I do agree the subscription service is a mess but subscriptions aren't a mess in all cases, Live was once a mess until PS+ brought competition, PS+ started off as less of a mess than live did but it was still a mess but today both of those are the two leading games services and I for one would never go back to the utter disgrace PS online was before PS+ and this is coming from someone who was vehemently against plus and live until 8th gen came around and I seen the benifets first hand.
Nintendo need this, the consumers need it but it's just a mess right now and they need to release with something more substantial. Petition for them to do better, petition for them to have physical drive saves, petition for more cost effectiveness, petition for more price point options (Even though if they up the content the 25 euro a year is proper good value for a stable online service alone, especially when it looks like they'll eventually add a games pass like service under that price point in the future)
I'm not saying live and Ps+are perfect but when you see the wonders of not having DNS errors or unstable downloads etc. as rhe difference between 2006-2013 free PSN to PS+ is immense in just qaulity of life aspects alone. If Nintendo use the revenue and handle it well, to make the service great it'll be well worth it. Nintendo badly needs to enter the online space full and proper and they're aren't going to dump a ton of money into it with no return. At that price point it'll be ages before they see a turn around anyway. You can't fight positive change on this one dude but you can be loud enough to direct and shape that change.
