    I can't wait to pay $20 for Peer 2 Peer online! Thanks Nintendo!

    Because unlike you not all of us are corporate slaves, we shouldn't have to pay a dime to play on P2P servers

    Sow why can't they release it when it has actual features and not just rush it out?

    Here's the thing, Online Nintendo games don't have servers, it's all P2P, and you're gonna be paying for that with no other features to offer. Never seen so many corporate slaves in a single forum before

    But still.. why pay for something you already own? Nintendo isn't steam! Valve isn't charging me $20 a year for CS1.6 online servers that other people host to this very day. Nintendo is charging you for p2p servers that they themselves don't even maintain!

    Secondly, everyone seems to be saying "I'll pay for online services if it means no cheaters".. Ahahaha if you think that will even help remotely, you're dead wrong. The switch is a hacked console. It's only a matter of time until someone figures out a way.

    Subscription models are garbage.. Good for business, bad for consumers but everyone seems to be into it. Do you really want a netflix model for gaming? Do you really want to subscribe to stream or watch game streaming? Pfft. This is literally the patreon of jailbreaking. Back in Pokemon blue and red days, I didn't need online subscriptions. For CS1.6 and Go, I don't have to subscribe.. For any game on PC, it's free (with the exception of WOW and Runescape and the like).

    Why are these consoles any different lol and why are people defending this shit.. This new generation of gamers don't even game because they like gaming.. they game because they like getting "likes" on their little twitch streams and youtube channels and making money off of some of you guys.. and the girls don't even game with a t-shirt on for more views (not that I'm complaining about free-tits.. but still).

    Pay your rent, not subscriptions. lol.

    I'll pass on the subscription. Thanks.

    I'll be buying the service only because of Splatoon 2, Smash, and Pokémon when the next main games come out.

    After the PR bullshit they pulled with being overly protective of their IP (like, out of the blue, no reason why they didn't do so earlier), and given the fact we'll be starting out with 20 shoddy-ass NES games, not paying a cent.

    let's just keep it simple and all shut dam mouths. Until the service actually launches and is actually usuable by the public so we can actually se what the service will be like none of us have any means of knowing for sure what the service will be like. So unless any of your a devs that know everything stop actinging like you know everything and bitching about it nonstop.

    Nintendo already revealed everything there is to the online service. We know it's shit. Stop being such a fanboy and get some standards

    I'm not being a fanboy, I am simply withholding judgement till I actually have my hands on said service to make a proper judgement. On a side note, I would like to bring up the funny thing of how history is repeating itself here with the launch of the ps4 and the anouncment of psplus being required seeing massive backlash too.

    This isn't about the PS4 this is about Nintendo, just because the other 2 do something morally wrong it doesn't make Nintendo justified to do the same especially when what they provide for paid online is minuscule. You can make a proper judgement before you buy just by viewing what the service has to offer. Hint hint- it doesn't offer jack shit

    Don't shoot the messenger as i could careless about Online play, always have preferred Local. Just stating news that was said. Also that's how the industry is now, release now & let the people Q&A/Beta test it then fix or add to it later, just like the PS4 was released with bare-bones at release for Online features that the PS3 had.

    And yet there you are, with an avatar from Pokemon. Nothing says "I'm standing up to the corporate machine" like associating yourself with a multi-billion dollar media franchise.

    I wasn't comparing the service I was simply comparing the fact that history is repeating itself. Also, if you haven't noticed, Nintendo has slowly and silently changed there minds on many things about the service over time as we get closer to the launch of the service. Like I said, until the service is in my hands and the details are therefore concrete, I don't feel like giving my definitive opinion.

    well they hinted free games would get free online on a post somewhere, i mean you dont need ps plus to play them why would nintendo force you to need a subscription? they handle no servers for the game, epic games and such are the ones that host them and they even say the game is free so what is nintendo exactly loosing?

    Well, it wouldn't be the first time Nintendo has pulled off the dumbest shit ever, and saying that it will be that way with free games not needing the subscription cause they devs handle the server is a bit of a falacie as xbox makes you pay and all 3 services only manage 1st party game servers. None of the money from psn, xbg, or nno send any money to other devs for there servers.
