With the days of floppy disks and CD-ROMs well and truly behind us, online gaming subscriptions are becoming increasingly important in the world of video games, which is precisely why Japanese gaming giant Nintendo unveiled the features included with the upcoming Nintendo Switch Online service.
This gaming subscription will include packages that range from $3.99 for a one-month subscription to $19.99 for a year, as well as family packages. However, for this price, subscribers get a whole lot more than just a few games.
The Nintendo Switch Online service offers a range of high-tech features, including the ability to save games on the cloud, without taking up precious console space. Members can also use the cloud-connected service to download classic games in case they are in a nostalgic mood.
With single-player and multi-player gaming options also added to the mix, it's clear that this gaming subscription is targeted towards gamers who are easily bored and want to be able to enjoy different kinds of gaming experiences with one subscription.
