Yesterday, we discussed
the significance of the Everybody Votes Channel, and made some conjecture about how it relates to the future of the Wii online
. We've discovered another theory we think is worth sharing, from a post
made in one of our own comments threads last week! Our readers are so smart; we, of course, take full credit.
Reader Cole thinks that the Everybody Votes Channel is a sneaky way to test netcode for online play, getting players to interact with the system in a simple manner. It sounds plausible to us, and certainly goes a long way in explaining why a poll channel appeared out of nowhere.
