Nintendo to charge money for online gaming?

Posted on Tuesday, May 11 2010 @ 00:30:34 CEST by

Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto revealed Nintendo may introduce a paid subscription model for online gaming, but it's unknown whether Miyamoto was talking about the Wii and DS or about something new.
Online-compatible Wii and DS titles are currently free to play using Nintendo’s Wi-Fi Connection service, but in a recent interview Miyamoto suggested this could change.

“… Probably the other thing that we are desperate to realise is the core [online] business structure,” Nintendo’s Entertainment Analysis and Development boss told us. “Do we need to demand customers pay monthly fees to enjoy online activities? Or give an online subscription that is free of charge, but then offer something extra for people that pay, so that they get some extra value? With these core business strategies I think we are less active than we should be.”
