Do you play video games online?

posted by Dr. Zoidberg on - last edited - Viewed by 293 users

I was curious what with all 3 current-gen consoles, PCs, and both handhelds supporting online play in their games, how many people on this forum play video games online for multiplayer.If you do, please say what the game you play the most online is and what system it's for.I just finished a nice session of Mario Kart Wii's amazing online multiplayer.What game do you play?

  • You could always play on the PS3 for free. (no I don't have one and neither does anyone else I know but..... it's still free online)

  • @Dr. Zoidberg said: I wish microsoft didn't have a live fee.I mean look at the facts.To play online on the Xbox, you would have to buy all this stuff
    Live Gold Subscribtion:$50 per year
    Wireless network adapter:$100,
    Then you have to get a headset(I know the Go Pro addition comes with a wired one, but if you prefer wireless or your console package didn't have one, you pretty much need one to play online.)for I'm not sure how much, but more than you should be paying.

    Then on the wii all you have to do is have a wi-fi modem and you're set.You can do everyting for frii.I mean, free.Sorry.Had a breakout of umm....fanboy-ness......there....*trails off*


    The wii online has no headset, and you can't even talk to people without having their friend code. I really don't like it at all. Also I love all the extra things that Xbox has.

  • The mic for the wii was announced already thought it will be one that sits atop your tv

  • Yeah but its still is miles behind Playstation Online and Xbox Live.

  • @Dr. Zoidberg said: It doesn't really matter to me how the features stack up.All I care about is game downloading and online gaming.And the Wii has them both.I also like how the Wii comes with wireless network compatability right inside the console.So for me, it's those three features and ease of use, along with Wiispeak coming along shortly, that makes me like the Wii's online.

    P.S. PSN's being free to use is overlapped by the fact that the console is $600.

    It's not 600 anymore and it is actually a real bargain. I love my PS3.

  • I just wish they would put the ability to play ps2 games back in the ps3. I refuse to buy one without it

  • I like the service on Xbox where you can buy the old xbox games that you missed. (like Jade Empire) Also the only thing I ever use my Wii for is for the old games until nintendo makes another first party game.

    Okay, no console wars.Someone ought to make a console wars thread so people stop polluting others.Actually, I made the What Console and What Console:handhelds addition threads.I think console warriors should go to those threads.

    EDIT:I realize I myself made some console wars posts on this thread.I have now deleted them.

    Didn't mean to start a console war. Just stating how I use my wii online, to buy games from the virtual console.
