@Juub1990: How can something so simple be so hard for people to understand. I would understand if he was trolling, but he's not, he's serious lol.

And what is that argument?...

Confusing the people? We're talking about whether the Switch is an 8th or 9th gen machine.

Oh so you two are having a topic outside of the original topic.

My bad go at it.

Its funny that even during a global pandemic, people seem to have their feelings more affected by a game console than by the perspective of the economy collapsing and their grandparents/parents dying.

Honestly, i like sony and I dont like microsoft, but lets calm down. Their console is more powerful, that is all. Its no reason to be exchanging childish taunts.

It's not a misunderstanding... I have been in self isolation with my family for 7 days and have 15 hours till HLA is released. I am looking for a fight!

@vfighter: Wii U is Gen 8, it released 12 months before PS4/Bone and it flopped hard. Wii was Gen 7. It's not about hardware power, it's about the Era it was released in.

@Juub1990: @Juub1990: Because my argument isn't based solely on power, if you could read and comprehend things you'd understand that. The switch is current gen for two reasons, it released half way through this gen, which that alone puts it in this current gen, and its not even close to the same power level of THIS gens systems, let alone next gens. Hell when next gen releases the Switch will be nearly 4 years old and unable to play most 3rd party current gen titles...sure doesnt sound next gen to me lol. Let me know when the ps5 and Xsex release how many of their games will run on the switch lol. But you and IP keep arguing otherwise, stupidity does make for some good entertainment.

@vfighter: Of course stupidity makes for some good entertainment this is exactly why we’re laughing at you and you’re constantly seen as a farce here. You're also the one who got offended because I was using too many big words that one time.

>My argument isn’t solely about power

When your entire stance was focused on power until your premise got torn to shreds. "Bu bu but it’s too weak to be a next gen system"

>When PS5/SX releases Switch will be nearly 4 years old

Yeah so same age as the PS4/X1 were when Switch released?

But by all means. Nintendo has had 2 8th gen consoles for what will be probably be over 10 years when a typical Nintendo release cycle is;

NES: 1985-1991 - 6 years

SNES: 1991-1996 - 5 years

N64: 1996-2001 - 5 years

NGC: 2001-2006 - 5 years

Wii: 2006-2012 - 6 years

Wii U: 2012-2017 - 5 years

Geez would you look at that. Nintendo consoles typically last exactly 5 years!!! Shocking.

Lol you're a joke kid. Probably the most unintelligent and childish poster in SW and that's saying something. Don't hurt your brain trying to decipher the complicated words of my post now.

You are clueless.

So if the 360 & PS3 finished behind the Wii in sales, and Nintendo's next console was the WiiU, that mean that the XB1/PS4 released after the gen started. So if that is correct then, the Switch has started a next gen. Simple, simple, simple, but not as simple as you it seems.

But you are right about one thing and your stupidity does make for some good entertainment.

@Juub1990: Complicated words, you? Lol, I think you're confused, seems to be happening to you a lot in this thread. But you're right, the switch, a 3 year old console that's underpowered already during its current gen is actually next gen, lol, god you cant make this shit up. Its Nintendo's next console after the utter failure of the WiiU, I'll give you that, but if you truly believe that the switch was the start of next gen 3 years ago may god have mercy on your poor misguided soul.

@Pedro: it's hard believe you enjoy games with that robotic few on material things. In case you didnt know video games are a materialistic things made by companies as well

With your logic the only thing you should truly enjoy is pitty pat with other humans lol

How can you not feel a console on a figurative level ?

Consoles are machines. People who feel emotionally attached to a console has personal problems. People who make a console part of their identity also have personal problems. None of this relates to games. Do you feel like you won when a console company sells more than another company because you bought their hardware? That is an odd sense of accomplishment.

Yes... When the dang corner store's grill is still on after 10pm i feel like i've won.

My system of choice selling extremely well is extra assurance that the game universes and communtiy i love isnt going anywhere.

Its not a hard concept to grasp man lol. But if consoles do seize to exist no duh i can adapt and enjoy games elsewhere.

Change is going to occur whether you like it or not. The death of juvenile behavior in the console arena over stupid console wars is long overdue. The companies that don't adapt would be the next Blockbuster.

You really need to ask a shareholder or stakeholder in these massive corporations, not the consumer who play the GAMES. Because games are the only thing that really matter to gamers. You only buy a game once. You don't play sales.

Yea but what most gamers dont get is that aaa games would evolve way slower if consoles stop thriving.

So if games are something you claim to care about you wouldnt want things to mirror pc

its bad enough we are using x86 right now

imagine claiming to love power of coal (pc) while slowing down the different ways to use coal(consoles)

We would probably still be satisfied with just coal for energy right now lol

Until current gaming pcs start at 300 gamers should always route for consoles.

Unless they play the same old kind of games forever. Making them a part of a minority. Special cases lol

I think that it's pretty pathetic to personally identify with a brand so much that you feel that kind of emotion about what position the brand holds worldwide. I love a lot of products but I'm really careful about brand loyalty. Some of y'all lose yourselves in this shit and it's really scary.

@Juub1990: lmao that's some BS and you know it. All that matters is Sony passed MS. Many sites reported that PS3 surpassed 360 before PS4 even released. Nice try.

Like many X360 gamers, my console got RROD. Guess what, MS fixed it for free!

When my PS2 broke (stopped reading any discs), Sony charged me 120 euros to fix it.

Thanks, MS! Boo, Sony!

(Nintendo does get off free on this one. None of their systems from SNES/GB up to WIIU/Switch have ever broken on me)
