Nintendo boasts 1 million wi-fi users

Nintendo claims that its wireless gaming service now has over one million unique users. The Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, which lets Nintendo DS owners interact in a variety of games, got its one millionth user from Japan, who logged on to play Animal Crossing: Wild World. The company is planning to expand the service even further, with a series of high profile game launches including Animal Crossing: Wild World, Tetris DS and Metroid Prime Hunters.

I saw this at n-sider (they have a picture of the web site for the 1 millionth unique login). I want to pick up a DS, but I'll probably wait for the lite to make it to our shore.

Since I started playing on the WiFi connection, I've had to keep the charger nearby. WiFi sucks up the battery like there's no tomorrow & I only have Mario Kart DS so far (that uses the WiFi connection).Things will only get worse once I get Animal Crossing. :(

THis is pretty much expected. Things will get even better when the rev and lite come out.
