For those of you who own Wiis and have them connected to the internet, you'll find a little notice in your inbox stating that shortly after the next ten days Nintendo will be making you pay for the purchase of the Opera browser on the Wii.
It's only 500 wii pts for the browser. Not a big deal.
Yeah but you might as well get it free while you can
Why charge on Wii?
Is 500 points, ya know in USD?
500$ :D j/k
2000 point for $20.00 USD if I remember correctly.
will this effect online games? granted theres only one so far.
its just the opera browser am lucky i downloaded it before the charging crap
They must first reach the quality of Live and then ask for money.
Does Live have an internet browser at all?
Opera also makes browsers for other devices, it has nothing to do with nintendo's online services. Opera is charging money for it not Nintendo.
As far as I know, Live does not have an internet browser. Nintendo made it known that they will start charging for this browser in June but it is free for now. Why the cost? Probably because the browser was developed by Opera and not Nintendo. Granted, the PC Opera browser is free but development of the Wii version took additional manpower and had immediate project deadlines.
