    Sega (a third party developer) is releasing in Japan on May 24 a pachinko game for the Wii that is both online and uses Mii's - two things that were rumored to be unavailable to 3rd party developers until next year. Obviously the rumor was wrong.

    And here's the page for the game in case you read Japanese, but there are screenshots showing Mii's:

    Also, this interview with Activision indicates they are also working on online Wii games:

    maybe, yet we'll probably not see online games in near future.

    May 24 is barely over 2 months away
    Although that's a Japenese release that probably won't be released elsewhere.

    Yeah. I'll check my Official Nintendo Magazine when I get it on my doorstep soon...
    Any news and thats the first Magzine to get it I tell you that :)
    I have high hopes for Online play. Myabe this 'Rumor' was casued to get people more alert for online games so when one came out it was like WOT?
