Nintendo Switch Online Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • Jim936 James Brumpton (@Jim936) reported

    @TMG_1991 @SteelSeriesUK My big issue with Switch/Pro controller is the lack of any headset integration. There isn’t one Nintendo offer either, which is frustrating

  • Kieran_Top The Flume Unplugged (@Kieran_Top) reported

    @RazeSpl2 This is the real reason why chargers are broken.... Nintendo online

  • skullhunter505 Mr.K (@skullhunter505) reported

    @SquareHardGamin Can't stand used games or any other used product. I buy most and especially important games on day one for any platform so this price issue for nintendo games don't matter to me. Plus like I said to puertotock if the item is still selling high it makes no sense to lower it.

  • sachaplan themaskedgamerspark ttv (@sachaplan) reported

    @HKiitten @DeadByBHVR I agree with you i used xbox too for a while but had this issue now i use my Nintendo switch pro controller

  • ShunuSweet Sweet Summer Shunü (甜夏淑女) (@ShunuSweet) reported

    @OhNoItsAlexx Sorry bro I think you kinda miss the context of the debate: the whole issue was with the fact that Nintendo's games don't drop prices, whereas games on the PS5 will likely lose their 70 buck tags in less months than the number of years it takes for Nintendo ones to do the same.

  • classicamysonic sam the gamer girl (@classicamysonic) reported

    my pro controller and right joycon both have problems with the analog sticks, while every other controller i've owned has never had these sorts of issues. and nintendo acts like these issues don't even ******* exist.

  • KingTurles KingT (@KingTurles) reported

    @VloggyBuddy @CapcomEurope @ImKatastrophe Sounds like a you problem if Nintendo banned you from their service

  • gameinvesting hopper (@gameinvesting) reported

    FIX GameStop: build the #1 physical inventory in the world BUY EVERY walk-in at EVERY STORE ADD a BUY BUTTON to EVERY website SKU give FREE BUY lists to EVERY customer BUY from @Nintendo @PlayStation @Xbox instead of distributors by playing hardball BUY from overseas

  • butthoIesex Noah Dml (@butthoIesex) reported

    Nintendo Release a new pokemon game NOW it is the onlt thing that could fix my mental heslth

  • yourpositions james (@yourpositions) reported


  • IsidoreSyziu Isidore Syziu (@IsidoreSyziu) reported

    @plainrocktweets my Nintendo Switch is broken

  • daehruoyserehw Sue-perspreader Event (@daehruoyserehw) reported

    I play my switch every day but ***** online play with flagship titles, ongoing issues with joycon drift, a soulless system interface that feels like a placeholder (especially compared to 3DS) and missing features /from previous nintendo consoles/ makes its promise feel wasted.

  • DaizouSuzuki Daidai Inc. (@DaizouSuzuki) reported

    Nintendo Switch's SRPG "Traditional Tactics Ne+" Patch ver. 1.0.2 is published. Change Rating information and fix a rare bug. Then this will be re-released at NOE's eShop soon.

  • DazzlynReed Dazzlyn!!! (@DazzlynReed) reported

    okay so the way i see it is that nintendo owes me big time for just brazenly stealing my incredibly good character design ideas. they should put me in charge of a golden sun remake duology where i fix literally everything.

  • Sonicfan12331 Sonic1233 (@Sonicfan12331) reported

    @flatpancakesss I think they’re a really neat in concept but man Nintendo just refuses to fix their flaws

  • IgorScouse igorscouser (@IgorScouse) reported

    @FootballManager Guys, game on Nintendo is still broken after second patch. Searching doesnt work. Touch controls often too.

  • dzlusion ztari (@dzlusion) reported

    @Shiori_Ishimaru @Drojiura its a problem with every type of controller, i’ve gone thru countless ps4 controllers because the more you use them joysticks become less reliable. but the nintendo switch ones are ten times worse for some reason and barely last 3 months

  • Thinginator90 Thinginator. (@Thinginator90) reported

    @kyameranu I think a Nintendo buyout is more likely. The dudes at Playtonic didn't leave Rare to be bought by Microsoft again. I could see a Nintendo buyout though. Wasn't the whole reason Rare left Nintendo because the rise in game development costs? I don't think that's a problem anymore.

  • Pigsterton Pigger #BLM (@Pigsterton) reported

    @OnTheDownLoTho Not my wallet.... future problems aside please nintendo make botw 2 a more linear game, my wallet won't fight the price to play then :D

  • RZ3181 RZ318 (@RZ3181) reported

    @KingGeoshi64 Every game ever made is affected by time constraints, hardware limitations, and budget issues. This isn't a Nintendo or EA problem, games like Crackdown 3 and Days Gone are also affected as well.

  • AlexWentzell Alex Wentzell (@AlexWentzell) reported

    @Retrorenegades_ You're forgetting Nintendo and Sony. Nintendo brought gaming back after the video game crash of 1983. Sony popularized the CD format in 94/95 & killed the cartridge, long before the Xbox came on the scene. I'm not taking away from Xbox or Sega at all, but all 4 were important.

  • burnthegamer Burn, the noun (@burnthegamer) reported

    Switch Pro? **** that. Remember the 32x or Sega CD? No? Well how about Nintendo just release a new dock that super powers the portable Switch? 20th century solutions to 21st century issues are all the rage.

  • ScottMRamirtha Scott (Starfy) (@ScottMRamirtha) reported

    @NintendoAmerica The Nintendo Online service keeps giving me and my friends communication errors while trying to play Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. We've played this game a lot so we know it's not internet issues. As a long timer customer, this has been really disappointing.

  • JashkallyFornia sheabutterbrotha🇭🇹 (@JashkallyFornia) reported

    im quite tired of losing online in smash bc of ******* lag and MY ******* THIRD PAIR OF JOYCONS ******* UP @NintendoAmerica PLEASE MAKE SOME ******* SERVERS THAT ARENT DOG ****

  • ZaloraSilver Zalora - currently in hell, but 2021 flavored (@ZaloraSilver) reported

    LOL JUST KIDDING. That friends list glitch makes the multiplayer unplayable! I have over 215 friends and it causes the game to freeze every 1 second. Sure hope @NintendoAmerica and @CapcomUSA_ fix that for the real game :>

  • ChaosKnight69 Curtis #BLMヾ(≧∪≦*)ノ〃 (@ChaosKnight69) reported from Manhattan, New York

    @amazon I pre-ordered Atelier Ryza 2 for the Nintendo Switch but did not receive the email with my bonus. Tried customer service but they kept pushing for $10 credit and wasn't really helpful at all.

  • TheHumorousLman King Lamar 👑 #TeamKong (@TheHumorousLman) reported

    I've never seen anyone actually use cloud saves as their primary way of saving game progression. Game devs give you so many ways to save your games and Sony and Microsoft also give alternatives (not sure about Nintendo) so is it really an issue for them?

  • amod252 Amod2526 (@amod252) reported

    @BerserkgamerG @MrUrimeshi @XcloudTimdog I don’t play on PC. I play on PS5, switch and Xbox. I wish Sony and Nintendo had a subscription service. Just works better for me

  • bloodberry_tart Berry 🍓🍰🖤 (@bloodberry_tart) reported
