    its up to the developers of each game, some games have dedicated servers while other use p2p, most ps4 games and such nowadays have dedicated servers the famous ones atleast like cod and such, but nintendo its all p2p, not a single nintendo online game has dedicated servers, that is why mario maker 2 online sucks ass and its such a simple game to lag that much is just sad.

    You could literally just DIY yourself a real snes controller to be wireless with 8bitdo's mod. It'll only cost a fraction of the price...

    I still see no reason to buy Nintendo online. I don't give a fuck about SNES or NES games, lol. My friend has it, and the online goes to shit quite often in games like Smash and Mario Maker.

    I'm guessing that there'll be around 10-15 SNES games at "launch", then 2 SNES + 1 NES game each month after that.

    Of course they did. And you'll have no problem finding a source to back this claim up, I presume?

    I'd just get the 8bitdo ones. They're actually really nice, I have 2 of them.

    A lot of circlejerking over the use of emulators/ROMs going on here, but to state the obvious: people with hacked Switches aren't the target audience of free content that comes with an online subscription. Just like people who pirate all their games aren't the target audience for Sony's monthly PS+ giveaways.

    Anyway...I'll stick with my 8bitdo controller, but I'm happy to finally see some indication that SNES VC is on the way. There are actually quite a few games with staying power in the SNES library, hopefully some of them are included at launch.

    I have question about this patent if there is sth more in patent document, or it is only shape. I think patenting shape is similar to what Apple tried to do when they paten fight the Samsung - patenting shape of rectangle. If this is same kind of crap 8bitDo probably will be fore to use sth else.

    8bitdo SN30Pro user here. Mine has greater compatibility and won't be locked to the VC app. Also works with anything that uses bluetooth.

    I think I paired it to my ipod once. An ipod nano.

    Grabbed the SF30Pro myself because I like the Super Famicom button colour better. They're great. They may not have HD rumble or anything, but if you're playing a game with a pro controller I doubt you care much about that anyway. They're pretty sturdy feeling, every other third party pro controller I've used hasn't been very sturdy feeling IMO (though I haven't used Hori ones yet).

    They 8bitdo ones work really well for Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate.

    That's great, but would you care to explain what message you were actually trying to convey?
