Before anybody flips out about the thing at the end of the fact sheet saying Battle of the Bands may mean an additional subscription, don’t worry. All that means is if you normally have to pay to play an online game (like for Xbox Live), then you would have to pay for that still. It does NOT mean you have to pay to play online if you have a Wii.
