    If it has voice chat and is inexpensive then I'm actually just fine with this idea.

    Thats ****
    Xbox Live actually offers a service. I don't think the Wii can
    PS3's is still free so I guess it wins :D

    It could be good since the pay to play games would have more motivation to pay attention to and fix online play issues.

    Wow, IGN usually doesn't post rumors. This makes me sad.

    This aint rumour. Hopefully it may apply to games that have DLC you have to purchase to download because if they keep churning out the same rubbish and you have to pay to play it its going to upset a huge amount of people and rightly so.

    Oh you have to be friggin kidding me, paying for online gaming.

    NO communication
    NO headset
    NO choice of FPS online

    but we are going to charge you?

    Anyone wanna buy a Wii?

    Money corrupts people and their ideals.

    This is not a rumor, ive seen this other places too.

    I guess we will see if hypocracy stands within Wii gamers since everyone seems to think paying for XBL is blasphemous. But unless Nintendo puts some nice **** out its ass, I duno if they will make much money. But I predict Japan will get all the good stuff.

    Sounds tasty.

    With a paid-for online, Nintendo can make even MORE money off of people.

    Maybe we can get a decent online experience. I just hope it doesn't get cluttered with FPS.

    I'll pay for it if it gets rid of friend codes and throws in a lobby.


    But then again, it doesn't specifiy exactly WHAT you're going to be paying for.
    Might be like some of those PS2 games where you need a subscription to a site to play them.

    lol, Nintendo drops another notch.
    Microsoft was always >> Nintendo anyway.
    I'd rather pay to play GoW than a retarded underwater fish molestation session.

    EDIT: I'm sure this is true, but hopefully we won't be seeing it anytime soon. Just another shameless attempt at making money.

    ouch.

    I won't be buying. First of all, Brawl won't be using this service, its online is going to be free. Secondly, did anyone think of Mario Kart right when they read this? Surely it isn't a coincidence that Mario Kart's online is AMAZING and that they're just now announcing PtP? Hope you guys enjoy Mario Kart online, because I won't be playing.

    True, if this "Pay to Play" is put into action on Mario Kart, there is NO chance I will be purchasing the game. As good as it may seem, it's not worth the money...especially coming from Nintendo.

    Yea like al ot of other people said. Nintendo online's service aint grait but hey its free! So they'd better come up with a very cool service that makes me want to pay!

    Else its bye bye online wii games :( Im really curious for what service we would have to pay! Didnt see that one coming from Nintendo thats for sure!

    EDIT:

    Im not scared for mario kart. That means going from that from a very vague rumor to the actual service in use in less than a month or so for us europeans
