Would it be fair for people who buy a Wii after June 31 to have to pay $5 for the Opera browser? Absolutely! Giving early Wii adopters Opera for free is a nice bonus. How often is it that early adopters end up getting shafted (by a price drop) by buying a console early?Originally Posted by climbatiz
Those of us who bought the Wii at (or near launch) had the Wii with only the Photo Channel and a skeleton of the Shopping Channel. People who buy their Wii after June 31 will probably have 6 fully functional channels from the get-go. If they have to pay $5 for a fully operation Opera browser, it is a small price to pay for them... a nice little bonus (getting it for free) for us.
I really admire how Nintendo has been handling the launch and after-launch of the Wii.
