What the hell Nintendo? You are creating an online service where not only are your game saves not maintained, should there be any to the lapse in payment, but if you don’t connect to the Internet every seven days, then you lose access to your network-provided (NES) games. Why???
Given how small save data actually is, wouldn’t it behoove Nintendo to maintain the data somewhere for a duration of time? It would certainly make their customers happier.
Now let’s talk about the network games stores on the Switch. Why should these applications be required to check for an active subscription each week when the shortest duration of subscription is a month? What about military members who are deployed? What about people with limited Internet access?
Honestly, I love Nintendo but decisions like these really make me wonder how long their customers will tolerate this type of thing before the company is essentially forced into following Sega into the software-only market.
