    Recently on GoNintendo, There was report on a Japanese retailer site saying Brawl was being shipped Nov.22 in Japan WITH WIFI PLAY. May were skeptical but It is reported that another source, Coro-Coro Magazine,which is extremely trustworthy has confirmed this true.

    CONGRATULATIONS!!! BRAWL HAS WIFI.8)

    I will see you guys online with Pit,Wario, and maybe Giga Bowser [​IMG]

    By "Wi-Fi" I hope they don't mean a watered down experience only available on like 3 stages only

    From the brief time I've played Strikers Charged, it looks like Wifi on that was pretty good (except for missing chat capabilities) so I wouldn't be surprised if this was true and if it turned out pretty good.

    It could be worse. They could mean that you get to post your top records on leader boards...

    Heh, it'd be funny if it was to upload screenshots.

    If it's WFC for fights then this will be the highest selling game of all time.

    Cool, but if it's same as mairo strikers wifi it's almost same as playing against cpu. So i hope that they'll even try to do something : D (but i think that it will be almost exactly same online experience) Still better than no online at all.

    btw when i randomly looked form wikipedia some time ago. There was wifi also mentioned, but no one can trust wikipedia.

    By Wi-Fi, I'm thinking the watered down experience we received with Mario Kart DS where you can't chat with other players and they are selected randomly according to your rank.

    Anyone envisioning a game browser or easy matching will be sorrily disappointed.

    I'm a huge Nintendo fan. But Nintendo needs to stop being so freakin kid oriented and listen to the gamers. At least allow two modes of WiFi: one for kids, and the other for mature people. That way there can be some sort of choice of matches for us gamers.

    "watered down"?
    You could play the game with random internet strangers. It was enough for a "first shot", IMHO.
    What would you want to see in online mario kart? clans? Jumping into a game mid-race?

    Honestly, the only lacking thing was not being able to do battle mode online. The other non-racing modes suck ass so I won't miss them if they're not playable through the WFC.

    Nopes, you don't need to defend Nintendo about anything. Wi-Fi on both DS and Wii sucks, period. No lobbies, no chatting with the other person etc. Do you know how much time we spent to play Mario Kart on Wi-Fi with 4 friends ? Nintendo's online initiatives suck and they're really not enough.

    In comparison, Socom: FTB, Socom: FTB 2, and Syphon Filter, all online multiplayer games with lobbies, chatting, clan features, etc.

    Nintendo, should really ditch FC for this game. They should do what EA did with EA Nation, no FC, and use Lobby System.

    Smash Bros for the Wii was planned to have WiFi from the beginning, I believe.

    Planned is one thing, execution is another. I won't believe it has online play until I see it for myself.

    I understand how people feel about Nintendo's online service, but I'm starting to get tired of people complaining so much about it... Its really not that bad when you think about it. The friend codes aren't that much of a hassle in my opinion. It only takes a couple of seconds to input one, don't be so lazy [​IMG]. Yeah, chatting is missing in the online play, but honestly, some games really don't need chatting... simply put, I just wanna come online and kick any random person's butt, end of story. My experience so far with Nintendo's online service has *usually* been lag free and as long as Brawl has a lag free 1 on 1 battle, I'm perfectly fine with just that [​IMG].

    You forgot to mention it's free too. The FC's are kinda annoying though. And I wish they add an improved rival/friend system where you can at least contact them. I don't remember lag as being much of a problem with Nintendo games unless it was because of your internet connection.

    But I don't think this is confirmation. Is there anyone with the actual magazine? I'll probably only believe the info once it's on Sakurai's Smash blog or stated from Nintendo.

    That's what I was thinking...Coro Coro is reliable, and with the scans I seen so far (which include new screens!), I don't see the words WiFi, or the release date, which were both mentioned in this issue. I could be just blind and missed it though!

    I'm taking this with a grain of salt, can't have too much expectations! Let's hope for a good Monday update.
