    Unfortunately, Persona 5 Scramble decides that portability is best on Switch, as it foregoes 60fps to use 30fps instead. Guess how the PS4 version runs.

    Proof that Atlus is slowly turning into one of the weirdest, if not the weirdest, companies in gaming.

    "You want what you want,” Ari Advincula explained, “and if you don’t let us know it we’re never going to be able to make it.” Advincula said Atlus is listening and does see the desire for Persona 5 on Switch, saying “it’s important to always voice your opinion.”

    Advincula encouraged fans to “keep telling us what you want,” saying she was fighting for it internally as well. However, it’s important to point out that she also said she’s obviously “not the decision-maker” in a situation like this despite being an “internal champion” for it, so this shouldn’t be taken as an indication of what is happening or could happen down the line.

    ...Or maybe very, very blind.

    3rd parties & port begging, a tale as old as time. Playstation never has to worry 3rd party, not even during the 1st few years of the PS3 when it was difficult to program for & getting outsold by 360 did they abandon it. & yet when Nintendo has a system that outsold the XB1 in half the time still there are companies showing hesitation. Halfway through the life cycle of the Switch & still we don't have a Madden, a CoD, a GTA, Gearbox making excuses why they aren't porting any of the Borderlands (when they did port the much less popular Bulletstorm), a new Monster Hunter, & so forth.

    You have until March 24th to get it for free.

    FUN FACT: The Nintendo Switch and I have the same birthday.

    Happy B-Day to us! :D

    You were born in 2017? ( This was a joke I'm stupid but not that stupid)

    Wish joycons were cheaper. I want new colors but not for more than a game.

    I want a wireless Pro Controller many as a back up controller that also has HD Rumble and Amiibo support and maybe another set of Joy Con for a few of the multiplayer games I have that could be fun with four or more players like Clue or Think of the Children! The latter game seems to be a game that is much better when playing with friends as one player concentrates on clearing the list of tasks before time runs out while the others run around and keep the kids from killing themselves in insane ways.

    The pro controller is so worth it. It cost less than a pair of joycons!

    Yeah but I want a third set of Joy Cons for different colors and also for party games. Not that I throw any parties but it’d be nice if I take it over to a friend’s house and a group of us duke it out in Smash or play Monopoly together.

    Though the Pro Controller has the con of not filling out players faster than buying a pair of Joy-Cons. And in the long run, buying a second Pro Controller is more expensive than a pair of Joy-Cons.

    On a serious note, I gotta say, the Corona virus is really making a muck not just in health, but the entertainment business as well. I have a feeling we won't get any retail games on Switch for a while.

    Not necessarily. The carts are made in factories and probably not all in Asia. Plus digital downloads can be purchased literally anywhere and the option to buy physical is not as common as it used to be. Only hardcore game collectors seem to buy physical games and you don’t have to worry about having not enough memory on the system for every game you have since it can be remedied by getting a new SD card.

    But what about the sd cards themselves? I'm wondering if there will be a shortage on them too. As for physical games, I generally go that route to save some space.

    There is not yet any reason to believe this will be the case. "I have a feeling we won't get any retail games on Switch for a while" especially so. Production can always be managed, even if it has to be lessened.

    Don't worry about it just yet. Particularly as it appears that Animal Crossing won't be drastically affected - that's the nearest big domino at the moment, and they appear to be managing.

    Well, that's because they can release it digitally.

    Except for where there is no major reported impact on physical copies of the game, or on the Animal Crossing Switch, the latter of which they cannot release digitally.

    Hm, the next episode of Pokemon Twilight Wings is gonna release on a Tuesday instead of a Wednesday like the prior two episodes. I wonder if that means....well, you know.
