Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection has crossed two huge milestones within just days of one another. Worldwide, since its launch in November 2005, Nintendo’s wireless gaming service has now connected more than 5 million unique Nintendo DSâ„¢ owners, and those gamers have racked up more than 200 million game-play sessions. Worldwide, nearly 65 games can be played via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. The five most popular globally are Animal Crossing: Wild World, Mario Kart DS, Metroid Prime Hunters, Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl.
Yep, you heard that right, 5 million DS owners are connecting to the Nintendo Wi-Fi service. I’ll tell you right now that I am one of them and I can believe it.
Not to bash Nintendo or anything but… I have been having a lot of trouble using the Global Trade Station in my Pokemon game of late. I think it is due to severe server loads on Nintendo’s part.
Get it together Nintendo! Pokemon Battle Revolution is only a month away. I don’t want to have to deal with dropped connections the way I do now with the Global Trade Station.
