Nintendo on why Switch launched without its full online features, talks Netflix/Amazon Prime & VC

Coming from Reggie Fils-Aime...

“As Nintendo looks at the overall online digital experience there's a recognition that there's a lot of work to be world class and we pride ourselves ... We believe our IP is world class. We believe that when we create a piece of hardware it's world class. We need to get our digital environment world class. And that's what we're working hard to do.

As we were proceeding along development, there were things we wanted to do with Nintendo Switch online that extended the development time. When you look at the products [from Nintendo] that have been delayed, typically it's worth the wait. Breath of the Wild is a great example.

We wanted to make sure that it is a robust, well-executed online environment, and for the $20 annual subscription fee, the consumer says, 'This is a no-brainer. I want to participate. I'm all in.’”

Reggie also said he recognizes that fans want things like Netflix and Amazon Prime, saying that he knows they're "important for a device you can take with you." Virtual Console was also mentioned by Reggie as something fans want, but once again, no specific plans were given.
