Nintendo Switch Online Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:

  • Willowrpe Richard Elkin (@Willowrpe) reported

    One thing I would like to see in the videogames industry is that if you are PS, Xbox, Nintendo or PC. We need to come together to say to the companies no more releasing broken games on launch, I don't expect games to be perfect but seems so many unfinished stuff at launch

  • theburntwaffle1 Adam (@theburntwaffle1) reported

    I don't really like Nintendo but they manage to release AAA games with minimum issues at launch. That's basically unheard of with AAA launches these days.

  • IA__Mobile IA (Blue Checkmark) (@IA__Mobile) reported

    Only handheld devices should have OLED. Phones, tablets, Nintendo Switch, other small screen gaming devices. Once you get to TV and PC territory, there becomes a problem.

  • PS_Tweets Auntie Llama (@PS_Tweets) reported

    @VixiVulpixel AAA usually does imply ballooning budget in excess, Nintendo usually keeps budget moderately scaled back compared to other blockbuster titles, i think the issue is that million seller nintendo games are "flagship" titles, but not necessarily AAA.

  • JBoMacca Macca (@JBoMacca) reported

    I'm still pissed about the XC3 collector's editions Nintendo just handled that horribly and never did anything to fix it

  • SylviaRuriri ☁ ˗ˏˋ Sylviarill ˎˊ˗ ☁ (@SylviaRuriri) reported

    @HeadCannon1776 @loftipixels Plus, Nintendo is on a much bigger magnitude. Trust me that if they truly want to ruin someone for good they'd have no problems at all suing someone for a mod and having them ruined.

  • SpartanSargex1 Sarge Seizes (@SpartanSargex1) reported

    @thicc_stick_boi Nvidia doesn't sell games they sell a service just like the other cloud services. We don't know the nintendo deal it most likely had the 30% cut for nintendo as it's standard

  • NeikoPog Neiko (@NeikoPog) reported

    if Nintendo released virtual console for phones, made it a subscription service and it had a couple of the GB and GBA pokemon games, some mario games and a Zelda game they'd make a killing

  • thicc_stick_boi Tanga (@thicc_stick_boi) reported

    My best guess as to why Nvidia and Nintendo and multiple other companies said yes to Microsoft is for the sake of Activision games actually existing on a streaming service. Even if they have to pay to get it on their service it still drives subscribers up like crazy.

  • DrewArco Arco (@DrewArco) reported

    @Falco_X @charlieINTEL Sony was not the problem to block the deal anyway, and having cod and AKB on the service will drive costumers anyway to the platform, and that doesn't mean the cloud deals are the same for the platform holders I doubt Nintendo would sign such a thing lol

  • SamuelLucciano Lucciano S. Bartolini S. (@SamuelLucciano) reported

    @Retro_buoy @soldjouner @NotHaru47 This is still a market, if there is enough demand, they should make it if they see a profit and I think the minis showed said demand. The problem is that Nintendo is slow in taking action.

  • Retro_buoy Cubone95 (@Retro_buoy) reported

    @SamuelLucciano @soldjouner @NotHaru47 Besides, there's one problem with that aspect. Nintendo is a Japanese company and their work ethics are very different. What I'm saying is that I somehow doubt they're a fan of taking risks knowing how these companies work. They prefer to play it safe more than anything

  • ShadowFoxArche Shadow Fox Infinite (@ShadowFoxArche) reported

    @NGPunisher Nintendo, like Sony/MS, all had the same manufacturing shortage issues due to COVID supply chain. So yes, actually.

  • No1Rambler Rambling Entertained (@No1Rambler) reported

    @thicc_stick_boi @Delta1169 Probably another type of contract. Or keeping it to Nintendo’s own subscription service only.

  • GreatSaiywoman Gamewizord (@GreatSaiywoman) reported

    @ItzSly69 @nick71223 @SonicSaviorr 2) On games they don't even sell or even have on a service like game pass to play like Nintendo and their games we have no plans to make Legacy content available in any other way yet we're going to DMCA people on things we aren't even making any money on it's asinine.

