    Some information please!!

    Right ive just ordered my Wii as they were sold out for a long time b4 x-mas. Just some questions as this machine seems so different from my ps3.

    1. Do i need a memo card (SD etc) or is there a int HDD?

    2. To take it online..can i use Ethernet or is it wifi only?

    3. To play online i need to buy a card? Why and what is this?

    4. Why hasn't Nintendo got the rights to use Rare games for its backlog?

    Any help would be gratefully received

    1. There is an internal hard drive, pretty large too. You can also use an Sd card to carry memory over to other people's wii's.

    2. I'm pretty sure it is Wifi only. From what I see/hear it can only be done by wireless router. Don't quote me though.

    3. You do not need to buy a card. Get your connection set up, and have fun playing! Note that there are only a few games out right now that you can play serious online gaming.

    4. No idea on that law mumbo jumbo haha.

    Hope that helped some! And welcome to the forums!

    1) No, it has internal flash memory if not a HDD. SD card is only needed so much as to back up games or save files if you start to fill up your Wii memory (and in that event, don't buy Nintendo brand--it's slightly overpriced). You do, however, still need a Gamecube memory card for Gamecube games.

    2) You'd have to buy an adapter to use ethernet. For additional, related knowledge: The only extra ports on the Wii are the two USB ports in the back.

    3) The Wii points card is redeemed for credit to spend in the Wii Shop Channel, where you can buy things such as new channels (only internet channel is charged AFIK), and Virtual Console titles.

    4) I'm really not to sure on this. They had the rights to go so far as put up the Donkey Kong Country titles (all of which were developed by Rare), but it's speculation as to why titles such as Goldeneye, DK64, and the likes of Banjo-Kazooie.

    Cool...so i will get the adapater for the net side of things. I learnt about not buying official memo cards from the PSP lol. I really hope Goldeneye makes it onto Virtual Console as in my eyes it was the greatest FPS of all time.
