@OP: The virtual console is a feature of the Wii that lets you download older NES, SNES, SEGA and N64 games directly to your Wii. No discs! The games cost anywhere between 500 and 1000 points each (~$5-$10USD) and you can either buy 2000 point cards in retail stores for ~$20 or use your credit card on the Wii to purchase points.
You need an active internet connection (WIRELESS) to use it. All you have to do is turn on the Wii, go the Wii Shop Channel and select the games you want.
