So the Nintendo Online Service is used by 29.7 %. Sony's Online Service is used by 37.6 %. I think Nintendo will try to hit Sony's numbers as target.

That's a bit better. I bet it'll improve even more if they don't limit that limited edition of Super Mario Maker 2 with the 12 free months too much. That limited edition is going to sell out no matter how many they limit it to, with a deal like that.

Yep Mario Maker 2 could be the key for them. Also, maybe pokemon will have an online aspect?
