In terms of the legacy content, we’ve said that our focus right now is for NES content. And that’s what we’ll continue to push on."


How can Nintendo be so blind to the fact that we want VC games other than NES content? C'mon.
Minimal features for the online service, no real voice chat or party options... no deals on games for subscribers... no dedicated servers for games.
They can do a lot better.

I like NES games as much as the next guy, but Nintendo really needs to add compatibility with SNES and N64 games if they want this service to be a suitable replacement for Virtual Console.
Beep boop son, beep boop.

They just want to be different for the sake of it.
That's just dumb.

What a strange thing for him to say when they already took the 1st step towards mirroring the competition with paid online.
I'd expect similar (read: not "same" since it's cheaper) benefits.

Yup.
For 33% of the cost of other services we should be ENTITLED to everything other services have and more

If you want to compare value to the dollar... take a look at what the competitors offer for $60 (with multiple sales a year to get subscriptions for $40).
Amazing sales on games
Free games every month that aren't decades old. (not knocking NES but Nintendo has the best legacy content, they have the ability be giving customers more)
Excellent party options
Voice chat across games, the whole party can even be in different games.
So much to do with Xbox Gold and PS+ that you don't even question its worth.

With NSO, how many people can sit there and say wow, this is exactly what I wanted?
I love Nintendo as much as the next guy, I want to give them my money.
It is mind boggling with how obvious it is consumers want for things that Nintendo just won't do.
Time to play catch up Nintendo. I think your supporters deserve more.

This.

The Switch is "mirroring the competition" far too much.
Or whatever.

This. Stop using the lesser price to justify Nintendo's incompetence when it comes to creating a solid online Infrastructure.
