Nintendo charging for previous gen transfers is kinda scummy.

Yeah yeah yeah, Free Trial and whatever. Fact is after that you have to pay, for something that really should be standard. It's honestly really cheap, and the sort of move I expect from companies like EA and M$. I guess even Nintendo aren't immune to this. And it's an annual fee too, which is even worse, this would have been FAR better as a product you can buy and then use in conjunction with an SD card.

Personally, I don't mind paying something like $5 per year, because that's really not a huge deal. I guess I'm the only one, though...

Since this doesn't look to be a 6-at-a-time deal, just do one bulk transfer then never use it again.

Yeah, I don't know why they expect us to pay for an optional service that amounts to having a bunch of servers that will regularly require power, maintenance, etc. That sort of infrastructure sounds pretty cheap, especially considering how much they do with free online, etc., right?

I agree with u completely... I'm pissed... I never thought this day would arrive... GF just lost a lot of my respect...

I really don't understand why this is such a big deal. It's so much more convenient than it was in past generations. I'm thankful I don't need a Wii U and some stupid app to transfer, tbh.

To be fair it is a cloud and needs to be maintained. The fact that we expect them to pay for a service they provide for us and not being prepared to pay 5$ a year makes me feel like a spoiled brat.

they arent charging for previous gen transfers, they are giving free trial time. they are charging however for continued use which does require maintenance. otherwise you know...hackers....software deca.......power bill to keep servers going......your right though we should get it free and just cross fingers that doesnt happen.

Do you know how much electricity is need to operate hundreds of servers that needs to be kept cool?

Are you so poor that you can't even pay your own electric bill for your home?

Its just 5 bucks for a year and you whine so much, unless you are a kid, there is no excuse.
