    I'm debating between 360 and a Wii, and these questions will help me decide.

    Do I need to buy anything else extra to access online?

    and

    Do I need a credit Card to register online?

    thanks in advance

    All I know is that the Wii can have wireless internet, but you can buy a cable at places where they sell Wii.....maybe.

    If you have a wireless router, that's all you'll need to get a Wii online.
    You have to pay a small amount to download the web browser and any Virtual Console games you want, but you don't have to use a credit/debit card for that if you don't want to - Wii points can be bought in shops.
    Playing Wii games online is free.

    So basically.. All I need to do it.. buy the cable to play my Wii online?

    Probably a stupid question.. but what are Wii Points? Is it like.. "Wii money" you use to buy web browser and games?

    [I'd search sites for this information, but Im sick right now.. and can't do to much ><]

    yes wii points allow you to download old games and software (aka an internet browser) and you dont need a cable unless your router isnt wireless.

    Wii has built in wi-fi but does NOT have an ethernet jack for a wired connection. You need the LAN Adapter that connects to one of the Wii's USB ports. The you plug the cable into that. A cable by itself would be useless.

    You don't need too download/pay for anything from the shopping channel, to use the "internet connection". If you want to use the Internet Browser, you need to pay 500 Wii points(value of 5$, minimum purchase online from the wii is 10$ 1000 Wii points).

    You can buy Wii points with a credit card on the shopping channel, or pay 20$(plus tax) for 2000 Wii points card from local game stores.
