Disappointing. Not much more to say, really.

Makes sense, as I guess fitba' games are pretty sensitive about control, if that makes any sense. And it's not as though there'll be a huge lack of players.

But by region specific, do they mean only others in the UK, or Europe, or what?

I'd imagine only players within Europe. It's alright I suppose, for lag issues, but they should give us the option to play worldwide if we wanted to.

I'd guess PAL regions, i.e. Europe and Oz.

i bet they'll do the same for smash bros.
i guess this is when the wii's power is really an issue

This doesnt matter does it? I tend not to join US servers when im playing online games on PC due to lag.

Not a big deal really, though they should allow you the choice like they do with the DS. (worldwide, region, etc.).

This means though that many American members, including myself, won't be able to play you all. Hopefully this is just for strikers, as I wouldn't buy it anyway. I dislike soccer.

I don't think this has anything to do with the Wii's power.

So if you add a friend's friend code and they live in another region, you won't be able to play against them via wifi? Or does it just mean the random matches?

Oh, this is a joke. If Smash Bros. has this, I'm selling my Wii. Nintendo truly are completely wank, and have been since the N64.

Oh, for fuck's sake...

First the friend codes, now this. Can Nintendo's online get any worse?

Let's hope this is only limited to Mario Strikers and not big games like Smash Bros and Mario Kart.

Um, you live across the ocean from your gf?

Id say it probably means the random match up thing will be region specific only but i'd think it should be ok once friend codes are entered.
Random matches suck any way it's like your playing ai, especially considering Voice Chat won't included.

This has been mentioned before - just not so bluntly.

It won't effect Friend Code matches, I'm sure.

Nothing to worry about, really, as all this means is the "Worldwide" button isn't there (Was mostly unplayable on games like MKDS anyway due to lag)

They'd probably be going out of their way to limit it, but it makes sense I spose.

I dont care who I was playing, even if it were george bush, if it lagged bad I'd disconnect.

I play my DS online (quite a lot recently) and i've never experienced lag...ever

They should have a worldwide option with a "may experience lag" warning attached to it...but if it doesn't affect friend code matches i don't mind at all.

Avoid Games Like the Plague, productivity++

Good point Smilie, this is Nintendo today, while other companies are taking the risks and having problems, Nintendo is helping us with its "safer" system Smilie

Maybe...

I can see where they are going with lag issues but still but if SSBB is made region specific...
