Nintendo Look To Ramp Up Online Gaming

Nintendo who last week projected a fall is sales of their Nintendo Wii is close to launching a new online service similar to Xbox Live and the Sony Playstation Network.

Accused of having the “poorest” online gaming service, Shigeru Miyamoto the head of development at Nintendo said on Friday that the Company could change the multi-player gaming on the DS and Wii to follow the Xbox Live model.
While the current system is free both to browse and to play online, the Super Mario creator floated the possibility to journalists of either charging for most content or offering extras to those willing to pay. 
According to Edge, Miyamoto rejected the idea that Nintendo wasn’t as active online and thought it “unfair” the company was lagging behind. The Wii was designed to be online all the time, he argued, so Nintendo has always been aggressive in that way. He admitted that the company hasn’t encouraged online gaming such as massively-multiplayer titles.
According to various media sites online gaming on both the DS and Wii usually needs special friend codes that prevent the easy creation of large lists of friends and make it more difficult to play in groups.
