    so what is the latest rumor about why we don't have the virtual console yet

    We are getting a few Nintendo VS system arcade titles from the same folks who doing the Neo Geo ports, so it's a start in the right direction.

    Supposedly Nintendo wants to make a Virtual Console a subscription service once they start charging for online.

    Which is hearsay at the moment.

    More likely it be a rewards program like PS+ is to PSN users or Games for Gold for XBLA users.

    Nintendo’s also been releasing some Wii games in HD for the Nividia Shield in China, which runs on the same tegra chipset as the Switch. This means it could be acting as a testbed of sorts for Wii games on Switch.

    Well the Shield and the Switch has similar hardware

    Downside is I see all those Wii games getting bootleg quickly in China

    The down side is I see those games not selling well because the Wii was already pretty bootleg friendly and I think Galaxy or Galaxy 2 was at one time the most pirated game in the world.

    All the Bayo games will be copped with no hesitation.

    Also quick question...I need to upgrade my SD, but for digital games, how would i move my save data between cards? or are digital game data saved to the console and not the card?

    so now that we're seeing third party support picking up on the switch (i haven't been able to say anything like this since before n64...) do we know these games are selling or are they just putting them out there and seeing how it goes right now?

    It is a feature you can toggle in the system settings for where game data is saved, I want to say they still have the save data locked to the Switch internal hard drive but if someone else knows for certain please correct me.

    As far as indie games, many devs reported that their games have sold the most on Switch. Can't say anything about the bigger games. I'd like to know how Skyrim is doing since that game is hugely popular. The eShop can give you a snapshot of where games stand in terms of sales.

    2K themselves came out and said they are happy with 2K18 sales on Switch. I know I saw Skyrim high on eshop charts as well as Doom at some point. I'm assuming everything is selling decently considering the install base. The only thing I know forsure that sold bad was FIFA, and that's because it was a bad port I believe, and EA themself pulled the whole "idk if switch owners like our games" thing.

    So safe to say everything is doing decent. If so, it could be that we are getting good ports and like interesting games atleast, and the fact that due to portability the Switch does have a higher factor of "i rather it buy it on Switch" as opposed to people not caring to buy 3rd party shit on wii u vs their other console

    I agree, the Switch is the most popular Nintendo console since the Snes.

    Bayonetta 1-2 AND 3 on the Switch? Dang, son, Nintendo is hitting home run after home run. Is Bayo 3 on the Switch gonna be like Bay 2 for the Wii U was where fans get super salty that it isn't a multiplat? I mean, I never understood why fans had a beef with Nintendo over the Bayo 2 exclusivity when Sony and Microsoft turned Bayo 2 down.

    Not AS much but that's to be expected since it didn't come out of nowhere like Bayo2. There's still people salty because Bayo released on PC, so there was the expectation that Bayo3 might be multiplatform (lol).

    Not sure what you talking about, I guess you might be referring to the XCX on Wii U.

    sheeeeit, Azure Striker Gunvolt is a lot of fun... I'd hope that little franchise continues with some update graphics later.

    Now with my honey Bayo in place, we still need announcements on Mario Maker and Hyrule Warriors. I figure Mario Maker at least is pretty much an inevitable thing. The longshot sadly is probably Wonderful 101.. I'm still hoping for that too, so I won't have any reason to go back to WiiU.

    *And now--minor nitpicks... it would be nice if Nintendo would add some more profile icons. They've only added one very small pack of new ones so far, in all this time. With all the great characters they have that is truly their own thing/IP, I figure this should be a simple thing.

    Mario Maker and W101 are the only port announcements I need to write off buying a Wii-U ever.
    It's not the end of the world, but you can see it from here.

    I just wanted W101 to have better load times. No touch screen would suck but at least give me that.
