They seem hell bent on going after romsites so they better start providing a way to play their old catalogue on the switch.
I’d prefer my nintendo account to provide the rights to buy their old games one time and play it on the switch and any future console they make. There is no reason this cannot be done beyond greed.
Yeah, they should have done this ages ago, as this is the only company where I don't think piracy of past games is an issue. People who want to pay for these titles have, and those of us who gave up ages ago, just play them by whatever means we have at our disposal.
In my mind, they seem "hell bent", but only in their lack of offering what is probably the best back catalog in all of gaming. Disney makes a killing each year in nostalgia, and for a company like "N" who is beyond slow in releasing anything worth a damn. It seems their past library would be a good way to fill voids, but for some unknown reason, it never seems to be the case.
I personally think it is because they want to keep charging for the same stuff over and over, and each new gen they are finding that harder to do. So they have to come up with more nickel & dime ways of achieving the same goal, and mask it as something else. I don't know what their planning in regards to this online service and past games, but I would recommend to anyone with even a passing interest, do not get your hopes up. LOL
