Nintendo looking to improve Switch game discoverability on eShop

I was trying to use the Switch eShop the other night when a mate was round to buy a Co-op game but couldn't find a way to search for that category and gave up in the end!

There was a lot of hype around ARMS but I was underwhelmed with the game. I wonder how many people out of the 1m are in the same boat as me?

I actually did a live chat with Amazon a couple of days ago to see if they would price match Argos. They said they couldn't but would pass my comments to the relevant department.

See if retailers all drop their prices because of our feedback it will get them all down. Don't keep quiet!

Titanfall 2, Gears 4 price plunge at HMV on Black Friday

phoenixology

1 year ago

As it's predecessor wasn't on PS4 on release because of the Xbox One exclusive, by the time it finally came out I wasn't interested. I'm still not interested in Titanfall 2 because I never played the first.

That said, this discount tempts me.

Nintendo axes SpotPass feature of 3DS Letter Box

phoenixology

5 years ago

This is quite upsetting for me.

I have a 8 year old son from a previous relationship and him and mother moved away so Spotpass is one of the features we use to send each other messages as he's too young for phone, etc.

Maybe we should both get PS Vitas if Nintendo want to move a basic messaging service which is expected on such a device this day and age?

Wii U external hard drive required to download Lego City Undercover, Nintendo says

phoenixology

5 years ago

If Nintendo knew this game was in the launch window of the Wii U why put only a 32GB HDD in their highest spec package?

PS3 can come with a 500GB HDD and Xbox 360 comes with 250GB (supposedly an older generation of consoles).

I feel this simply discourages anyone to download retail games off their eShop without fear of storage space.


NOTE: I own a Wii U premium. This is my rage.

Ubisoft "hurt" seeing Rayman Legends Wii U fans upset at delay, extends new olive branch

Don't really care about another demo, I just want to give them my hard earned cash for the full game!

As @Ultrasoundwave says it should be a timed exclusive and Ubisoft should bring the game out now on the Wii U.

It wouldn't be the first time a game has been released on one format and the next format release was months/years.

Oh man, I bought the Wii U on launch and this was one of the games I was looking forward to playing at the end of the month.

Coincidentally, the only other console I've bought at a launch was the Sega Dreamcast.

I hope haven't cursed it or this isn't a sign that the Wii U is the next Dreamcast.

This is great news. Shows Nintendo don't mind the preowned market and people buying preowned Wii U's don't need to purchase them off the eShop.

If I worked at Nintendo and had a business head I probably would have just tied purchases to a Nintendo ID, but ah well.
