I may have missed it, so I apologize if this was already discussed and laid to rest; But did nintendo say the expansion will be the same type of service as the nes and snes apps where you can only rent/stream the available games as long as you have a membership? I guess what I'm asking is, did nintendo rule out the idea of purchasing games as part of the expansion pak? The whole "more pricing and details to follow in October" had me thinking. I may be a crazy man, but the option to purchase some of these n64 games would be phenomenal, especially banjo.

So, full disclosure here: I have never touched an N64 controller. However, looking at that layout, it seems like using any other controller will force you to use the right stick for the c buttons. That just seems like it would feel really unnatural, so I’m beginning to think buying the N64 controller might be worth it (I do plan on using the app a lot). But what do you guys think? Should I spend the $50 for the authentic experience? Is there a third party equivalent that you would recommend instead? Also, would it even be possible to get my hands on one, or do they usually sell out within 10 minutes like so many other Nintendo products?

For the best controls in N64 games I'd say the N64 Controller is worth it.

It's not just the four C-buttons, but also the Z-button that can feel awkward with standard controllers. And your standard controller will most definately not match up with the in-game controller icons and button prompts.

Some control options that are available in some of the games (for example Sin and Punishment) only make sense with a N64 Controller.

I’m glad that the N64 NSO has the potential to bring in some snowboarding games. There really isn’t much of anything to play. And since EA has abandoned ssx and Ubisoft is into doing multisport persistent online x-sports games the genre is dying as a whole imo. I’d rather replay 1080 or snowboard kids than the few games on Switch.

It came to mind regarding the whole 50Hz and 60Hz difference between the Direct footage. Given the NES and SNES apps for Europe and America are identical, maybe the N64 apps feature both the PAL and NTSC versions kind of like how Castlevania Advance Collection allows you to swap between the different versions of each game.

I think we’ll get info on the N64/Genesis NSO stuff in a couple of weeks, as the New Horizons Direct is next week, and I don’t think that Nintendo would want to have both of those running into each other, info, and hype wise, if that makes sense. (Unless they give info on it on Monday or Tuesday, and then the NH Direct on Friday, but we’ll see).

Anyways, there were a couple of things that I’ve been curious about ever since N64/Genesis NSO got announced.

1. First, do you guys think they’ll run the new NPLN infrastructure, or do you think it’ll still run the old NEX infrastructure? 🤔

  • I hope it’s the new infrastructure, and if that’s why it took so long for them to arrive on NSO, then I totally get it. (I also think that the pandemic pushed back their plans a bit as well). Also, when do you guys think that Nintendo (and third parties) will start using the NPLN infrastructure on a consistent basis?

2. Second, do we know if M2 is working on the Genesis NSO app, or if it’s someone else who’s working on it? I’m asking because if it’s M2, then that would explain why they stopped working on the SEGA AGES line, as they would have been working on the Genesis NSO app. 🤔

Turns out there is both versions, PAL 50Hz and NTSC 60Hz.

...and @Grumblevolcano does it again, with getting another prediction correct.

Seriously though, nice job with having another one of your predictions come true. I think it’s cool that you’ve had a decent amount of your predictions come true. For a while, I thought you were some sort of insider because of how often you’re predictions came true. I hope I’m not being weird by saying that.

Anyways, I know that it would make sense for Nintendo to include both options on the N64 NSO app, but with Nintendo being Nintendo, it’s hard to tell what they’ll do at times.

Also, I was wondering if you had any thoughts on my post above that I made a couple of days ago? 🤔

$50 USD for a year of NSO + Expansion Pack.

That's definitely higher then I expected. I guess the justification is because it includes the Animal Crossing expansion... but then, what if you don't play Animal Crossing?

Maybe Expansion Pack will include more DLC for other titles? Or even Switch games, a la Game Pass?

@DarthNocturnal maybe something like PS plus where you get a game or two every month?

also yea i didn't expect that price tag either.

I am a piece of bread, and I love playing 3D World.
The Switch is one of the best consoles ever.

For USA it's prices for individual is 2,5 times (49,99$) then normal yearly price and for family 2,29 times (79,99$) then normal yearly price while for Europe both only 2 times only (39,99€ and 69,99€) then normal yearly prices. And now I'm happy that I live in Europe for this.

More than I expected but it includes more than I expected. To be completely blunt, two of the four people on my Family Plan would defintiely be going for the Animal Crossing DLC. I'm not that into it myself but in a sense it's already paid for itself right there. So for me it's a reasonable value (even if not for me directly) at least for this year. And presumably this isn't the last thing included in it

Haven't seen Australian prices yet but. I'm kinda assuming it's going up to $130AU so basically up $85AU/year. Which more or less covers the cost of the DLC for those two (I'm assuming the DLC will be ~$40AU). Then I get to enjoy the N64 titles. Of course, very likely could be less than $130AU/year for the family plan

Too much. Make it like ps plus and Xbox live gold then we're talking.

Destiny, justice and retribrution will be mine.

That's just what I needed, more fuel for online discourde.

Hm. Well the price for the family pack here in Mexico will double up if we add the expansion. It’s not as bad as it could’ve been, but then again, it was already more expensive compared to US dollars.

I really hope it will include future DLC as well, not just the animal crossing one.

Probably most people expected prices increase be at most 1,5 times, but this was in between 2 to 2,5 times depending on where you live. :/

Looks like it's only 2X in Australia. A bit more palatable

I think Nintendo is deliberately overshooting the price to test how much money they can pull out of its customers with as little content as possible. My hope is that they are forced to steadily add content to keep people inside the Expansion Pass.

For me personally it's too little value for the price. But let's see what they'll add in the coming months.

If you factor in the DLC, it's only an additional $20 for the family plan, which is about what I expected. After the first year, though, it's either $45 or you're paying $25 per year for the DLC rather than once. So hopefully by then they will have added more stuff to make it worthwhile, but at least the first year seems good (if you want the DLC, which we do).

Here’s some math: the original NSO is $20US for a single user for a year, the expansion pass is $50US a year. So $30 more. People wanted it to be $10 BEFORE it was announced AC would be included, which costs $25. So, if we be realistic and say you most likely wouldn’t play the AC DLC for more than a year, if you only bought the Expansion Pack for one year, the AC adds $20 to the price, saving you $5 assuming you use the DLC for the whole year, which is unlikely. So yeah, it’s a bit of a ripoff, especially if you don’t have ACNH to begin with.

I honestly hate this pricing SO MUCH, because I don’t plan on buying the Expansion Pass until Majora’s Mask is added, whenever that would be. But if I buy the AC DLC before then, I would be paying $30 for a few N64 games, only for a year. I would be REBUYING the DLC even though I already have it, WHICH IS SOO STUPID. They should have an in between tier that just has N64 and Genesis games, because this sucks.

To be fair, if you have a family pass, and split the price between 8 people who all get the content (just under $4 each), it’s still an amazing deal.

Have they said how much it will cost for a single month, or can you only buy it for a year? All the prices I’ve seen online have been for a year.

Heigh Ho Heigh Ho. It’s off to work (from home) I go.

@Xyphon22 It's already confirmed the only way to permanently get the DLC is to buy it outright. Via the subscription you lose access when your subscription elapses.
