    I doubt it will ever happen on the Wii; maybe with Wii 2.

    It is a sign the online gaming is becoming cheaper and the Wii has made enough money to subsidize their cost for better servers.

    However, it would be nice to have a link.

    Nintendo's online feels like a total afterthought. At first, the friendcode system never bothered me, but after experiencing xbl, I find it increasingly frustrating.

    The current system will never cope with updates to rival xbl, even the ps system only just competes at the moment (after several updates). It can only happen with the next system, but even then I am doubtful. The wii's (nintendo's?) sucess doesn't lie with it's online, it lies with the local multiplayer - even sony and microsoft dont compete with this. Maybe thats what they need to concentrate on.

    Doubt it...they'd really need to make it one unified account(so the Wii code would work for all games, which is what many thought it would be)

    I think its too late for Nintendo to do that now, but hopefully next generation!


    Also I though that interview you speak of was in regards to WiiWare vs XBLA...or was it the whole services? Perhaps you could link it?
