@sheevpalpamemes: I would agree with you somewhat and honestly I don't care myself about this mid-gen refresh thing with Switch, but many don't see it that way.

@sheevpalpamemes: oh and I also said I don't think it was Nintendo's call not going for the beefier upgrade, I put that on Nvidia and the challenge Nintendo likely has working with them

Jeez, make up your minds people, Switch is an 8th gen device, no wait it's a 9th gen. I always put it in the latter myself.

Anyhow, yeah they gained an early lead might even sustain it but their personal growth moment as a company ended a few years back, right around the time they decided to put brakes ons VC for Switch and push the shit subscription drip. But the move to consolidate the console and handheld under one unit was a great idea. Now people want a beefier mid-gen refresh, and Nintendo won't. Honestly though I think this is less Nintendo's call, more that Nvidia won't let them. I know people expected a Switch-lite too in tradition of DS and 3DS but I think again this was out of need because Nvidia wasn't providing much wiggle room. And knowing never to make a deal with the devil will be the lesson they'll have to finish in silence.

Now that I see this $500 AMD powered Valve Switch I have no doubt it's Nvidia controlling Switch prices and to that extent dictating the limits of the mid-gen refresh.

Nvidia wouldn't let Nintendo do a mid gen refresh? :|

Joke post?

@casey-wegner: serious on my end, going back to MS's problems on OG Xbox was that Nvidia wouldn't budget on chip prices to make the system competitively priced as life of console went on, no doubt this is what we are seeing here, same guts of the thing just a new screen is the best they could do

Nintendo also can't say just kick Nvidia to the curb and go with AMD for a new mid-gen refresh, their games to date were made with Nvidia's proprietary APIs and they wouldn't work well on AMD tech without an overhaul of the entire Switch line-up.

Nintendo is kind of stuck.

Nintendo won with manbabies who cosplay as Peach and parents who don't want to watch their kids during the pandemic. That's about it.

I wish nintendo would go the sega route and make games as a 3rd party developer. Their shitty hardware and horrible internet ecosystem always lags behind the competition. Their IPs are still good enough to buy the consoles though. I just drool over the thought of a zelda on current gen

@casey-wegner: So you admit Nintendo needs an almost 4 year head start to compete, how pathetic lol.

Real gamers say otherwise. I sold my Switch and couldn't be happier.
