Recently with Nintendo Switch Online being enacted, the topic of paying to play online has been brought back up. Nintendo wasn’t the first to do this and most likely won’t be the last. The first case of Paid Online Play (P.O.P.) was on Xbox Live back in the November of 2002. But why do you even need to play online?

Didn’t you pay for that game you’re playing already? Why do we have to pay more to access one of the main selling points of a game? Should you get Nintendo Switch Online? Here is a list of Pros and Cons.

The Pros

  1. You get to play online with people across the world.
  2. NES system, which you get to play 20 classics and there are (supposedly) more to come in the future.
  3. You can finally save data to the cloud so if your system gets lost/damaged, when you get it back, you can pick up where you left off.

The Cons

  1.  It is messed up that you have to pay in order to back up your data.
  2. You already paid for games to play, so it’s like paying to play a mechanic of the game.
  3. Basically imposing a reason to get the phone app for the Switch, which seems forced upon us.
