Nintendo DS WiFi Service Going Live on Nov. 14
by Todd Ogasawara
The press release mentions four upcoming Nintendo DS games that will be WiFi game-play enabled: Mario Kart DS, Animal Crossing: Wild World, Metroid Prime Hunters, and Activision's Tony Hawk's American SK8Land.
Nintendo also announced it Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector that creates a Wireless Access Point for households that do not already have a WAP. It plugs into a computer plugged into a broadband connection and (presumably) creates a wireless bridge for the DS.
This will create interesting LAN policy management issues for parents as a potential horde of pre-teens discover real-time wireless web game-play from anywhere in a WiFi equipped house or free hot-spot.
Have a Nintendo DS (or, more likely, a pre-teen or teenager in your house with one)?
