Resident Evil 7 Switch 'makes no promises' preserving your save file

Are they trying to make you buy the Nintendo Online service?

Resident Evil 7 Switch 'makes no promises' preserving your save file

Is the future of gaming not actually owning anything but licenses, with no guarantees regarding your progress? Possibly. It's not the full reality right now but some companies are pushing for it, and there's something you should probably know about the cloud version of Resident Evil 7 on Switch.

Okay so you're basically renting the game, we knew that when it was announced. But did you know your save data might not be safe even if you paid to rent it? According to a clarificaiton post by Capcom, there are "no promises" that your save will be preserved, and since you can't save it locally, you'd be out of luck if it decided to nuke itself.

It's a stark contrast to say, an MMO, particularly World of Warcraft, where Blizzard guarantees user data for years. It's an experiment, that's for sure, and I wonder if it'll do well enough in Japan to warrant a worldwide test. If it gets to that point hopefully all the save kinks will be worked out by then.

LOL....why the fuck not? It's not like you can do anything with a save file without the game.

Games I'm hyped for
The Last of Us Part 2, RE2 Remake, The Last Night

Current Platforms:
PC (i7-7700K, 16GB, GTX 980Ti), Wii U, PS4

Well... cloud gaming is s**t as it is.

For me, it's shocking that they are making a cloud emulator rather than actually port the game.

Imo, people should definitly not support these things.

After looking at some videos on this game performance, it's will most likely fail.

Add another one to capcom's greedy failure list.
