Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Petition against Nintendo Switch Online Service

I decided that what Nintendo is doing with its online decisions is wrong. And it's harmful for us the consumers. That's why I initiated this petition. Not for Nintendo. For you. I want you to help yourselfs and everyone with a Nintendo Switch to take back what have always been ours. In the petition I explain with more detail why I'm asking you to NOT PAY for the Nintendo Switch Online System on September 18th.

And if you don't agree with me, that's fine. But if you are with me on this one, please spread this petition everywhere you can. Thank you.

Good luck. You'll need it, because the rest of us will pay for the subscription like the sheep that we are.



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

if it was more than just $20 a year, yeah. though they are showing some pretty trashy anti-consumerism by deleting cloud saves if your sub collapses.

I know this will probably won't work at all... but I believe I have to try. If we are together on this, we can change this situation. We just need to believe it's possible



How else will I play Ultimate online?

True dat.

But in all serious, I was always going to pay for it for just the online anyways. It's just too big of a component in gaming this day and age, even if I used Xbox One or PS4 I'd cough up the $60 no questions asked just for the online access alone. A video game system without online play just isn't imaginable to me, GBA is the only console I've ever owned without it after all.



BTW, if I don't answer in the next ours in this thread, is not because I don't want to. I'll answer everybody when I can xD

You had me almost convinced with your petition, but then I read your advertisement for NES, SNES, N64 and probably GC games on the service, and now I am totally hyped and can't wait to hand over my cash.

If that's what you think, I'm ok with it. But... don't you think that it would be better if it was free like it has been since the DS came out? Don't you think that this is something we have always had for free and now they are taking it away from us? Don't you think that if we stand up and hold on without online on Switch, even if it's just by a short period of time... we could make things like they were before?

I repeat: if you don't agree with this, I won't insist on you. But if you think I'm even just a little bit right... then you should consider making something.



I think this plan lacks ambition. Why would you set the signature goal at 100? Why not go for 10000? That would really show them!
