Nintendo charges $0.50 to Register A Minor on the Nintendo Network

Nintendo has taken a rather innovative measure to ensure the safety of minors on the Nintendo Network. (Wii U)

That's... interesting...
And seems very easy to bypass. Just lie about your ages. Instant Free pass!

Still kind of strange....

Cheap way of making money or more adult accounts.

Think it through Nintendo.

Whats stopping you from making an adult account? Nothing! Just lie about your birth date.

I wouldn't call that innovative. More strange. I can see why they have done it however between free adult account and a 50cent child account people are just more likely to say they are an adult

Charging its key demographic?. Brilliant.

Maybe if Xbox had done the same, the CoD online community might have been a much more enjoyable and much less high pitched cursing environment.

Nope they would have just lied about their age.
