    It's because of all those American youtubers that blew Nintendo up because they saved the video game crash in the usa. Most reviewers and so forth are American so because of their nostalgia we have to deal with all of this bullshit and crap and because of them everybody gives them a free pass because god you dare say something different than those youtubers, you'll get struck down by an angry army of followers

    This, THIS right here. You're 100% right. You get and keep customers by having a friendly and easy experience, that encourages people to return to your platform. Paywalling a damned controller and archaic online offerings that feel right out of the early 2000's is NOT the way to do that. Piracy takes a bit out of revenue, yes, but they'd more than make up for it with new customers if these offerings were anything but the meager and draconian middle finger informed shoppers can see it all as.

    Wow im so glad Wii U was my last nintendo console im ever buying new. Maybe once switch is long gone I will get one but not anything new to support this crap. Ill wait till they are used and on ebay cheap when this online bullshit is all gone. Im surprised they didn't make it so you couldn't play any games without having there service which would make the console worthless once there online service is gone.

    The switch itself isn‘t bad at all. I was very sceptic first but it‘s a really fun console with some great games so far.

    Same reason they put out Other M and Skyward Sword. Because they knew dumb turds would buy anything with a given brand with indiscriminate force. And defend it like a good little fanboy. Just like that one steam group that was protesting the horrible state of the PC port of MW2 and then a screencap not two hours after launch showed the majority of its members all playing - you guessed it - Modern Warfare 2.

    They already proved they can't handle criticism themselves, considering that they basically shut down the review system rather than deal with all the one-star reviews for their crap. Or how even a game that was around since launch digitally is STILL selling at launch MSRP on their eShop.

    This kind of practice is pretty much why I make a point of avoiding digital purchases for consoles... and why hopefully the EU will finally decide enough is enough, and force the console makers to allow third party storefronts to exist and serve their users. Then, and only then, will we see some real competition on quality and price, on the digital side of things.

    They're just like that spoiled turd who hogs all the toys in preschool not because he or she wants to, but just for the sake of doing it out of nothing but spite. This makes me even more glad to have downloaded several GB of ROM sets.

    So as soon as the subscription runs out, your backed up saves in the cloud get deleted? Very stupid in my eyes, it's not hard to give the user the chance to download their saves if their subscription runs out.

    The NES selection is fucking terrible and slowly dripping more is awful.
    They've killed piracy sites
    They've killed Virtual Console
    The least they could do is offer a large selection of NES, SNES, GB(C) and GBA games. They have emulators that run all of those perfectly and it's apparent that they don't want us buying them or pirating them in any other way.

    Why do they think NES games are some exciting selling point in the year 2018? Especially after they just relased the NES and SNES Classics.

    Side note, why is it always NES games? I understand that they are trying to appeal to nostalgia, but stop it. It's always the same games and always the same features. Offer more games already!

    If there's one thing Nintendo always fails with, it's online crap :v
    This has to be the worst online service there is (I dunno, I live under an effing rock)
    And besides, how many online games there are for the switch? Bet you can count them on one hand.

    Bah, imo, the switch is just a dumping ground of ports of old games.

    Edit: Oh yes, and fuck you again Nintendo for your shit service of killing roms site, thank you for making it much harder to
    find games that are nowadays almost impossible to find.
    You'll never get a single cent from me anymore Ninty. I hope you go under as soon as possible.
    Imo, the best Nintendo could happen to them is that they end up as Sega: a third party game developer.
    At least then they would mostly focus on making games, I hope.

    Is anybody really that surprised? Nintendo of Japan is just a bunch of stubborn, clueless old men who are so far detached from reality. The only thing they understand is money, so don't pay for this shit.

    All this paying for online is crazy. I remember back then when Xbox launched it, I thought it was going to be a temporal shit. But damn, people payed for it and they are happy as of today!!. It was only a matter of time before N did the same thing. But since the beginning of paying online, I think that's fucked up. You buy a console, you pay your internet, and then, you need to pay to play online? Crazy shit still to this day.

    So if your subscription expires they'll delete your saves.

    I bet if you don't check in once every 7 days "to verify your account" they will delete your NES games too.

    I'm conflicted now. Will it be worth it for the upcoming Gen 8 Pokémon game for, you know, trading and battling? What about legit users who use homebrew for other things? My Switch is still sitting at 3.0.0., so I don't know what to do. If someone decides to make an alternate online server, I might be interested.
