Last month Nintendo announced that the Switch's online service would require a paid-for subscription, similar to Xbox Live and PS+, Now we know....

1) Nintendo president Kimishima tells the Nikkei Switch's online service will be priced at 2-3,000 yen ($17.50 - $26.50) *YEARLY*. Which is approx £14-£21ish

I think £20 mark is more than likely, hopefully see sub cards soon and that'll tell us also

Yes, good news! What about the super bowl ads? The extended one is a bit cringey but overall I was impressed.

If the switch is £280 here and $300 in the states and then the online service could be up to $26.50 I fail to see how it could possibly be £20. Probably £25.

FYI the Switch is JP¥30,000 which currently equals US$265 or GB£209.
Also AFAIK Japanese prices include sales tax which I found is 10% :{

How much does Xbox Live and PS Plus cost in Japan I wonder? :{

If they stick with the whole free game for 30 day. Then I don't see myself needing the switch live system.

Xbox live I paid for a year for the games. Ps4 I play casually online. Doubt I'd get a switch for online gaming.

But for price it's decent, let's see how reliable it'll be compared to live and ps+

Since ehen do exchange rates get taken into account it will be 40 quid here and any price is too much anyway

Looked up the Xbox and PS Japan prices earlier today.
Xbox Live Annual: 5378 Yen
Playstation Plus Annual: 5143 Yen

Compared to 2000-3000 yen, this is a really pleasant surprise from Nintendo. Looking forward to it if it means they improve their servers :D
