    Why said anything about the eShop? That's not a backup of the physical game.

    Dumping the cart into a ROM makes an actual digital backup.

    Other reports are saying its due to the type of chip Nintendo decided to use. So the shelf life is around 10 years, personal care does matter.
    That sucks. I've managed to find a new 2ds last summer and bought a couple of games new games but even so, some of these games are old regardless.
    I got bloody original SNES and games that work even after owning SNES for more then 25 years, so it's a bit disappointing when I read this or when I hear the fan of my Switch blowing even though I'm not doing anything special.

    Well SNES was made with older, bigger and more robust electronics.

    Nowdays when companies try to do both small and cheap, you quality is bound to suffer.

    I would say it simpler in design and not more robust.
    I mean SNES is mostly a motherboard a few chips and a slot for your game everything else is just plastic to hold the motherboard.

    Sunday, May 9 is Mother's day.

    Also, I'm sick of all the good stuff being out of stock, haha, first world problems I know.

    Also, best game(s) on Switch for someone who likes Dr. Mario, Angry Birds, Peggle, The Room 1-3, The Walking Dead point and click adventure game, and Candy Crush?

    Yeah, it's a really likable piece of hardware. Something that seemed like a dream before it actually released, having a full scale console also be my handheld consoles, was an actual dream of mine, lol. I always thought cell phones would get there first, but Nintendo thought otherwise, lol.
    Dunno if you figured it out, but Best Buy has them in stock and offers next day.

    Wow, over 110m predicted by March 2022. Software sales pacing is incredible.

    https://twinfinite.net/2021/05/ninte...es-march-2021/

    These sales are just incredible to me. Incredible. Bring on a Zelda collection Nintendo!

    A new version of the Switch will suffer the same fate as the WiiU unless the the device itself will be sufficient enough to attract 3e party developers, which the current Switch really isn't.
    When looking at what Nintendo is currently releasing allot of remasters and remakes of 3ds, Wii and Wii U games. Which is fine with the Switch but that's not a infinite source of games you can fall back to and the Switch is still mostly just Nintendo with the occasion 3e party game like Monster Hunter.


    And yea it's COVID. Certain companies have been benefiting from people staying at home and having to much free time because they aren't traveling or going out. Even Microsoft is enjoying max sales with there consoles.

    I'm more surprised it hasn't passed Sw/Sh alone honestly. Odyssey was a masterpiece.

    They announced more Skyward Sword stuff including joycons and an Amiibo(which let’s you fast travel in the game). People are losing their minds over this while I’m left wondering if they know you can spoof amiibo’s quite easily. I use my phone to write to the chip.

    Oh yeah, Super Nintendo Switch rumor update!

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...n-as-september

    As quiet as Nintendo likes to be about everything, I suspect the name bloomberg can be heard at Nintendo HQ frequently with some cusses coming after it, lol.

    That bloomberg guy is a moron though. He has been saying this for 2 years now, ofc it's going to eventually come true and it doesn't mean he was even an insider or knew jack shit. This is the same idiot who claimed Sony was abandoning Japan, and then Sony investor briefing says they are investing in 1st and 3rd party Japanese games more then last gen lmao.

    Considering we knew this was going to happen at some point back at the Switch reveal when they talked about their eco system moving forward, anyone could be considered an insider.

    that kinda sums up 99.9% of all "leakers" and "insiders", just say a thousand things and something might stick, although in this case it was "repeat the same, obviously happening thing and pretend you're an insider". That's on a level of "predicting" or "leaking" that there will be a Playstation 6 or Final Fantasy 17

    We all know the switch pros release date is going to be when botw2 comes out anyway.

    Well, Nintendo rumors specifically are VERY unreliable and most of the time, people that got one thing right, got three things wrong, making it obviously just a lucky guess, rather than them being "insiders". Often they even delete old tweets where they "leaked" some of their "insider info" that was just wrong.
    Unless multiple actual reliable sources report on something at the same time (or single, really reliable people like Jason Schreier), one is better off just going "i won't believe it until it's announced".
    Switch Pro is rumored since... Switch release and none of the rumors had any basis so far.

    They've been on this for a few years now, I just hope they're finally bloody right. I've been holding off in the hopes for a hardware update like this, especially if it comes with an OLED screen which will be nice. Happy to pay a bit more for it, I've been really wanting to return to Nintendo games after remembering how much fun they are playing a few on my old 3DS.
