    They have to spend $0.50 to register for the Nintendo Network.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    It's a shame to see kids drawn-and-2 quartered like this. It just makes no cents.

    Makes perfect sense. There are numerous on line services that use such a system for age verification. Much better than having a "tick this box if you're over 16/18/21/whatever age", which somehow most kids seem to get around...

    They said the Wii U would have microtransactions.

    No surprises here.

    Ah, the joys of being centuries old really show their worth sometimes.
