    Nintendo never banned third parties supposedly. That was a nasty organized rumor. The first online game is some pokemon game, third parties are supposedly going to start popping out around Q2/Q3. Supposedly.

    So has that "2007 online ban" officially been declared worthless? Or is it implied? Because I did think it was too far-fetched to be true.

    Hope Activision makes a good online game with what Nintendo gives them (aka the dreaded Friend Codes).

    It's not that 3rd parties were banned, it's that it took Nintendo forever to get the online development libraries to the other developers. And now that they have it, it'll take awhile for them to get their games working with it. That could take until late this year or next.

    Nintendo never said they banned 3rd party online.. Hermen (whoever he is) said it. Theres bo fact behind it.

    Maybe not, but wasn't Blazing Angels was supposed to be online? That's apparently been scotched.

    I'm excited.
    Activision makes some pretty decent games. I'd like to see what they make in the future for the Wii.

    Good. Can't believe the number of people that bought it. Again, I thought it was too far-fetched to be true. Also, are there any games that Activision announced that has online?

    Great news. Hopefully this will help other 3rd parties to make Wii online games.

    i called and asked the representative if its true 3rd party games wont have online until 08. He said, he hasent heard of that and that hasent been confirmed. He said its up the people "upstairs".


    So, nintendo hasent confirmed it yet, so there is still a chance. i asked him if madden 08 can be online and he said yes, that is a possibility but that depends on the company and if they put it online( i think he said that).... He also said Nintendo will have wifi games before them...

    ( if the rumor is true, but i agree and think it was a widespread rumor) I was thinking, maybe nintendo wont let 3rd party company's
    put online games yet because they want to wait until there games come online. Mario strikers, SSBB, so once they come out, which after they both come out, it would be around 08, then 3rd party game company's can have online...yet pokemon is coming out first so they would be the first ones..... the only thing we can do is wait.
