    Online Yes or No

    Is it worth getting Broadband just to go online on the nintendo wii? If so why?

    Does wii online compare to xbox live? ( anyone who loves x-box go to youtube and search 'hitler x box live account banned'. It was helarious even though i don't like them. Warning contains some really foul language. Please no one take offense from it.)

    Xbox Live is superior compared to the Wii and PS3... downloads, games, features really make Live the best. In my opinion I would get broadband for both the Wii and my PC, getting it for only the Wii is not worth the money.

    Not really. You miss some of the addon things like having your friends miis appearing, the Virtual Console, erm? The weather chanel.. .. but really, at the moment, probably not worth it. Although, how are you on this forum? Dial up or broadband from somewhere not your home??

    Wii online does compare to XBLA - everyone ever who has commented says the wii's online offering is pants in comparison. But it is free.

    Short and to the point.
    But seriously, I don't think that any console will be able to beat Xbox Live at the moment, so unless you are planning on using your Xbox to get online, I would not get a broadband connection just for the Wii.

    I've been told that the Xbox 360 lacks an Internet browser? So sure while Live is superior to the Wii Shop Channel by far however the Wii DOES make a decent Web TV device. Now that the Internet Channeli browser is updated to support a USB keyboard it is now at least somewhat useful.

    While some may consider the lack of full network usage a waste however most broadband users still don't go too far past using it just for faster web browsing, game support, and recently now VOIP. I suggest you consider what you currently use the Internet for and what you expect to get out of it if your connection was faster, then evaluate the possibilities and decide if it's worth it to you.
