https://bgr.com/2018/07/26/nintendo-switch-online-membership-subscription-preorder/ (Honestly the way they're listing off the features sounds like they were paid to say this, but I couldn't find any evidence of that, so eh) (Also I'm not sure if this is the right place for this topic, but I couldn't find any other place for it) I'm not sure if this is just me, but I don't understand why people are so excited about this? Paying for something that came initially for free (and is still free for the previous generation of consoles, for now) and getting very little in the form of bonuses (they re-release the same NES games every console generation, and cloud backup should be default) doesn't sound like something anyone would want? And I know this is anecdotal, but I haven't seen much in the way of backlash about this whole thing. How is paying for something that used to come by default anything worth getting excited over? If Nintendo said the money was going into making the service better, then I would understand, but that isn't the case, so I still don't get it. Not to mention, while it isn't likely to be the case forever, you can still play Mario Kart 8 online on the Wii U; Mario Kart 8 being one of the games that you can't play online without a subscription. So is anyone here excited for this, despite it being, to me, being forced to pay if you want to keep playing? If so, why?
