Nintendo announced yesterday that its Wi-Fi connection figures have just soared past the two million unique player mark.
In a statement Nintendo of America senior VP of marketing George Harrison proudly said “Our handheld leadership will continue unabated with today’s launch (America) of Star Fox Command and the anticipation of our upcoming Wi–Fi titles.”
Nintendo also made mention that statistics have revealed 70 million individual gaming sessions have been played using the service during the 9 months its been up and running.
Nintendo launched its online campaign in November 2005 and in December the company announced that only 200,000 unique users had logged onto the free service.
With the Ds online service being touted as a huge achievement for Nintendo, gamers are hoping the company can replicate the same success on the Wii which also has in built Wi-Fi.
