    Has the pay to play even got an announcement date of when it will start? No games that are scheduled to come out soon will have p2p anyway.

    Aoyama explained that Nintendo will begin "collecting fees for some services [that] will allow us to adapt flexibly." In other words, by subsidizing additional, unnamed service and feature costs to consumers, Nintendo feels they can explore new concepts and channels.

    He added that it was a Nintendo initiative to avoid misleading consumers into thinking they can buy games that can be played entirely free when they cannot (whether or not this implies an initiative to begin charging for multiplayer content was unclear).
    So we really have no clue what will and will not be a Pay to Play game.
    I'm not sure why all these articles on the topic are straying from the "extra content" and the fact it will be on a "game to game" basis. Nintendo has mentioned nothing about a new online support setup, that is all speculation.

    But so far the extra online content has been confirmed by Nintendo, and it consist of Voice Chat and DLC So I would assume these will be some of the "new online features" included in the Pay to Play, atleast the DLC. Would be nice if they included Voice Chat for free.

    They have not mentioned any change to the current free online play "getting rid of friends codes." The acctual online support is locked in by contract for the life of the system, so they have no reason to change the free online support being it its already paid for.

    So just based on Mario Kart's time frame and the fact it could include Voice/DLC it could be pay to play but most likely will still support the "no bells and whistles" online for free, aswell as every other online game. They just don't want everyone picking up a newer game thinking everything they do on it will be free of charge online.
