  1. I know Nintendo has a secret plan to keep Switch selling great even when the new hardware from rivals come out. I know what it seems like. With no info on games as if Nintendo has no plan all year.

    What I question the most is continuous 3rd party support. How will that still happen against 12 teraflops Xbox Series X and PS5? How? That’s alllll I want to know?

    1. There’s still plenty of games from the last few gens that they haven’t dipped into yet. It’ll still get the odd current release as well for stuff that isn’t too taxing. If you think every game is going to use the full 12 teraflops you’re very optimistic.

    2. They won’t announce anything big until AC is out. They want absolutely nothing overshadowing it in the slightest, that’s why the SwSh expansion announcement was like a month before Pokemon day; so the news wouldn’t be close enough to AC to potentially reroute the hype, even if only temporarily. I feel like we’ll see a direct within 2-3 weeks following AC’s release.

  2. The Corona Virus needs to be reeled in. The OG Switch is suffering from reduced production. We shall game on though.


  3. The Switch will be good Grantilda, even with corona it is selling well. The original Switch will pick up soon. The PS5 will breeze past the Xbox series X easily. Your wallet suffer due to Switch games selling in the millions.
