Most backlash come from fact that people now need to pay for something that was free before,
that's a normal and expected, I mean even Sony/MS were in same position, in year from now people will get used to fact that you need to pay for online.

Also, online is far from great, but we talking about $20 per hole year, thats just one 1/3 of price of one AAA game.

The thing is your paying for something that isnt better than it was when it was free.

Also nes roms.... a big meh.

Agree 100% with the first point. Nintendo is charging for an online service that’s the same as it’s always been. The paywall has not brought with it superior service. Also that Nintendo app has become a punchline, and cloud saves should really be gratis.

But I disagree with the second point. I’m really enjoying this NES Netflix-style service. According to my play time history, I’ve logged 10+ hours in it, thanks to family and friends who enjoy the old-school accessibility of the titles therein. Paying $17 a year for that (I have a split family plan) is fair, in my mind.

Well you have now more online games for playing, more option, online app (lol), NES Mini games (for start) with online function, extra eShop discounts for subscribers..

Nah, Nintendo will just continue to do it's own thing anyway and to be clearly honest, I'm kind of indifferent to this matter in the end since so few of my games are touched by this issue cuz of my single player focus experience (or manily my uses of online feature). I won't drown because I had to pay for 20 bucks with basic online features (I don't even have it right now actually ...). Voice chat ? I never used it before nor will I. Classic librairy ? It will grow out with time and we'll probably have SNES games added in a year or two.

But, just a reminder, that it is ok for people to wish for better things, there's nothing bad in doing so ... well, until you reach pure unreasonable entitlement for wanting an exact carbon copy of their competitiors while also paying 3x/4x less than they do.

I don't want an exact carbon copy of Games With Gold or PlayStation Now, I want Virtual Console back, because that was way better than what we're getting now.



its pretty meh I only got it for splatoon 2.then again I was never impressed with psplus or xbox live either so meh

The library will expand over time, just like the Virtual Console. I mean how was the VC back on Wii when it first launched?

Unfortunately, if you want to get more obscure and high-profile third party VC titles, I think they will be less frequent as third party companies are doing more compilations to get the money for themselves. Sega has its Sega Ages, Genesis Classics Collection, among others, Capcom just released Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection and the Mega Man (and X) Collections, Konami released Castlevania Requiem, and so forth. So what we were getting then will likely not be got be what we could get if VC still existed.

So you're saying we should instead be asking for more compilations of older games?

And here's Nintendo coming up with lame-ass excuses as to why Switch Online sucks.



Can't stand reviewtechusa.

No, I'm just saying that third parties may not be as willing to release past games as part of the VC service because they may find it more appealing and more profitable to release compilations and collections rather than get a cut of the profits under the VC service.

And Furukawa was not making an excuse based on the link you provided me. All he just said is:

"We need to further enhance the content of the service for the subscriber base to reach a certain size, so that is what we’re working on, with the understanding that the time it will take to do so will be measured in years.”

Where is the excuse he's making? He's just saying they're working on making the service more appealing.



Guess he saw the views the last video made cuz he just done another one,lol.

Very lacklustre, even for its price. And it's not looking like Smash Ultimate will be getting better servers.
