I don't get it. The switch is doing really well, and you would think more developers would be rushing to get their games on the console, but whenever they are interviewed about it, they usually respond with something lame like, "the switch is a interesting platform but we don't have anything announced for now. We will see how it does later on."

Yes, I know we have games like Skyrim, doom, dark souls, NBA 2k, and la noire, but shouldn't there be more? I know the switch isn't as powerful as the ps4, but there are plenty of previous gen games that could come over as well as less power hungry current gen games. So what gives?

System is too weak. Can't even handle Xenoblade Chronicles 2 in handheld mode.

Because the system is not even a year old yet. Almost. Most consoles don't have much to offer in its first year

I can live without the third party support, but I'm just wondering why the switch doesn't have more of it.

I know the ps4 didn't have a lot of huge titles in its first year, but at least there was a lot announced.

Because the switch can't handle most AAA games made for ps4 and xbox and they won't stop making games for two consoles (and pc) to make games for the switch
Final Fantasy XII is the greatest video game of all time.
