Wii has Free Online Too
When asked about the pricing model for online use of the Wii, Fils-Aime commented that: â€œWe will offer online-enabled games that the consumers will not have to pay a subscription fee for. They’ll be able to enjoy that right out of the box. The Wii console is going to be Wi-Fi enabled, so essentially, you’ll be able to plug it in and go. It won’t have hidden fees or costs.â€

Wait a sec! That’s not possible, is it? You can’t offer online play for free, can you? Software would be too expensive, or the service wouldn’t really be that good. Or something. Something bad. Something that makes it not possible, even though companies have been doing it for years.
Oh wait, yeah, right. I forgot. This is Nintendo. Nintendo can do it, but Sony can’t. Yeah, I forgot about that.
