    This was leaked a week or so ago and there are plenty of people using it. You may not be but others are!

    I've become a Nintendo hater since the switch came out.
    Nintendo simply doesn't charge for online, you just turn the system on and its ready to play whatever game you bought online with no fees.
    Dunno about you but I'd never trust Nintendo with my bank details

    Hmmmm, after 3 console generations of toying with an internet connection, Nintendo decides that this "internet" isnt going away anytime soon. Not that many games need an internet connection, but hey here it is again. Now you can all play a slightly less laggy version of Brawl.

    I think they have something for that. I mean it would be stupid to not to.
    But were talking about Nintendo.

    Guys, whats the problem with a linked account? It's absolutely fine to do so.
    If you're legit, you don't have to bother, if not, it's your fault.

    A linked account DOESN'T mean that you aren't able to own multiple consoles with these accounts.

    Its impossible that in case of hardware failure you cant redownload your games to another console.

    You don't need a nintendo account do download updates, that's a basic service.

    This linking seems related to the cloud saves (those saves are only usable with a specific user profile) and possibly to avoid the misuse of subscription, where you would have a portable subscription.
