GDC 2008: Nintendo Announces Wii Pay & Play
Nintendo’s Takashi Aoyama announced today Wii Pay & Play, an expansion to their Wi-Fi service.
The concept seems just the way it sounds. They will start charging us for some services hoping that they can explore new concepts and channels.
Aoyama wanted to make clear that you can buy games that are entirely free when that is not the case. We don’t know if that means charging for multiplayer but it doesn’t sound to good to me. A new logo will be made to identify the Pay & Play service.
I don’t know how this is expected to work but until we hear more we can’t pass only kind of judgment.
