    Microsoft on the whole has been a whole lot better since Ballmer left. They're contributing to Linux (to the point where you can install Ubuntu right through the Microsoft store), they've open sourced just about everything involved with .NET... I don't think the Xbox adaptive controller would've happened under Ballmer, but not only did they make it, they advertised it during the Super Bowl. Satya Nadella is a different cat... far more pragmatic. So, IMO, the push for Xbox to be everywhere, on every kind of device, while also not being afraid to partner with Nintendo, seems very much like his sort of idea, or, at the very least, one he would definitely endorse.

    If the switch becomes a portable xbox in terms of having access to a strong multiplayer community in the 3rd party game space, complete with cross play, that also plays all of nintendo's 1st party stuff and has nintendo's build quality, this will easily skyrocket into being my favorite console of the past 20 years.

    I'm hoping Nintendo is smart enough to realize/see this. The Switch is already a pretty compelling piece of kit. Imagine if it had XBL quality multiplayer support/chat/organization. And all Nintendo has to do is pay for it instead of investing in the architecture (and people!) necessary to roll their own.

    On Microsoft's side, they get their hooks into a portable gaming device, which is also the hottest thing since the Wii. Crossplay could mean increased revenue, depending on how it's implemented. I mean, how many people in the Switch threads have said "I'd buy another copy of X if it meant I could play with my friends on the other device while on the shitter/in my room?"

    It just makes so much sense for both parties to partner up with this. That doesn't mean it will happen to the extent I think it should, but the potential is pretty great.

    After messing around some more with it at home, more oddities but probably points to the console being the issue moreso than not:
    • Charging with the adapter works somewhat. It's finicky, and sometimes it will, sometimes it won't
    • If you joycons are attached and I plug in the adapter, the system suddenly recognizes the attached joycons. I can even unplug the adapter and the joycons stay connected. If I disconnect and reconnect the left joycon, it goes back to thinking it's not attached.
    • Dock works, but finicky, similar to the adapter issue

    So it looks like the USB port is partially busted. And potentially something with the left joycon rail. Both are super cheap parts, but videos show the use of high end tools I just don't have. I'm going to test the components with someone else's Switch to make sure it's what I think it is... but it looks like I'm in the market for a new console.

    Any bundles on the horizon? :?

    Worse case scenario is that the Switch and Xbox (likely including the next gen Xbox) will have crossplay titles. Which is a really freakin' good scenario.

    If the X1 (or even their next console) could stream games to the Switch that would be amazing. I know it's just a dream right now, but I know quite a few people that are currently PS4 and Switch owners that would probably be tempted to change next gen if it meant they could play AAA games without tying up the TV.

    I feel like I should reiterate that the notion of a Switch streaming Xbox games was entirely pulled from my ass as a pie-in-the-sky wish, and not meant to be a real rumor or anything even remotely bordering on legit. The SDK mentioned in the Polygon article seems to be for crossplay only. Letting people access the same servers (see: Minecraft), perhaps get achievements, and other things that a game developer would like access to to make their games fit the base XBL experience. Anything else is 100% wishcasting. In order of likelihood:

    1. More crossplay like with Minecraft, maybe with achievements
    2. Nintendo offloads the bulk of their online service to Microsoft... Good matchmaking, voice chat, whatever else can be offloaded to Azure to keep the Switch as lean as possible
    3. Dogs and cats living together... Complete pandemonium
    4. Xbox and Nintendo partnering in a historic way, with the Switch being the first Xcloud device, saving Microsoft from needing to build their own hardware. Sales increase across the board because now people can play CoD, Madden, whatever on the go, and none of it is a limited/hobbled Switch Edition. Even crazier (it's my fantasy, I can do what I want): certain 1st party Xbox games are Joy-Con friendly. Motion control in Halo or Gears.

    I give #4 < 0.0000000000000000001% chance of actually happening. But it would be epic. I think #2 is a reasonable hope, simply because it seems so obvious. Microsoft gets more money, Nintendo finally has a solid online service. Everyone wins.

    Actually yeah, as someone who flat out hasn't bothered with console gaming other than switch. Remote play using the switch would absolutely sell me on an xbox. If done right.

