Switch eShop adds section for games on sale

Posted on October 15, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop

Finding out about the games that have been discounted on the Switch eShop hasn’t been entirely easy. But with a new inclusion on the store, it shouldn’t be as big of an issue going forward.

Today, Nintendo added in a section on the Switch eShop for all of the games currently on sale. Right now it’s somewhat barren, but as more and more games are released, it should fill up quickly.

    The E-shop may be a bit disorganized, but god dang, is it much better than the freaking PSN shop. Now that’s a trash design.

    • ShonenJump

      They copied and pasted the psn shop from ps3 to ps4 lol. They really should fix it.

      • KnightWonder

        If they did, they sure did a better job. With the PS4, you have to go through two different screens just to get to the deals.

        • ShonenJump

          the ps3 psn shop was like opening a app . The ps4 one is like opening a webbrowser. Fast and direct. Design is still trash though

          • KnightWonder

            That’s what I’m talking about, the design is pure trash. For instance, on the PS4 PSN shop, they take up the Game tab with TV and Movies, Free, and other stuff, when they should have had stuff like Recent Releases, Deals, Demos, stuff like that. The organization is bad.

            Everything about PS4’s interface is garbage. Your game order gets screwed up because TV & Video has to update to the front of the list even when you don’t use it. Things like that. Demo Licenses never go away and stay in your library. PS Store is trash and scrolling through letters to search for games is tedious and laggy af. Even sleep mode, while very nice to have, slower. Switch is all I wanted in interface and speed. Themes and little tweaks will make it the best ever.
            {edit} jesus I just repeated what you said. You get it, man.

          • KnightWonder

            Pretty much. There’s only two other things I want added: A Demo tag, and an Alphabetical tab, where every game is categorized by its name.

          • ShonenJump

            They ported the bad ps3 psn shop to the ps4 instead of making a new psn shop for ps4. That’s what im talking about. Hell the original ps3 psn store was better than the crap we have now.

            Previous week I got a check for $4800 for working for a few hr in my free time… I am so thrilled that I finally stumbled upon something that I am able to utilize to bring in some dollars on the side…

    Thank you Nintendo! a demo tab would be also nice. And maybe a video/trailer section in the future ?

    • Thomas_NE

      And categories (not just on search). And a highlighted Nindie or 5 per week. Right now there’s no way for people who don’t read game sites (plenty of those) to discover about games like Shovel Knight, Fast Racing RMX and other great games that have fallen off the top 15. They should make that a top 30 as far as I’m concerned.

      I guess the good thing about the Sales tab is devs will put their game on sale just to get attention now.

      • ShonenJump

        Ah yes easy access categories tab. Good thinking Itoshiki sensei!

  • Hylian Ticipated

    I beat Brian again, but he posts quick anyways. Dang you! So many comments right away 🙁

  • Hylian Ticipated

    Brian, you have jumpy finger, dude!

  • Nice~. That’s very considerate of them.

  • Locky Mavo

    Nice! Still needs a few more improvements, but this is good. An improved search system and some eshop music would be nice.

  • The eshop is going to need more sections than that. At this point the Wii U eshop menu is still better.

  • RoadyMike

    Finally

  • Roto Prime

    Wooot

  • Melatelo

    Ok for reals though the fact it’s taking them this long to add basic features you’d expect in any digital store-front is kindness boggling to me. Demo section next hopefully?

  • awng782

    So Nintendo just added a section in the eShop that wont feature any of their own first party games until 2019 lol

  • AJK

    This will probably encourage devs to discount their games as it will get those games new exposure

  • Thomas_NE

    Eff off, Bonnie

  • Snackster1001

    Very useful feature, happy to see Nintendo added it in. Now I hope they also add a genre/categories tab to make browsing for certain types of games easier. Either that or add music to the eshop (it’s so static without the music).

  • MagcargoMan

    How about adding a Virtual Console, Nintendo? No?

    • Addy

      How about not turning into that low life who complains about the Virtual Console almost every week and have some alleged stalker criticize and insult that person?

      • MagcargoMan

        How about not being that low life that defends Nintendo’s utterly poor decisions?

        • Addy

          How about not incorrectly labeling me a defender and just download the roms?

          • MagcargoMan

            Oh, so you’re just encouraging stealing then?

          • Addy

            I don’t want to buy Super Mario World yet again at full price. There may be a discount feature, but I doubt they’ll be marked down to a dollar or two, maybe half the price at best. Also I’m not encouraging, what ever you or others do, I don’t care.

  • Addy

    About time. Too bad there are very few sales that are worth the purchase to me.
