Nintendo not letting developers add online gaming
From an interview with SNK Playmore USA president Ben Herman, he had some bad news about Nintendo and online gaming. This is interview is from www.nintendowiifanboy.com.
Herman says that Nintendo is not letting publishers add online functionality to games, VC or retail, and probably will continue this restriction throughout 2007.
Online is a big part of gaming now and if this is true that Nintendo is keeping publishers from adding online gaming, I don’t see the reason behind it unless their online system just isn’t ready. A year is a long time for no online gaming and this fact may draw some people away from the system.
