Wii Sims Online?

In a recent edition of IGN's popular N-Query, Matt Casamassina had the following to say when asked if Sims for the Nintendo Wii would be online:

I recently interviewed EA about the game - I'll post the transcript soon - and the developer wouldn't come right out and say it, but made very clear to me that it is exploring an online component for MySims. The signage you saw only strengthens my belief that the game will have it. Oh, and on a side note, I've chatted with some third parties now who already have online components in their forthcoming Wii projects. It's coming, guys - Pokemon Battle Revolution kicks it off in the near future, but in the next six months you're going to start seeing a wave of third party games that take Wii online, too. Developers have had the online SDK for months now and the next wave of titles will incorporate it.

Well it seems as though Nintendo is finally taking notice and implementing some online components in their future endeavors. We all knew that it was coming with the release of Nintendo's own Pokemon franchise this June; it's just great to hear that 3rd parties are now lining up to get in on Nintendo "Wii-Fi."

More as it develops.
