    so does anyone know if this pay-to-playness will be implemented in all current and future wii games? is it selective?

    like will madden 08 require it or moh:h2 possibly?

    or is this mainly for first party games like brawl, strikers, etc...

    ?? :crazy: ??

    I'd be fine with a SMALL fee if, as others have said:

    1.) They include voice chat
    2.) They get rid of friend codes and use regular nicknames
    3.) They provide reliable, fast servers
    4.) There's a decent game selection

    Also, if I'm not mistaken, one of the FPSes out for Wii right now actually DOES use nicknames for online play. Maybe Medal of Honor?

    I actually think having a different nickname for each game might be better than XBox Live's system of having a system-wide nickname. That way you can kind of keep your gaming experiences separate.

    But I must say, I am a bit worried about the notion of pay-to-play PER GAME.

    I mean, on the 360, I'd have no problem, as Halo 3 is virtually the only game I'd pay for, so I'm sure it'd end up being considerably cheaper than paying for "system-wide" online access.

    If Wii has GREAT games with online support, it could be the same situation. But if not, I'm sure people will end up trying a bunch of mediocre games and getting pissed at having to pay for each of them separately.

    Oh man! On one hand, games would be great with voice chat. On the other, it would suck to have to pay for online. Also, the pay-to-play service would only be good with certain games. For example, MOH:H2 would be a great game with voice chat. However, I don't think the servers will be better just because we will have to pay. If you have a bad internet connection, that's your problem, and paying isn't going to make a difference.

    Most likely it will be for subscription MMO style games and not your regular run of the mill online multiplayer game.

    I think this is one of Nintendo's worst moves ever and they should really take time to think about the impact this is gonna have on there game sales so yeah

    I would definitely pay a monthly fee to play a really good MMORPG on the Wii.

    with the immense amounts of money nintendo is making, you'd think they'd have better online service, like no friend codes. It's not like they can't afford to do better. Honestly, if Friend Codes dissapeared, I wouldn't mind all the other problems with wii online though (except for that annoying wii speak thing; why cant we have a normal headset!).
