    I have never really bothered with wifi, but the other day I was sat on the bog and fired up Super Space Invaders and realised there was wifi multiplayer features. I logged on and it listed me as USA (I am in the UK, but was apparently running the (U) release of the game).

    This got me wondering :

    1. Do all games use the same nintendo servers in the same location, or can games have their own servers located at the game developers offices etc

    2. Do (U) games connect to servers in the US, Do (E) games connect to servers in Europe etc.

    3. Do all games connect to one big online service provided by Nintendo (actualy, is this the same as question 1, who knows)

    Any thoughts.

    Sorry if this has been asked before, I just can't stand using the search on GBAtemp since they moved over to Google. I hate it, I hate it, I hate it
