Nintendo: The Switch's biggest challenge is broadening its appeal

Nintendo Switch console

And speaking of price cuts, Nintendo Switch eShop games are about to get a lot cheaper. Nintendo has now told fans that it is updating the My Nintendo service to reward gamers in an exciting new way.

My Nintendo subscribers accumulate Gold Points by buying qualified digital titles for the Nintendo Switch, Wii U or 3DS and physical titles for the Nintendo Switch.

The ability for My Nintendo members to use Gold Points to buy Nintendo Switch games will launch in early March in the United States, United Kingdom, and Europe. If you're coming up a bit short for a purchase, you can make up the difference with any of the usual payment methods.

Somewhat Positive News Coverage Somewhat Unlikely to Affect ConocoPhillips (COP) Share Price
It turned negative, as 62 investors sold COP shares while 536 reduced holdings. 91 funds opened positions while 283 raised stakes. The energy producer reported $0.14 earnings per share for the quarter, topping analysts' consensus estimates of ($0.02) by $0.16.

Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto says that the idea is to popularize the Nintendo Switch to the point where the device can exist between smart devices and other video game systems all on its own. Besides purchasing games, you can earn My Nintendo points by using Nintendo apps like Super Mario Run or Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp on your smartphone and signing into Nintendo services like the eShop. Gold Points earned through My Nintendo will be valid until the last day of the same month of the following year. So, if you earned them in March 2017, you'll have until the end of this March to use them before they expire. The Japanese company had experimented with the idea past year with Wii U and 3DS titles, but it was a temporary promotional campaign.

The My Nintendo loyalty program is about to get a sweet new perk.

The incredible new Nintendo Switch deal can be picked up from the Tesco website at the link below. They include Dragon Quest Builders, which is a sandbox adventure that allows you to craft different objects to rebuild the world of Alefgard. Nintendo Switch now has a huge library of exciting first- and third-party titles to keep gamers hooked.
