Cross play with switch version?

Is the original going F2P or something? What's happening here?

the messaging is confusing. just found this from Eurogamer --> eurogamer.net/art…aul

I don't believe it's going F2P, but the monetisation strategy is definitely changing. the two articles I posted seem to contradict one another about old content becoming free though.
Oh balls (pun intended) paid full price for this only 2 weeks ago

It's a fantastic conversion for Switch but you'll do much better with a Pro controller than just using the joycons due to the analogue stick sensitivity.

The only major downside to this over playing on a different console is having to play over Wifi, so I get many more matches that lag compared to when playing on PS4 with a wired connection. (I live in a rural location with only access to standard copper broadband, this may be less relevant for those who can get speeds faster than 10-15mb/s)
Cheers for posting. Will buy this tonight.

Yes, rocket league uses its own servers for maintaining profiles, so you can add friends on other platforms by using their in-game username

If you buy this from a European store can you still play online?

Of course, but you still need the online membership.

Great thanks! Believe it’s cheaper in some Scandinavian stores

You'll still need the Rocket Pass if you want decent rewards, works out to another £8.
Season ends Dec 2nd or 8th, I think, so you can jump on the next one.
Thanks for posting, we've added this thread to today's Highlights
Anyone know how you get the banner with a sort of galaxy star design and rocket league car on right side? Seen lots of people with it recently but do not know what it is called and can’t find anything about it online.
Great deal I was about to buy this for 28 at cex heat

Get a USB LAN adapter for the Switch?

Any ideas when this price drop runs until?
I've finally made use of my store credit, thanks @pirate1.

Brilliant, struggling to find on the site thanks
Sorry but I am hoping someone can help please. I am new to the Switch as just bought one for the lads birthday present but have no games so have a couple of questions:
Is it better to buy games from eshop or have the physical game?
Do I need some sort of subscription or is that just for online playing?
Is this a good game for me to buy just to get used to the platform etc? Switch still boxed up at the moment

Thanks

I have looked through the thread and it seems unclear and maybe unintentionally misleading. At first glance it seems you get all the bonus stuff and up-to-date date with latest update content. Later in thread it is established RL uses its own servers and a season pass with apparently the additional decent extra stuff is an extra £8. All things considered I remain to be convinced this a particularly great deal. It would of course help if Eshop product pages were a bit clearer with more detail and generally more informative.

Yes, the subscription is for online playing. It has other benefits such as cloud saves and free to play retro games but not completely necessary. With physical games you can obviously sell on if you want so that's a major advantage, the rest comes down to price, convenience and personal preference.

I got this one in a sale and would recommend

Check this site for deals on a case, there's likely to be one this week I'd expect. Screen protector is necessary I'd say too.

Buying digital or physical depends upon your needs.
If you buy a lot of digital, you will need a large sd card.
Buying physical is generally cheaper, but you will need to switch out the cartridges depending on what you wanna play.
People opt for digital for convenience, plus when you have an account set up, you can -to a certain extent- region hop to get better prices from other regions (South Africa, Norway and Russia often have better prices, other stores do too, but it'll take more than a region change in your settings).
There are certain games, that are just cheap enough to stick with digital; Rocket League, Hollow Knight, Steamworld Heist, Wargroove, Minecraft, all go on offer semi-regularly, whereas physically they're in the £20 margin.
You just gotta find your biting point.

You will need a subscription for online play, CD keys do a year for about £15.
Eshop games can only be bought once a Switch has been set up, so best getting the account up and running on it first, buy what you want, then box it back up.
You don't have to download them, just click cancel after buying them, they'll be in your library.
Fortnite is free on switch and free online to play, ftr.

Hope that helps.

I don't own this yet and haven't played it, but my understanding is that some previous paid DLC is now free or will be free before the end of the year. This DLC is Supersonic Fury, Revenge of the Battle-Cars, and Chaos Run . Whatever they are.

I bought an amazon Ethernet adaptor for playing in docked mode. Definitely makes a difference
