    Fellow gamers unite. I have set up a Petition which hopefully catches the eye of Nintendo.
    It is about the Online Service, how appalling bad it is. Please it will only take 5 minutes to sign it.

    There's something you lot don't get.
    Petitions are useless, especially the online ones.

    Plain simple: you get what you pay for. What do you pay for? Wait, you don't pay for Nintendo's online service.

    Even less likely to work than a picket line, outside their offices.

    Nintendo have only introduced their online servies as a nod to the fact that some people want them ... if it were up to them, there'd be no online play.

    The Friend Code system is more of a discouragement to online gamers, than it is a security measure, which is what it is billed as. Wait and see what a chore the new Animal Crossing MMO is gonna be, for example, as clear sign of their hatred of online.

    They want multiplayer, but in homes, around a single set ... not online.

    Pretty much every magazine and gaming related website in existince has complained about Nintendo's online service ever since Mario Kart DS was released....There's no way Nintendo isn't aware that their service sucks and leaves everyone dissatisfied...
    I highly doubt this is going to work, unless maybe you're able to collect like 1 million signatures...good luck [​IMG]

    PS: I find it amusing that this petition has more diggs than signatures [​IMG]

    Even that wont change anything, as they'll just write off that may signatures as bots, and suchlike.

    As great as it would be if it did work, it won't.
    Don't say 'at least we can hope' because that won't work - the fact is online petitions rarely ever work.

    I don't see what's wrong with Nintendo's online service. It does what it was set up to do, no more, no less. Also, go outside and meet your friends.

    That part is totally true ... and part of Nintendo's way of thinking, believe it, or not.

    [Side-Note : I have finally finished my work, 'til Monday ... so, I am catching up on some games during the daytime, and raisin' Hell, after dark ... well, 'til Monday, anyway lol]

    Dugg and signed. You should have added some info about the lag in SSBB, because it was horrible.

    This logic is seriously flawed. PSN is free and is miles better than Nintendo's sorry excuse for online.

    Ugh, that's a lame excuse for their bad online service...
    Nintendo's online service lacks very basic features (like being able to communicate with other players [​IMG] ) that are easy to implement and don't require any maintenance once implemented...
    Why is it that PS3 and PC games offer great online services for free?

    You may not pay a subscription fee for the online service, but you're paying for the game (and Nintendo's highly overpriced console) after all...and since the online mode is a central aspect in Mario Kart Wii, one would expect it not to suck [​IMG]
    It's not like Nintendo couldn't afford a good online service...

    Are you high? Both the Wii & the DS are very reasonably priced consoles.

    Hey, second degree anyone?
    There's plenty of good free stuff. But when it's free, you can't complain about the quality, because.. you don't pay for it.
    You still did pay for the console itself, but did that include the online services?

    What the hell?

    How much would you think is reasonable for the most popular console?

    Nintendo have always ripped the UK off, and no amount of petitioning is ever going to change that.

    Good point.

    But I believe there was a time in which an online petition was created to get Capcom to port Okami to the Nintendo Wii, which was successful in a way. I always thought they were intending to bring it to the Wii in the first place but they made it seem as if they had bent to the will of their customers to look good.
