    Well, my British copy didn't have the Wi-Fi logo on the front, but it still has it on the disk.

    I hope for the sake of Australian gamers, that it does have Wifi.

    I can't think of a decent reason why it would be taken out.

    And I shall shed the skin of the person at EA who thought that we wouldn't want online play!!!!

    Nope, Deanis got it last week, no wifi logo on the cover, it did however have things in the instruction booklet talking about online and all that....but there's really no point because there is no online!!! Would we be able to sue for false advertising...?

    Yer there you go, I shouldve taken a photo of the booklet to use as evidence, but its clear that we dont have it, and they originally stated we did, I was cautious already as I didnt see the Wi-Fi logo on the back of case, but after being told by EA for months it was indeed 32 player online I bought it....obviously falsely advertised, I returned the game, apparently along with 3 other people who returned it the day after it was released, all for the same reason, EA had ripped us Aussies off, AND without an explanation to top it off, as far as I know there STILL hasnt been a report on why we missed out, and why EA never told us we wouldnt have the online, I'm sure this is a feature which wouldnt have been removed in one day, they would of thought it over and perhaps there were limtations with srtting up servers here. The excuses wouldnt interest me, I wanted a 32-player online experience with my Wii, EA promised but they didn't deliver, not only that they managed to deliver it to the rest of the world bar Australia and offered no explanation or proof as to a removal of this service from our version. The single-player experience alone is no where near enough to vailidise purchasing this game, it is typical WWII affair, with terrible graphics yet expected excellent controls, but the main focus must of been on the online mode, cos the campaign sucked of what I played of it, and the Multiplayer option wasnt even available, not that it didnt work, it just didnt exist.
    Very bad business decision on EA's side, and one that I hope tarnishes its image in Australia, it is a ruthless company and one that is slowly losing market value and dominance, despite co-owning so many different developers and companies, and I'm sure it is due to business decisions such as this. Mistake right here, and as of now I shall not be buying anymore EA products, please to any Australians there, do NOT buy MOH;H2, show that Australia have a right to get the product promised to them, and the rest of the world, and that we dont deserve 2nd rate versions, limited from the online use promised to us months ago, and to those that HAVE bought it, return to the store you got it from, claiming fraudulant, misleading advertisement of a product, and hopefuly EA will change their tune, though I feel it may be too late....

    Sorry, I was under the impression that the instruction booklet had instructions for online.

    Must have either misread or got a duff report from somewhere.

    EDIT: looks like it may have been a cock-up.

    Shocking! After the lengthy wait I'd be a bit pissed at the lack of online play!
