Hitting the sweet spot?
Credit to Dystify who posted information on Twitter about the Switch price structure. has posted on his Twitter account details about the Switch online pricing structure. In an interview with Nikkei, Nintendo President Kimishima quoted the only pricing of the Switch to be between 2,000 to 3,000 yen yearly. That would put it approximately in between $17.50 and $26.50 USD. For that amount it seems to be a great value.
In comparison, PS Plus costs $60 a year, the Xbox One Gold Membership is $60 a year or $10 monthly. There are other smaller subscriptions based on the amount of months that you can subscribe to, but the Nintendo Switch subscription is much lower than that.
There are still no specifics on how exactly the subscription will work, and this will probably be revealed later on the year. The online subscriptions themselves won’t start until late 2017.