    And evidence suggests that neither Microsoft or Sony can actually compete in the handheld market. So it's actually a somewhat plausible strategy. I doubt they'll do it but I hope they will.

  • LD50LD50 Registered User regular
    "Offloading voice chat to azure" doesn't make technical sense. The switch is going to have to encode/decode audio either way. It also most definitely isn't something outside of the capabilities of the switch. Keep in mind Nintendo got in-game voice chat working on the original DS.

  • rahkeesh2000rahkeesh2000 Registered User regular
    Yeah as mentioned elsewhere, the main issue at this point is probably that Nintendo hasn't allocated any resources to do things like VoIP, in-game notifications or messages at the system level. They are instead giving all those resources to games to use as they see fit, so this cannot be fixed across the board without breaking old games or buying new hardware. The xbox SDK gives devs the option to hook into at least some of these things on xblive, but it is 100% up to the devs to decide if and how to implement them. Nintendo would probably have to do something analogous if they ever wanted those kind of features. (They could code most of the features into the OS itself, but games would have to "opt in" to use them and reserve appropriate resources.)

  • UncleSporkyUncleSporky Registered User regular
    Nintendo always goes on a bit of a journey with their system resources. I remember on the 3DS there was a time that they got the OS running more lightweight and freed up some extra RAM for all games moving forward, might've also been a "CPU unlock" like PSP did partway through its life (266 to 333 MHz), and another time when they just couldn't work with what they had anymore and sacrificed what was set aside for the OS in the background and gave it all to Smash 3DS. It rebooted into a mode that let it utilize all the 3DS's power and you couldn't do things like open up the web browser while running Smash. May have been other games that did that too.

    And now on the Switch we have games doing things like disable video recording in order to capture those resources (Fortnite and others).

    Sony does a similar thing with the Vita. For games that need the extra resources, there is a message on launch that says 'network features may be disabled for this game' or something to that effect. Nintendo could have system level voice chat and similar features and allow games to opt-out of them in the same way.

    "sound" is analog. It has to be encoded digitally before it can be transmitted digitally, and decoded before it can be played out of a speaker. It also needs to be compressed via some sort of low-latency compression before it can be transmitted for size/bandwidth reasons.

    The encoding/decoding is compression so that it takes a reasonable amount of internet bandwith to send and receive. Sending uncompressed audio to Azure to compress is rather pointless.

    I didn't know that this combo was something that exists: Child of Light Ultimate Edition / Valiant Hearts The Great War. Both are games I've wanted to get but never actually went for it. Price is just over 30€, so not bad for physical games.

    Oh crap, there's also Syberia 1+2 and 3 in the same package for 25€!

    Wow. Another game I've had my eyes for. Pretty nice, and for Finnish prices those aint bad.

    Has anyone played "Bass Pro Shops The Strike Championship Edition Bundle" (that is a bundle with a fishing rod)? I think that a fishing game could be nice for Switch, to play with my son.

    Another one is that Paw Patrol game, he is watching that show right now behind me. Anyone played that? Screens looked ok, seems to be a platformer?

    I think that those games are games that maybe critics won't give big score but ordinary folk could find them enjoyable (I am wary of critics reviewing certain type of games, they tend to be a bit biased towards something, well, better).

    Valiant Hearts is very good. I'd even argue that it's more incredible than CoL, but they are hard to compare since they're entirely different kinds games.

    Yeah but it is for reasons other than the combat system, such as being stupidly grindy and an overemphasis "one true build" character progression.

    • Dock works, but finicky, similar to the adapter issue

    So it looks like the USB port is partially busted. And potentially something with the left joycon rail. Both are super cheap parts, but videos show the use of high end tools I just don't have. I'm going to test the components with someone else's Switch to make sure it's what I think it is... but it looks like I'm in the market for a new console.

    Any bundles on the horizon? :?

    You could wait a bit to see if anything emerges about the rumored Switch remodel.

    I'm so torn on Dragon marked for death, it sounds right up my alley but got panned so hard in reviews, but then reading the reviews I'm like "that doesn't sound so bad" and the 2 champ pack is only 19$ cad...argh

    Is it at least as good as Axiom Verge? I just recently finished that and loved it.
