Or we'll all be playing our games on our cellphones because who would want to buy a separate unit to game on. I'm sure that Spectral would love all console gaming falling away to mobile gaming.

Did you forget Windows is a Microsoft product? They want to build faith with PC users, something they should have done a long time ago instead of sitting on PC centric IP like Mechwarrior and Shadowrun, new titles are finally getting made. Never mind that the Playstation brand is likely the only thing keeping Sony afloat.

Sure Nintendo will still be around, producing underpowered hardware and pushing their same tired IP. They're lucky the 3ds line did so well, without it they'd be software only by now.

Wouldn't affect me really, PC trumps console gaming.

You want to build faith with PC gamers? Ditch the xbox altogether. Whether it's a PS4 Pro or xBone-S they're just shittier PCs.

Well then....you should be convinced. I haven't bought a Nintendo console since the SNES (I owned a hand-me-down N64 with hand-me-down software) and I don't foresee ever doing so. I was tempted for a few moments over Zelda, but it looks like ass (I'm not a graphics aficionado, but it bothers me if it looks terrible, which I think it does), I don't like the 'breaking weapons' mechanic, and I haven't played or wanted to play a Zelda game since the SNES. I also don't like the hardware (I don't need a mobile device; I have a great smartphone. That's my mobile device).

I own a hand-me-down XB1 and buy nothing for it. I have a PC and buy a couple of games a year. I don't give a single turd nugget for hardware, and the vast majority of gaming software is disposable garbage I don't care about either. I play about half a dozen games a year, buy one or two, and that's about it at this point.

Nintendo might as well be dead to me. Their stuff is stuck in the 90s and has rapidly lost its appeal as I've grown up. If that's offensive, so be it. That's how I feel about their stuff. Kid-centric.

I don't care about hardware. I have a mobile device (my phone) and a home device (my PC) that I game on. If it's available there and one of the rare titles I'm interested in, I'll bite. If not, whatever.

Honestly, I can't think of a single Nintendo title I'd actually pay for right now. I stopped buying DS games for my kids years ago and I just don't care about their stuff. I'll take Skyrim over Zelda any day. If their smartphone Zelda is F2P I'll check it out. If it costs money, most likely not.

tl;dr version: I'm not rooting for them to fail, just not their customer, so...whatever!

Lol yeah good luck with that. Multiplatform titles the majority would get the best looking version, that's just reality. So that leaves the Switch with pretty much Nintendo first party games and a few kid oriented titles like Splatoon. I'm sure MS and Sony are just quaking in their boots. Good God you nintendo zealots are as delusional as the liberals trying to impeach Trump.

By your own words you've judged the game as not worth your time -- Even if were multi-platform you say "it looks like ass", weapons break, "I'll take Skyrim over Zelda any day," and seem to feel Nintendo games aren't worth anything unless they're free to play. "Nintendo might as well be dead to me." -- So what does it matter to you if Zelda sits locked on Nintendo's hardware? Nintendo doesn't need any help selling their software.

You say you're platform agnostic. That you don't care where you find your gaming entertainment. Then just play whatever is both accessible, interesting, and priced right to you. Yet despite all of this you see fit the need to try and taunt. You're disquieted or offended over something. Good enough for me.

Nintendo isn't going to jump on the smartphone train now with the Switch being out there, and with a new 2DS on the horizon. If they were going to make a serious effort in mobile outside of Nintendo hardware, they would have already done it (Super Mario Run being their biggest, but too late, effort).

Anything they do at this point for smartphones, with the hardware they have out there, will be obvious cash-grab garbage. It may be polished (in presentation) because Nintendo doesn't want to tarnish their IPs, but it will be shallow and uninteresting by any of our standards (which is the most likely scenario from the get-go given the input restraints (forced to be built around touch vs. traditional controllers) of smartphone games).

Or they'd just be exclusive to the Switch. You'd like that wouldn't you, right

Right, just like how the DS / 3DS were left with scraps while the PSP / PS Vita cleaned house. And the Wii was only ever bought by hipsters and grandmas only for Wii Sports and certainly didn't have software sales equal to that of the PS3 (just short of 1 billion)

Shallow and uninteresting to a minority of core gamers Remember it's cool be in the minority defending and upholding "true" "real" gaming from the "non-gamer" unwashed masses.

I already mentioned that without the 3ds line they would have been fucked. If I am buying a gaming system for 400 dollars, I'm not looking for it to be mobile. Otherwise just buy a fully functional tablet which the Switch is not. As fot Trump, Clinton lost, get over it, your batshit ideology lost, and it continues to lose across all forms of government. The problem with liberals is rather than understand why they keep losing, instead they double down on their lunacy. At the rate they're going they'll continue to lose. Despite what the MSM is pushing most Americans reject cultural Marxism, socialism and communism.

I think you need a video to show you how to get dressed in the morning.
