I think we're all just massively disappointed right now and we should probably give a bit of the ol "benefit of the doubt" before anything else. They have an entire Treehouse presentation tommorrow. however, I agree with some of the issues people have said.
It's entirely dumb that it's 299$. It's ridiculous. The paid online is FINE. you guys are complaining because you're expecting Nintendo to have a bad online, or to have limited third party online games. we don't know if ANY OF THOSE circumstances are true. If they had the reputation of Playstation - no one would care. However, I DO agree that we should be skeptical. But if they have Smash, Mario Kart, Splatoon, Pokken tournament, and a few third party online games...sorry to say guys but paid online makes sense. They have online games that are huge. Why wouldn't they want to profit on it? I agree that free online would be better becaues we're ALL skeptical of Nintendo's online. THATS WHY ITS FREE till Fall, and EVEN IN FALL you get a free trial for their subscription service.
