    Nintendo will charge a hefty price on Switch. Cmon it's Nintendo we're talking about.

    Thx for basically Saying what i already did xD
    and also. the Outfits got their Original Colors on PC and all other Nintendo-Versions of Terraria. So i wouldn't count it as "Exclusive Items".

    I am saying to take a selfie with one of the guardians off the plateau, you know, the moving ones. Then you can use your horse >:)

    According to Reggie in an interview he did today, it's the developers/publishers that decide what price to sell their games at. Slightly contradictory to what I was told here when I was asking about the 3DS version's ludicrous price, but what can ya do...

    Don't care to have this again - but since you are implying untoward things: That is what one might refer to as a "technically correct, but pragmatically false" statement.

    One might consider that it's exactly as you were told before: games are priced with strong "advice" based on other titles considered to be "comparable". Unless you think it's an accident that games tend to gravitate to certain price points on each platform.

    I get that you take issue with the 3ds port - some points being quite valid - but the "relative price" argument holds no more weight now than it ever has. (See: the countless times we have discussed the "just because Re-Logic didn't raise the price over time ala Minecraft doesn't suddenly render anything that costs more somehow a bad value")

    Otherwise we are back into that same chat. You are free to believe as you wish, as always...just as anyone is free to evaluate the value of a thing versus its price and decide if they feel it's worth their hard earned cash. Now, back on topic, shall we? :)

    I still blame Nintendo..and I do because Pokémon games from mega years ago are still priced around 30 bucks..that's something ONLY Nintendo does. Not complaining as Terraria is worth it on ANY device.

    Oh come on, its not that bad, right?
    I kid, of course. Those guys are a pain to deal with. They are literally everywhere, in the most random places too.

    Ok, first off (no h8 m8) i think terraria first need to be focused about the more important. The launch of 1.3 on CONSOLE. So i dont get it why you already start with NintSwitch. As i said no hate.

    There are currently 80+ games under development, one of which just so happens to be Terraria. There's a lot to look forward to!

    I ended up getting to try the Nintendo Switch and I was completely impressed. The system itself is EVERYTHING the Playstation Vita should've been when it comes to controls. The Switch will be a perfect alternative to buying a super high grade laptop for playing Terraria. Just playing the new Zelda was a blast.

    Nobody knows they said mobile gets it after Console. And Console will release in Q2 so maybe Q3. Not really sure.

    Switch would count as console I think but still. The Switch has enough power to run 1.3 so effectively it makes killing the Moon Lord EVERYWHERE possible. That being said I wonder how the battery life of the system will be while playing Terraria outside of the dock. I don't think it'll drain that much.

    I wonder if the game supports touchscreen in portable mode?
    That would be great, even if it couldn't be used on TV mode, building using a touchscreen is always awesome

    In this case, no it doesn't count as console and if, they needed to build terraria in switch again while working on console that will be a huge problem.

    I don't think they'd use mobile as a base when the Switch can handle the full console experience.
     
  20. I'm pretty sure it can handle the full PC experience, actually.
