First off, let us all remember the Gamecube era. It NEVER went online. Blugh. Well Wii has gotten online but not the way every one wants. The Wii should have come out with online play ready to go just like XBOX 360 and PS3 did. But enough of that, what's done is done.
My point? What is going to happen to the future of the Wii Online? Is it going to become extinct like the Gamecube online (which never actually started)? I know about the "Friend Codes" with the Nintendo DS (I had one) and it was totally annoying and a nuisance to use. Do we OFFICIALLY know what Nintendo is going to do when the "supposedly" release online gaming? Are we going to have to type in thousands of numbers for one person to connect with them? Or is it going to be user friends and logical where we all meet in a lobby and connect (just like yahoo games)? Because honestly, if it's the DS way, I'm out.
