    No Wif-Fi for 3rd-party developers until 2007

    At the bottom of a recent IGN article is the bombshell news that Nintendo's 3rd party titles wont support online play until 2007!

    Gamers hoping for an online component, however, are in for bad news, because one isn't planned. Activision would not say why, but IGN has separately learned from multiple development sources that Nintendo will not release Wii Wi-Fi Connection libraries to third parties until early 2007, which means that no third party launch title will have an online mode.
    Wow this is a pretty big revelation and may indeed affect sales of the Wii's third party titles given the huge deman for online gaming.

    No big deal. Nintendo just wants to flesh out Wiiconnect24 so that the 3rd parties don't have any major bugs to fix. There will probably be updates and free patches for the games.

    if the wii comes out and the games come out with no wifi would we have to buy the same game in 2007 to have wifi for it?
    Wii savings: = $400.00
    Games = zelda tp, mario galaxy, Wii sports, avatar, dragon quest, elebits.

    No, You shouldn't have to buy the same game with wifi in it.. You should be able to update it with a patch or newer version...
