    YOu all know what pay to play is right? If not here's a quick explanation. Nintendo can't make online free forever... So, in a little while, Nintendo will have a system called PAY 2 PLAY! If you don't get the pay to play you can still do a bunch of on-line things. And every game that we have so far doesn't have anything to do with it. If you do get pay 2 play they said there will be a bunch of extra cool things to do online. I am hoping for a username, mic., and stats all around.
    So, once the pay to play thing comes out then maybe Smash bros will have an online update where the ppl with pay 2 play will be able to play ranked games. Maybe there will be the friends section, the anyone section, and the pay 2 play ranked section. And even a leader board for these people.
    What do you guys think? Is Smash bros brawl done? Or is this a possibility to make online rock!

    Thats actually not a bad idea that would make it really awsome especially the mic part that would also most likely make other people want to buy a wii cause i know that one reason people got turned off by the wii was the fact that you cant talk to another player....But how much do you think they would charge? Also do you think they would let you pay with the wii points card for those people who cant get a credit card? That would make alot more sense....

    Brawl won't have Pay to Play since nintendo confirmed that ALL games that will have pay to play will have a RED nintendo wifi logo ... all games that are COMPLETELY free wil lhave the normal blue one...

    in addition, i believe that the pay to play games will either involve downloadable content (which means normal online play is free but some things will cost) however seeing how nintendo is not impelmenting an external HDD it would be unlikel so more likely would be MMO's

    I still don't see why they can't have an update that makes it so that both pay 2 play users and normal wi-fi users could play brawl onling but the pay to play users get extra stuff like rankings and stuff

    because intendo announced that if there was pay to play it would have a spcificed logo ... if they just implemented it on a game with the Nomral wifi logo advertised they would into a lot of trouble.... people would start saying they got the game because of only free online gaming ... and how nintendo is lying all the time.... their stocks would go down ... some lawyer may find it possible to sue for compensation and lots of ppl will join in the act .... etc...

    I'm hoping for a SSBB Channel, kinda like the Mario Kart Channel with leaderboards and stuff. That'd be cool

    no.. that would be Partially free online, as you wont' have access to parts of the "online experience" ... those would have red logo's

    the normal ones are COMPLETELY free online which means you don't have the pay anything to gain the "full online experience"

    nintendo differentiated the two and thus it would not be possible now... unless they don't care about their reputation and lawsuits...

    I would have absolutely no problem with paying a few bucks a month to play smash online. It's the only game I can think of that I'd say that about (mario kart pending). BUT, online would have to be worth it. I don't want to pay and then ***** about it. It would have to be xboxlive-ish in quality.

    If Nintendo is holding out and planning on doing something like that, now is a good time to get into my wallet.

    I don't know... You could have it that the non pay to play users don't even see a new option... so that it doesn't even get in the way! I don't see how they could get sued for something like this... Y not have an exception?

    it would be impossible for the people who bought the game to not konw that there are parts of the online experience that they are missing.

    when nintendo announced wifi they said it's online would be completely free which is why later when they wanted to add pay to play they had to make an announcement conerning pay to play in addition to adding the clause that all the new games which needs pay to play has a separate logo which has to be be clear to the consumers that the game is not completely free.

    this means that because the the brawl game that we have has the blue logo indicating that the game is completely free online there is a guarentee to the consumer that they are also buying the "completely free online" experience. Thus if they were to implement Pay to play on this game it would cause problems.

    Once Nintendo gets their head in the game and fixes their online system big time, I'll be willing to pay for it. I wouldn't care much for a ranked system. I would prefer more options in the With Anyone game modes. Being able to see their usernames would be nice. And instead of it's random matchmaking, have a lobby with people hosting games so that you can join or host your own game.

    Unfortunatley, I don't see that happening in a LONG time. As far as pleasing their fans goes, Nintendo is the worst.

    Then they can make an announcement that from now on smash bros brawl will have the other logo and the old ones can get an update... People would be happy, not mad.... Dang selfish people if they get upset that other people can do extra things just for a bit more money....

    that would be kind of hard as well

    consider this case.... you buy a brand new car that has 200 horsepower.. however after you buy it the car company says that sorry ... rite now u will have to pay every month to use that full 200 horsepower otherwise you will only be able to use 160.

    since there are already millions of copies of SSBB sold, it would be inevitable for people to complain if that happened.. also Sakurai already said that there will be no downloadable content and therefore will not use the Pay to Play system.


    and on the case of pay to play, most likely in the future the games which require that will be MMO's, and or games with downloadable content.

    They woulden't be able to do that. Those who bought a special wi-fi but are unable to pay to use it would be pissed. Like myself. I bought one specially for brawl and if I would have to pay ontop of that I would be very upset.

    I disagree, I don't think Nintendo would do that to their customers.
