Locked: Nintendo listens to fans. Free multiplayer, slashes controller prices.

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo listens to fans. Free multiplayer, slashes controller prices.

Nintendo has listened to their true fans and decided to make 2-player gaming free of charge for their new home console. Unlike with Wii-U where a second controller can only be found refurbished for ~$100, Switch will come with an extra controller free.

Multiplayer gaming for more than 2 players will also be cheaper. Whilst competitors Sony and Microsoft continue to charge a high price for low tech SD-rumblepads, Nintendo slashes the price of controllers and increases their feature set instead. 

A typical 8-player game like Super Bomberman R will now only cost an extra $240(3x$80) on Switch compared with $420 for an extra 7xPS4 controllers ($60e).

Nintendo will also be unlocking local multiplayer on their handheld consoles for the first time without the need to buy multiple systems. This service will cost $0/month.

So that's Nintendo's latest local muliplayer, handheld system with 2 controllers and Nintendo's latest home console + 2 controllers for just $299.

Nintendo will be selling two accessory bundles, one with 2 joycons, grip, 2 wrist straps, extra dock, HDMI cable and AC adaptor for $199 or $299 with a second Switch included. Gamers can upgrade the 2 joycons to a d-pad controller for a small fee or exchange for cash via a website called EBay.

I open the thread. I see no link. I wonder - is this a joke?

Sauce?



Edit: Seems I was trolled.



This is you trying to spin the joycons as whole controllers. This is amusing but it doesn't justify the prices Nintendo has set.

Is posting fake news ban worthy?

It is... He isn't referring to online multiplayer but the ability to detach the joycons and play with one other person. Its a clickbait title

I'd hope so. Having been at other forums where it is allowed, I found it nice to see a thread and go "oh thats true". I rather not have to be on the look out for fake threads.

Can I also do the exchange on craigslist?



That's actually a good thread from you for a change.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
