Reggie on Switch's Initial Success- Nintendo Switch Online to provide "robust online experience"

This month’s issue of Game Informer features a new interview with Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime.

I’m not holding my breath on Nintendo providing a superb online experience. They’ve let me down for the entire 21st century thus far

The people disagreeing with you are fools that will only be let down.

People need to temper expectations for online that is a third of the price of the competitors. Sales and discounts of xboxline and psnow notwithstanding. If it is great though, let the comparisons begin for getting your money's worth from those other services.

I really hope so.. I dont want to get my hopes up only for them to put out something "passable" instead of robust.. I also really want them to release all the great 80s/90s arcade titles in addition to whatever virtual console thing they do.. It will be so awesome to have those on the go and you just pass a joycon to a friend to game it out.. Xmen, tmnt, Punisher, MK,etc.. I love neo geo n all but theres way more out there..

Nintendo can’t even handle basic voice chat properly

Who seriously has faith they’ll still somehow provide a quality subscription service when Friend Codes are still a thing

Someone is going to have to explain the friend code issue, as I've never entered a friend code and have tons of friends on my Switch. Also, if I'm missing something, how is this different from gamertags and what not?

The only difference between Switch FC's and Sony/MS Gamertag is FC is harder to remember. Otherwise, it acts the same. Put it in once and you're done. The only positive of an FC over a set Gamertag is I can change my name anytime I want. FC is not the best solution but sure is a hell of a lot better than the DS era where every game required it's own FC...ugh

I dont expect any huge new changes but some stable and basic functionality should be in there.. Its $20/year so we'll see.. Ill remain cautiously optimistic..

I only care if they somehow manage to make it so you don't need that phone app to talk to people online 💁
