Source: Nintendo Everything Nintendo has clearly gotten much better with Kimishima but the mere fact that the voice-chat will have to be done through a smartphone app and only between friends is a huge deal-breaker. I remember the old days of voice-chatting on the 360 with strangers and I really liked the conversations we had, there weren't really that many of the stereotypical kids screaming as many like to point out (the alternative to this, was some morons putting their background music on the mic lol). So, let's wrap it up: - One rental game per month - Voice-chat with friends-only through a smartphone app - Yearly cost of $18-27 Some may try to defend it as it's "very cheap" but it really offers nothing of value so screw it. When Nintendo starts their paid service I won't be paying for it. Single player/offline games then.
