i found this on gonintendo.com a person left a comment under some news and was curious if anyone has these problems? http://gonintendo.com/?p=19001#comments Speaking of football… Is anyone still experiencing awful lag, drop-outs and console hangs while searching for players in Strikers? I’ve not played online much, i tried the first weekend and it was so bad i gave up. I tried again this last weekend and had 1 game that seemed laggy but playable. So i figured tonight it’ll be quieter and i’ll have a few online matches. So far i’ve had: my console lockup after searching for players for ages numerous people decide 4 our of 5 stars for connection quality isn’t enough so after ages searching it craps out making the search for a game frustrating! 3 matches just crap out (one of which was an intense match in the golden goal stage and that really pissed me off!!) awful lag just appear out of nowhere during a match. anyone who fancies an international match, i’d suggest you think again! then just when i thought i’d finally got a match going and was starting to enjoy it, on the second game (of the best of 3) the sound decided to just not be there. some effects were there but mostly it was quiet. so then i had to reboot the damn console to get it back!! i can understand the service gets thrashed on the first weekend, but on a monday evening i expected it to be relatively stable. i’m all for this free online service provided it’s actually fun and i’m sure eventually it’ll be sorted out, but right now it’s a bloody nightmare. my internet connection is usually very stable and at 4Mbs so i’m struggling to see how i’m having issues other people aren’t. /rant Fifa ‘08, the Mii integration does look nice. I did wonder if we’d ever really see 3rd parties using them. It’s a fine line between giving developers access to something that will be unified and yet giving them the freedom to make it personal, it looks like Nintendo may have got it about right. I expect to see a lot more Mii integration like this. Still waiting for an expansion to the Mii creation toolbox though!
