In Topic: CAGcast #488: Unready for Launch

A while back I tried to get the Cagcast top analysts to predict the PSVR sales. I believe I said 1.5 million in 6 months, and now the news is almost a million sold against a target of 1 million in six months. I didn't get a response on a sales prediction from any of the hosts.

Predictions: The Cagcast will ignore this news or spend a good 10 minutes convincing us these are underwhelming numbers.


Prediction: I'm going to ignore everything about PSVR.

Shipwreck. . . Totoro makes more sense when you find out that Totoro is the Grim Reaper and the girls die at the end of the movie.
I'm not making this up. . .

The maker of the film debunked this theory.

The Switch has carts and SD storage. That's your different requirements. Because of the SD card slot and the fact most will buy carts, there is no reason for Nintendo to offer more storage than is necessary.

Besides, the more internal storage they include, the higher the pricepoint anyway, so either they charge everyone more and include more internal storage or they charge less and let just those that need more storage buy an SD card. Seems reasonable.


And a $650 iphone only having 32gb just shows that much more expensive mobile devices only have 32gb as well. I don't think Nintendo is being extra cheap here.


32gb seems reasonable. Apple has that amt on their $650 iphones and they have no SD card slot.

The main way of buying games on a Switch is still going to be carts.


IF you're digital heavy consumer who downloads Dragon Quest Heroes then you're going to want an SD card anyway even if the Switch had double the storage.


IF they increased the storage on the Switch every customer would pay more not just those that will only download games.


It's not just choosing downloadable retail games. It's eShop, it's DLC, it's Virtual Console, it's game updates, it's system updates, it's any media apps, it's screen captures. That 32 GB is going to go quick for everyone.

Shipwreck is being pedantic.

1.) the switch is not out and he is going by a picture
2.) the switch is a portable system and that means it needs to have the adapter at the plug. If it was in the shell, he would whine about the need to buy another one for travel
3.) it doesn't appear to be any larger than an nvidia shield adapter of which he said nothing.

cheapy can harp on price but neither the xbox one or ps4 is a portable system. They are limited. Compared the tablets, Switch is competitively priced, similar memory and actually has decent controllers. The switch is a portable system you can play at home, it's not a home system you can take with you.

also, we have a house cleaner that comes once every 2 weeks. It's not that much and well worth it.


Except the Switch isn't being positioned as a portable system, but rather a home console that you can take with you. Once I plug the cable into the dock and then into the wall, it's never leaving that position.

I never plugged my Shield into an outlet behind my TV stand and the Shield plug is designed much differently. It's more like a standard USB adapter like what an iPhone uses. This makes it so it wouldn't block other outlets with the box or the way the cable attaches to the box.
