After reading an article on IGN about what they think the wii online play will be, i called nintendo. I asked him if it will be a good/strong online play, he said if it has ( i forgot what it was ) connection, then it should be, i asked about lagging, and he said there is no online game demo out yet except pokemon on ign ( ign said it lagged), he told me that pokemon isnt even a finished game and is still being worked on. SO it wasent the final production of pokemon or not online play. He said online play should be good and come out this year ( 4th quarter around). I asked about SSBB and he said it hasent been confirmed about online play. I think it will be though... SO i am not too worried about online play. I mean, i have my concerns but nintendo knows it has to be good, people are expecting a lot. Even on the ign article they made good points that nintendo is aware about online, they have the news channel, forecast channel, which is good. SO to me, nintendo is highly aware that they need a good online play.
