Good news coming from an interview by USAToday's Byron Acohido and Nintendo of America's new president and COO Reggie Fils-Aime. When asked about the online strategy for the upcoming Wii console, Fils-Aime answered, "We will offer online-enabled games that the consumers will not have to pay a subscription fee for.
