Getting rid of xbox live in favour of online play on the wii? Whatever is best for you, but that comment made me laugh. To me, the xbox online service is far superior.

Without getting into some kind of forum war over a console yes that is what i said,we dont play together much and i cant be bothered playing online as much as i used to so i would save £40.00 a year,and me and my girlfriend can still have our gaming sessions and i can still play my xbox,it's a winner surely

Re: Online Gaming With The Wii

I can fully sympathise with online gaming with your girlfriend - make her feel "involved" without actually having to bother seeing her  Lips are sealed
What (good) online games are there for Wii?

I see my girlfriend regulary but i dont live with her,its good to be able to play a game with her now and then though,to be honest i only got the wii a couple days ago but a quick glance at this list of online games for the wii  http://www.nintendo.co.uk/NOE/en_GB/games/all_games_1955.html?cb_wifi=true

Re: Online Gaming With The Wii

Will say that the wii online gaming is somewhat nicer than the Xbox for a few reasons.
1. It's free.
2. It's designed to be kid friendly and tends to be very open to new players.
3. It has a wide mix of Games so finding something to enterntain should be quite easy.
Down Side.
1. Doesn't have any guarantees on connection quality.
2. Some of the lobby systems on the games are a little inconsistent, I.E Mario kart, etc.
3. The friend system doesn't follow logically, you register a friend's console, you'll still need to register their unique number in mario kart as well, and that per license(hence above comment.)
It's a shame, thats what seems to be letting Nintendo down.
in abstract, all I've tried of the Xbox and PS3 ones seems to be a very integrated solution.
Maybe that's just my expierience.
