    GDC 2008: Pay to Play Your Wii
    Nintendo announces a mysterious new service.
    by Daemon Hatfield

    February 22, 2008 - During a Game Developers Conference session called "Planning the Wii Menu" today, Nintendo's Takashi Aoyama announced a new Pay to Play program. This will be a new version of the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection (NWFC). Aoyama explained that NWFC will remain a free service, but forthcoming experiences will require users to pay a fee to enjoy. These services will fall under the new NWFC: Pay to Play program. Games that utilize the new service will feature a logo similar to the one used for NWFC but is orange and reads Pay to Play at the bottom.

    Unfortunately, Aoyama did not go into details about what games or services we will be paying to play. He did say Nintendo is taking steps to ensure consumers don't mistakenly buy a Pay to Play game with the expectation that they will be able to access the entire game for no extra charge.

    If it has voice chat and is inexpensive then I'm actually just fine with this idea.

    Thats shit
    Xbox Live actually offers a service. I don't think the Wii can
    PS3's is still free so I guess it wins

    It could be good since the pay to play games would have more motivation to pay attention to and fix online play issues.

    Wow, IGN usually doesn't post rumors. This makes me sad.

    This aint rumour. Hopefully it may apply to games that have DLC you have to purchase to download because if they keep churning out the same rubbish and you have to pay to play it its going to upset a huge amount of people and rightly so.

    Oh you have to be friggin kidding me, paying for online gaming.

    NO communication
    NO headset
    NO choice of FPS online
