Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo online 2.0

Nintendo online now has more than 30 million subscribers.. It's cheap, we get access to nostalgic NES and SNES titles.. Tetris99 and SMB35. cloud and few other things.. This is the "best case scenario" we could hope for when Nintendo also started charging for online.

Free N64 games.. that would be nice.. but we all know that there will come some N+ thing.. a more expensive subscription option at some point.. How will they do it?

I think they will come out very soon.. guns blazing.. N64 - some GC games - some Wii Games - mayby even a WiiU game.. and I expect atleast 2 "nintendo software" And lastly that they will make some kind of N+ member exclusive reward store..program.. we gonna like :)

Did you know that Nintendo is now changing its 18 years-old online infrastructure? They're going from NEX to NPLN and Monster Hunter Rise is the first title that will support it. Btw, the Monster Hunter demo was a way to test how NPLN worked under load.

No I didn't know that.. interesting.



I suspect they will increase the price of Online by like $10-20 more for a year once N64/Gameboy are added. Then they will add GameCube, GBA, and DS for free, before upping it another $20 (for a total of $60 a year) for Wii/DS/3DS. I don't even have issues with that. There are a ton of games I appreciate having access to for this level of pay.

You got some good imagination to think they would increase the price of NSO by 200% in 2 years. 

At best, I say they'll increase by 5$ top.

This is great news, especially considering Nintendo's online has been known for a while for being pretty janky and a game like MH Rise will need solid online infrastructure to hit its full potential.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Btb for those who tested the MH Rise demo last month, how was the online ?

I honestly thought the thread was going to be about this. 



My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first. 

Cheap? It's pathetic it cost anything at all, charging customers to online multiplayer is beyond ridiculous. I don't care if it comes along with SNES and NES games you can just remove them and let me play online the Switch games that I've already paid for

There are many titles which need a better online infrastructure. Splatoon 2, Mario Tennis, Mario Kart... everything lags and players with a solid cable upload are in disadvantage to the ones with shaky WLAN. I really should be the other way round.
