This is counterproductive, really. They will lose interested people when they find out they were lying. Didn't expect it from Nintendo, I always deemed them as honest and very ethical. First time I witness this kind of cheap excuse from them.

This is the reason many, myself included, still haven't paid to use online. Nintendo has a very slow approach to everything, they take so much time that when they finally resolve what most claim, it's too late already or people don't care about that specific thing anymore.

Bets with Conegamer:

Pandora's Tower will have an opening week of less than 37k in Japan. (Won!)
Pandora's Tower will sell less than 100k lifetime in Japan.
Stakes: 1 week of avatar control for each one.

The approach you describe is typically Japanese. They're always very slow to react, because they're scared of taking risks if they go too fast. In a company, for example, they will do multiple meetings and try to get the approval of everyone even remotely related before taking any decision...

Exactly, it's about the mindset of the company, and the fact that most decisions are still taken by  Nintendo Japan. I would believe that for example, Sony's internal non-japanese teams have much more freedom of action and that their words weigh much more than those of Nintendo's inner foreign teams.

I wonder if the switch to the paid service has killed the online community in certain games.

I know Arms had SOME people playing the online before the switch to paid service and then after that I couldn't find any games.

Would be curious to hear other's experiences with online player bases before and after the paid service was introduced because it seems like a decision that will hurt the games with smaller online communities the most.



I regret getting a full year on mine. Smash online is generally awful and I haven't played a single one of the NES offerings.

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?

Oh i just meant the dynamic themes like you get on ps4. Like the backgrounds and stuff. All we get on switc is white or black lol

Did not know. :)

Sounds cool.



Nintendo might be unhappy about that, but I am sure they are more happy about already having 8m subscribers. 25% of the userbase to start with comparing with PS plus at 39% is quite good, considering how much less digital savvy they are.



Where are the digital discounts, where are the good offers for silver coins in mynintendo, where are the SNES-N64 games, where is any form of practical voice chat...? Hell, where is Miiverse? A return of that service in any capacity would make a lot of people happy, and would justify a lot of the cost for many players.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

They need to step it up if they want to sell year cards. Integrated voice chat and free recent games like you get on XBL and PS+.

Not sure if this is the same article I read this morning but, from what I saw, they were planning to improve the service to get more people to subscribe. That's a good thing because in its current form, I don't want anything to do with their online service.

So they're finally getting a clue.

Hold your horses: d21lewis said there's a rumor that they might maybe be doing something unspecified to perhaps improve the service.
