Why would Nintendo allow that Trojan horse on their network?

Since Xbox app is coming, they might as well. You know it's gonna be better than anything Nintendo can offer anyway.

Besides, they don't need to actually call it Xbox live. They can just license the tech from Microsoft.

"You know it's gonna be better than anything Nintendo can offer anyway."

Nintendo is doing better than Xbox right now even with their underpowered hardware and with their network services. They don't need Xbox but on the other hand, Xbox needs Nintendo, Android and iPhone to survive.

Trash online service gets defended because it’s cheap

People should always demand better from Nintendo’s online efforts

I can't imagine having so much brand loyalty that I defend every single decision a company makes when someone criticizes them. I mean how can anyone defend having to pay online and lack of voice chat or text message, if Sony or Microsoft released a console without voice chat or any other basics they won't get free pass like Nintendo and everyone will criticizes them.

everyone should always demand better, regardless if it's Nintendo, Sony or MS. We deserve better. Whether it's cross-play on the PS4, Better 1st party titles on the Xbox or a more competent online service with Nintendo, nobody is immune from criticism. Companies can always do better, no product is perfect.

The only thing I do question is when is it enough for Nintendo? Are we expecting full parity here at 1/2 the price? Because that's a little hypocritical. Voice chat, party systems, dedicated servers, direct messaging, all things that need to be addressed, 100%.

More features and more games that take advantage of online play. The other thing is NES games as an incentive doesn't really cut it. At the very least add N64 & Gamecube.
