Bethesda think the Switch is a device only Nintendo could make, excited about the platform

Coming from Bethesda's Todd Howard...

"I think it's really smart what they've done. I think it's the kind of device that only Nintendo could make. It's exciting to bring Skyrim to the Nintendo audience."

Mr. Howard went on to say that Nintendo has been a "very good partner...Whereas before they were less interested in the types of things that we did or some other groups did."

As far as what happens with the Switch from here on out, Howard was unsure.

"I don't know where it's gonna go, but I think it's a really smart platform. We like it a lot."

Heh, that's funny. "Only Nintendo could make it". Meanwhile, these new patents from Sony just appeared today:

Classic Sony...

I believe those patents have a date of 2015 on them...

That is super funny. They learned from the Wii. They will be very quick to go to market if the Switch ends up being a mega success

I really hope Sony goes through with it and sticks with it. I would love to play games like Ratchet and Clank, Rocket League, Gravity Rush, and Ni No Kuni on the go. The Vita could have done some of that stuff (or it already did with Gravity Rush) but we all know how that turned out.

rocket league devs said they're going to attempt a switch version

Do you mind sharing a source on that? The last time I read, they said something like it could maybe be a possibility.

ok so the article I saw was about how they want to do it but didn't have enough info on the Switch yet. but past interviews mentioned they want to bring rocket league to as many consoles as possible. so don't rule it out I guess. haha.

Err.... Nintendo wasn't the first to do this, they just made it easier.

Then that's a bigger reason for Bethesda to be wrong on that.

Considering we already heard rumblings of what the NX(and remember MX? haha) was in 2015, it doesn't surprise me they were already trying to get a jump on Nintendo. It's not a bug stretch from the WiiU concept either.

I'm sure both Sony and Microsoft will be implementing similar devices in the future as mobile options as things move towards streaming and iterative hardware.... Being able to just produce new docks it supplementary computing devices is a genius move considering the trends, then only needing to update the core tablet every 5-6 years.

bethesda is excited til their late port of a remaster of a old game doesnt sell well at full price when the other versions of the game can likely be found much cheaper.

And then quickly by dropping all support for Nintendo in the future followed by most 3rd parties like EA.

I'm still excited, and this game isn't on my radar. It's a portable version of a still popular game. Nintendo needs all the 3rd party support it can get, and relations with those that are unfamiliar territory are all the more welcome. This is a great partnership for both parties involved and I hope it does really well.
