Nintendo has unveiled a wide range of TV CMs to help spread word and build hype for the seemingly gimmicky console that is the Nintendo Switch, with each one focusing on the console’s unique aspects and bound to leave even the most hardened critics unimpressed.

    It ain't seemingly gimmicky my friend, it can play Skyrim, and believe me, that means a lot.

    It means nothing. You can pick up an old AMD APU that can play Skyrim for next to nothing. It'll hardly be 60fps on the Switch.

    To whom exactly? The 3 people who have never played it on PC/PS4/Xbox and want to try it now without mod support?

    I have zero business with who is gonna play it, what I do know though is that if I ever wanted to play Skyrim on the go, well, happy birthday.

    Look here, I am sure there's going to be titles exclusive to the Switch. I'll admit, I don't like console exclusiveness one bit.

    You can do that already with a laptop or a portable steam machine...

    Alright, I've been playing Oblivion and have 170+ hours played. Yes, I know some Diablo III players have 2000+ hours on that game.

    Just to recap

    The Nintendo switch will.

    - Launch with no games
    - Launch at a higher price than the PS4/Xbox One

    What could possibly go wrong?

    They could forget to make a new Metroid. Whoops, Nintendo already has that covered.

    Nintendo should have delayed the Switch by at least 12 months to have a full compliment of launch titles.

    Because at the end of the day, most Wii U owners can just buy Zelda on the Wii U at launch and save themselves a few hundred $/£.

    You seem to think good launch titles is something every console had.

    No console in the last 10 years had good launch titles.

    "You'd be insane to buy Day One."

    Not if you just want a physical copy of TBoI Afterbirth+. Buying ARMS and BotW too and for some announced and unannounced that are coming to it shortly but no other platform has a physical copy of that game.

    I probably won't ever even play it because I already own multiple copies which are 100% complete as of this morning, but absolutely yes to a physical copy regardless.

    Hilarious. Truly hilarious seeing butthurt Nintendo fanboys defending the lack of games at launch. The only must have game is out on the Wii U on the same day and doesn't look much different graphically either.

    Enjoy your shovelware titles and old ports. You won't get much else from third parties.

    First off, Arms isn't a launch title. It comes out later. BOTW, 1,2 Switch, Bomberman R, Puyo Puyo Tetris, and a few others are coming out at launch. Not Arms though. It says Spring, but that doesn't mean launch. Spring goes from March to the end of June usually. So it's coming out sometime in those months but not launch.

    Secondly, the people bitching about the launch line-up on the Switch forget just how terrible the PS3, Xbox 360, and Xbox One launches were. 360 had 6 games at launch. One was Perfect Dark Zero and the other was COD 2. PS3 I believe had Resistance and not much else worthwile. Hardly a system seller. Xbox One had KI, Dead Rising 3, and Ryse. PS4 had Killzone, Driveclub, and Knack. The PS4 and Xbox 1 had the same 3rd party games at launch. Unless you were a die-hard COD, Battlefield, or FIFA player, you likely didn't waste your time with it. Doesn't mean they didn't sell well because they did. Just not something that made people go, yeah I want that system. Xbox One is doing even worse now that they have done their Games for Windows platform. Sure they push games, but we're talking consoles. The Switch isn't any different. BOTW will be the system seller. Everything else is just there. It likely won't pick up till Splatoon 2 and Mario come out though. Point is none of the consoles have really had awesome launch days. Maybe a few games that die-hards wanted, but no real killer apps.

    Dude you can't defend the Switch's launch lineup. Besides a game that's coming out on the Wii U on the same day, it literally has no must have exclusive games to make you buy. Add on that its also more expensive to buy than the PS4/Xbox One. You'd be insane to buy Day One.

    It would actually be more expensive for you, since you'd have to fly to Japan...

    Their marketing department is pretty good. It's really sad that a couple of bad business decisions ruin everything one could possibly like about the NX.

    Nintendo making under powered machines screws them as far as ports go. Nobody wants to make the extra effort to downscale their games to run on their machines.

    However had Nintendo competed with Microsoft and Sony as far as power went, you'd see a lot more ports as they'd be a simple thing to do.

    Nintendo also really pissed off some third parties back in the days, so I'm not even sure they would decently port their games if it was easier.

    Let's see here...

    Call the console gimmicky - check
    Call the console unimpressive - check
    Say that only Nintendo fans will buy it - check
    Have the usual cancerous comment section - check

    ...Yep, it's a Sankaku Switch article, alright.

    And they're all upvoting each other in a big circlejerk which is funny too.

    The comment section is a 100 times better than most other gaming sites with authoritarian moderation and PC groupthink that advocates everyone to blindly praise everything and never say anything "negative or critical", despite how garbage a game or console may actually be. *Cough* Gematsu...siliconera...*Cough*.

    That's because you won't find many snowflakes on here. You know, liberals who get easily offended.

    Being a liberal who does plenty of offending is way more fun.
