I am amazed that there are people defending this.

We should make a verbal agreement to only kiss each other.

Why? It's 50 cents and we HAVE companies that charge fot use of their services online, it's called Microsoft and the Xbox 360.

It isn't the same thing, though. You know that you have to buy Xbox live and they charge the same price to everyone. This just seems really shady if it doesn't say this on the box anywhere.

Sorry but I'm not underaged.

Couple that with the fact that this keeps brats off, and is only 50 cents?

Why wouldn't anyone be ok with this?

GameFAQS users are far too sensitive.

They aren't charging 50 cents to use the Wii U online service. They're adding a completely unnecessary charge onto minors creating an account under the guise of 'ensuring parental consent' when really it's just an extra stream of revenue.

Do you think the money they get from this will be used to improve the online service or just to improve their profits for the year?

But it really is the same to an extent. Besides the only people that know you have to buy XBL these days are people that did the research or have bought a 360 before and knows. I'm pretty sure XBL isn't really advertised as a paid service, I could be wrong about that but I have not had a new 360 since this thing launched.

But let's be really generous with this, say you have 2 kids and they want their own account but are two you, that's like a dollar for a one time activation. A dollar, are we going to really trip over a dollar? I think the only issue people would have is if it was the Duggers with their 500 children.

Credit card fraud and hacking. For 50 cents, it's more trouble than it's worth.

No, it's not the money itself. But rather, the principal of the thing.
