    Wii Friend Code: $post[field5]

    The Future of Wii Online...Failure?

    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.

    well, there is friend codes, but the code is the same for every game (except for pokemon, I think)

    SSBB is going to be online. The online activity hasn't gotten really kickstarted yet.

    Ok well we don't want friend codes. This whole thing is silly. We need user names! Just like every other normal easy to use lobby with gaming. When you say Japan has "online" already, do you mean online gaming? If so, how is it configured?

    The GCN actually had just ONE online game. Phantasy Star Online 1&2. I think it was an MMO, but I never played it.

    BRING ON THE MMOs! hehe

    I've never really read about or played a console MMO

    I think the reason Nintendo is using friend codes is so that people can choose their own username and not have the problem of it already being taken.

    I don't particularly like friend codes, but I like how I can always change my name for my games.

    I agree

    I completely agree with what you are saying.

    the Wii needs Online "Play" Chat and Mii's are nothing.

    Xbox 360 Has
    Call of Duty 3
    Halo 3
    Saints Row
    Gears of War

    Online
    All really great games.

    And can anyone link me to some posts about online play?

    I agree on the part that they need online play very soon. I am going to give them until early or middle March then they should really get it going by then.

    As far as the friend codes I think if they have you use one code for all the games then that would be more organized and enjoyable but even if they did it the DS way ( code for each game) I would still play but just not enjoy it as much.

    Usernames suck!

    If we went by usernames I would be Brandon23342352534625 instead of just "Brandon" to my friends...
    It takes about 30 seconds to type a friend code in? Thats the best way.

    Ok I get why you like friends codes but I'm not down with typing in a friend code just to play an online game. I want a lobby, no crap.
