    I chose free games over paid online and am pretty okay with that. I think the service is a fair price though and would have gone that route had a backup loader not presented itself first. Have fun with Smash Bros., dudes!

    I don't know what saddens me more, the lack of a robust NES library from the get go, or the fact people have such low standards that they're convincing themselves that they're a-okay with how Nintendo is handling it.

    A sense of optimism in a world so negative is such a terrible thing for most of you.

    No plan to sign up. The price seems okay, but most of what's provided for it shouldn't cost extra anyway. They'd have to offer a lot more features before I'd consider taking the plunge.

    What has really ticked me off is their behavior toward places like emuparadise and channels on Youtube that deal with their products/games or hacks of them. I can understand wanting to protect their copyrights, but the way they've gone about it seems really over the top and with the Youtube issue, they are so clearly in the wrong and just the same old abusive, bullying company they were in the 80s. And, attacking places like emuparadise so they can charge "rental" fees for NES games most of us have already bought many times over, (including the physical carts), seems pretty absurd.

    I have gone out of my way to support Nintendo by buying 140 physical Switch game releases so far, but I've really slowed down on my purchases since the above behavior began. I'll be much more careful with whatever dollars I give to Nintendo going forward. Like some others have said, I have a love/hate feeling for them. Lately, it's leaning more hate than love.

    I understand there are a lot of fanboys who stick up for them no matter what they do, but I try to be fair-minded and I'm not going to support behavior I disagree with. If they continue what they've been doing, I'll simply close my wallet and continue enjoying the generations of games I already own.

    What does Google drive have to do with all that?
    Do you mean that if my console is hacked That I could just back it up myself and upload it to Google drive?
    Well I could but I won't hack my main switch and I would back up my games on a regular basis while cloud backup is automatic. So if my switch suddenly died on me I would probably lose a months worth of gameplay as I didn't back it up manually within the last month

    Yeah but at least your one month old save will be there "forever" and for free.

    while 20euros may not be too much for the most , i still have to agree with you , the service is not comparable to Sonys for instance.
    nintendo just loves to cash in.

    it should have stayed free.

    The problem is not the cost, the true thing is that i dont feel that is Good, there are a lot of missed things. Also Xbox let you to share your games with one Friend, and Booth Can play the same game al the same time... i feel that Nintendo isnt Thinking on the user just on the money

    People complaining about p2p as the main reason for no. Bet many of these people are paying for either xb line or PlayStation plus. Most xb and ps games are also p2p. Games with dedicated servers often require that you have purchased the season pass to use them. Other wise you are also using p2p. Gears of War 4 for example does. So did gears 3 once they added them. So complaining about the lack of dedicated servers is a joke.

    No. I will be ok with the price but there a lot of thing that i don't care. The NES games....don't care, i can basicly play all the NES game i want on my 3DS. Unfortunaly i want to play Smash online when it comes out, so i will be force to pay. I hope that fopr that moment the game he offer will be a bit better...or at least SNES game? Maybe? No?! Ok...

    Yes I did updated to FW6.0 asap regardless of everyone saying you should not, its no different and homebrew issues will get resolved. I use online so I got 12 months with 720 gold coins discount so it only came too just £10.70p I know most seem to slate Nintendo for this online pay but I think it's very good and if you use online gaming features like I do then why not and why should other company's like Microsoft & Sony charge for there online activity and not Nintendo and it's not as though your paying huge prices like they are! The cloud save is a brilliant idea as well I love it. The only point that did annoy me a little bit was I wish TX had just mentioned in the last update 1.9 to hold off updating to 6.0 for the time being, if they knew EmuNAND would be a thing in the very near future 2.0 update!

    i bought it. my god if this service is bad. shitty p2p PAID online full of lag and disconnections, the voice chat is garbage, the NES rent service is totally worthless, i could just use Lakka OS switch without probably getting banned, useless cloud saves for splatoon 2 players (i do not own splatoon 2) and terrible "special offers". 60 euros for 2 nes controllers that i have to pay 20 euros a month to use them??? what the fuck is even this service??

    It's not being a cheapskate, it has always been free and all they've done is taken a free feature away and made you pay for it. It's more about principle.
    I could not play Mario kart online for a year, turn on that Wii and go straight online, no typing in codes or signing up, no barriers just straight online and that's what Nintendo has always been about.
    Their online library is always petty and small compared to the other systems and nes/snes games mean nothing.
    PC gamers have to pay nothing to play online and that's what Nintendo should of stuck to.
    It's hard to see people justifying Nintendo taking away from them and making you pay for something that has always been free, must be anti consumer fanboys

    actually, you should consider us as lucky to not having paid for Nintendo online service so far
    Because as it has been said, servers cost money to run them
