    Longer than I would've wanted, but at least we have some dates. I'm really looking forward to these to channels - and everyone else should be to (if for no other reason, then that they will start moving onto 'cooler' things when they're done :))

    Once again, i0n, great find and thanks for the information :thumbsup:

    The Opera internet browser will not be free. It was announced it would be free until some time in july where it will cost wii points to purchase after this. I dont think it will take very long for them to get it up.

    Wow, wish I would have know before I waited 14 hours in he cold. Im cool with somethin like $10 a year but if it's more then that then I'll be sellin my Wii. Being able to Browse the web on my TV instead of my comp was a huge selling point for me. I love my Wii so far, but they need to add features not take them away.

    LOL there will be a ONE TIME FEE for you t purchase the browser, geeez. Do you pay 10 bucks a yr for each VC game? Again until June of 2007 anyone purchasing a wii will get the browser for free. After that there will be a one time fee to purchase the browser. Where do you guys come up with this stuff. Do you just make it up as you go?

    He speaketh thy truth. There will only be a ONE TIME FEE for buying the Opera Browser. (unless you happen to get it before they charge points for it, in that case it will be FREE) It's not like Nintendo will charge you monthly for browsing the internet on YOUR own wireless/wired internet connection.:thumbsup:

    That's why I hate asking questions on these boards sometimes. I've been tempted to finish all of my questions with.. "P.S. : If you're not sure about the answer, don't just guess and post it as if it were fact."

    If that was a rule, then the world would be a less confusing place.
