Only on Japanese NSO. It is included in the latest update (15 July). In hindsight, they may have put it on there due to the incoming announcements. The mini direct news posted at the news channel on switch also asks players to try the original game on NSO.Oh wow, that’s on the NSO collection now? I’ll have to give it a look just for novelty’s sake.
Sony will be fine. If PS+ becomes harder to justify they will transition a portion of their customers to PS Now, or transform PS+ into something else.If those rumors about Microsoft razing the paywall for online multiplayer turn out to be true, I'm really worried for Sony. I don't think they could actually afford to try and tough it out without the PS+ revenue at this point.
Except Game Pass isn't a moneymaker, it's throwing money at gaining market share. Sony hasn't been in a position of being able to throw money at market share for a while now.PS+ is obviously a big moneymaker but Sony isn't below copying their competitors when they've been successful. PS Now could very easily be equivalent to Game Pass if they wanted it to be.
Game Pass won't make money as long as they are giving subscriptions away for a third of the price.
I hope you're right.Still, MS dropping online subs doesn't mean they're in trouble. They have a solid first party lineup and a loyal fanbase. Even the PS3 albatross sold similar numbers to Xbox 360, eventually. Plus they hold sway with third parties to secure exclusives.
74 percent of software sales were full game software digital downloads, compared to 53 percent the previous year.
I would suggest waiting for a nintendo direct. We all know there is one coming as they have no games on the horizon.I have 2 vouchers still, so Im considering picking up Pokemon Sword and Paper Mario, but not sure. Pokemon has been out for almost 1 year, but never on sale an I wish I could just get it on sale.
I know, Im doing a "check-up" about twice every week to make sure I still have time left to decide what to use the vouchers on. It sucks that they expire after 1 year, they should really never expire imo, it's pretty anti-consumer to not only have them expire, but also not being notified either through a Switch notification somewhere or through mail that they are about to expire. Nintendo just suck at online and ecosystem stuff imo, thanksfully it's cheap, if it costed more I wouldn't have subbed, I mean, the price that it is currently at for 1 year feels bad enough.Be aware that Nintendo doesn’t give a heads up before they expire.
I’d go for TMS and Paper MarioI know, Im doing a "check-up" about twice every week to make sure I still have time left to decide what to use the vouchers on.

Currently the choices are:
Xenoblade Chronicles - it looks good, but Ive played it already via Wii U backwards compatibility, so I have it on my wishlist to remember getting it someday when Im in the mood for it
Tokyo Mirrage Sessions - looks cool, never played it, but not that interested right now
Pokemon Sword - interested
Paper Mario - interested, but skeptical as Ive never played a Paper Mario before and read "mixed" reception about the combat system
Otherwise I currently own the Nintendo exclusives I care about/interested in.
I'm having a blast with Paper Mario. I'm not super far, but it's adorable. The dialogue is really funny without being cheesy or dorky. I can see why reviews are mixed about the combat -- it's definitely different. It's turn based, of course, but I'm meh on the fact that you have to make your turn within a time limit, and it's puzzle based. But if you don't see the solution right away, you can spend coins to increase the time, and I just got a buff item that increases all times. Hoping to see the first boss today if I can carve out some time to play!I’d go for TMS and Paper Mario
Yeah these remaster should be 30 AT MOST.Boy Nintendo doesn't fuck around with their Remaster/Re release pricing do they?
Reminds me of the stupid Disney 'Vault' shit from the 90s. Nintendo and Disney have the same portion of irrational and rabid fans willing to pay ANYTHING for this shit too. Hell, their motto should be 'Eternal Payment'
I don't see myself owning a nintendo console for a long long time. If ever.
And good lord at the super vocal minority of nintendo switch owner who generate endless hype over the Nintendo Directs. Become a more well rounded person or something.
