Well, with the recent news that Wii's online service, WiiConnect24, will be free, an idea popped into my head: Could all Wii games that have multiplayer be played online?
Here's what Reginald Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America's new president and chief operating officer, said when asked by USAToday the following:
Also, look at the WarpPipe Project, which allowed many Gamecube games that only had split-screen and/or LAN play (like Mario Kart: Double Dash) to be played online.Q: You're not pursuing a [online gaming] subscription model?
A: We view online gaming as essentially an enhanced way to enjoy the gaming experience and drive more sales of hardware and software.
I think online play in every Wii multiplayer game would be an outstanding step forward and it probably woudn't be that hard to do.
Who agrees or disagrees with me?
