    Yeah, I get that. The indie games represent a majority of the third support they've got right now, so I understand the need to prop them up as if they were big system-selling headliners.

    It's still pretty amazing though, that they would. It makes me think of the Ouya in that sense.

    In any event, I can't wait to see what other quality exclusive indie games Nintendo will get in the future.

    I like that they are "propped up". Indie games are no different from major publisher titles, and many of these developers deserve a good spotlight now and then.

    That's a fine opinion and all, but I'm pretty sure the reason why they're propped up this much is because Nintendo doesn't have a whole heck of a lot else going for them on the third-party front right now.

    Gotta imagine the indies enjoy seeing the lack of major third-party support, too, because it gives them more of a fighting chance to sell to game-starved Nintendo-only system buyers.

    I'm calling this right now. Switch will be known as the Nindies console.

    While there will be a handfull of "AAA" titles on the Switch, the console will be defined by its Nindies such as Steamworld Dig 2, Fast RMX, etc. and will be known as the ultimate indie gaming device due to its portability and extended battery life for less demanding indie titles.

    So Microsoft announced their own little indie thing to rival that of Nindies for the Xbox. They call them the Onesies.

    People said the same thing about the Wii U. Just saying.

    The Switch has a chance of actually selling well unlike the Wii U, in which case it'd make a decent platform for indie devs considering how easy it apparently is to develop for. We'll have to see.
