  1. will this console ever get none retro snes looking games + Indie games + rehashed first party like yoshi and kriby 2d that we’ve already seen since 1985. I haven’t seen a single intresting game since the announcement of this console besides Zelda wich it technically a WII U game , Metroid wich we technically haven’t seen anything of yet , Skyrim wich everyone and there mothers already played ages ago, Mario Kart wich again was a Wii u game and the list goes on and on I gues. So far the most intresting thing I have seen is the new Mario wich again ain’t third party.

      1. I buy a new console for big amazing looking games I got a 8 bit , snes , tablet and phone for all these smaller games. Tons of people play clash of clans, Angry Birds , Candy Crush aswell that doesn’t mean there system sellers like zelda, Mario, GTA, Call of duty and even if they are you buy a console for big company games the top of the gaming industrie shit.

      2. It’s mine and 84,627,935 people that bought a Playstation and xbox for those games opinion. I could say the same to you but I have to accept your way of thinking aswell, just because you think like that doesn’t make it true though, and the numbers don’t lie regarding my opinion. It’s also my experience from everyone around me that they just wan’t a solid console that offers all the big titles.

      3. That’s fine and you’re entitled to your opinion,but I’m just saying that indies regardless of the platform can be just as enjoyable as a AAA game. I just don’t think it’s fair that some people don’t give indies credit where it’s due and this game is one of those examples.

      4. Fair enough I have to agree with you on that part. I’m just tired of only seeing this kind of news on this website for the past 12 months and zero major developer games.
