Poll: Japanese People Thought Dragon Quest IX Would Have WiFi

This Saturday Dragon Quest IX is going on sale in Japan. Apparently, there are already 2 million pre-orders. Some of those folks might be in for a surprise!

The game uses the DS's local ad hoc wireless, but loads of gamers thought the title would use the DS's WiFI connection so that players didn't have to be in the same room to play co-op.

A quick poll at game site IT Media showed that an overwhelming number of those who responded thought the game would have proper WiFi. The poll, which a thousand readers participated in, reads:

I don't think they're going to be that bothered. Online Play isn't exactly the main draw of Dragon Quest.

It's a pity it doesn't have it though.:(

You dont go asking the entire population of a country - you go in and ask a section. Maybe you shouldnt spin this poll in your defense of Nintendo...

I cant even fathom where you see this as an attack on Nintendo... more an accused finger at Square-Enix for neglecting to inform the public.
