    More stuff to come. Microsoft and Sony had similar start offs. It's up to Nintendo how big they want to make this. Hopefully Nintendo will finally overcome their greatest weakness.

    Ah, I see what you mean. Still, that would have meant we all had to wait an extra 5 months for our lovely Wiis

    Also, I think the timing of the Wii's launch probably contributed quite a bit to its success, and if it had only launched now, once online games are ready for release, things may have gone the other way, with the PS3 sold out and the Wii getting dusty on shelves.

    I suppose they could have tried hard to get online games available at launch, but chances are that rushing them out like that would have taken much of the polish away (at least, I'm hoping for polish.)

    If Nintendo makes their virtual console games online playable. Nintendo will have a second massive consumer frenzy. I think X-box live put the 360 on the map.

    Online is the thing with the new systems, my friend wants to sell his Wii now becuase he cant play games online, I really cant blame him he'a a alround gamer and the Wii lacks online which I think it should have right now (if it did I'd be playing my Wii right now), but at the same time since its Free I can wait until the summer to play Metriod and Mario Strikers online.
