    If accurate I think that is something most can live with and even embrace if it improves the quality.

    Well, it's cheap as fuck.
    They well could have made it somewhat more expensive and give permanent free games every month.
    I suppose no one should complain with this price anyway.

    2$ a month is nothing to 10$ a month for ps+ and 5$ a month for XBL gold, it's clear nintendad knows what they're doing here.

    Ayyy lmao
    How cheap even is it? They'll probably overcharge in Mexico, so it'll be "expensive"

    Well, I don't know how IP restricted it may be.
    But you could perhaps register it somewhere else and use a preloaded credit card.

    It's gonna be like 600 pesos knowing Game Planet and gamerstm
    What I do want to know though is how much it'll be in the console with a credit card

    What would really be awesome is if $17.50 was for Individual and $26.50 was Family, even if it is per device.

    get ready for people getting real angry they'll have to pay all of that at once without the option to pay month by month

    as for myself... as long as it can be paid in eshop cash, i'm fine with it

    They will probably make it an even $25 USD
    And if they do that for a full year. Then im on board with that, the break down is $2.08 a month.
    That would be the cheapest online out of the other systems. And it wouldnt be a bad price to pay for renting a nes/snes game amonth lol.
    Now if only they have reduce prices on the VC games.

    If the online games come then ill 100& pay for this.

    I really hope thats accurate. One of the main reasons why I don't want a switch is because of online subs....Having to pay to play Splatoon or MH5 *crosses fingers* would have sucked. but $2/month is nothing.

    I'd be shocked if the Switch doesn't receive a new Monster Hunter title.

    Yeah, for people that like to voice chat with strangers that sucks. For me, its a god-send. I'm aware you can silence people you don't know on other systems, but that's often a hassle. I think I stopped using voice chat with strangers over 5 years ago, when most of them settled into insulting your mother, and then you have the little kids screaming in your ear. It'd be nice to have the option for those that want it, but voice chat with strangers hasn't been for me for a long time.

    I don't care how cheap it is and it isn't guarantee to stay that price. It should be free.
