    If any of you have seen the nintendo press conference at E3 you would know that, Reggie stated that everyone has been saying when is nintendo getting into online gaming, then he states they already have with the vc, ds wifi, and all the channels. Dont you think he was ignoring online multiplayer? Sure, the ds has it with games like metroid prime hunters and pokemon but, what about wii online multiplayer? we have mario strikers, pokemon battle revolution, and madden. i think i speak for everyone when i say WE WANT ONLINE MULTIPLAYER ON MOST GAMES. nintendo's new platform is known for having mini game compilations such as rayman raving rabbids and mario party. well why arent those online? we want them online so we can play with our friends across the country. i also want voice chat capability in these online multiplayer games when they come out. i would love talking trash to my friends after i kill them in ssbb in december IF that game is online. please discuss this, and we can only hope that nintendo listens.

    if you watched the rest of the press conference you would know Mario strikers Charged is online, and Medal of Honor Airborne is online, and Mario Kart for wii is online, and Fifa soccer 08 and Madden football 08 are online, and Brawl is online, and some more just cant remember there names.

    Edit: you named a few

    yes your right, but they are trying to stay away from the online multiplayer. they never said brawl was online ever in that press conference. nintendo is to afraid of the youth of the world will be exposed to trash talking and foul language. most of the people that own wii's i know are over 14 years of age also if you are young and have a wii online game your parents wouldnt let you go online. also VOICE CHAT!!!!!!

    Medal of Honor: Airborne is a 360/PS3/PC game. The Wii Medal of Honor mentioned in the press conference is Medal of Honor: Heroes 2.

    yeah also third party games taht are online for ps3/xbox-360(like guitar hero 3 for instance) are online for wii, plus you have to acknowledge that nintendo is new to getting games online, so they're not going to make every single game online

    Voice chat? Give me a break, Nintendo would never do that, and besides there is no guarantee the person you're playing against has a headset. Brawl will be online most likely because they will allow no chatting between people, just fighting.

    if brawl is online i wont be surprised if online play is just 1 vs. 1 since timing in a fighting game is much different than a fps game

    I also did hear some rumour not too long ago about the Wii getting headsets later on when there are more online games. o_O

    Yeah, you do. xD Anyway, I forgot to mention that Nintendo has a lot (a lot) of young customers. Why would they allow kids to be chatting with strangers. I know parents will have some control over this but there is no guarnatee, so Nintendo will most likely take the safe route.

    True, there would probably be too much arguing, or anger, involved from being smashed. Its best just to leave it at battling, even no text. Simply because it puts the attention on the game and not chatting or arguing, or insults.

    Text, how would you even consider text? You can't type while you're in the middle of a fight where you have to constantly stay alert. :lol:

    Gingerkid is correct. Nintendo IS trying to stay away from online games. They want Wii to be for that larger, expanded, casual audience--but yeah, if it will get us to leave them alone, they'll ALLOW some online to slip through. The hardcore experience is left up to 3rd parties (and discouraged). Go EA. Hurry MOHH2.

    Thats my point, but that doesn't stop the majority of the online games from having some form of communication, people "want" - "need" to communicate somehow, but really I find it distracting because no useful info (to the current situation in the game) is ever useful, just distracting.

    Look at socom, voice chat, text, and macro'ed "slogans". All took away from the game itself and probably introduced some form of latency, especially voice over ip.

    P.S. and no, don't go EA. The games they make are trash, at least for the PC. I don't buy any console games, don't have a console with good games to buy. Not only that EA has ruined the only companies I liked, Maxis and westwood. EA - The bigger they are, the harder they fall.
