Why attach a video that has nothing to do with the title? Anyway, I listened to the actual voice chat, and I have one thing to say about charging online:

NO.

In its current condition it would be foolish for Nintendo to charge for online usage.

However if Nintendo's online service were ever to come on par with XBL, PSN and their third party support was to get better, not charging would be a strong point for them.

I agree, and I applaud Nintendo for not charging online.

It would kill the Wii U if they did. The online service isn't their just yet to start charging for it and nor is the console sales. Just maybe tbe next generation but not this one

I'm gonna take it up a notch and say "HELL NO".

I like having the Wii U, but aside from using Miiverse and occasionally Nintendo TVii, it's just not worth it to pay for online. I do most of my online gaming on PSN, PC and Live, and my Nintendo gaming is more for single player exclusives.

I really don't get it. It's not actually a good thing that Sony charges to play online now. The fact it's bad is offset by the fact that PS+ is an amazing value to begin with, but it's still sucks for many.

Will it improve the service? Maybe. But I've seen PSN improve dramatically over this entire generation. Day 1 was drastically different than it is today.

These are the kinds of things we should be saying no to, not accepting as the norm. The fact so many people accepted it as the norm this gen from MS is why Sony fans have to pay now.

In case people haven't noticed, voicing our discontent in harmony does seem to have an effect on what these companies are offering us.

But damn Sony for making PS+ so attractive I would have it regardless of this requirement. How can I rail against something I already have paid in full for 2 years?

If it takes paying for better online service with Nintendo, I guess so.
