GamespywiiWii fans, get ready to play games online! Nintendo is once again teaming up with GameSpy to bring multiplayer online games to the Wii, something Nintendo has been criticized for previously.

The technology from GameSpy would be provided to game publishers so that they can incorporate the multiplayer online option into their games.  This means that people would be able to create lists of friends for different games, advanced matchmaking would be possible, and comprehensive rankings would give you the bigger picture of how you stand-up to players around the world.

The first game that will have this option is Pokemon Battle Revolution which will be launching late June, with others following.

This comes shortly after Sony announced their Playstation Home, an online virtual world to respond to the complaints that they were lacking in the online support area.

What games would you like to see incorporate the multiplayer online feature?
