Nintendo has said that the online services "will provide consumers with a wealth of online features that allow them to enjoy Nintendo Switch all the time", but whether it's PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live Gold in a meaningful comparable Way is similar, remains to be seen.
As you may remember, Switch's paid online membership program was originally scheduled to come out in late 2017, but was postponed because it needed more time. And hopefully, Nintendo has taken the time to make it as robust or as appealing as possible.
Nintendo previously said that membership fees are $ 4 for 1 month, $ 8 for 3 months, or $ 20 for one year. This would make the offer significantly cheaper by $ 40 than what Sony and Microsoft offer with their consoles.
Given that September is not so far off, this next information dump is just that, a dump and not just a small overflow. More specifically, I want Nintendo to finally reveal what exactly will be on offer and what not. Hopefully it is more than less, but considering its low price, I'm not sure what to expect.
If there are basic online games, a kind of cloud-based storage / storage system, and an offer of free games every month, I'll be happy.
In other current and related news, the Nintendo Switch continues to sell like hotcakes on the national hot-chocolate days at the International Warming Cake Fair: surpassing 17 million units in just one year. And it's not surprising that the killer series of first-party games performs very well.
