But I can't say that there is anything about the service that has made me want to gravitate toward it. but it does allow my daughter and a couple of her friends to do some gaming online with each other on the switch, so I suppose from that standpoint, the $20 was worth it. Considering the far more limited scope of the services available versus on Xbox and PlayStation, the $20 price tag seems rather inline with what it offers.

It seems like Nintendo could do alot more, but they do seem to have a knack for making some strange decisions, and I dont understand why there online services are as limited as they are.
