9, then they are waiting a DECADE for the next Zelda game before they will have any opportunity to launch new hardware.

      Honestly? Not really. The sales just aren't in the dire straights they need to be to set the mood. People want to believe they are going down at a "fast pace", but its more like they are just, staying the same, but going up whenever games release.

      If I were to name things that would result in the Switch 2, they would be:
      A. Game releases change to majority trash, lazy 3rd party ports, or shovelware in general. If good 1st party games start to dry up, most users now would feel they played everything they could, and its time to go somewhere else for games, or start to save up for the 1st party games on the Switch 2.
      B. Game releases in general drying up. If we start getting like 1 game every 2 months, that would REALLY sink the sales.
      C. The guidence of pokemon, if the pokemon company suddenly goes "we have the next mainline game idea ready, but we aren't releasing it until we can release it for the switch 2" then Nintendo probably would say "well frick, guess we gotta make a switch 2 work out somehow"

        C may have been true at one point but sure as hell not anymore. All the switch pokemon games could have been Wii U games if not 3DS. GF stopped giving a frick and its starting to hurt Pokémon's image. Its really time to give another competent dev a hand at the IP, I can't think of a better way for them to introduce the 10th gen and/or potentially celebrate the series 30th anniversary.

    Nintendo wouldn't call it switch 2, because we all know how it worked for wii u.
    Perhaps the naming convention is very afraid if whatever they make flops the console without the right name.

    Xbox and Sony stopped giving a shit about what they call their consoles, but nintendo will have to since they have left an era of mistakes of 3ds naming, and wii naming.

        Wrong, the other big reason the Wii U failed is because the Wii branding was already dead.
        This is apparent in the later year sales of the Wii.

        The same was not true of the DS, which is why the 3DS did all right in spite of phones stealing away a good amount of its marketshare.

        The Switch 2 will do decently well as long as they keep on delivering quality software at a regular pace.

              >>BotW does not count!
              If it came out 2 years earlier as a Wii U exclusive then it would count. But 99% of people who played it, played it on Switch.

              got mainline releases on consoles before switch
              The huge success of SwSh and SV on the Switch proves it was a good idea. At the very least, there should have been a Pokemon RPG of some kind on the Wii U, even if it was just a Colosseum/XD style game.

          Only falseflaggers and tech illiterate morons claimed it's anywhere near the PS5/XSX. It's going to be a handheld, there's no magic mobile SoC that can deliver that kind of performance with decent battery life and at an affordable price. That kind of thing is at least 5 years away.

Realistically, if Nintendo is really fricking eager to get their next system out in the market, they're going to release it by summer at earliest. Fall is a more realistic release window.

          Bullshit, the Wii U did get third party support at first with games like Need for Speed, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Black Ops 2, Batman, Assassin's Creed and several others. Third parties jumped ship when it became obvious that sales weren't going to take off.
          If Nintendo dropped the moronic tablet and released a Wii HD 3 years earlier, then yes it would sell like hotcakes. Releasing an outdated gimmicky PowerPC shit console ahead of the PS4 and Xbone was a bad idea that never should have made past the drawing board.

      Why would they not announce it in spring like they did the Switch?

      The Switch wasn't announced in Spring. Do you mean release? or are you calling them stating they would one day make another console during the annual Spring shareholder meeting where they announced that they would try phone games, an announcement?
      If the former, the Switch could only launch so early in the year because the hype cycle was able to crossover the holiday season because the WiiU was dead and buried. They would have had to start moving already for a Spring launch and that would have lost them this year's holiday season just to accelerate their plans slightly.

      It definitely can. The leaked hardware is near the series S. Better in some ways, worse in others a wash overall. Any game on the series S, which is every game, *can* run on the switch 2. But Sony bribes third parties so I don't expect it there immediately. They aren't even releasing on PC day 1. After 2 or 3 years the exclusivity contract will run out. I do expect RDR2 and GTAV day 1 on switch 2 though.

          It's using the 5tflop AGX Orin. Even with a more aggressive underclock than the switch that's 3.3-3.5tflops. Add in DLSS and much better raytracing and the GPU will easily outperform the series S. On the other hand the series S will have a faster CPU. In RAM the series S is faster but the Switch 2 will have more to work with. It's a real mixed bag.

            Nintendo actually has time to work on a customized chip. The switch was a rush job to get away from the Wii U with an off the shelf tegra x1. They didn't even remove the low power cores from the original x1 design, they're still there just disabled. And stuff like the custom file compression engine in the switch 2 certainly wasn't an option for switch 1.

    From the leaked hardware Nintendo is going with a much better GPU this time. I think the reason they're taking so long to announce and release this thing is because they need to be able to get that GPU in at 400 dollars. They're just waiting for the tech to advance enough that they can get something comparable to a series S at a 400 dollar price point.

        I think we already kind of got that. The TTYD remake dropped the framerate to 30 from the originals 60, a very non-nintendo thing to do and features new button colors not in the original game or on the switch's controller. I think it's gonna be a cross gen release with the switch 2 version being the priority.

    Pushing the Switch successor's release date to holiday 2024 is a bad idea because we all know it's going to be a generation behind PlayStation and Xbox.

      You're looking at the negative side of a late gen release, but not the positive side. Releasing later means hardware closer to the competition. It also means more game development time.

        No, they wont. The Switch was about 1/3 of the weakest console, and 1/4 of the primary console. The Switch 2 leaked specs are similar to the weakest console (series s) and about 40% of the PS5. The switch 2 will have massive third party support, with the only games skipping being paid by sony.

        Did you forget that this is Nintendo we are talking about? They will never aim for anything beyond 1060p let alone 4k

        If some people won't stop complain about it, they can just release a Pro model to shut them up later

      It will be good enough. Third parties will optimise their games for it so they don't miss out on that sweet tendie cash.

        I can see Switch 2 missing out a major tittle like GTA6 and Call of Duty simply because it would take too much work for them to maintain the online servers but we'll see

    People have no clue how hard Nintendo is backed into a corner with handheld tech right now. Anything they do is going to come with big caveats that will put off their braindead normalgay audience. They're going to wait as long as they possibly can before coming out with a switch 2, especially while the switch is still selling.

      You do realize Nintendo have Nvidia tech to back them up, right? If anything, they are the one with the most advantage here

        You mean that nvidia tech that exploded in price and never came down thanks to cryptogays? There's a reason everyone goes amd and it's not like nintendo is known for powerful hardware.

        The tech that won't help for shit at the low resolutions they'll be targeting? Or do you mean their patented "we aren't a gaming company so pay enterprise prices or frick off" tech? The games will look like shit relying on upscaling from 360p and the cost will make it a non starter. Being with nvidia is all negatives and no positives.

      If the Switch successor is just more of the same but more powerful I doubt anyone will care and it will continue to sell extremely well. As long as they've got a strong launch line up there will be zero issues.

    I lurk the tendiera thread about the next nintendo harware, they've been posting absolute garbage filler for months ever since their epic local insider completely shit the bed with his supposed exclusive info (switch pro releasing late 2022/early 2023, multiple third party exclusives being developped for it)

    I'm starting to think this thing is never coming out
