I recently bought a Wii after not having a gaming console for years, and am a little confused as to how the online system works. With the Xbox/PS3 you have your own account for online use, usually with a username. With the Wii, there doesn't seem to be an online username or account. The only account I signed up for was Club Nintendo, but I'm assuming that's a different thing. With the Wii shop channel, they just need your credit card, no account... I have yet to play a game online with someone, so maybe it walks you through something at that point...but I just wanted some sort of explanation...thanks.
