Nintendo's upcoming Wii game console has generated lots of positive press in the past year due to its motion sensing controller and how Wii games are taking advantage of it. Not everything is certain to work out for this new venture. There's still some question as to whether or not the controller will be a hit among consumers, or yet another gimmick that will turn off both hardcore gamers and the new audience that Nintendo is trying to provide.
However, an even bigger issue about the Wii is still a question mark, even inside Nintendo itself. That is the question of online play for the console. It's something that Sony and Microsoft put into the PS2 and Xbox (although they activated it well after those console's releases). Microsoft's Xbox 360 had online multiplayer and other online features out of the box when it launched in 2005 and Sony's PS3 is expected to do the same when it launches in this country on Nov. 17 (although Sony has remained tight lipped about specifics concerning its PS3 online network).
