Conduit 2 - Final Euro box art, Let the Wifi Black symbol debate continue!

...really?? a bunch of new randoms shows up, thinking they know more about this games development than everyone else.

of course Conduit is still using GameSpy's servers!!!

Sega DOES NOT have their own, if they did, the first Conduit wouldnt have to deal with any of Nintendo's bull **** regulations.

How about anyone that doesnt think so, go google it yourself. Its a simple matter that wont take more than 5 minutes to find out. Go google why having Activision's servers allows BO Wii's online can do what its doing now.

Servers don't mean anything in these games. All they do is connect people, and once they are connected they stay in the background. Where servers really matter is when the server actually hosts the game (see MOH:H2 and their 32 players online). In games like Black Ops, one player is selected to host the game and the servers become irrelavent. In The Conduit, there was no server that mattered because the game worked more like a workgroup.

((I'm surprised how theres no direct article about this.... i'm astonished at how much i have to dig in order to find articles about Nintendo's regulations and Online games on the Wii.))

Since SEGA doesnt have their own servers, HVS has to use whatever servers Nintendo has, which is GameSpy. Anything that uses GameSpy's servers has to go through Nintendo's regulations. Which means no patches, DLC, no voice chat, and YOU HAVE TO HAVE FRIEND CODES.

Proof - interview with a HVS developer on the subject.

As for Treyarch and Activision, i cant for the life of me find any website with them stating "We can have patches and online chat because of Activisions servers." But i do know THAT IS THE EXACT REASON why Black Ops has those things.

My Point:
If a Wii game is using GameSpy's servers, you probably arent gonna be able to use wii speak/headsets, no party system, no patches, and forced to use friend codes.

Hey shader, before you start talking out of your backside, realize that not everyone with a different opinion from you is "some random". All I said was that I thought the black logo meant that Nintendos wifi connection was not the networking service... Just like Black Ops. It's true C2 will still have to have FCs and go through Nintendo for random online things, remember that Black ops also has to jump through hoops with patches. So having a similar infrastructure a Nintendo server does not make.

No just no, the only FPS that used own serves was Medal honor Heroes 2, EA. So yeah like I said Black Symbol for me means: Updates/Patches...

Wat. It's common information. It doesn't say Nintendo Wifi Connection, and has countless features not allowed on Nintendo servers. Play the game. -_-
