    Hey Guys,

    Im a bit new to all this online gaming stuff as the nintendo Wii is the first console iv had which you can do it on, so i just have a few questions:

    Can you do online gaming with Wii Sports?

    And when do you know if you can play online or not, is it normally like another option when starting the game?

    Any help of details or instructions on how to play online would be great.

    Cheers

    Andy

    OK if you dont already know online gaming isnt on the Wii at the moment. When the time is right Nintendo will send you an update for your Wii and you can update it, that is if you have a connection. You proably won't be able to play Wii Sports, actually I dont think you can play any launch games online.

    Ah cool, i never went to uni, however loads of my mates did so i just lived their life style at the weeknds, they got me a student card aswell so cheap beer at the union was always nice.

    Yea i decided to miss the rush in the morning and go in at about 10am, got zelda with mine aswell which is amazing starting to get a bit harder now iv done quite alot of it.

    Yeah i do hope the online gaming comes soon, done call of duty on my mates xbox 360 and its amazing.

    Yeah CoD does look good on xbox live, wouldn't mind having a 360 one day to play that - although I used to play quite a lot of games online on my PC (Battlefield 2 mainly) and I loved that, not sure how much I'd like playing a game like that on a console :rolleyes:

    Yeah student cards are always good!... wish I still had one! :(

    Nintendo has pretty much made it clear that you will not be able to play any of the launch titles online.....EVER.

    Thats not good, i reckon wii sports online would be quite good, especially like play golf against you mate or something.

    saying that nintendos games always get better and better so im not complaining that much, i cant wait for mario galaxy that should be amazing.

    Darryl i know what you mean about wanting an Xbox just for CoD, from my experience other games on it arnt that good but that did blow me away a bit.
