    Maybe I'm mistaken, but from what I see, the original article doesn't mention friend codes at all.

    It's good news because instead of pissing about with 20 different friend codes to pass on (a la DS), you will only have to give out one. Seems pretty obvious to me.

    There´s gonna be lobbies. You create a character on your wii and interact with other´s persons characters. [​IMG] right?

    This really is fantastic news. [​IMG]

    Hopefully you can have multiple friend codes per console (room mates, friends etc...). Maybe one is assigned per Mii, ie. per Wii-mote?

    But am I the only one that CAN'T find this supposed information on the micro site? [​IMG]

    Not really, the Mii don't interact with other Mii as far as I can see. I could be wrong though.

    I´m almost sure I saw it on the 1up show. I´ll search it.

    I put it on you tube;

    Mii Creation

    They don´t mention any interaction but there´s others Miis... [​IMG]

    Just because you can make multiple Mii doesn't mean you can take them online, much ess communicate with people you're playing with/against online.

    They may add online Mii interaction later on. They already said you can store your Mii in the Wiimote to interact with somebody else's Miis.

    Great, nothing like having you little sister hop online to screw over your Mario Kart record.

    One friend code per console. Sounds a bit like a static IP to me, well the same sort of thing. Hopefully they can't or won't be banning people from the servers. I'd hate to get banned in one game because of some whining kid who can't play and not be able to play a different game.
