It seems like Switch has been well received by the community at large despite the naysayers.
Really, from what I’m seeing the only people who genuinely have an issue with the Switch are those that genuinely hate Nintendo. YouTubers in particular, who generally can’t monetize their content as easily. DSP, JonTron, Pewdiepie, and that retard TheGamingBritshow all tried damage controlling the situation but… uh, actually drowned out by all the genuine excitement from the community. I’ve also seen a lot of hate from the announcement article on Nichegamer. I think they were triggered by the idea of a console that you could with you outside.
In other words, the only people who seem to hate Switch are the same people who don’t really like or play video games anyway. I’m seeing a lot of naysayers try to pretend that Skyrim isn’t actually coming to Switch (Which is coming from an out of context Bethesda quote… expect a lot of that in the coming months!) and this myth that it’s underpowered and will only run seventh generation games.
So it’s about on par with PS4 and Xbox One.
All kidding aside, complaints are very far and few between and are coming from people actively trying to nitpick. Switch is, in my opinion, the best possible move Nintendo could have made. I’ll elaborate on this more as we learn more about it, but the general idea is that third parties are NOT going to be able to refuse support for this console because of it’s unique functionality. One that Sony and Microsoft can not compete with.
And I think the customers (the REAL customers, not the faggots who cry about everything online) understand the appeal of the Switch and are making plans to… switch… over to Nintendo. Seven million views in a single day, tweets that outstrip the presidential debate, overshadowing RDR2…
It’s all looking very positive for the Switch, and I think that as Nintendo reveals new games, more people will be won over by it. It’s going to be successful. How much so, I cannot say. Could it outperform the Wii? I doubt it, but I think it will do reasonably well for itself and really damage the illusion that Playstation is this unstoppable titan. That image is all Playstation really has at this point.
In short, I feel like Switch is well on it’s way to being a success.
