Forums - Nintendo Discussion - What the literal heck Nintendo?!?

I wanna clarify , It's not Nintendo First Party low WII VC low sales It's 3rd party . Someone from twitter pointed it out . Why It's 50 $

I'm the first in Vgchartz to bring this , others already posted other forums,  You can't really blame that company because Wii VC didn't market certain 3rd parties games in 7th generation for low sales I guess?

The idea of offering DLC in the premium online plan isn't so bad actually. If it was a global thing; all DLC (or well, all normal ones, I guess huge game expansions wouldn't be smart business-wise).

If you give the DLC maybe that sparks some base game sales.

Release more N64 games on Switch, a la Super Mario 64, and I might consider buying them.

Put them in a ripoff subscription however... hard pass!

Word is out why the Expansion Switch online is 50$ , culprit Wii VC low sales . Licenses costs.

Wii shop was ass to buy anything on. So it's Nintendo's fault.

Maybe if Nintendo cleared Eshop on switch of so much shit and organize it better so retro games had their own category and listed by retro system. Browing Eshop for games is like browing Amazon Prime for TV and movies or the DVD discount bin at a Walmart.

Defintiely , Nintendo didn't market those games properly , and Konami and Capcom are in the mix , so says Emily Rogers of twiiter.

The only reason why this seems expensive is because NSO has been so cheap up till now.

Lots of people will display a kneejerk reaction along the lines of "what a ripoff," but it won't take long until they enter the bargaining phase where the price isn't so bad because it's only ~$4 per month or less than $1 per week for access to a growing library of classic video games that can be played anywhere they wish. People will begin to remember how much more money they've wasted on games they didn't like, so paying $50 for the known quality of classic games - games they know they like - isn't much, really.



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

It's not just $50 though. It's $50 every year until you die or no longer play games. That definitely constitutes a ripoff to me.



It wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't a bunch of retro games and one recent-ish titles DLC, but it is. And it looks especially bad value when you have whatever Sony or Microsoft are offering (especially the latter) in terms of content for a subscription service.

Though people are still going to get it to play classic Mario and Zelda so you can't really blame them for bumping up the price. Tbh I'm surprised its taken them this long to offer a PS Plus and Xbox Live like service, including cost.

Growing library is what Gamepass offers. This is a set on stone library that Nintendo don't make fully ready to play and instead will release each 2 months to fool idiots into believing the library is really growing, otherwise they would subscribe, play everything they want in some months and then unsubscribe



Price aside and how much would anyone pay for old games, let's to the central question when paying for online services:

Has anyone questioned how low quality is Nintendo online service actually is? The experience in both Steam online and PS Online are overall just better and smoother

Splatoon 2 still a sorrow to play with so many players dropping every single match. After 3 years I was expecting some progress, but it never quite get any better

In Animal Crossing time wasted travelling between islands is also excruciatingly high. Try to make a party with 6 friends, you better have patience to wait at least 30 minutes until everyone is in
