Xbox does it with Xbox live, playstation does it on PS4 with playstation plus, but nintendo has yet to do it. But will they? Since Nintendo wifi launch in 2006, until it was renamed Nintendo network in 2012, It has always been free if you wanna play online, but considering current conditions, it may or may not happen. If it does happen, many Nintendo buyers may be skeptical about it depending how is being presented to us. It may discourage buying the system, with the current reputation of what is going on that is bad. But if they did have it, would you pay anyway? It would mean extra money for them to do who knows what, but if so i hope they put it to good use. To be honest, xbox live gold and playstation plus would be better of if online multiplayer wasn't part of the deal. If it was just for free game trials, discounts and online cloud storage for save and exclusive premium whatever, it probably would be okay by me, one huge reason why i didn't think of buying a xbox was cause of that reason, there is more but is off topic. While PS + started before PS4 was released, i didn't understand why specificly that was tied to requirement for online play. One thing i do hope is this doesn't happen to nintendo, but if it does, i hope their deal or offerings are reasonable.
