Nintendo Wii online uses Gamespy

GameSpy confirmed it will be the provider for online multiplayer services for future Nintendo Wii games:
Pokemon Battle Revolution, which is due out on June 25, will be Nintendo's flagship title utilizing Gamespy's technology on a home console platform. The pending Super Smash Bros Brawl is also confirmed to include online multiplayer, with third party publishers expected to enter the Wii WiFi community in 2008.

Gamespy, which merged with IGN Entertainment in 2003 and then was subsequently acquired by News Corp, has been providing online multiplayer technology for the Nintendo DS since 2005. So far, the list only includes about two dozens titles and they are not really pushing the technological envelope.
