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.
Not even waiting on the Skyrim "test". although I think we all know its gonna do well
Guess they trust this system a lot.
Wonder what the file size is lol
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.
Or, you know, Switch is actually fairly powerful, and id's engines scale well.
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.
Once again, Vulkan support on the Switch. Hell, perhaps this is exactly why the Switch supports Vulkan.
THRU LIFE LOL
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.
I wonder how big of an SD card you need to install DOOM though? Isn't it like 60 GB on other systems?
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.
very cool though. Doom is great and I bet WII will be too
