With Sony games and Xbox games coming to PC. Do you think pretty soon we will see Nintendo games on the PC?

    While Nintendo has broaden their outlook of games beyond their own consoles, with a few games on mobile devices...  These games are general spin-offs of established franchises instead of direct ports of their games.

    Nintendo themselves will keep their core franchise releases (Mario, Zelda, DK, Kirby, ect.) on their own consoles & currently have no need to resort to 3rd party releases...  in fact, Nintendo executives laughed the Microsoft execs out of their boardroom when Microsoft wanted to buy the company.

    This doesn't mean that 3rd party developers won't do so...  In fact, you can find such games on Steam already.

    * Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 -- 6 NES games

    * Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 -- 1 SNES game (+ Wiiware)

    * Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 - 3 SNES games

    * Castlevania Anniversary Collection - 3 NES games (+GBY & SNES games)

    * Contra Anniversary Collection - 3 NES games (+GBY & SNES games)

    * Disney Afternoon Collection - 6 NES games

    This isn't an exhaustive list of games utilizing original game code that was used on Nintendo consoles, but it should give you some idea on what's out there.

    Nintendo never has or will release their content on pc.

    Other than emulators, no, I think not. Because Nintendo is not like the other companies - if they ported their games from their consoles to PC then they creativity and innovation that is Nintendo wouldn't exist.

    Probably not but if you have a good gaming computer you can run an emulator for the switch like yuzu or ryujinx and about %70 of the games run quite well on it since the switch is about as powerful as a cheap android tablet.

    doubt it, nintendo likes to keep all their games exclusive to their own consoles only

    Nintendo has no reason to do that if they sold over 80 million units in less than 4 years of their current hardware.  They want you to buy the hardware to play their games.

    Unlike Sony and Microsoft, Nintendo usually profits on each unit sold vs. selling for a loss in hopes to make up the difference in software profits.

    Sorry. Any scenario in which Nintendo doesn't retain 100% ABSOLUTE CONTROL over it's IP, is simply never going to happen.

    It'll be a cold day in hell when Nintendo games are released on non-Nintendo platforms. Even if Nintendo DID somehow release it's games on PC in some way, you can expect invasive DRM, or for the games to be available exclusively through a streaming service.

    I think that would only happen if they felt they could make money by doing it.  And, right now, that seems pretty remote.

    But, I would really like to see some of the old Nintendo classics remastered for the PC.  I would buy them if they weren't overpriced.
