All this arguing with my bud Wunray makes me think, wait, what would happen if Nintendo were to actually port their games to PC?
say they entertain the idea of selling their games on Steam, this is when it gets tricky, unlike Sony that devalues their AAA games like they were trash and won't make a big difference if its sold on PlayStation or PC, Nintendo is very
against losing value on their prices, they wouldn't sell Breath of the Wild on the store unless it was priced at $60, even then, would need to pay Valve/Microsoft 20% or 30%, a big disadvantage compared to what they earn now, i have no idea how much $60 Nintendo games would perform on those stores(i imagine, less than most people expect) when competition is fiercer.
There is also the risk if fans like Wunray stop buying Nintendo games on Switch to slowly move to play on PC,how that would affect their business if they are actively removing value from their system.
One possible solution would be opening their own virtual store and set the prices as they want, with full percentage of the profit, but it sounds messy and unlikely at this moment
old games or titles like Mario X Rabbids are already published by Ubisoft and could be easily sold on PC without changing anything as they hold less value for Nintendo, basically serving as 'bait' to bring people to their system, like their mobile games already do.
There are indeed options, but nothing that screams big benefit for Nintendo tbh, unless there is something im not seeing here
