    since i heard its "friend code" is comming online for the wii, i was thinking...does this mean the only way we can play games online is with their codes? and their wont be any open room games like all other multiplayer games?

    I think its got friend codes but its not the same as DS, so I do think there will be big lobbies of people etc.

    one thing they did say was they were going to try and put on friend code for the Sysyem instead of each individual game, so that should help with trying to remember codes, and i also think that they ae going to do lobbies like metroid mentioned above

    yea, but the only thing is, where would we connect the microphone at? maybe a connector that connects to the wiimote that allows you to plug in the microphone and the nunchuck?

    I'd say WiFi or Bluetooth Headsets are likely.

    It doesn't, but if the headset came with a USB Bluetooth adaptor to connect with the headset, then it would!

    It does have bluetooth. Thats how it communicates with the controllers. But I don't think it will be able to connect to anything but the controllers.

    This is what first surprised me about the wii, was it having bluetooth, as its generally line of site though they say 10 metres for the best use and can be a bit hit and miss. However from reports it seems to work quite well.

    it will most likely be bluetooth, and i doubt it would be usb, as you could easily pull the console down, and you would run out quickly

    Bluetooth isn't line of sight, IR is, which is only used for the pointer. But yes, the controllers are bluetooth.

    As for friend codes...
    The Wii improved over the DS in a few different ways:
    1: The code is system-wide, no more individual codes
    2: There is a set communication system. You can send messages to one another through WC24 on the message board. So now, you don't have to be both logged in to the same game at the same time to communicate
    3: (I assume) no more having to add friends for each individual game. I'm guessing if you get WC24 games, they will automatically syncronise your friends list.

    so #2 basically rules out any chance of online games having lobbies etc?

    casue i dont see how with system codes youll be able to load a game up, go online, and jump into a random room with random people. thats kinda a piss off.
