    I don't think there is any news released on it yet, just that it's been announced, and games that will have the pay to play feature will have a green(? correct me if I'm wrong) wifi logo on the case instead of a blue one.

    red or orange, all depends on what level of color-blindness you are.

    I am against the pay to play. i think it is just another way for nintendo to make more money.
    After you spend all that money buying expensive games and consoles, you have to pay even more to play online. i think They just want to nickel and dime us.

    Anyone have a different opion?

    I would hope nintendo would improve their internet if they want that money. I dont think Nintendo is that cheap that they charge for it and then dont do anything to the internet, but ive seen weirdder things

    Details of this have been very scarce.
    Give it a month or so for more details to trickle out.

    My god not Again.. over and over and over I have to point this out :lol: :lol:

    They have released no such information that they will charge a fee for future online service! That is nothing but speculation.

    The pay to play has only been mentioned as a fee for "enhanced and extra content" to the already free online service.

    Look for yourself at what Nintendo Reps have said not the people interpreting what they have said.

    So many people have taken what Nintendo has said and streched it to mean we are getting rid of Friends codes, or they are making a "Nintendo Live" service for online. Nothing of that sort has ever been said. All that has been said is they are charging for these additional services and we know that DLC/Voice Chat is comming so obviously they are probably counting some of this as Pay to Play and who knows what else.

    When Rock Band comes to the Wii here in a few months it will be a Pay to Play game because you will have to pay to download extra songs, not to get online itself! This is also why they have said P2P is on a game to game basis, because obviously not all games will have features like DLC/Voice.

    Its pretty obvious, but apparently Nintendo isn't taking any chances making the new "casual gamers" upset and misleading them. They are use to everything being free on the online games so far, so Nintendo is willing to do this "new logo" just so they don't get complaints about unexpected charges.

    Funny thing is in the end they ended up freaking out more people than helping anything. :lol: :lol:

    Just rember to look it up and read it for yourself people. Don't take anything said as true without atleast some proof to back it up.
