    Just reminding everyone if you havn't got the new browser today is the last day to do it for free on the wii, tomorrow it will cost money think bout 500 points so get it for free even if you dont need it!

    opera is a free browser, the fact that they will start chargin for it just shows a bit of over excessive customer milking, aka greed. I wouldnt be suprised if they charged for the free browser IF they were taking a loss on their consoles, but the fact is nintendo used old tech and cheap hardware in order to make money perconsole compared to their counterparts who use the top of the line hardware and take the loss from it too.

    I been saying it for awhile, ninty has been starting to go down the wrong path. RIP old nintendo.

    Bandwidth on the other hand isn't cheap. Be glad you don't have to have a subscription to even see what is available to download.

    Well lets see, microsoft can do it, sony can do it.. they both take huge losses on their systems. The Wii actually already makes a lot of money and they charge?

    No you see its not about bandwidth, which btw is a lot cheaper than it used to be, its about the software. Its like taking a free resource and turning around and charging for it. I garantee you nintendo pays a one time price for unlimited bandwidth services. They already have that covered.

    Nice excuse though.

    I don't know what flavor of ganja you smoked for dinner, but Microsoft makes loads of money of Xbox Live.

    And clearly nothing is working for Sony at the moment.

    i agree with shiftfallout
    people try to tag microsoft as "greedy" yet nintendo will be charging for something that you can get elsewhere free, and its a fact you can get it for free because if you have online on your wii, then you must have a computer thats hooked up the the internet

    If Nintendo are going to charge money for something they are able to provide for free, then it would seem they are greedy.

    yeah, it is free for windows, but it was developed for the wii's firmware, so it's not the exact same software as the one you get on windows. Somebody had to pay to make the changes. And who really needs it anyway? you all have pcs if you've got an internet connection, so who cares? It's nothing new from Nintendo either, they've always come on up little schemes to make more money, and they always will. For as long as I can remember they have been releasing tiny little useless crap that you still needed to buy if you wanted to do certain things, but it didn't have to be that way. Milking has always been a strong mentality at Nintendo, so why be surprised and angry?

    And nobody pays one time prices for unlimited bandwith, it is expensive.
