Just like how Sony charges you for its Network services. I doubt it is charging you for you to actually be online.Thrasher said:It's too expensive for the system and accessories. Plus, they're going to charge for online.
Flik said:Also someone's going to invent a battery pack for it so you can have more than 3-5 hours. Probably Nintendo themselves. They aren't stupid. They'll make sure all accessories cost you so that they make even more bank.

I came into the conference pretty damn hyped. I was almost locked in to buying one. Now? I'm not even mad, I'm just depressed. It feels like two completely different companies handled the reveal trailer and the trainwreck last night. The reveal trailer made a very clear choice to not show any kind of motion controls or touch screen stuff, trying to make it look like Nintendo's most "normal" console since the Gamecube. Then last night they LEAD OFF with motion control and "HD Rumble." The fact that they thought it was a strong point to start with shows how much of a focus it'll be in this system, and that sounds like something I just don't want any part of. I don't know about you, but I don't want to ever use a singular Joycon. There is absolutely no way that thing is comfortable for anyone over the age of 14 to use. I either want to use the tablet as a whole or use the Pro controller, preferably the Pro controller. I honestly feel like this might be an even bigger misstep than Microsoft's original Xbox One reveal. At least Microsoft had a reason to be super cocky considering how much the 360 dominated the previous generation. For Nintendo this seemed like a legitimate chance for them to recover from the dumpster fire that was the Wii U, but instead they double down on far too many of the same core components that doomed the Wii U from the beginning. Some people are complaining about the power, or lack thereof, but that isn't really the issue. Nintendo hasn't been in the business of trying to compete with the other consoles on a power level since the SNES and hasn't really cared about third party support since then either. Nintendo is in the business of making a day 1 profitable console that is good for playing Nintendo games on, and if any other third parties climb aboard, great. The issue is all the stupid gimmicks. IT DISCONNECTS FROM YOUR TV AND WORKS ON THE GO, that's the only freakin gimmick it needed. I don't need to play Rock Paper Scissors with something the size of two bite sized candy bars. I don't need improved rumble and I sure as hell don't need an added emphasis on motion controls. It's incredible how far Nintendo has fallen when it comes to controller design from the Wavebird, one of the greatest of all time. Nintendo needs to give up on attempting to recreate the Wii. The casual players are gone! They've moved on to phones and they're NEVER coming back! Concentrate on people who actually want to buy your products. We're not in a world where "well it's Nintendo" is enough on it's own to get people's money, and we haven't been in a long time. The sooner Nintendo realizes this the better.
If you didn't play Twilight Princess on the Gamecube, get it for the WiiU.Damaramu said:I just want to play Mario and Zelda on a normal system with a normal controller like I could back in the day. But they insist on gimmicky bullshit.
Damaramu said:So is it true that the free games will only be available the month they are free and then you have to pay to use it past that month? If so that's shitty. Nintendo can't get out of their own way with this silly bullshit.
