Pretty neat deal from nintendo, I will probably buy at least one set of these vouchers. I still prefer my games physical though. It should be noted though that you will still get 5% back from My Nintendo gold coins.

Alright, more sales for Xenoblade 2. Gotta bump those numbers up.



"1-2 Switch"

*pukes



This is OK I guess. You basically get NSO for free with the cost savings if you plan on buying 2 titles a year.
I mean, I like my carts, but sames like Splatoon or Mario maker kind of don't work without online anyway.



At this point I'd get online even if it did nothing but this discount.

So I know this is a dumb question but I assume when Nintendo means "paid" this means promotional free online like the Twitch Prime free 12 months doesn't count? Or do they just mean paid as in the subscription in general?



It's better than nothing, but I won't be buying for now. Most new Switch games out in Australia at around $64, so still cheaper than two games with this deal which will be $135 in Oz. I understand that they're of course trying to make money, but it would be much better if the NSO sub just granted a 5-10% discount on all eShop games.



In a straight conversion that's £77 which if that's the price in the UK it's a steal as games here are around £45-£49.



Really good if you prefer digital versions of games, unless you're like me and never go above $40 for digital.



It's merely better than nothing. If you've been waiting for discounts on older first party games, you've already had multiple chances to buy digital versions for $40 instead of $60, because Cyber Monday, Christmas, Mario Day and Easter were accompanied by such offers. So this is something that is only useful to get upcoming games on their release day. In that sense, you can have a 12-month-subscription with a net loss of nothing, because you get the money you pay for the subscription completely back.

I'll stick to my no online, screw digital mantra. As most of you should know, another one of Nintendo's troll tactics is to grant 5% cashback on digital games, but only 1% cashback for physical games. But it's not hard to obtain physical copies at less than the MSRP on release day, so the cashback differential is commonly offset, making the decision to buy physical games very easy.



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