Mii-specific friend code rumour fake
The Wii´s online service will not use Mii-specific friend codes across various games. Justin Dowdeswell, producer of ´Mario Strikers Charged´, has been either mistranslated by news sites The Platformers and Joystiq or misquoted by French gaming site Gamers.fr.
I just spoke to Justin Dowdeswell on the phone and he clarified that his comments about Mii-specific codes related only to his game. He said that he never intended to comment on any other titles, nor would he know about how they implemented online features.
The Wii´s online service will be based on game-specific codes, as I exclusively revealed in mid-March.
