Nintendo soon to offer a free Wi-Fi connection service to DS owners.

This is the big news we've been waiting for. A resounding: soon, and anywhere.

Nintendo President Satoru Iwata outlined the company’s short term strategy today at the Game Developers Conference. In short...

- Nintendo soon will offer a free Wi-Fi connection service to Nintendo DS owners.

- The Wi-Fi protocol for Nintendo DS will provide users with a link to other players across the country or around the world. Once the service begins later this year, Nintendo DS users will be able to connect to the service wirelessly at Wi-Fi hot spots, whether they’re at home, in a hotel or at a coffee shop.

-Nintendo’s next game console, code-named "Revolution," is proceeding on schedule and will include both backward compatibility and Wi-Fi features.

Thanks to all for the landslide of info...

Yes, but what games use it? All we know so far is .... Animal Crossing :( I'm still crossing my fingers for Metroid Prime: Hunters to get online functionality at E3.

lol @ Anonymous :D

You already bought that DS, so Nintendo already got your money. The only person that loses is you, since you lost $50 of value on your DS, while Nintendo runs off with your cash.
