PS3 Claim Wrong, Nintendo Wii Online Confirmed As Free
There were many people who wound up confused after reading Sony's recent console comparison chart. After all, the chart stated that the Nintendo Wii online functionality will only be free for six months, which direclty contradicted reports from the Big N. Everybody can now breath a deep sigh of relief.
Gaming publication Total Video Games contacted a representative of Nintendo UK to clear this confounding matter up. A spokesman for the company confirmed that the Wii will indeed be free to play online, exactly like DS.
The aforementioned documentation from Sony was distributed during the recent Games Day in the States, in which Sony compared its PlayStation 3 against the other next generation consoles which will be on the market this Christmas.
The chart itself appears extremely misleading for the average consumer. Xbox 360 is described on the documentation as requiring the external HD-DVD drive for play, when in reality the device is optional.
So what was it then that caused Sony to state that the Wii’s online functionality will only be free for six months? Believe it or not, it must "mixed up" with the Opera Web Browser, which will be free for consumers for the initial six months.
Sony is pervert. They are always saying lies!