  • FreeGlass FreeGlass Art | フリーグラスの絵 (@FreeGlass) reported

    daily reminder that nintendo should fix the aiming, make the cockpit view optional, and re-do the Copterwing sections and re-release Star Fox Zero for Switch.

  • squidfgc Squid 💚💚 🔜 hell (@squidfgc) reported

    @lildevilhorns absolutely pathetic that nintendo can't even figure out how to comp in their one slightly comp game. It would be such a non-issue for any other dev which is the sadest part.

  • LinkH00D Linkhood (@LinkH00D) reported

    @eric_8642 @mrpyo1 Also game development was only 3 yrs, compared to the standard right now which is about 5ish yrs.(Except Nintendo sometimes, they get there games out pretty quick) Or your have all those performance issues like this, 3 yrs seems to short. But at the same time I 3 yrs dev time…

  • tinaarenee Kristina ✨ (@tinaarenee) reported from Borough of Latrobe, Pennsylvania

    Problem is my sister uses DLC I purchased on my Nintendo account, so she wouldn’t be able to use the DLC on the secondary console anymore.

  • rambo031377 rambo31377 (@rambo031377) reported

    @myvegeta777 @MelonieMac I had a few issues of Nintendo Power magazine. The last issue I had came out around the time when Mortal Kombat 4 was ported to the N64 and PlayStation.

  • menmybuddynikki d.va nerf this ow2 fan (@menmybuddynikki) reported

    @NintendoAmerica I'm having problems with my Nintendo switch playing Pokemon Stadium on stream and it keeps freezing and it won't let me play want to play with someone can you please give me a advince with to do

  • pregoparafuso Gustavo (@pregoparafuso) reported

    @ansel_G_ @NintendoAmerica Still, if I could change it to hard by the time I realized it was too easy (around chapter 8~9, far enough to not want to start the whole game again) I would had way more fun. Besides, if someone wants to overlevel their units then raise the difficulty, what's the problem?

  • mortisfox 📼📺 VHS STATIC 📺📼 (@mortisfox) reported

    hey does anyone know how to fix a switch lite thats stuck on the nintendo startup screen? mines been stuck on that for months and ive tried holding the power down to reset but it doesnt change it ;-; it just makes a weird popping noise and turns to black and repeats the issue

  • OneFeinCat OneFeinCat (@OneFeinCat) reported

    @Shelby_Arr @RachelNeedsANap Funny story: As a kid, I corrupted my Pokemon Blue and its nearly-complete Pokedex. My hazy memory is that I called Nintendo, distraught, and they literally sent me a new one with the same starter and a close-enough Pokedex. If true, this was the best customer service of my life.

  • MercuriusXeno Xeno (@MercuriusXeno) reported

    @Caittastic_ I tweeted something false and I have to fix it. I was led astray by a bad google prompt. I joked that Nintendo would've sued Game Genie back in the day, and joked "oh wait" they did. *They sort of did* but it was weird. Game genie sued first and then Nintendo countersued.

  • FenrirVolsunga Fenrir Volsunga (@FenrirVolsunga) reported

    @The_CrapGamer @JamesLauseng Sony literally saved FF7 as Squaresoft were having trouble with the development with Nintendo because the cartridges were small in memory and cost alot.

  • graysongrayson graysongrayson (@graysongrayson) reported

    @radicalciel Took em four months to finally send my Nintendo Switch to another company that can actually fix it. (Hopefully). They openly admitted that the repair just hadn’t been done. No one worked on my console for four months.

  • ansel_G_ ansel (@ansel_G_) reported

    @pregoparafuso @NintendoAmerica Maddening is supposed to be difficult. And with hard mode you can still grind for exp without any trouble just like normal.

  • ShelbyBlossomYT Shelby (@ShelbyBlossomYT) reported

    mario maker 2 would be 1000x better without the bad nintendo switch online in multiplayer. versus would be so fun without lag.

  • TheOmegaGenesis Tom Ozborn (@TheOmegaGenesis) reported

    @ScottiesDesigns @NXNStreams This mod, called “Slippi,” was specifically for copies of the game “emulated” on a computer, which is technically piracy and therefore grounds for Nintendo to issue legal warnings to tournaments using Slippi.
