Leader in Multiplayer Technology Enables Exclusive Community Functionality for NintendoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Hit Console!
Gamespy announced today that it will provide multiplayer technology to game publishers developing titles for NintendoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s WiiÃ¢â€žÂ¢ video game system. As part of an ongoing partnership with Nintendo, GameSpy has developed middleware technology to enable Wii titles to offer community features, such as friend rosters, advanced matchmaking capabilities and comprehensive rankings data.
