Well they would be stupid if they forced us to pay a usage fee considering games such as Monster Hunter Tri are free online experiences and the fact that many people who own a wii "aka" the budget console can't afford a monthly fee so I can't see too many people playing it online if Squeenix decides to charge for the online portion of the game Neutral
Any word on the usage of the USB Hard-drive Question wait is it possible we'll be able to download gamecube games or larger wiiware games from the wii shop Question

There isn't any details about that yet, so I don't know, but once something has been updated about this, I'll let you know.
