    So as of right now there is over 10 games that could be online.
    1) DBZ
    2) Wii SPorts
    3) Call of Duty 3
    4) Bleach (japan)
    5) Far Cry
    6) Excite Truck
    7) Need for Speed
    8) Red Steel
    9) World Series of Poker
    10) Tony Hawk

    So why is there no option for online???
    Even if they weren't ready for online they could still have the option so in 07 you could play online.

    So is this (besides Graphic's) the worst part of the Wii is that you have all these multiplayer games but no online??? Or even LAN???

    yeah i'd say the online support is probably the wii's biggest problem.

    I could tell you but i'd have to kill you
    it's just so that the online time is allowed to be perfected and why waste time putting internet on games if it isn't confimed officialy?

    There are currently no online-enabled Wii games because the game developers will not receive the online libraries 'til 2007, which by the way is like a week away. It is possible that some of the games listed above could have hidden online multiplayer options that could be unlocked by a system update, though I doubt that will happen. Soon enough there will be sequels to these games that most likely will have online play. Remember the original Xbox (not the Xbox 360) started out with games that had no online play and look how far they've gone with Xbox Live! Just wait a week and we'll start hearing of different online games coming up.

    I'd say the place Wii has been downgraded is in the Wii Channels and WiiConnect24. The Wii Channels we were promised were late and all of them that require internet access are slow; Shop Channel takes forever, Weather channel takes too long (and is somewhat wrong in it's forecasts), the Internet Channel is somewhat slow starting up and it crashes and doesn't support sites like YouTube, and we still don't have the News channel.:mad: Also, it must be said that all the channels are not controlled similarly, meaning some have scroll bars while others use the wiimote's motion and instead of setting some standards like "-" button = back, "+" button = forward, d-pad = scrolling, each is different! My beef with WiiConnect24 is that it really doesn't seem like Wii is connected at all, except when receiving notes that a certain channel is available. Nintendo said you wouldn't even know when a system update was needed, that it would be downloaded when Wii was in sleep mode and then it would be ready when the user started up their system. Seriously Xbox Live is more like WiiConnect24 than WiiConnect24 is.

    The only other place Wii got short-changed would be...in the sensor bar. Nintendo should have made it wireless-capable. What I mean by "wireless-capable" is that it would have a retractable wire and batteries inside. This way you could use the Wii to charge the sensor bar and then just press a button and the sensorbar's wire would be retracted into itself and you could easily take it over to a friend's house. Don't tell that wouldn't be cool.

    Alright, rant over. I bet Nintendo is working on most of these problems as I type.:D

    Creater of this post...

    Please give it time. It took like 2 years maybe 1 for the PS2 to become Online. Nintendo have barley had Online Games (If any) so give them some time to develop it. Like the post 2 up from this. Xbox took time so shut up and play Zelda and Red Steel until then!

    Yes even though I have to admit I'm disappointed about the online play, things are looking up. SSBB will probably jump start the Wii's online gaming.

    But by this time if you dont have a LAN on your system it shows your behind. Wii sports would be a great multiplayer game and make people that say "your get bored of in a couple of months" quite down.
    Plus I want online games since I've played the XBox live games I wanted the Gamecube to have online. If you can have a Browser, shop and forcast channel online you can a couple of games online.

    I'm pretty sure these games will go online next year and for free, it's amazing how you get so much more for the wii then you do for ps3 for so much less! :p

    i agree with the post above... i like how nintendo is all hands on interactive with the player it makes the gaming experience more real and its way cheaper than ps3.. and to add to that im not sure but can ps3 go on the internet and surf the web like myspace facebook google and any other site u want..im pretty sure it cant do that...ps3 is a waste of money unless u like good graphics..cuz ive played it i must say the graphics are good..i bet in two months or less nintendo will have the ball rolling on alot of things especially online play and i agree SSBB will prolly start it all off and i cant wait.

    im not saying these games wouldn be fun online,what i say is that a game does not have to be online to be fun.online is just an extra developers put in a game because the game itself its the core,history,gameplay ect ect.

    Since the majority of those seeking (or sought, since today is Christmas) were mothers and fathers buying for kids, I doubt the whole online enabling is necessary. Personally, if I were giving this to an 8 year old, I'd be frightened that he or she were making "Pen Pals with Mr. Foley" (Thanks Borat) Now the 360 seems geared towards the teenagers and up, while the PS3 is for people who can actually drop 1000 bucks on a decent setup. It makes sense that the latter two have online connectivity out of the box, because they're a bit more complicated than the Wii, and require more devotion (time and money wise). There it is. I'm just happy because if I suddenly need to shoot someone, I have CoD3 or GoW for the 360. Peter whats-his-name from Microsoft had it dead-on when he recommended buying a Wii and 360 and skipping the PS3 until it becomes affordable. Maybe it's me, but the whole Wii setup seems a lot more fun when the people you're playing against are in the room. The real fun is watching people frantically swinging a wand around at an imaginary tennis ball. If you're doing it alone, it seems kind of like calling a 900 number. Yeah, weird analogy.

    online is so people who dont have anyone in there personal life who will game with them, can still play multiplayer.

    Then why have a Browser and Forcast Channel??? kids dont really care about those and also the News channels not really for kids. But online gaming can be enjoyed by kids and Teens.
