With XBox Series X And the PS5 coming out, Will Nintendo Yield to the call of more Power?

They just need to streamline online play and friend chatting. I don't have a switch so I don't know if nintendo has updated their online gaming.

Aiddon:
Except there's no proof the public DOES care; if this were true then the best-selling system of last gen wouldn't have been the Wii, the DS wouldn't have slaughtered the PSP, and the Vita wouldn't be dead.

The public absolutely does care about power. However, they care more about first-party titles. This is likely why the PlayStation 4 sells so well. It has great first-party titles, and is also quite powerful.

Vergil's voice: Nintendo needs more power! More power!

What do you think SALES stand for if not "what the public cares about"? Take your time.

Did you stop reading there? Aiddon's very next words addresses your point before you even made it.

He's talking about consoles, I'm talking about games. Power, in the form of state-of-the-art whatever, sells, has always sold, will continue to sell. And he's being coy with his examples as per usual. He could've itemized how the N64 and the GameCube DIDN'T outsell consoles (PS and PS2) that weren't technically as powerful, but god forbid something tarnish Nintendo's best-selling track record, which right now boils down to two generations (the SNES and the Wii, barely).

ObsidianJones:
I've been on record saying that the Nintendo Switch is my favorite console of all time. Namely because it's been with me every step of the way since I got it. The second I was playing Skyrim in the airport waiting for my delayed flight to Altanta and getting PISSED that they were finally boarding, I knew how much of a Game Changer (Puns, I got them!) Nintendo created with the Switch.

But with the Xbox Series X (they want us to call it Xbox Sex, we all know this) and the PS5, we are one step closer to complete uncanny valley. If not the generation after this, the generation after that will probably be able just to model a full photo realistic town with people that look as real as actors.

These leaps of gaming will lead people to expect more. There are still people decrying how bad the Switch is because the Witcher 3 doesn't look as amazing as it does on their PS4.

I think we're reaching the culmination of what Nintendo Wants. The integration of Motion Control to separate themselves from the pack. If they release a Joy Con pro with actual one to one motion, The Nintendo Switch will be the only way to play a FPS outside of a PC. The low price point and the accessibility almost demands that all your children in the household have their OWN switch. You used to be able to say that you have only one TV screen so you have to share the game console. Now you literally can just give them their own screens and have them play the same game with separate experiences. They have game experiences that still rocks people socks off. Legend of Zelda was game of the year. Odyssey is supposedly good. I love Splatoon 2. I freaking love ARMS (which brings up another call for Joy Con pros). They have a steady stable.

But I think this generation will be the 'Wow' generation.

I think we're in for the spectacle of being in a real, living town. Or world building, as Phil Spencer puts it. Can Nintendo really keep up by releasing a Nintendo Switch Pro that gives us maybe early ps4 graphics on the go?

Can Nintendo find another route to go down instead of trying to get back into the power race? We already have our games on the go. Will making the games on the go in early Ps4 tech be enough to keep up with the PSVR and the sheer computing power of the Xbox? Is there a new way of controlling your games that can immerse you more than motion controls? Or have we found the limit of the deviation that Nintendo can attempt until they have to come back and start actively competing with the worlds that the PS5 and the XSex are going to be able to create?

Last series of questions posed to you. Say Nintendo sticks with the Switch Format. It can be hand held or docked. Knowing the limitations of mobile chipsets, what do you think is acceptable to ask for Nintendo to put in this new iteration? Is it fair to say that you'd want a game like Tekken 7 on the new iteration but you'd understand if they couldn't make a Spiderman? Would you be ok if the dock acted as more of a booster that you COULD play a game like Spiderman docked, but not on the go? Or hey, are you ok with what is going on and you think Nintendo never has to re-enter the console arm race again?

Idk, but I think the X will be capitalized in Xbox Series X, as in X-SeX. Like, they put the X in SeX.

I supposed they're really getting desperately literal in the hopes that SeX sells here.

well MS has actually confirmed the actualy name of the next console is just "Xbox" since it was announced with next years console being the series X box. it seems like microsoft won't be making new consoles per say anymore, but just releasing improvements on the current model they already have like how the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X were still the same console just with beefier hardware.

as in this year MS will have the Series X
in 2021, the Series Y
in 2022, the Series Z
etc, etc, etc....

it seems like MS is trying to go for that type of business model.

So the big monolith looking box they recently revealed is their next physical console, and after that they'll just be doing incremental software upgrades? At some point they'll need some type of hardware upgrade, unless they're just going to a 100% streaming/cloud model. If that's the case they wouldn't need a box that massive.
