How could anyone touch online play until have played quite a bit of the single player stuff. I mean that is how you unlock things so you are going to have to do it anyways. I'm not saying im not going to pop it in at midnight march 9th and not play an online game or two, but i think smashing with the buddies around me and smashing through the single player stuff will take up quite a bit of time. Now i will say probably six months to a year down the line i will be smashing alot online and by alot i mean the majority of my play time will be online. But, thats how i always go about online gaming its just there to make the replay value of a game longer.
