Wii U’s Online Service Doesn’t Require A Subscription

Posted in Nerd News by slackerandtheman on June 29th, 2012

Nintendo's going to be upping its online gaming presence with the Wii U, and now it's confirmed that you won't be required to pay extra for those features, like you would with Xbox Live Gold. Company president Satoru Iwata confirmed the detail at Nintendo's annual shareholder's meeting, as reported by Andriasang.

Iwata didn't rule out the possibility of a paid service that allows users on other, non-Wii U devices to connect to the Nintendo Network. He also made it clear that a paid subscription model isn't right for the upcoming console, arguing that freely available online features will encourage hardware and software sales. That said, seeing as we're still not really sure of how the Wii U's online features will operate, it's probably best to just relax and wait for more details to be revealed.

Black Friday X-Box Live Sale

Posted in Nerd News by slackerandtheman on November 25th, 2011

If you didn't brave the madness of brick and mortar Black Friday sales today, you can still get some awesome deals on video games on X-Box Live. But don't delay, these prices are only good for today. The crown jewel of this post Thanksgiving sale is Marvel Vs Capcom 2, which is going for just 320 MS Points, or a little less than four dollars if you fudge the math a bit. At a 73 percent discount, that's pretty good -- especially since an actual hard copy of the game is damn near impossible to find.
