So downloadable content is confirmed?? I guess I'm late on the news although I knew about this service. And this article must have been written in Australia, because they said that MoHH2 did not have any online play.
Uhh, I'm so anti-reading right now...sooooo tired.
From what I understand Nintendo is trying to pull somewhat of an XBL. My opinion is that they haven't proven thereselves worthy of online play yet. Most of the experiences we have online with Wii are horrible compared to the other two systems.
Nintendo already has a hefty bank account. Aren't they the 3rd wealthiest company in Japan?? I think they should've given their users more content before taking a dive like this. From what I know the Gamecube had pay to play, didn't it? That didn't go so well, especially with the lack of good games online. The Wii definitely is lacking in great software. Of course Ninty wouldn't let one of their consoles go without a AAA title from Nintendo team. But what do third party have to show?
On another note..BTW, I have never complained about this before..Where do they expect us to fit all those Wii Ware titles, plus future VC games? Of course Reggie simply said that users can delete titles off of their Wii menu and easily download them when they decide to play. But doesn't that seem a little too drowning?
Idk, I have losing faith in my beloved company. I need some bad ass games and I'm just not seeing them. Sure, No More Heroes is cool but I'm not going to go out and spend $50 on a game that will look horrible on my tv. God, I feel like a graphics whore saying that. But it's certainly true.
NOOO DON'T MAKE US PAY!!!!!!!!!!
give us good online with no pay. its as simple as that.
There's a damn good reason why Nintendo WFC is free; It sucks. Friend Codes, lack of voice chat, and so many other things that make it's online bad is why it's free. So now they're going to start charging for online games? They had better start putting out for online features, or frankly a lot of players aren't going to pay for it. I know I wouldn't.
but isn't sony free and still pretty good?
Fair at best, but then again, they don't make the players exchange codes to play online with each other :O
The reason why Xbox Live charges people a monthly fee is because it's the best online capabilities of the three consoles. If the Wii starts charging, then they had better get better online.
how does charging make it the best, we don't know for sure if they are actually using the money for their online or if they're charging just get money for themselves.
Still researching this one! Sounds good but I need more details.... hopefully I'll get more data later...
...What? That doesn't even make sense. Charging money doesn't make it the best, the features make it the best. It's logical that they can charge money, though, because they provide such an enjoyable experience online. I've only said it 3 times now.
You really must admit.
Nintendo knows how to make money.
*Sigh* I guess so. You just know that the 60% of the younger Wii audience is going to convince their parents to pay for the online, no matter how garbage it is. And if Nintendo is smart enough to play off of that possibility, nay, inevitability, then they must be pretty damn smart. :sick:
no wat your saying is "it has to be payed for so it can be good"
it doesn't have to cost money to be good.
:wtf: That isn't what I'm saying at all. I'm saying that it's reasonable to pay for Xbox Live because it's the definitive online experience. What you're saying is that if it's being paid for, it's good. They're two completely different things.
yea but if it's good does not mean it has to be charged for, nintendo can make good online and still make the money for it from the extra money they rack up from selling games and the money they get from VC downloads.
I never said it has to be charged for if it's good, I said that it is reasonable
for online to be charged for it it's very good online. I never said it had to be.
if you people actually read the artical you would see that it has been stressed that not all games will use this new service.
also nintendo online is not bad. sure there are friendcodes, but atleast we still have random matches. you cant say the current online is bad because there is no voice chat. i guarantee that the wii will have voicechat.
the only thing that seperates the wii online and XBL is the modes online, downloadable content and friend codes. the first to will most likely change in nintendo's favour with this new service.
they should start using something like the gamertag instead of these codes
Nintendo is making the right move in my mind. Thing is, XBL has such rich and cool content because you pay for it. Your money goes towards building a better online community, PERIOD!! If you can play games for free online, what incentive do developers have to create new downloadable content if they will not get paid for it? It's like saying, why do they have to charge for VC games? Because it's not free for them. Try playing Madden 08 online via Wii then Madden 08 via XBL.... notice the HUGE difference? That's the difference between free and paying. We will not get headsets because headsets are not free to make. Why would they go through ALL of the hassle of creating voice chat games just so people can use it for free. It costs money to create better gaming plateau's for you gamers. You wanted headsets, they are now coming, you wanted downloadable content, they are now coming, you wanted no friend codes, they are coming. Pay to play will delete the friend codes because the free games will use them as a boost for you to go with Pay and Play. Wii's online revolution is coming but it will not be free and it can't be :yesnod: .
Number one Sony allows voice chat on its free online service. Also it is in no way a fact that this new service will eliminate friend codes or provide us with voice chat.
