Nintendo Is Unhappy About Surge in Short Term Switch Online Plans

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo Is Unhappy About Surge in Short Term Switch Online Plans

When they release the SNES games I'll be happy for that price (I did the year one). Currently I'm less than happy, but it's chicken fee so who cares? If they out 64 games on, I'll be very happy. If GameCube comes, I'll be flipping through the ceiling.

We waited this long for a service like this and the end result is nothing but dissapointing.
I was really looking forward to this but every time i think about buying the 12-month plan i ask myself "why?" Why bother when it's just NES games.

It's amazing how Nintendo didn't learn a lot from the Wii U days: their game development strategy was deeply flawed (very strong at first, very lacking after) to a point where they admit it was the reason to lower their forecast for the FY; after years of watching the competition make a lot of money of services like NSO, they came up with the worst possible solution: NES games... only.

The company that probably has the best and more broad catalogue in gaming, of the three, is the one that fails to live up to their legacy content.



"It is critical that these members want to continue using the service for a long time rather than letting it expire"

Kind of odd to hear from Nintendo but it sounds like they plan to join the "give everything an online mode" bandwagon.  Maybe some Mario "games as a service" experiences on the way?  A Zelda version of Sea of Thieves?  Probably more online games like Splatoon or ARMS on the way, as well.  Metroid Battle Royale?

Maybe when they make a good online game I will continue my subscription (yes, that is a diss at Splatoon).



STRAIGHT TO DAMNATION?YOU'RE THE TERRORIST HERE!

 

 

its absolute garbage the entire OS for switch and online system. At the very least we should be getting Snes games . I swear Wii u was 10 times better. Switch is so boring when you turn it on no themes no dynamic anything just a few options, cant even message freinds. Im getting really disappointed now. It came out so strong as well but yeah its been 2 years now and still crap. Dont get me started on the store my god thats just full off about 950 shovelware titles no joke.

"Nintendo Is Unhappy About Surge in Short Term Switch Online Plans" is not same thing like "Nintendo plans to "boost" Switch Online after surge in short subscription plans".

I actually like the simplicity side of it, but those bolded parts are something that i too miss and i can't understand why they aren't there.
It's not that hard.

Btw, what do you mean with the dynamic comment?

In a way, yes.

"It is critical that these members want to continue using the service for a long time rather than letting it expire, and for that we need to build relationships with consumers and enrich the content" he said.

"With this in mind, we are currently planning ways to boost the appeal of the service on a yearly basis... It is very important to our future business and we are giving it our all."

The way they talk about it does feel like they are actively looking to increase their offering due to the service being unnatractive for long term subscriptions.



for 20$ a year I'll do not expect miracles

Ohh and the title/article is a bit missleading



If it isn't turnbased it isn't worth playing   (mostly)

And shepherds we shall be,

For Thee, my Lord, for Thee. Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy command. So we shall flow a river forth to Thee And teeming with souls shall it ever be. In Nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritūs Sancti. -----The Boondock Saints

You're still giving up 20 $ for online + some NES games basically, lacking cert. but we probably shouldn't be entitled to get a carbon copy of other service's when we're also paying 3x/4x less than them.

If they can simply beef up the games offering, then I'll be happy to shell out those 20 bucks instead of going with a month subscription when I feel like it.
