    Wasn't Nintendo's Online Service ALWAYS powered by GameSpy (DS games, etc.)?

    Nintendo used gamespy for the DS too, so don't get excited yet. Nintendo will probably break it again, if it only use the Wii Code it's ok but it will probably use game codes, for whatever reason. I love Nintendo, their games and their vision, but I learned over the years to not get my hopes up again(Gamecube online...). They didn't even learn from the first Xbox live.

    I thought Gamespy helped Nintendo with the stats and game hubs on their Wi-Fi site (NintendoWiFi.com). I wouldn't know for sure, but it looks like it's modeled after Gamespy style hubs.

    I sure hopw they are getting rid of the stupid friend code crap. It's so irritating. Just because some 9 year olds shouldn't see bad stuff or other crap like that. That's what the warning, "game experience may change during online play" is there.

    OK, I'm done with my rant. I still love Nintendo though, but their online sucks.

    that's why you put age restrictions on certain parts. the wii already has age restrictions on games etc, just apply the same to online!
