    This better be the tiny tiny hint that Animal Crossing Wii will be an MMO-like game.

    Um...what? If they start charging us to play online, we better get something better than these bull**** friend codes.

    I hate paying to play online. So I'll avoid the red WiFi logo...

    Exactly what I thought!
    Since this is a per-game thing, I believe this will be needed only for games that are essentially online, like MMOs..

    I think announcing this also has a lot to do with Mario Kart for the Wii as well, think about it, after how well Brawl is going to do, they're not going to let an opportunity like this pass them.

    Nintendo are turning into tards.
    I refuse to offer them my support if the prices are high.

    I may have to say farewell to my wii

    I'm excited for the idea of MMO type Animal Crossing. Who wants to join me in Temper Town?

    I think it will be for MMOs, afterall they require a LOT of money with all those server expenses, and so it will be only for a few games.

    I think he wanted to clarify that when you see the WiFi logo that doesn't mean it's automatically free (to avoid something like this "OMG THIS GAME HAZ LOGO I DUN WANTA PAY") even when you would have to pay it (like MMOs) [​IMG]

    Ones that exists
    I'm going to throw my wii out of my window
    They have already collected enough money on wii sales to pay off wii server
    They earn like 50Euro for every wii sold right

    Journalism, eh? Seems to have sparked off the fanboys anyway [​IMG]

    Quiet note: If you're paying for usenet, your arguments don't seem to hold up, you pay (if it's confirmed) for a better multiplayer system the same way you pay for faster illegal downloads.

    If Nintendo plan to charge for any kind of online system then they better get their arse in gear. Their current system is LAUGHABLY bad and would have been acceptable 5 years ago or so.

    I'm not sure they can 1-up Xbox Live, which is exactly what they're going to be up against. And with the current cost of Virtual Console games I can't see Nintendo's pay-to-play online coming cheap...
