Do gamers need a Nintendo Switch Pro? Engine Software developers believe that such a console will not really change the situation with games on the platform

Published

Rumors about the Nintendo Switch Pro game console (tentative name) have been circulating on the Web for more than a year. The company has officially announced that it does not plan to release such a device in the current fiscal year, but Nintendo’s fiscal year ends in March.

Be that as it may, it is not a fact that the Nintendo Switch Pro is generally needed by most potential buyers. Co-founder and VP of Engine Software Ruud van de Moosdijk expressed the opinion that the increased performance of the new console may simply not be fully demanded by the developers.

In truth, our opinion on this may seem counterintuitive to many, but we’re not looking forward to the Switch Pro too much. Sure, it would be nice to have more RAM or faster CPU / GPUs than current ones, but if this still counts as the same platform, you should make sure your game works on every model in the lineup. As a result, for compatibility reasons, your performance is rated at the lowest specs. We have seen with previous “retrofit systems” that the extra power has never been properly used for this reason.

Simply put, since the new set-top box will clearly not be a new generation, but simply a more productive version of the current one, most likely, the additional power will be directed to support a higher resolution (4K). Actually, you can remember PS4 and PS4 Pro in order to understand that miracles should not be expected from a reinforced console without a generation change.

On the other hand, some ports of games on the Switch have shown that there is clearly no extra extra performance.

Sales of Xbox and Microsoft games sank.  The company reported for the next financial quarter

The company’s revenue rose 2% to $52.7 billion, while net income fell 12% to $16.4 billion.

This is far from Microsoft’s best quarter. These results are due to several reasons. First, there is a decline in revenue from manufacturers of laptops with Windows and PC sales in the market as a whole. Secondly, sales of Microsoft devices sank by a considerable 39%.

Also not the best way to feel in the last quarter and the gaming division of the company. In general, the Xbox division was marked by a decrease in revenue. Game sales fell by 13%, hardware sales fell by the same amount, that is, primarily consoles, and revenue from services and services decreased by 12%.

At the same time, Microsoft notes the further growth of the Game Pass service, but, as always, does not name the number of users and revenue.
