    Sorry if this is stupid question, but does the Wii offer online gaming similar to the Xbox 360, PS3, and DS? If so, what games will support online and how much does it cost?

    It will pretty much be like the DS online. You get exchange friend codes. There isn't much else but it's free. Online games as of now is none I believe. I'm not usre about future games but there will definitely be a good amount. I hope. Oh! Super Smash Brothers Brawl! That was said to be online. If that's true it'll be awesome.

    Yea same as the DS but with one Friend Code for the system. Currently you can send messages and view friends Mii's. No online play yet.

    Metroid Prime 3 supposedly has online play too, or it will be activated/downloaded when the system is ready. Which could work, oh, oh so well.

    Indeed...just like the DS with the code thing....no online play yet but maybe in 2007 which is a serious bummer. I think the online play will be free..well at least last time I checked.

    None of the launch titles, but Pokemon Battle Revolution, Super Mario Strikers Charged, Batallion Wars 2, and Super Smash Bros Brawl are all supposed to be online titles and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles was originally supposed to be online but SE has been tight-lipped.
