I don't understand. You'll complain if you have to pay 5-10 dollars more per year for access to dozens of SNES games (most likely), because you'd rather pay 10-15 bucks a pop PER game if they just put them on the eShop?

I mean...what the heck, people. We don't know pricing, obviously, but I'd bet a golden retriever puppy it won't be over 10 dollars more per year, and I'd also be willing to bet we'd get access to AT LEAST half a dozen SNES games. I don't know.

I guess the flip side is people just expect this stuff for free or as part of the 20 dollar membership because, you know, people don't value the work of others and they think time renders all things worthless.

"We dont want games for x price per title anymore. Make it an all encompassing fee"

"Ok"

"We dont want that make it individual!"

All they gotta do to make it not an embarrassment is actually put effort into some basic online things But it's Nintendo, so... Hah.

We can’t forget the golden nugget of “They should make the plan have tier pricing, then charge more than the base to get SNES games”

Whatever, mine and a friend’s re-ups in September. Since I bought hers last year, I’m putting us both on a family plan anyway with our other friend. I play online games, I buy a sub. First world problem solved.

I'm already paid through two more years of NSO.

A separation of NSO tiers by price would suck.

@link3710 I'd imagine you will be able to upgrade your current membership like how on XB1 you can upgrade from Xbox Live Gold to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (Gold + Game Pass XB1 + Game Pass PC) though of course Nintendo wouldn't be as generous as upgrade for $1.

If I were buying an individual subscription, a SNES tier wouldn't interest me. I can play all the SNES games I want on my 3DS/SNES mini - I really don't need SNES games with that annoying forced border on my Switch.

That said, I buy a family plan and that would likely soften the blow so I'll probably end up with it anyway.

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.

Ideally how about this, virtual console on switch but nso nes still works as it should but gives subbers 5 games from vc free that they have access to at any time even after the sub is over. Everyone wins, non subbers can buy games subbers play all free and keep 5 (in addition they could buy normally).

@NintendoByNature I think what this means is that the price of a yearly subscription is about to take a massive hike because they're going to charge you for the online, NES games AND SNES games in addition to those

@BlueBlur101 a massive hike would hopefully warrant massive results and improvements. But, I guess we'll find out in a few weeks time I'd assume.

Tiers is a good idea tho I would want to upgrade my tier. I’d like to keep my basic cheap online. I have a Snes mini. Nes mini Wii shop virtual console games. 3ds virtual console games and Wii u virtual console games and nes and Snes cartridges. Would be great for the people who haven’t experienced Snes games

@IceClimbers I'm so happy they're going back to the older style of game design. Even happier they specifically mention dungeons! I really liked the dungeons and towns in the original game.

Current Games:

Astral Chain (Switch)

DOOM 3: BFG Edition (PC)

Paper Mario: The Origami King (Switch)

Really, Nintendo? You'll rise the price of NSO for just adding SNES games? Why do it for SNES of all consoles? The idea of increasing the yearly subscription should only be considered if your adding anything from the N64 era or higher.

If Nintendo is seriously considering this, then I guess I'll continue not supporting their online service until they make actual good and useful improvements. Or better yet, give us a choice to buy the games individually like we used to the Wii and Wii U.

I mean, Sony took stuff AWAY and THEN increased the price. This is a logical move.

@BlueBlur101
Maybe 2 or 3 then, as long as the games equal around $20.

I know I sound like a broke record but I'd love to have unhindered access to a self curated classic game collection legally available to everyone.

I, like everyone else, would love to have all the games I want available to me conveniently and for free. But of course that's unrealistic.

Nintendo is very diligent about maintaining the value of their IP. They have always resisted collections and re-releases, except under very specific and curated circumstances. Compare this to Sega, which has re-released their older library so often and at such incredible discounts that the value of, say, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is virtually negligible. Nintendo is still milking Super Mario Brothers after all this time. It's not good for us, the consumer, but it's very good for Nintendo, the company. Whether the value they maintain is an illusion or not, is another question.

Mr. Yamauchi would fully endorse this model. Wherever he is (probably hell), he's loving this era of Nintendo.
