Remember when they said online was a fad? And then eventually forced limited online connectivity with friend codes? Those sure were great trends. Boy am I glad they didn't follow others on that one.
How about their consistently slow/non-user friendly shops? That's a great trend.
Or tying digital purchases to hardware so if you lose your 3DS, you have to file a police report before they will relocate your account info.
Or when they didn't include a harddrive? Boy do i hate when I buy a console and find out it has space for saves and other data
Or putting out games like Mario Maker on 3DS with all the useful sharing functionality messily stripped out of it, demonstrating their continued lack of understanding of the internet or the appeal of their own games.
And they're continuing this time-tested approach with Switch by:
-Charging $80 for your controller
-trying to incentivize online subscriptions with a single 20+ year old ROM per month which you don't even get to keep
-Overcharging on underpowered hardware without even packing in the software supposedly meant to demonstrate "all the fun uses" of the Joy-Con.
-requiring a smart device to be how you manage your online account and even use base functions like voice chat....
Developers were sending back their WiiU devkits before the thing even came out. What reason is there to believe others won't do the same with the Switch? I haven't seen optimism drop so far for a system as I have between its unveil in November to last week's presentation.
