    I really Hate Nintendo Now!! :mad5:

    Falafelkid: I would like to know if I am right in assuming that the features mentioned (friend rosters, advanced matchmaking capabilities and comprehensive rankings data) suggest a single, unified online platform for each console, rather than one which is dependent on individual games (as is the case with the DS).

    GameSpy: GameSpy’s technology does allow for features that could span multiple games. With the Nintendo Wii, however, the multiplayer features are title-specific.

    Falafelkid: But is that the case for all Wii online titles across the board?

    GameSpy: Yes, that is the case for Wii titles.

    Falafelkid: Just one last question to make absolutely sure I have got this right, please. If I have a friend roster in one game, that roster will not be available to me in any other game. I have to build up an entirely new list for each title, right?

    GameSpy: The answer to your question is yes, for the Wii friend lists are game specific.

    maybe im off, but doesnt that just mean you'lll have to re-write your profile name, on, maybe 10 games? or does it mean something monumentous that i didnt understand like no online O_O but if its the first of the two, not too much of a big deal?


    /edit oh, nvm, its about friend list :p

    well thats not too bad, you have to rewrite your name/profile on every pc game, right? all you have to do is choose the same name lol.
    thats not too bad :)
    -edit as long as the internet works nicely (minis this little flaw) im fine w/ it as the game i'll be playing most is SSBB anyways :p

    so i cant just hop online and play w/ random ppl ? im sure something'll come out in the way of a web site where you just enter your friend code and everyone adds you so you have a larger amount of ppl you can play that you dont even know. :confused:

    I really want to play a good online console :( I'll have to get a Ps3. I'm sure the wii's online multiplayer will be great though.

    It's all still speculation as to how it's gonna work. Worry about it being p**s poor if or when the time comes.

    Calm down people, it'll be alright..........promise!

    Err, wouldn't this indicate that they're doing a "no friend codes needed for online play" (just if you wish to play specific people, then friendcodes are needed)?

    Also, here's Nintendo's bit on friendcodes:
    Source: http://www.nintendowifi.com/consume...GTS_Friends&catId=GTS_Friends#GTS_friends_get
    Seeing as though the DS and Wii are using the same wi-fi stance (even the USB dongle can be used on the Wii), it wouldn't make much sense for them to change it. Also, it stops people from selling on their games with an ungodly high stats/rankings etc for money - stopping people from making money out of Nintendo's acheivements.

    Also, I don't see what the big deal with friendcodes is. You can play other people online without them, it's just that you need a 12 digit code to play specific people with it.

    No surprise that Nintendo is going to ruin the Wii Online Gaming Experience. PLEASE tell me I don't have to end up buying a 360, because god knows I don't want to do that.

    I said Nintendo's greatest weakness has been online gaming. We'll have to wait and see how they handle this June 25th. I doubt it'll be bad. If you want supreme online gaming right now, the only one who comes close is the 360, and that's sad. The industry, PC included as a whole has a very poor selection of online games, and options.

    Instead of crying now, just wait and see what it has to offer.
