Wii U Online will be free

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has said that the online play subscription model so used by Xbox 360 and somewhat by PS3 will not be coming to the Wii U console. A free system is expected to increase the user utilization more-so than a subscription model would allow. By not integrating Facebook or Twitter into its “Miiverse”, it seems Nintendo is attempting to build upon its own social network as well. Well see if they stick to their guns this holiday season.
