In case you’ve ever wondered whether Nintendo will ever dramatically expand the number of games playable on the Switch by adding support for a game streaming service like Google Stadia or even Xbox Cloud, the answer is sadly no. After an industry analyst laid out some reasons it would make sense for all parties involved, another insider said that Nintendo wasn’t at all open to the idea.
The conversation started on Twitter after users watching Microsoft’s Game Stack event noticed a Nintendo Switch on the shelf behind the presenter. Industry advisor Mat Piscatella suggested that a “Xbox Cloud app on Switch seems a slam dunk where everyone wins,” and continued to lay out the reasons such a decision would make sense.
Some of these replies… phew.
What do some of you think the point of cloud gaming is if not to make every screen a potential place to game?
