I just bought wii. I wonder, Is online free or pay.? Iread one of post it said free and other said pay. I need update answer.
thank you .
Playing the wii online is free. The thread you saw is problably talking about the "pay to play" option that has been announced. This will be in certain games but no games that are being released soon.
You may have misunderstood them. The internet browser costs 500 wii points, but the games are free to play online.Originally Posted by Raz100perc

Technically, it is free. But if you need to buy some equipment to get on there, such as a wireless router, then you would need to spend some money.
All my online info is on my profile including Wii number, game friend codes, etc.
Depends on which game. Theyre realising games that you have *Pay to Play*
Thanks for the sweet sig Idjut!!!

even then pay to play refers to "extra features" like DLC/Voice chat, not the online play itself.
Atleast based on what nintendo reps have said so far, also why pay to play is going to be on a game to game basis and not a new online service, it only covers games that use "extra features". It will only cost you to download stuff and maybe for voice chat in the future.
Beyond that to do anything online with the Wii is free aslong as you have it hooked up to the internet. You simply have to pay to download things onto your Wii as anyone would probably expect to have to do.

In the FUTURE, Nintendo will have pay 'n play. But now, going online is free. Unless you want to buy channels, (cool interactive things), or virtual console games, (games from NES, SNES, ect), then you'll have to buy Wii Points at a store.
Even then they have not mention charging for online servie at all, the Pay to play has only been mentioned when it comes to extra online features not the basic "get online and play somone else". Most likely online play will continue to be free for the life of the console because they are in contract for this service and have already paid for it.Originally Posted by Dumbass_Luigi
We will just have to pay for the bells and whistles on some games if we want them in the future.

there was a pay and play thing that has been anounced and has yet to come out so right now all the online games are free. you will know because instead of the nintendo wifi logo there will be a pay and play logo.
