The reception to the Nintendo Switch online service has been less than stellar. Click here to learn more about the concerns some gamers have.
It’s really cringey when you remember that’s Reggie said Nintendo delayed this online because “When we launch something, we want it to be great. We wanted to make sure that it is a robust, well-executed online environment, and for the $20 annual subscription fee, the consumer says, 'This is a no-brainer. I want to participate. I'm all in.’” This service doesn’t look like the year long delay did anything to improve its quality. Plus it seems like Nintendo’s hoping people don’t hold having a required subscription service against them as much just because it happens to be the cheapest option.
Its the Dollarstore of Online gaming.
in this case, you don't get what you pay for
3DS & Wii-U had a better online infrastructure lol.
I mean even Nintendoenthuiasts heavily critisized Nintendo Switch Online, swallow your fanboyism and accept that Nintendo is going all crazy with this.
If you are in the US and bought the online service you can also download the Japanese online app. Play NES games with that because you get the FM sound chip that NES games did not have. Zelda theme esp.
why is anybody surprised about this? and why does anybody still support this incompetent excuse of a company?
Because the games.
