Will wi-fi make handheld games 'buggy'?


GameSpy: Is there any chance that full online internet play could be patched into the game via a download?

Nino: No. The game was designed to add extra content, not to patch the game.

Wi-fi gives, however, the possibility of patching handheld games via download. Of course, patches are usually a good thing: they serve to enhance (or fix) the game. But on the other hand, what if handheld players are forced to download several patches for their games (as it happens to PC gamers)? Wouldn't it drive people away from the handhelds - specially the casual / non-gamer audience they intend to seduce?
