Nintendo Switch Latest News & Update: Top Nintendo Switch Features Over PS4, Xbox One - Part 3
If Nintendo Switch can run full AAA games through portable monitor, then where will they put the game? The answer was subtly answered in Nintendo Switch reveal trailer - cartridge gaming.
Remember a scene in Nintendo Switch trailer when a player seats on a plane then pops a card on top of his device? Game cartridge system makes sense, given the concept of portability. Come to think of it, even PlayStation Portable sports similar feature albeit through Universal Media Discs and cartridge as well in PlayStation Vita. Well, Nintendo is the best when it comes to cartridge, as exemplified by Nintendo 3DS.
Now here is the best part: games that will actually be in those cartridges. Nintendo Switch sports a huge number of AAA game developers who expressed support to the console. Think of Bethesda, Capcom, EA, Square Enix, Ubisoft and others. The list of supporters is growing longer to the point that it might take us another article just to round them all, Nintendo Life reported.
Yes, we have seen the likes of "Skyrim" and "NBA 2K" in the reveal trailer so these are possibilities. Nintendo Switch might not end with a game library as huge as PlayStation 4 but it can be argued that what are important are those AAA games. After all, some of the games in PS Store are just bunch of craps anyway. In the end, it is going to be a matter of debate between quantity and quality of games that Nintendo Switch houses.
Remember that Nintendo is a company that develops games themselves so Nintendo Switch will never come short of treats. "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" is probably the single biggest draw for gamers to purchase Nintendo Switch, The Verge said. Oh yes, any "Super Mario" rendition is a welcome development as well.
So to cap up the whole Nintendo Switch argument, there is no point comparing the console to PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. In the end, what thrills the gamers is what a gaming device, console or portable can do.
