For me, if Nintendo added Online play with some decent stat tracking, the game would shoot up my list to most wanted.
I would probably play online much more often. I don't play online very much, because I am not driven to win.
This is really Nintendo's oppurtunity to get the casuals hooked on gaming, so they will buy more games.
An in-game gamer score, shared with friends. That would be great.
I think many of the pissed off Nintendo fans would change their minds about Nintendo, about Casual games, and about Nintendo Milking the "Wii" brand.
Think it will happen? What are some features I'm missing?
What do you think the effect will be?
I would cite regulation, but I know you will simply ignore it.
