Were you hoping to battle a friend in a game of basketball or golf in Wii Sports Resort over the Internet? Well, unfortunately Shigeru Miyamoto has confirmed that there is no online support for the title. Miyamoto stated in a video interview with GameSpot that Wii Sports Resort is the type of game in which “you want to see your opponents face.”

“I think that there are different types of competition, different ways that people compete with each other and I think we can look at different titles and how they apply themselves to that face-to-face competition and maybe say that online competition. I think games like Wii Sports Resort, New Super Mario Bros. for Wii, are games that you want to see your opponents face, you want to play with them right there. And I think because it does allow for players of various experience levels to play together, we really haven’t thought of that being something we want to put online. We want people to be playing it together physically…”
