Wii online play already "doomed" says EGM

The February issue of EGM critiques Wii’s virtually non-existent online play. Though I’m reserving final judgment until we see online multiplayer, I feel that online play isn’t a priority for Nintendo. From the article (issue 212): “The Wii’s unified friend code system initially seemed like an upgrade to the DS’s daft online plan, but it’s actually just more of the same nonsense. Once again, each game requires its own separate friend code list…so get ready to input lots of 14-digit codes. Seriously, designing your entire online strategy around preventing child predators simply isn’t a good idea.”
