Nintendo Announces Premium Wifi Content Plans

Nintendo has announced plans at the Games Developer Conference in San Francisco to extend its Wifi connection on the successful Wii console to include access to "pay and play" content. The Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Pay and Play system will require the user to buy points in order to access online components.

Games sold over the counter which make use of Pay and Play will have a red sticker, contrasting with the current blue logo for Wii Wifi games.

What do you think of this move? If the content is there to back it up, I guess it will be welcomed, but Nintendo's online offering has so far been disappointing compared to rival consoles.
