Many parents will say no just because they don't want to give out their credit card info, not because they don't want their kids going online.

As low as the charge is, this is such a cheap tactic (no pun intended) for a bit of extra money. They're just interested in maximum profit and little else, which is kinda saddening.

At least their dev teams are still interested in making quality products, they're just usually given tiny budgets.

*sigh*

I think its good that they are at least trying to make sure that parents are aware of their children's online activities.


Question: Is user creation lockable by parental controls? Is it one of the default settings when you activate parental controls?

Stealing pocket change from the kiddies. How low can nintendo go...


They aren't stealing anything from kids. You obviously don't understand the point.

The point is, the kid HAS to ask their parents for the card so the parents will know that they're allowing their kids to play games online with strangers. If the parent decide they don't want that, then they don't pay the 50 cents.


Every company i know changes $1 to verify a card and then cancels the translation. Nintendo is charging $0.50 per a pop. If 2 million kids sign up, they get 1 million dollars. Obviously they want to make up for their weak fiscal year so far.

I'm talking about Nintendo's own development divisions. The people who brought us the Mario Galaxy games, Skyward Sword etc.

I think Nintendo did it to obviously for the parents to follow their kids activities and yes making money off it is probably another reason I wouldn't doubt that.

There are better ways to do it, but it's good enough if you don't expect that level of competence.

I'm guessing users without credit cards just won't care and use only one account?

(Edit: Or older accounts, I'm not sure how it works yet...)
