Who cares! Online gameplay is not what the wii was intended for. Yeah it would be cool if wi-fi was as good as live but then you would have to pay for it. Call me old but I bought a wii b/c I wanted to relive my past with the VC and play new Mario, Zelda, and Metriod. I bought a 360 for all of my online gaming needs. I look at wi-fi as a bonus on the wii. So make some real life friends b/c the wii has got great games that actually make you interact with real people.
