At the Game Developers Conference, Nintendo spokesman Takashi Aoyama revealed that there are plans to begin charging for online play and downloadable (add-on) content.
Gamers will use the familiar Wii Points to pay for play and, from what I can surmise, it seems the charges will be per game, not a blanket online charge as is the case with Xbox Live.
I could see them launching this in a week when Super Smash Bros. Brawl debuts. As if they're not making enough money.
I wonder what Reggie has to say about this.
