Wi-fi: Pay and Play Introduced

Hopefully by now many of you are aware of what Nintendo introduced at GDC this past February. If not, hang on to your pants (and wallet), as wi-fi will no longer be an ultimately free service. Nintendo will be starting their first “Pay and Play” online project with Sega’s upcoming “Samba de Amigo“, a maraca dancing game that resembles something like “Dance Revolution”… with your hands. As fun as the trailer seems for this game, it will also be the first to implement a “pay to play” service. What you will need to pay for is still unclear, but I can reassure you that Wi-fi will no longer be the free service we all had fun with. Games that will support the “Pay to Play” service will contain the traditional “Wi-fi” logo (in red) along with the words “pay-to-play” underneath. Purchasing whatever service is provided by “pay and play” is still a mystery, but you will be using Wii Points respectively.
