Welcome to next-generation online services: Wii Ware to have pay DLC


Further proof that the Wii is truly a next-gen system: Wii Ware will bring the nightmare of for-pay downloadable content to Wii games. Mojipittan, which we were just being all positive about, will be the first downloadable game to include (or, well, exclude until you pay for it) extra downloadables, including stages and items. Why include the stages you've made when you can sell them later?

From there, it's only a matter of time before the slippery slope delivers us straight into unfinished games with content held back for more money, "premium" Mii parts and Wii Menu colors. Welcome to the future! Hope you brought money.
