    Exactly. Nintendo has always made online gaming an afterthought... but it doesn't work like that anymore, no matter what kind of technology you put inside your console, there needs to be ONLINE gaming to have that lasting factor. The novelty will wear off soon unless you can play against other people... that's what makes the XBox 360 so amazing. All I am saying is this info is unfortunately proving my point.

    Remember that Microsoft took awhile before they got online play on the xbox. By the time they got to the 360, they had it perfected.

    I kind of expected Nintendo to take awhile to get the online component worked out. But, you're right, if they don't do online right, they're toast.

    That is definitely a positive way to look at it. I am just really hoping Nintendo pulls the online side together. I would love to see a Mic for the Wii too. There would be NOTHING like trash talking or talking to your team while using the Wii's mad awesome controller. Please Nintendo pull it together.

    The funny thing is I don't think perfection is important in launches anymore. 360 with it's heating problems, PS3 had a few problems with Cells and shifted their allocations. Nintendo's problem with their online stuff. Just kinda sad that things like this keep happpening to all console launches. While I don't expect all things to go just right, I kinda do want game companies to start following through it would be refrehing to again have a console come out that delivers what's promised... and I agree that Nintendo can't drop the ball on online play, not that it'd be the end of Nintendo if it took another console to get to it but now's the time to start geting on it, same goes for their graphics.
    Yes a text sig

    My Wii is small...
