No Fee to Be Charged for Connecting to Wii U Network...
Rest assured that you won't be paying $60 a year for access to the Nintendo Network...
At Nintendoís annual shareholder meeting, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata announced that there will be no fee for Wii U owners to connect to the Nintendo Network.
He hopes that by not having a cost for the Nintendo Network that itíll increase software and hardware sales. Considering that having access to the full functionality of Xbox Live, Xbox customers have to pay $60 a year, having access to the Nintendo Network be free sweetens the deal for buying a Wii U.
However, Nintendo could consider emulating Sonyís model with PlayStation Plus membership. No PlayStation Network services are restricted for non-subscription PlayStation customers, but perks are provided for paying members.Intel i5 2500k (@4.7Ghz) + XFX Radeon 7970 3GB RAM! + 16GB DDR3 RAM (STEAM/Origin: Nealon_Greene)

So, Nintendo Network will have slow download speeds, excessive scheduled downtime, major security flaws and missing features?

Good for Nintendo going free online. Their online service I expect to be in amateur mode compared to Xbox Live. Curious if they will have a type of Party Chat, or Achievements as well.
LBP great review scores, pretty good sales, and they are moving on to some Kart racing, same goes for Turn10 and Forza. (Although not as big as a different type of jump as LBP going to Karts, yet still a change)
