    Ok, so it wouldn't surprise me if some people from Nintendo read/watch this forum. So Nintendo if you are out there, here are some requests to improve the on-line experience from the Wii....
    • Get games on-line. I know this is in the works, but something more should have been already in place.
    • Mii Channel - It would be nice to be able to click on a Mii and know where it came from. Right now you have the characters name and who created it (which may or may not be listed), but it would be helpful if you could show who sent it to you. By the time you get 15+ Mii's it becomes difficult to know who gave you what.
    • Weather Channel - not sure if this is problem on my end or others too, but the weather channel data seems very out of date. I would check it in the morning and the outside air temperature shows 32f and the Wii is reporting 45f. Would be nice if you could team up with NOAA or the Weather Channel, etc.
    • Message Board:
      -- Give us the ability to sort the address book, at the very least put them in alphabetical order.
      -- When you register a Wii how difficult would it be to send that Wii an email that says John Doe wants to add you, YES or NO.
      -- Allow us to be able to send one email to multiple addresses. I don't think this is possible currently, but it would be a nice feature to add.
      --When you choose the Mii to add to your address book "person", have a pop up that shows the Mii's name please.
    So there is my wish list, feel free to comment, and add your own.......

    Fool

    actually, there are thousands of people across the world who work or are accociated with nintendo, i wouldnt be surprised if a couple of people from ninty come on to have a look, nintendo want to see feedback from customers so they can improve their service and products.

    Yes, it's confirmed. It's also pretty much a fact that it'll be online.

    Speaking of online... I don't really care at this moment in time. I'm on dail-up. My mother said 8 or so months ago that we'll be getting DSL or Cable or something "soon"... I'm still waiting.

    No, I'm pretty sure they don't... but hey, it's worth a try. Maybe they don't have a password either. I'll have my Wii search for a wireless network later, when I gather my Wii Sports stats.

    Creative idea lol but honestly why would nintendo take advice from u?
    No offence but who are we really apart from consumers......if nintendo want 2 add something, they do research on it, test it then release it.
    They dont listen to individual needs.......

    I'm pretty sure the Wii will work online just as the DS does. In that you can play with people you have exchanged friend codes (specific to each game) with AND also a open and/or random person battles.

    Thats how most of the online games for the DS work. A good example is Starfox Command, in that when you go online you can select to play against a friend, play in an "all against all" battle of random people or you can play against "rivals" i.e, people who have a similar skill level to you that are also online.


    I can see why people would like a "lobby" type area to find people to play against them (as i believe xboxlive does), but looking at it from nintendo's perspective i can't see it happening.

    As a brand Nintendo has a very child friendly image, whereas M$ and $ony brands are pitched and percieved to be for higher age groups (see GTA/Manhunt/rape & murder everyone in the world with a rusty chainsaw/etc).

    With the Wii and the DS they are trying to re-establish their brand as one for all ages and abilities - and its working! - you only have to look at the sales figures to see that.

    Why would they risk their new brand image by allowing a possible loophole that could be utilised by the.....less savory people that we all know go online to...errr...do very bad things?

    For proof you only have to look at some of the various threads about viewing porn on the Wii browser. i bet the full version of opera will be locked down tighter than a gnats chuff with regard to porn. Imagine if the porn veiwing capability became general knowledge outside us "ninty fanboys"....do you think little johnny will be getting a Wii for his birthday then???

    but would the wireless range be (for example you could play someone across the globe) worldwide, like xbox live??
