    So i was reading in my new issue of EGM (may 07) and it says

    "Both Microsoft and Sony are enjoying online play, but apparently this idea isn't connecting with Nintendo. This isn't helping either: SNK America President Ben Herman stated in an interview with Spong.com that Nintendo (still) isn't letting publishers include online capabilities in their games. Hmm, not very friendly."


    what do you guys think? are we ever going to be able to play each other on the Wii?!?!?!?

    i cant wait for SSB:B or Mario Party 8.......... but will they be Multiplayer Online?!

    wtf?

    well this is something similar to what we have heard before, that nintendo arent giving rights to other publishers for online wii games..

    but thats not to say nintendo games wont, pokemon and mario strikers are going to have online multiplayer for example

    EDIT - sorry forgot to say, its still shitty

    isnt there an artical in the artical section about game spy teaming up with nintendo??

    if this is the case then id say they are getting ready for online play they are just getting the platform ready... ive never played online games on a console so its not a big deal to me...online PC gaming the is way to go.

    I think Nintendo is preventing third parties from including online capabilities until 2008. However Nintendo will release games with online functionality until then so don't worry.

    Japan have online play with pokemon revolution, USA get online play with revolution in june I think and UK gets Mario strikers charged with online on May 25th! Can't wait for that one.

    It is also true that Nintendo have stopped 3rd parties from making games online until 08', So we just have to wait and make do with Nintendo's online, which I sure is awesome!

    I must say Nintendo are being Harsh.
    But I would like to state my opinion...

    If I was to create a system. I'd made sure that my Customers will be happy before letting it out. This is what Nintendo are doing. They need to test the system in America and Europe before they even start to give it out. They want it to be perfect and I can't blame them for that

    First off anyone who says they aren't letting publishers have online stfu Publishers don't make games

    Developers already have online dev kits 2008 is just the estimate for when the first one can be finished

    The possibilities are up to Nintendo and the servers they purchase. We will have to wait and see. Articles like this are trying to prod info out of Nintendo. Gamespot does this all the time with their Bogus/Not Bogus section.

    Bogus: Nintendo won't have online games.
    Not Bogus: Nintendo isn't releasing any solid info on their online gaming network. Learn some patience.

    Sheesh i thought everyone knew that online play is coming in May for Europe and June for USA.:rolleyes:

    Im glad that Nintendo has took their time, if they had rushed out shoddy online play then everyone would be complaining about that.

    Ben Herman also stated this in an interview posted on IGN today:
    "Right now we're analyzing the projects we've got on the way for Wii, trying to figure out which will work for us in online, as there's a cost involved to add that into a Wii game, but as we go forward there's no question that we'll take advantage of that as other third parties are. In a previous interview before Wii released I commented that I wanted to see Nintendo really move forward with online, as that's something we couldn't get with GameCube, and now that it's here we're definitely going to support it."

    Dosent sound like Nintendo is not allowing any 3rd party online games to me.

    I know from somewhere that nintendo isnt letting 3rd party publishers make online games for 07, but after that it will.

    i am glad that online isnt out yet. itll be 3 times as good as every other country for USA since its coming out later. the later it comes out then the better itll be. all we have to do is wait 2 more months and well all be online.
    PATIENCE IS THE KEY TO VICTORY!!!
