    WiiWare service launched today on Japan and people who downloaded the game Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life As A King received a message saying that the game will require additional points for additional data or services. The message came with the red symbol Nintendo talked about.

    Jeux-France reports that the game will charge for DLC. Looks like the game will let the player download new buildings and characters for prices between 100 and 300 yen (1 to 3 dollars I think).

    Yeah, 100 yen is equal to 99 cents in the US, or 50p in the UK.

    If i remember correctly, the rate for yen to dollars is like 115 yen for 1 dollar. I'm not sure though cause this might be out of date.

    The rates I posted are accurate as of when I posted it ... check with xe.com ... it does live updates of currency exchange rates.

    If Pay-to-Play is just for stuff like DLC, instead of actually playing online, that's cool with me. 50p for extra content doesn't sound so bad, provided it's a fair amount and they don't abuse DLC.

    It is just DLC, just like some 360 and some PS3 games have had already ... I think Pay-to-Play is going to be mis-interpreted by many ... they will think it is a subscription service, as opposed to just buying extra content.

    6 of one, half a dozen of the other ... probably.

    The first few will be unlocks, I reckon ... then, the real new content will emerge.

    It's like the weekly Prof. Layton 'downloads' ... all that is happening is another locked puzzle, already in the game, is being opened for use.
