There has been alot of talk about the wii online and a few large issues, well ONE..............friend codes. We've seen them before on the ds and that isn't stopping it from becoming a massive success.
Alot of ppl are wondering whether the wii will be exactly like the ds like if the friend code is for each game or there is one code for each wii system. Many ppl believe that the "wii number" is the "friend code" everyone is talking about, apparantly it is'nt. That wii number is only used to communicate with that person and send eachother content(pictures,photos,miis),not for online gaming as a system specific friendcode. According to ign and gamespy, the wii will be using the same system as the ds meaning each game has it's own friend code, though it isn't confirmed by nintendo I really hope this isn't true, because it is a big hassle and would destroy online play if your hoping to get more then just ssbb to play online.
