We knew before that MHG and MH3 won't have free online, but they have now officially disclosed the pricing for MHG's online in Japan.

- There will be a 14 day free online trial campaign
- For ongoing online play, players will have to purchase Hunting Tickets
- 30 days ticket = 800 Wii points, 60 days ticket = 1500 Wii points, 90 days ticket = 2000 Wii points

This is for Monster Hunter G, but I think the rates will probably be the same for MH3 as well. Thoughts?

I am not sure about what the rest of you think, but I would not pay for MH online fees.


edit: I will play MH3 Portable via adhoc when it comes though :)

So I guess this is how Nintendo will handle pay-for-online. Karaoke Joysound Wii also had the ticket system.

I think it's a good system given the lack of Xbox Live or PSN-like system in place. I recently registered with KDDI to play Biohazard Outbreak and Outbreak File 2 online in Japan, but I wish I didn't have to use my credit card to do so.

Hopefully though, one ticket buys into both games and any future Capcom online games.

It's not a persistent online experience, and you're not getting Live like service, any amount is too much.

Also, I was under the impression the insane MH popularity was due to the whole social aspect of all being in the same room, seems like a bad game to charge for online because people can just play it on PSP.

Are you honestly surprised or just ignorant of the way Monster Hunter has handled online in the past?

Japanese Monster Hunter players are used to it at this point, but I do wonder if they'll charge if the game is localized. Might be a major turnoff for Western gamers unfamiliar with the series.

It depends whether they want to send the game to its death in the West, or if they prefer to risk offending Japanese consumers.

SOE "Free Realms" will have a free option and a monthly fee option so I'm sure if Capcom wanted they could've charged monthly fees on PSN too.

There aren't any major MMOs on their yet, when Rapture's out, it'll have online fees.

Also, even though the Agency isn't going to be pay monthly any more, they were considering it.

I stand corrected, then. Capcom has a similar model for Monster Hunter Frontier (PC), free and pay, so I suppose it could have floated on PSN.

it is not like sony has had people beating down their doors to put games that are usually pay to play on the system.

On one hand, the utterly featureless online functionality of the Wii makes this seem ridiculous. But at the same time, with the game's popularity in Japan, I would probably do the same thing if I were Capcom.

it's still free , you just pay for your horse armor and power up and other stuff ( like Home ) , I think Sony want PSN to be free , I guess that why SE didn't port FFXI to PS3 and why NCsoft just forget about their PS3 game .

Thoughts?

Oh man I'm getting back flashbacks to the time I played an MMO here. Seriously though a year would costs me $80. They have to charge for this to make a profit, this is a business afterall. My question is this; how good is the service? The stability of the servers, keeping content following, etc. etc. I hope we don't get fees like this in the US but we going to if we want to kick some wyvern ass together.
