    cool. and its free till summer 07.

    Hopefully I get my Wii. I'm going with my older bro today at midnight to see if I can get myself a Wii, we agreed that if we can't get one from stores we are gonna rob someone. I wish I was joking; I wish I get a Wii.

    Gonna leave soon. wish me luck.

    How many times this has been debated i dont know- i think we all came to the conclusion that once you downloaded it, its free... FOREVER. The only ones who have to pay are those who buy their wii after July 07... At least i think thats right. So many people saying differant thinks i forget whats fact and fiction!

    Ok, I could be wrong here, but I have a suspicion that the opera broswer may not be free at all. Now, once again, I am not going to try and convince anyone that this is an absolute truth, but just from some simple observations I am beginning to think it may not be.

    For example. if you access the shop channel now and click on the Wii Ware button, you see the picture of the opera browser channel with a google image. Now it says on this window that new wii channels can be PURCHASED via this window. This leads me to believe that it is a possibilty, not a definite reality, that at the very least in the future that there may be a pricing scheme involved.

    Once again, it is quite possible that we may get it for free, as a sort of Christmas present if you will. However, at the same time, the Wii Ware channel appears to built to use wii points, so at the very least updates in the future will require points.

    i'd like to know why it's free only until july 2007. not only does this not make any sense, but it makes less sense than no sense. nintendo makes not only my head hurt, but the pain is even in my teeth right now.

    it's like saying a thing...not saying it for a little while...and then saying it again...

    it gives people time to try it out, then if they like it they will purchase it.

    they want money!

    also... if there happens to be a way for wii users to hack up the browser, nintendo wants to get paid for them to hack it up... smart move ^_^

    I believe Nintendo and Opera were quoted on Opera Press Release Site that Opera for Wii is free to dowload until June 2007 after that users will have to use Wii Points to download (not use) the browser Once you have downloaded it it can be used freely Just like Virtual Console Games

    Right, it's not a trial for those who download it before June 07....it's just downloaded. You download it once and that's it...if you download it after june, you hafta pay a one time fee around $10 or something.

    It was stated by Nintendo that Virtual Console games will be there exact original which means no online multiplayer. They hinted that some may but I doubt it. This is of course an exception to NEW games they realease on the VC and Indie Games by publishers.
