Which brings me to this question: Are we in danger of getting this kind of garbage on the Wii U?

Part of me thinks that Nintendo is one of the last really "for the consumer" videogame companies left. But sometimes I wonder if the only reason that they don't have paid online and ads yet is because they're just a little behind the curve in online functionality.

This is totally fine and acceptable, but a dollar to get a Wii U VC game on top of the Wii VC you already have is an unforgivable cash grab.

Gaming is like a pair of boobs - Sony and Microsoft fight over whos boobs look more realistic, while Nintendo is about having fun with them - Walkiethrougie

The ads are not intrusive, so it's not a big deal imo

Always possible. MS makes a nice chunk of change on those ads, and Nintendo is in very bad financial shape right now, the worst theyve been since the early 80s. Lots of articles about it, so it really wouldnt surprise me as long as it doesnt get out of hand.

In fact didnt they confirm this during Nintendo Direct? Iwata said something about companies being in Miiverse, they have a green check, so I would imagine we'll see ads popping up above their little corporate heads.

Instead, Nintendo rips you off with overpriced, outdated hardware.

Are you kidding me? The last system update shrank the "play game on disc" box to a tiny bug in the upper corner so that the main part of the first screen can be used by advertising. Jesus Christ, I was so mad when that happened. I paid FIFTY F***ING BUCKS FOR XBOX LIVE, and they want to make more money by selling off my screen for ad space?
