    Allso they can give it free for a period of time. They can say becuase the delay it will be free for eks one month. If you dont got a wii the delay would not effected you, and if you dont hear about it before its over the delay didnt effect you either. So that way they wannt be unfair against anyone.

    I've had one since launch day and paid over the odds for the pleasure which I was prepared for (a UK unit, I am only recently working in Norway)- this isn't what I am on about really - this 'truefan' crap doesn't excuse the fact that they want to charge you for a [to all intents and purposes] FREE piece of software for functionality which comes as standard on millions of gadgets now anyway.

    The gist of this seems to be going the way of - "..screw you, you can't be a truefan unless you have a Wii by now.." A little unfair don't you think

    Free....FREE....OMG opera is not free for "gadgets". Goto their website and you will see that they charge around $24 for most phones.

    Their only going to charge $5 for the wii(500 points). $5....THATS IT.

    Stop bitching, and pay the money if you want it. Otherwise, deal with the free trial version.

    Also, browser software is not in any way trivial or simple. Its fairly complex and must be respected as such.

    The pleasure of having a launch Wii is...astounding
    I camped out for mine, (it was cold, so very cold, untill I got it, then I felt warm.) You should have seen us run, I have never ran so much...=]

    I'll just clear something up here:
    1) OK so you took my generalisation literally - my bad - fair enough. Most browsers are free, can we agree on that!?

    2) Think about the cost for a minute - if they can do it for this then what's stopping them doing it for ALL integrated apps? Do you really believe that Nintendo didn't factor this costing into the Wii launch price!!
    You say that I can stop bitching and pay the money - which I can do all day long but why should someone when the app has been offered free and then NOT? I am not bitching about paying for anything but what I am saying is why offer it free and then charge...for god's sake it's not about me per se but what about people who come later to the party..why should they pay??

    2) I am a former Windows software developer and do have a fairly good idea in what's involved with browser functionality, but thanks for pointing that out.
