Having spent the last twelve years or so being accused of not understanding the whole concept of online gaming, Nintendo has finally launched its big pitch to get with the times with its latest console success, the Switch.

There are a few differences between primary console and non-primary consoles.

The new Nintendo Switch Online service has finally made its big debut.

The eShop maintenance is over, and now the games begin. You can download your content to non-primary consoles, but you can only play that content while that Switch is connected to the internet. Once that trial is donezo you can spend $3.99, $7.99, or $19.99 for one, three, or 12 months respectively (you can also apply Gold Coins to your balance). The first Switch that logs onto the Nintendo eShop will be activated as the primary console though you can change that by deactivating the current console and then accessing the eShop on a different one.

The game you're playing will pause automatically when you lose that internet connection and resume when your connection is restored. Switch Online, a new subscription service, will help Nintendo make it better.

After all, it looked remarkably similar to the system they'd just botched, and with the company's unusual ability to always seem like they're out of touch with what modern gamers want, it was easy to worry that the Switch would arrive, crash, and burn.
