Why do we give Nintendo a pass for not making a powerful console like Sony and Microsoft? Why do we let them be different for the sake of being different? A triangular wheel is different, but that doesn't make it useful.
If Nintendo wants to get third party support, they need to make a powerful console. It's as simple as that.
They don't want or need third party support. Nintendo has been most successful when doing their own thing like with the Wii and Switch. The one time they directly competed with Microsoft and Sony was with the Gamecube (which was the most powerful console at the time) and they got creamed.
I like that Nintendo does their own thing, they still make money regardless. Let Microsoft and Sony trip over one another and their console war thing of who has the biggest and more powerful. Nintendo doesn't need to get involved with that headache.
Consoles were historically more reliable, hassle free, and had a longer life span, compared to PC.
I still play on original hardware over emulation because setting up a PS2 emulator every system is a *****, I don't have a means to extract the system bios and need to pirate it, and the emulation can have bugs.
Same thing with PC games, every new Windows update it's a crap shoot if something gets broken or not.

As I am thankful President Donald Trump has been restored to Twitter. Even if he refuses to run in 2024, that would make him the only UNDEFEATED president in the history of the United States. 🥴👍
Also, Nintendo has mountains of third-party support, just because majority are ports, doesn't mean they don't count, Nintendo needed these ports to catch up with the gaming world.
They keep bringing bigger and bigger games to Switch and everyone keeps getting shocked.
How many of you were super surprised when you saw Skyrim on Switch alone?? Then DOOM 2016, Dark Souls, Dragon's Dogma, Diablo III, Assassin's Creed IV, Saints Row 3 & 4, Witcher ****ing 3, and even DOOM: Eternal and Outer World's are coming.
Then we have the countless cult classic ports that Xbox never got and still don't have (that Switch and PS4 do).
PC has been download only for the 10+ years. Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass is becoming more and more popular. Gamestop is failing. There is now 4 major store fronts for download only titles when there used to only one.
How would cloud based format crash the industry? That makes no sense. It will change but it won't crash it. Software developers will still sell software....
Tbh, if the gaming industry went DL only Iíd probably buy like two games a year. Collecting is half the fun, Iím already at 60% retro gaming as it is. I donít need another reason to ditch modern gaming.
Besieged by countless foes, his eyes they are aglow, longing for the fight. He stands upon a mound, doesn't aim the throw, just lets the hammer fly!
