Nintendo Switch Online Issues ReportsLatest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
@GravesMainYeet Playstation and Nintendo are both okay. They both specialize in different things Also removing any of them would cause a huge drama issue in the gaming community Honestly i would vote out the Atari.
@Cesar_is_phat @eaphen It's definitely extreme compared to the competition, albeit the service is still leaps and bounds better than Nintendo's Online. Nintendo's makes me feel like an ******* for being subbed to it, but I have a family sub and I'm paying for other people so it doesn't bug me as much.
@tlwelch85 Thing about Nintendo is they literally do nothing to justify charging money for the switch online service, it's p2p, no servers are maintained, it's a paywall and yet it still looks better than $120 for xblg, that's how badly Microsoft have screwed up today, it's shameful.
@HiitssJohnny Netflix has no games and yet has less content over time and has increased prices over said problems. Even worse thanks F2P games. Netflix offers less and charges more. Sony is and argument Nintendo has no social abilities so year they can charge less.
Super Smash Bros Melee For the Nintendo GameCube is not even close to be broken as my life. I need to upload or I would not be relevant like ever.
I like Nintendo DS games but the problem is that most of them have become dated unlike the majority of Super Nintendo games.
@PredaZap @_BlessedRed This is false. Anyone who has played Nintendo games online with their friends, or a poorly implemented PC multiplayer know that reliable servers are crucial. Additionally, being able to easily game/speak together is valuable. It is genuinely a service, not a wall
nintendo's online services are so ******* *** oh my god especially while playing splatoon... who thought it was a good idea to decrease your rank if you disconnect 😐
I’m going to send an angry message to Xbox support because of the new price Wait what why isn’t going through... Xbox live servers are down whaaaaat For the 8th time today really Even Nintendo online lag is better than this garbage Xbox is pulling.....
@Twirlbound Hi there, no, didn't really work. Keeps crashing, but not as much though. Hopefully Nintendo are sending the reports to you, it lags (like stutters for a second) then freeze and crash. Seems like it is crashing when Autosave is trying to save and it is trying to load the area.
@OrdinaryGamers I already pay my service provider for internet. I shouldnt need to ALSO pay sony/xbox/nintendo to use the internet for games i have ALREADY PAID FOR. Just insane that this became the new normal
@WhitneyAsante You do realize Nintendo service ******* sucks right, I mean the price gauging sucks but switch online isn't worth ****,
@JesseHW_ You can send them in for free! Go to the nintendo website customer service. That’s what i did after i didn’t want to fix it the second time lolll
@Roys_Boy @thegamerator10 It still does. 20$ for the most horrendous and outdated "service" that they invest nothing into and just pocket the online fee is a lot worse than 120$ for a proper high quality service. Charging this much is terrible, but pocketing money like Nintendo does is a lot worse.
@Cesar_is_phat @eaphen Really? 120 a year? Damn. Do you at least get to keep the games you get with Games with Gold or are they like Nintendo online where they only exist while you have the service?
@DarkMirria1 @OctoriousYT @thegamerator10 Nintendo's is a lot worse. They charge a fragment of the price for far less than a fragment of the service. At least the other companies provide a proper service. Nintendo just pockets the money and invests none of it into their service.
@SpawnWaveMedia Dedicated servers(?) Of course those $120 aren't worthy of that servers, but that's the difference between MS, PS and Nintendo. Low ping is cool but not for $120. The problem is the $1 offer exploit. I bet this was done to counter that matter.
@berdyaboi *****, the real ****** problem is all these Nintendo characters they keep adding, like come on guys
@ZanzibarVenturz @decentraland I have no issue with someone buying an old brand and licensing the name... but you should know that it's literally just a name. When Nintendo sells a new console it's a company with a track record. This is just bunch of randos who bought a name and logo.
@igmrevaporation it would, idk about the lag part but they could totally give us all of that, idk why they wont. businesses suck im in no way defending nintendo lol, their service is horrible
@JenukiDa Unless Nintendo were to go God mode and give us like, GC, GBA, Wii, Wii U, DS, 3DS games, no lag, parties, invites then the price would be MILDLY JUSTIFIED
@igmrevaporation tbf i think they meant like if nintendo's online service quality as Microsoft 120 a yearrrr issss a biiiiit steeeeep but if it meant online modes actually functioning with little to no lag and a LOT more virtual console stuff, actual voice chat/parties, etc, id be worth it
@itsHunterTV @TeamYouTube They age restrict Nintendo speedruns, bro. I'm honestly shocked you don't run into this problem more often.
Here's hoping that sometime this year, Nintendo will announce a enhanced port or remaster of Xenoblade Chronicles X for the switch. I just need an excuse to play the game again as my Wii U is broken and I have no sufficient computer to emulate it.
@MandyleePlays Shite as Nintendo's Online service is, least its dirt cheap for a year. But same mindset there, glad we enjoy Single player games
On my Nintendo switch when I go to the Eshop it’s in German and not English 😩 idk how to fix this can someone help me?
@dungeonsgame at apocalypse plus on nintendo switch, it freezes most of the time when we play it. Please update and fix this!!!
@LuxAlptraum "Billingsley's first on-screen role was in 1991 as a difficult customer making a return in a customer service training video produced by Nintendo of America" is a delightful idea
@inkydojikko Seriously where are the Nintendo themed items too, i dont wanna fall off before the good stuff happens but I’m not working toward anything now and it’s killing me
@JCeretor @GameSpot Worse deal? Xbox is more expensive, but it’s actually a good service. Nintendo’s online is hilariously useless. It’s several generations behind the times. Just because it’s cheap it doesn’t mean it’s a good deal.
