Nintendo Restricts New Switch NES Controllers Behind Online Subscription


GameSpot has the story.

Quote:
During Nintendo's September Direct, the company announced a new Joy-Con controller for Switch. These new Joy-Cons are shaped like NES controllers, and you'll only be able to buy them if you're an online subscriber.

The new controllers have the same Joy-Con bluetooth connection, so you'll be able to play wirelessly and charge your controller by connecting them to your Switch or a Nintendo charge station. That being said, you can't use the controllers while they're plugged into your Switch, so you can't use them in handheld mode. Two controllers, a right and a left Joy-Con, are sold in each box for $60. Shipments of the controller begin in mid-December 2018.

Nintendo is such garbage. Its just regurgitated games anyways. Make some new stuff and make hardware that can support new 3rd party games at the same level as everything else.

Love Nintendo - Can't wait for that mainline Animal Crossing. Not that big on the NES controllers though. Not my thing.

Someone call Nintendo and tell them the 80's ended a long time ago. Let's get with the times. The Nes controller sucked in 84, it still sucks.

^ You shut the hell up. I squealed like a girl when i saw those NES controllers slide into the switch.

As for this news...
Jesus.

I wonder if this is them attempting to get ahead of when the Switch is hacked and the Switch is running full rom sets with official nintendo controllers.

What if your internet goes out? I have a feeling they will backpedal on this.

Well that's just dumb, but then buying the same Nintendo games every 5 years is dumb too.
Emulators for the win!

The NES games in question are accessible with the online subscription. While they're not free, you're also not buying them (unless you're paying for the subscription just for these games).

This we can agree on, but there is some nice nostalgia being lost with Nintendo's BS in this department.
