    L. A. N.

    I was just wondering, if the Wii has Wifi and it has onilne capabilities (obviously), could it work with L. A. N. stuff? Like how would it connect to a router? Just wondering because I have L. A. N. parties at my house sometimes and it would be cool to play SSBB with 7 other friends (if possible).
    When you wish upon a falling star, your dreams can come true. Unless it's really a meteorite hurtling to the earth which will destroy all life. Then you're pretty much screwed no matter what you wish for. Unless it's death by meteor.

    Madness does not always howl. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "Hey, is there room in your head for one more?"

    One way to accomplish that is having everyone connect wirelessly (or through usb) to the router that would be connected to the Internet. Then you could have one person create a game and everyone else join.

    This would only be necessariy if the Wiis can't directly connect to each other either via a wire, like the Xbox link cable, or wirelessly, but I'm pretty sure I heard Nintendo say that Wii can communicate with other Wiis wirelessly, just as DSs do.

    I'm really hoping each Wii can detect and connect to other Wiis without the need for a link-cable, router, or Internet connection.

    Unfortunately, since the Gamecube didn't have any type of system-link, I'm doubting there will be 16 player Wii LAN parties, but we can hope.

    you could go online with the GC. and you could play 8-player MKDD. Ive played PSO (phantasy star online) online. it was fun. im glad the wii will be able to go online. will they charge for service?

    It will most likely be free just as playing online with the Gamecube and DS was free, but, and I really hope this isn't the case, they may charge for extra features like voice-chat and sort of go the route of Xbox Live's different memberships; Silver Member is free, but you only get access to Live Arcade and Marketplace while a Gold Member pays like $10/month and gets the ability to play the online enabled games, like Halo 2.

    you had to pay to be online with the GC. it was about $9-10.

    most likely the wifi will be like the DS were you can connect to each other without connecting to the internet, the ds has worked really well and it would be easiest to just improve slightly on the same technology that works than throw it out the window and start from scratch. I also heard the wiiconnect24 service will allow users without an internet connection to play multiplayer games and update system drivers and what not through the wifi.
    If you never try you may never fail, but you will also never succeed.
