Topic: How would you improve the NSO Online service?

I was thinking about Nintendo and the GB/GBC/GBA situation with NSO, and it dawned on me. Nintendo has the bare minimum right now in the base subscription with NES and SNES games. What if they've held off on adding the previous handhelds until after the 3DS and Wii U eShops close? It feels slightly cynical, but I could absolutely see it happening.

Just bring back Virtual Console period. And I am not talking about the VC like the Wii U, I am talking about the VC like the Wii.

@Tasuki Are you referring to the variety of first- and third-party titles/consoles?

For the cost I don't have any real issues with NSO, it's a bargain in my opinion. The release schedule doesn't bother me at all with the amount there is to play already. The addition of the N64 and Mario Kart courses was a huge plus for me personally. Even tho I own pretty much all the N64 titles being release I will still replay these on Switch. I don't pay for any other subscription services other than PlayStation online, so a couple of pounds a month for this much content is a no brainer.

@GameOtaku It costs me £35 a year for expansion pass.

It would cost me £10 for each N64 game, £8 for each SNES game and £5 for each NES game if they were to sell them individually.

Going back to buying them individually is just not worth it.

@Bass_X0
Would you buy all the games that would become available on the service? I doubt you would. Forcing us to subscribe to an online service just to play offline games is ridiculous. Sure you may get lots of benefits but if you don’t play online (or like me among many others no internet connection) it’s not a good deal to pay $50 for services you don’t use. I’d gladly pay to download vc style as that suits the way I play. Even better if they honor past vc purchases from before.

@GameOtaku Of course I play all the NSO games. Obviously some much more than others but I’ve played every NES game on the NSO for at least twenty minutes and every SNES, Genesis and N64 game on the NSO for at least ten minutes.

I’m mostly ok with the service. I sub to play online and own most of the nso games in other formats so Everything is gravy really. The dlc unlocks made the service for me. I’ll likely buy the dlc later but in the interim I can enjoy at no extra cost and less than my sub anyway. I would say do more dlc unlocks (especially of older games to drive a few more sales) and a game or two a month for the service instead of the drip feed. I’m sure most of that is due to licensing but if Nintendo pushed on the titles it owns outright then it would look like steady content.
