    Has the Wii be downgraded becuase it has no online games?

    So as of right now there is over 10 games that could be online.
    1) DBZ
    2) Wii SPorts
    3) Call of Duty 3
    4) Bleach (japan)
    5) Far Cry
    6) Excite Truck
    7) Need for Speed
    8) Red Steel
    9) World Series of Poker
    10) Tony Hawk

    So why is there no option for online???
    Even if they weren't ready for online they could still have the option so in 07 you could play online.

    So is this (besides Graphic's) the worst part of the Wii is that you have all these multiplayer games but no online??? Or even LAN???

    it's just so that the online time is allowed to be perfected and why waste time putting internet on games if it isn't confimed officialy?

    There are currently no online-enabled Wii games because the game developers will not receive the online libraries 'til 2007, which by the way is like a week away. It is possible that some of the games listed above could have hidden online multiplayer options that could be unlocked by a system update, though I doubt that will happen. Soon enough there will be sequels to these games that most likely will have online play. Remember the original Xbox (not the Xbox 360) started out with games that had no online play and look how far they've gone with Xbox Live! Just wait a week and we'll start hearing of different online games coming up.

    I'd say the place Wii has been downgraded is in the Wii Channels and WiiConnect24. The Wii Channels we were promised were late and all of them that require internet access are slow; Shop Channel takes forever, Weather channel takes too long (and is somewhat wrong in it's forecasts), the Internet Channel is somewhat slow starting up and it crashes and doesn't support sites like YouTube, and we still don't have the News channel. Also, it must be said that all the channels are not controlled similarly, meaning some have scroll bars while others use the wiimote's motion and instead of setting some standards like "-" button = back, "+" button = forward, d-pad = scrolling, each is different! My beef with WiiConnect24 is that it really doesn't seem like Wii is connected at all, except when receiving notes that a certain channel is available. Nintendo said you wouldn't even know when a system update was needed, that it would be downloaded when Wii was in sleep mode and then it would be ready when the user started up their system. Seriously Xbox Live is more like WiiConnect24 than WiiConnect24 is.

    The only other place Wii got short-changed would be...in the sensor bar. Nintendo should have made it wireless-capable. What I mean by "wireless-capable" is that it would have a retractable wire and batteries inside. This way you could use the Wii to charge the sensor bar and then just press a button and the sensorbar's wire would be retracted into itself and you could easily take it over to a friend's house. Don't tell that wouldn't be cool.

    Alright, rant over. I bet Nintendo is working on most of these problems as I type.

    Creater of this post...

    Please give it time. It took like 2 years maybe 1 for the PS2 to become Online. Nintendo have barley had Online Games (If any) so give them some time to develop it. Like the post 2 up from this. Xbox took time so shut up and play Zelda and Red Steel until then!



    No Longer Have A Wii

    Yes even though I have to admit I'm disappointed about the online play, things are looking up. SSBB will probably jump start the Wii's online gaming.
