@Mrtoad That's pretty good. About 1 in 4 Switch owners.

@Mrtoad
If you consider the amount of switch units sold however it's not that impressive. That's roughly the population of New York, so while it is a "large" number it certainly shows how small it actually is.

@GameOtaku The article does not make a distinction between normal and family accounts and I can say that I at least know a couple of couples who have their own stichtes, but use a family account, so the actual numbers of users online might be quite different.

Just as a comparison, ps plus have about 40% attach rate. Which is mediocre compared to PC which have roughly a 100% attach rate.

If we check the slides, they have the caveat "Note: Includes accounts within Family Memberships", so one family account is accounted as multiple subscriptions.

Awful experience overall. Tried the trial, there's no way this is even worth a coffee per month. Neither the NES offering nor the online functionality is worth it. I tried Smash online with more than 2 players and it just breaks apart. What are we even paying for?

I feel you, buddy.

Dude, you do realize he may be trolling, right?

Oh snap!! I'd been hoping for Kirby. What a nice early Valentine's gift

The selection of games has been pretty pathetic in my perspective. I was OK with the initial offering but now they throw special editions of the same games on there for filler. For February they announced Super Mario Bros 2 Mario madness and Kirby's Adventures. These truly suck for additions. Where is Contra, Dragon Warrior or any of the other better games?

There are so many other more worthwhile games like Mega Man, Castlevania, and Spy Hunter. Also the interface is getting so cluttered. They need to rework it or the older games are going to get so small you can't read them.

@Zidentia You know Ninty can get the license to every good game. That’s something you just have to live with.

The service hasn’t even been out for half a year, yet y’all are still quick to say that it is a failure. Hmmm 🤔🧐

@subpopz I’m just guessing, of course, but I’d imagine it’s harder to get distributions on something without having to eventually eat the cost. Whatever Nintendo would need to pay out wouldn’t be offset by an increase in revenue directly since the sub price is still the same. I’m sure there’s some sort of upfront cost and long term sub revenue statistical wizardry that has to be glanced at.
I’m happy that Kirby’s Adventure is added, quality game.

Contra wasn't even on Wii VC. We may get it's sequel, but not the original.

If a certain someone actually is coming to Smash, we could get Dragon Warrior games as a tie-in.

@DarthNocturnal If so, hopefully they include III and IV. The NES versions of I and II are pretty rough despite their importance to the genre.

Where did I say it was a failure? I pay for a service and I can critique its shortcomings. Read closer next time and save us both from mindless conversations

@Zidentia I included the line spacing to show different ideas. The first paragraph was directed at you, while the second paragraph was my observation of this thread in general. You have every right to critique what you want.

This month will probably be the one I use the NES app most. Been wanting to play retro Kirby for a while.

@Zidentia While I don't disagree there's many fantastic third party games, therein lies the problems: they are third party. All the games you listed belong to Capcom, Konami, Sunsoft and Square Enix. Who knows if there's licensing issues or what's going on there. Capcom may not want Mega Man on the service for fear it will interfere with sales of Legacy Collection, for example.
Nintendo just can't drop games they do not own onto the service without permission of the property owner.

I know there are licensing issues on some titles but many of the first party titles are sub standard and always were even when NES was new. I am not saying there are a lack of good titles but the offerings so far are weak, for me, at least.

You quoted me so the argument appears to be in my direction. If you like Kirby then this is your month. I just feel what they have given us so far is not that appealing.
