    I never knew gc was suppose to have online play. HAs nintendo said for sure 100%, no doubt that Wii will have it. B/c i would be really upset if i bought it and they say No online play. i am really looking foward to that.... Has nintendo said There will be online play? I heard January its suppose to come out.. Is that true?

    Yes, and that was a stupid question. Both the DS and Wii will have online play. Please search the forums before asking.

    I can't imagine why not Hey just look at the DS. I think this was a ploy to see if their fans(Nintendo) are going to imbrace this idea. And I believe the tribe has spoken.

    It took about a year for DS online to finally happen, hopefully the Wii will have it sooner

    The Wii already has online play. The GC didn't have WiFi built in, so you would have needed a LAN adapter. The servers for wii just arent up until launch.

    It will have online play but I wouldn't put any money on it being good. It will probably be **** like Playstation online. If your looking for good online play get an Xbox.

    It does? What launch games will YOU be playing online? The ones you made in your head. Becuase 3rd party developers don't even have access to the content needed to make a game online capable until January of '07. Meaning if it takes a developer ONLY 6months to add the online component or to build a game around it... then the first 3rd party game we will see with online play won't be until Mid 2007 at the very least. This is all based on Nintendo hold to their promise and release the online components to developers in January... if not... we won't see an online title for even longer. I'm telling you guys, Nintendo better get with it. Online play is what makes games not only fly off shelves but makes them have that lasting factor.

    Well it might not be as bad as Playstation's but it will never compare to Xbox Live.

    It is HARD to compare to XBox live. IMO the best online gaming community ever.

    lol you've obviously never played a Multiplayer PC game.

    I'm a big Nintendo fan, tho I do have a ps2 and have played XBox online and believe me NONE of the consoles' online play comes anywhere near PC online play. And we are talking a different league here. Console online play is like sunday league football compared to the PC's premiership league.

    Xbox live better than pc online multiplayer? lmao, that's why poor highschoolers play xbox online, and adults play pc games online.

    Ok, Nintendo did invest some time into emulators. That's why we have the virtual console working as good as it does. Some of that technology is also for online play, like Kaillera, and MAME. Nintendo also set up a deal with fileplanet to host servers. Does this mean virtual console games multiplayer online? It's completely possible. But... the Wii users would be the hosts, like Star Craft on battlenet. The question is will Nintendo do this? If they want to remain #1 they will need an online gaming community. Online play has been Nintendo's weakness for many years. We'll find out in January either way.

    It may also be possible later to put stuff like Zbattle into your Wii. So even if Nintendo ditches the concept, it's still possible for people to find their own way. Right now all we can do is wait and hope they learned from their mistakes.

    I am betting (hoping) that Metroid will be the first online game for the Wii in the US

    We will all have to watch closely to see how Pokemon online play works out when it is released on 12/15 in Japan.
