Bethesda is firmly on that Switch train and I love it.

Hope the versions are fine.

No interest in playing them on my Switch, but I will be interested to see the Digital Foundry breakdown on them. I can't imagine they hold up well.

Guess they trust this system a lot.

It's a solid strategy. Be the first third party to really go all in on Switch. I mean, there's not too much competition yet. Might change if the Switch continues to sell this well.

Amazing if they can get Doom running at 60fps (even with visual downgrades, of course). I’d double dip for sure!

I just checked on PC it requires 68 GB of space. I bet the Switch version will be smaller but I'm sure it will require an SD card.

I really can't wait to see how much of a downgrade they have to force on the game to get them running on the Switch.

I'm shocked they can get it to work at all haha.

That Doom footage they showed looked rough, like really rough, graphically. Still portable version of the game is pretty cool.

Once again, Vulkan support on the Switch. Hell, perhaps this is exactly why the Switch supports Vulkan.

You misunderstand me. Switch is a powerful little console, but it's still no PS4. And DOOM and Wolf 2 are pushing the graphical boundaries quite far, so it's just impressive that they got this over to a portable...assuming it still looks good.

Please don't take this as me shitting on the Switch, because that is not my intention at all. It's my favorite console right now.

I lost it upon initially hearing the announcement, but now I'm not so sure. I should love the idea of having DOOM 2016 on the go, but its filesize is a bit obnoxious. Would a DOOM BFG port be a possibility? I am really curious to see how New Colossus performs, though. No doubt there will be some visual sacrifice, and I wonder how many people would rather opt for portability with that title.

One significant difference here is PS4 and XBO games install entirely to the HDD. Switch games on cart do not require a mandatory install unless the size of the game exceeds the capacity of the cart itself.

If Bethesda cheaps out and uses a 8GB or 16GB Cart for the game this could be an issue, However I expect the Switch version to have lower texture detail thus a smaller overall file size. High res texture data won't be taking up massive file size in this case because they likely won't apply. (Remember ideally they are targeting a 900p resolution so put that into consideration). They might get away with using a 32GB cart under that circumstance.

DOOM can *run* on something like a GPD Win so it might not look too bad, probably 30fps tho.
