    Wii Online Free

    Here's an exerpt from a USA today article interviewing NOA's new President. Very good news. Wii Online will cost you no money, no subscription, two thumbs up to Nintendo once again.


    Q: A few years ago, Nintendo made a conscious decision to lie low when Microsoft introduced Xbox Live and began promoting its subscription online gaming service. In retrospect, does that look like a good decision?

    A: I wasn't here. What I can tell you is the way we've approached online play now is really with a view to the masses. With Nintendo DS (a dual-screen handheld player), for example, we offer free Internet play in a wide-ranging series of games. Our focus is getting as many consumers to enjoy that online experience as possible. And we've done that.

    Q: You're not pursuing a subscription model?

    A: We view online gaming as essentially an enhanced way to enjoy the gaming experience and drive more sales of hardware and software.

    Q: How do you extend your online strategy to Wii?

    A: It's the same premise. We will offer online-enabled games that the consumers will not have to pay a subscription fee for. They'll be able to enjoy that right out of the box. The Wii console is going to be Wi-Fi enabled, so essentially, you'll be able to plug it in and go. It won't have hidden fees or costs.

    Here's a link to the full article. ----> Article

    Yes, that was already know months ago. But it was a nice article compiling information that we've know for a while.
