Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa had a few interesting comments about Switch Online during the company’s latest financial briefing. Furukawa started out by stating that the service “had a good launch”.
Ok, so nothing was actually said?
I had to buy it to get the comments and help in dark souls. But apart from that it's a terrible service. Despite being "cheap" by some fan boys. It isn't cheap if you're getting nothing much for your money.
Yeah I had no incentive to even pay a measely 20 bucks for this... At least at launch.
I understand. I like playing online, having cloud saves and playing old NES games, but I hear what you're saying.
Eventually probably with Smash Bros or Pokemon Let's Go I'll subscribe. I'd like more perks. N64 games, GameCube, free games monthly. Cloud saves shouldnt be locked behind a paywall. I'd also like to see how well Smash Bros performs online. Brawls online was unplayable for me.
I would surely hope so as their online offering is severely lacking. I dunno how about you give is our virtual console back Nintendo! Smoothninja: Agreed, i wouldnt even pay 5$ a year for this.
If they gave us VC then their milking of retro consoles wouldn't be as effective.
As of now there is little to no appeal.
I told people to give it time. Let's hope in six months or less they do make it more appealing.
I hear you with the give it time.... But we waited a whole extra year for absolutely nothing. So I'm a bit impatient Nintendo is so far behind the other 2 in this department it's comical.
Nintendo definitely did more than emulate 20 NES games in a year's time...I sure hope so. They just love to drip feed content and it's time they stop doing that....haha. :)
I agree, but if they can improve it in the near future. That will be good.
They seem committed to do so. I think the Switch is perfect for a community return similar to miiverse. Offer me two free N64 games a month. Give me access to games a week early. Nintendo should really be in talks with Microsoft about what they can do to improve they seem somewhat comfortable as of late
Yeah, the X Box has such a good online service, that would be wise for Nintendo to do so.
Seems like a good exchange. Well help you with your online service you help us develop more quality first party titles. Both parties win. Won't happen, but it's nice to dream
