Nintendo console Switch just clicked the first year. During this time, the device was named the best-selling gaming platform in history. What is behind the success of this nondescript device that didn’t seem to knock-ness?
After a year of heavy Switch usage, it comes to my mind for at least five major reasons why the console lands in my bag daily. The Switch practically stopped playing on smartphones and tablets. For this purpose friends on PS4 started asking that with me everything is all right. Instead of an evening session on a Sony console, I chose to play on a smaller, less powerful Nintendo device. The stationary console could not include in 2 weeks. Given the nature of my work, this is an amazing result.
Exclusive game catalogue
Nintendo Switch is great. The last gadget from the video game world that gave me so much fun was the PlayStation 2. This equipment is used. This doesn’t fit. Doesn’t allow for much. It gives a lot of pleasure. If you are thinking about buying it, you may be helped by a list of reasons why Switch is also being repaired. Part is obvious. I can’t.
In the ranking of the best games of 2017 on Nintendo Switch Review, the podium took two names Nintendo. Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey is a production for which buy the console. So good that by refusing to play the non-player does himself a lot of harm. Nintendo has always been good and refined productions, but what the Japanese are doing in 2017 passes the wildest expectations of fans.
Nintendo Switch has an amazing catalog of games for exclusive. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart 8 „Deluxe”, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Bayonetta 2 and Splatoon 2 are wonderful titles that ” allow for playability. Below is a solid high shelf consisting of such productions as Pokken Tournament DX, Snipperclips, ARMS and Fire Emblem Warriors.
Of course, not all Nintendo games are big hits. Disappointed me, for example, arcade 1-2 Switch. However, in the overall calculation, the Japanese have provided as many top-end exclusive games as the 10/10 and 9/10 reviews, as Xbox and PlayStation have collected over the course of three years. Some of these hits are Wii U ports, but personally I don’t see the problem with that. On the previous, not very popular Nintendo console came out a few beads, which few people played. Good thing they found a second life on the switch.
Amazing technical capabilities of the console
Switch is the weakest console of the current generation. On the other hand, I’m still under the impression of what games I can run on this platform in portable mode. Pleases me that the equipment located in the pocket of a winter coat I have such titles as Breath of the Wild, Rage, DOOM, L. A. Noire, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Outlast 2, Payday 2, Layers of Fear whether Rocket League.
There’s something magical about when a big, powerful headline like DOOM becomes possible to play on a bus or train. The view of such a vast, advanced game on a small tablet screen is an amazing experience. Switch is the most powerful portable console that has ever been created. Soon it will be upchnięte even more great performances that would mention Wolfenstein 2, Cool and Dark Souls.
It is common knowledge that every game gets better if we can play it together with friends. In turn, Switch is a console created typically for General enjoyment. Betray it is themselves Joy Horses, for which there is a philosophy to share with loved ones nearby. You put forward one part of the controller, give a friend and can already play together in great games focused on cooperation and competition.
Nintendo capital a way to unite combines entertainment with the mobile advantage of the gameplay. You put the tablet on the table, you give joy-con to a friend, and you’re done. You play together in Mario Kart 8, without connecting the console to the TV and power supply. What convenient it is! How instinctive! How natural! None of the previous portable console did not offer such wonderful opportunities to play together. As a big fan of video game collaboration, I’m thrilled.
Nintendo Switch is not a competitor to PlayStation and Xbox
The Wii U suffered a shameful failure because the console didn’t stand out from the competition. Had a car and we are on it to run the AAA titles of the type Batman: Arkham City, Call of Duty: Black Ops II and Assassin’s Creed III. These are all start-up productions that came on the market along with the Wii U. there Was, however, the question – why play big titles on the Nintendo console, since on the Sony and Microsoft platforms, the same games work better and faster? Besides, they’re prettier.
Switch does not have this problem. It’s not a console you need to have INSTEAD of a PS4 or Xbox. We are talking about the equipment cost of ownership, DESPITE the console Sony or Microsoft, located in the living room. Switch does not compete with Xbox and PlayStation. It is relatively complementary to these platforms. First you play Shadow of the Colossus on PS4, and then you get on the train and you do it. Or go to Minecraft on XONE to then continue on the same profile on Switchu.
Nintendo’s wisdom is to avoid a direct collision with the PS4 and XONE. Instead of the aspects of the course, the Japanese chose their way, running parallel to typically stationary consoles. Thanks to this and the mobile quality of the game, Switch is an interesting product for all those who already have a console connected to the TV.
Nintendo Switch hides a lot of mysteries, of which little is known. For example, located in the right Joy-which The IR camera allows to recognize the shapes that are in front of it. So in the digital world you can import your own, Cup or glasses and then use the object as a track element in the racing game. I was shocked when I first saw this technology. I didn’t know Switch allowed something like this.
Nintendo still doesn’t use the technical capabilities of its console. For example, the Home button on the right Joy-Con can be highlighted with a blue light. Only that the Japanese have not yet used this feature in practice. Players from all over the world find all sorts of treasures in the switch code, such as a full-featured emulator.
Projects such as Nintendo Labo clearly indicate that the Switch hides a lot more, a lot of surprises. The owners of this console, of course, will not complain of boredom. The Japanese are gradually developing their system and introducing more and more new features. I am convinced that in the next 4-5 years, this console will change beyond recognition. Both from the hardware and the software itself.
