    Yeah....sounds great.
    Not to defend the switch, because I don't support the idea and strategy behind the console, but most people here bought Xbones or PS4's at launch, and neither of them had a great title at that point either, much less two great titles. Naming more than a small handful of must-own exclusives for either is still hard to do without leaving mainstream gaming -- so if nintendo puts out a couple more really high quality titles, they've already caught up.

    Yeah, but those machines were the obvious place to play third party titles(for non PC folks), so they had value beyond their exclusives.

    Nintendo's only selling point is the first party exclusives, so they need more to justify the cost of the hardware. That's the price Nintendo pays for choosing to be an independent bubble in the market.

    I can agree with this reasoning, but if we're going with the "name x good games for it" sort of preamble to a listwar route, I have a hard time accepting multiplats as a legitimate answer. Multiplats belong to the generation, not any one console. And yes, as you mention, I buy multiplats on the PC at this point - so a console, to me, is really only defined by and as good as its exclusives. It sounds like PS4 is trying to pick it up a little but, by and large, this generation has been a snoozefest on that front.

    It was a joke, in case it wasn't clear.
