I think Nintendo gave guidance on how to respond if you were featured in the video. The similarity between Bethesda's and 2K's comments is too great for me to reason that it's a coincidence.

Dear Nintendo fans:

Please buy games so 3rd parties stick around. And no, I don't think you should buy crap. But don't let good games go to waste.

Dear modern gamers:

Stop having a phobia with Nintendo consoles. Most Nintendo fans can't be blamed for not supporting your favorite franchises/companies, since, to reiterate: they're fans for specific things.
If anything, it's the constant "buy for now, sell if I don't see a game I want (aka well advertised) in two months" that causes third parties to feel inadequate in Nintendo consoles.
You guys were there when 3rd parties were on the SNES. You left after that. And where you went is where the 3rd parties went. So: you're the ones who made 3rd parties great on Nintendo consoles - not the Nintendo fans.

copying my own tweet from a min ago....

If you want western 3rd party games on the Switch, better get used to this phrase " we are not confirming any specific titles at this time"

EA's comment is adorable.

I think Nintendo gave guidance on how to respond if you were featured in the video. The similarity between Bethesda's and 2K's comments is too great for me to reason that it's a coincidence.

Agreed. They were almost identical and that would not happen, even with canned PR responses.

I will gladly buy 3rd Party games as long as they give us qaulity ports.

I'm quite sure the reason why many devs (that are supposedly supporting the Switch) have said things such as "we are not confirming any specific titles at this time..." is because Nintendo instructed them not to say anything about their games at this moment, possibly because they want to reveal the Switch's whole lineup at one time in the future, possibly in trailer form, to surprise us.

I'm looking forward to the inevitable Direct that shows the launch lineup and early titles far more than I looked forward to the reveal trailer.

As long as they are quality releases, I will buy and support them. I bought ZombiU, Assassin's Creed 3, Need For Speed, Bayonetta and many more.

Zombi U is still one of my favorite wii u game.

EA's support is euphoric. They really can't contain their excitement. Calm down you guys. Another unprecedented partnership.

The problem for me when it came to multiplatform games is that I have a perfectly capable gaming PC. So there was really no incentive for me to get it on anything else. I'd imagine those who were already inclined to Sony or Microsoft and bought their consoles would also see no need to get a Nintendo console for multiplatform games since by and large they would all play the same, barring some performance differences.

But the Nintendo Switch has one huge advantage over the other two now and that is portability. This might actually make me consider getting certain multiplatform games on the Switch instead of my PC and that could possibly apply to others who use the console. Of course the big question is whether the Switch is powerful enough to play this generation of console multiplatforms, but if it does, this is really a big advantage of the Switch over PC/XboxOne/PS4. Dark Souls 3 on the go for example (From Software was on the list of partners)?

I agree from what I saw today, the Switch would definitely be a console of choice for at least some of the multiplarforn games.

But I still think the best way to make third party games for Nintendo is to go with exclusives.

I'm super happy to see From there. From what they said about their games not being on the U, it seems they themselves don't realize the potential their games have with Nintendo fan base.

Well third parties, I hope you learned that providing a fanbase with a lesser version [visually, content and online wise] is not a good idea.

And with all relevant engines being supported by the NS... No excuses will fly this time.

And even if they do provide equal versions (like Ubisoft did), Nintendo fans still won't buy their games.

Doesn't help they sat on a completed game for half a year to release the ports to other systems at the same time.

Right. I remember that. Boy, a lot of feathers were ruffled back then...
