Wii Multiplayer In Q2 2007

Nintendo of America’s top guy Reggie Fils-Aime stated in an interview that online Wii gaming won’t be available until Q2 2007. He implied that the first of the multiplayer enabled games will start to drop in March and that there should be something of an onslaught following that.

I’m not really sure how I feel about this. Six months after launch seems like a particularly long time for Wii owners to have to wait for one of the most standard features of next gen consoles: Online multiplayer action.

It sort of bugs me that companies launch products just to get them out of the door and then customers have to wait months just to get the features they were promised.

Online Wii gaming will roll out Q2 2007, sez Reggie [engadget]
