http://blog.wired.com/games/2008/02/nintendo-to-beg.html This link will take you to an article telling you about their new pay to play system. This means that some games will now cost money to play online. To pay you will use wii points of course. I would be excited about this other than it means some of the games we play in the future will cost us money to play online and well thats one reason i bought the wii to play games online for free because i dont do it that often so i dont want to pay when i do. On the other hand this might introduce downloadable content which would be really nice.
