    I cant wait for the typical ad to roll out:

    "We would like you to pay to play"
    *family tries to play the wii, but azn dude holds out hand waiting for them to pay*...*a decent amount of cash is handed over*, then every1 smiles...til next month when they have to pay again.... lol

    I wonder if this is all leading up to Mario Kart Wii and we'll have to pay to play it online. The timing...... you know?

    It's way to much speculation at this time, so far from the way I have taken it is the games are still free to play online, but the Pay to Play is a "premium" service most likely including voice chat/DLC in the mix with who knows what else.

    I think it was a bad call on Nintendos part not to include all the Details and explain it all. One thing that keeps Nintendo ontop is its price! Nintendo always gets you with extras but they have always left it as an option not forced which I think will continue with online. But this news without details just gives room for people to throw mud about Nintendo with no facts to back it up.

    They have a contract agreement for online game support already set-up for the life of the console, part of game price goes for the service, why charge more for something you already paid for? You wouldn't, you charge more for something new!

    Don't get your panties in a twist till we hear the full story. I bet its different than all these articles are "interpreting" it as.

    Even if they do charge for online service its said to only be on some games not all. In the end the only one who would get a boost from this is PS3 being the only one left supporting 100% Free online, besides DLC of course. But honeslty PS3 could use the boost. lol

    Personally I wouln't mind paying for some online games but they better be big titles and i better get some extras for paying as opposed to free games.

    A few things are making me think about this
    1)The reason it is comparitivly difficult to add a friend on a wii is because they were trying to make it safer for kids. But if they make improvements on the wiicodes if it is charged, thats really the only way i can see it going. Therefore nintendo is, in all honesty, trying to hard to impress one set of customers and by doing so are perhaps losing there larger market

    2)What about games that are already out? Knowing my luck, this willl come into action around the time SSBB and mariokart come out in the UK, so its likley at least one will charge, but for games I've already got, like Mario and Sonic at the Olympic games and Mario Strikers, will I be expected to pay? Because it seems unfair that they'd let me buy a game where i wasn't expecting to be charged for multiplayer, and then doing so. Surely this goes against some advetisement law?

    3)Less important, but would this mean we no longer have to pay for the internet channel? Many of my mates who downloaded the internet channel regret it because it has lead to there wii crashing etc, so when i purchased my wii i decided it probably wasnt worth 500 wii points(well, i dont pay for it on my laptop or psp, why should i pay on anything else!). But if they have a subscription for the a connection, then it would seem fair if all who pay dont have to waste more money downloading a channel related to what theyre paying £** a month for

    4)How much? The wii is selling well, partially because it is the cheaper console. But if its pay and play is to challange the 360, one might persume they'd be similarly priced. I personally persume a conversion of 1000 wiipoints a month, but it will probably be higher.

    Wow that was Exactly my point people already have the wrong concept of Pay to Play because they didn't explain it well enough.

    1. It Has nothing to do with Wii code, They have mentioned nothing of changing this style setup for "family friendly online"

    2. No you don't have to pay for the games out now and probably not for alot of them in the future as well this is a game by game basis not a new internet service for everything.

    3. Again not a subscription its a game by game basis and you will probably still have to pay for the internet channel. Nintendo didnt develop it Opera web browser did and at there own expense. They are simply recouping the cost of making the 3rd party web browser that is all.

    4. Again this is a game by game basis not a subscription service, there is no way to tell what the cost will be or what it will include. If it is for online service itself or if it is for bonus services like DLC/Voice Chat support. It will probably be pretty cheep and depend on how much you want to add/download to the game in question.

    "Come on Nintendo you could have brought it out better than this. Everyone is freaking out already and have no clue what they are talking about. Bad move sir bad move."

    i think this is a good move by Nintendo, lets just hope they really improve their online service because of this, all they need now is a hard drive or something so we will be able to store DLC.
    Games Currently Have:
    WiiSports, WiiPlay, Links Crossbow Training, Mario Strikers Charged Football, Super Mario Galaxy, MOH:H2, Battalion Wars 2


    Mario Strikers Friend Code - Whenever i Next go on it!!!
    Battalion Wars 2 Friend Code - 167-631-618-164
    MOH:H2 Persona: Daz


    Pm Me if you add me on anything please so i know to add you!

    They have said they already fixed this storage issue with a new Compression format for Wii-ware/DLC that will compress everything untill its needed.

    I doubt we will ever need a HD. Maybe in the future it will use the SD card or a USB flash Drive for the download junkies. But thats it, it doesn't need huge amounts of space because it doesn't have to work nearly as hard as the other 2 consoles for the end result.
