sounds cool but pokemon doesnt...
In a press release issues today Nintendo have announced their partnership with IGN owned GameSpy.
The partnership will provide multiplayer technology to game publishers developing titles for Nintendo’s Wii video game system.
“This partnership will expand our wireless community of players on Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection,” said Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime. “Millions of Nintendo DS users have already logged on using GameSpy’s technology, and now Wii owners will be able to do the same in a fun and easy-to-use environment.”Pokémon Battle Revolution, the first Wii game to utilize the technology, launches on June 25, with multiplayer features similar to those leveraging GameSpy technology in several Nintendo DS titles.“Nintendo has been an invaluable partner and we look forward to expanding our relationship with them in the future,” said Jamie Berger, Senior Vice President of Consumer Products and Technology for IGN Entertainment. “Our goal is to extend our ground-breaking work on the Nintendo DS to provide Wii users with the social, community and multiplayer tools that we believe will expand the online gaming experience to the mass market.”
that sounds great but its in june i want it now
We get Gamespy and the PS3 has Xfire =/
I DO like online play though Xfire would have been better. I use Xfire
Good news I can't wait for online play
No Longer Have A Wii
I don't really get what any of that means but I'll take your word for it when you say its a good thing. But if someone could clarify...I thought Nintendo had its OWN Online System...why are they partnering up with this group?
Well PS3 teamed up with Xfire because on Xfire if an Added friend is on an Online game and you have that game installed you can go to the game he is on by 'Following' him in using Xfire. GameSpy technically does the same so if you work it out.... Easier Online ExperienceOriginally Posted by MasterJedi2U

Gamespy has the infrastructure and features already developed. There are also millions of gamespy users out there who are familiar with it from PC gaming.
I don't really know for sure if this is a good thing, but I think it will be, it should allow the number of features available to ramp up quickly.
What does this include? Rankings? Anything like that?
360 GT: LostCelestial
PSN ID: AerialSpirit
I've never had any problems with the gamespy client connection service, It always manages to connect me and my friends to games, however i've played one pc game powered by Gamespy (Dow: Dark crusade) and well, rantings about how awful dark crusade is aside, the ranking updates lagged. No idea whether it was the games fault or gamespy.
Post is there ^^^
