    Can you play people over the internet with a Wii? I spent most of last night bowling on a friends Wii and I'm really thinking about buying one for myself.

    Thanks. By the time I manage to find a Wii that is in stock at a reasonable price it will.

    Yeah, the Wii online play is a new thing I believe, unlike the Xbox where its been the idea since day 1. Wii's have built in wifi and the normal wired is a USB dongle for it.

    Re: D'oh!

    Explain that you can come over and help, but your call out rate is £50 per hour with a call out fee of £100. Add to this by stating that during school holidays it is double and then doubled again during Xmas.

    If he still wants help, let me know and I'll go over there and hit^Whelp him on my way up to Birkenhead on Sunday.

    My costs start from the moment I get into the car to start going over ... and covers my trip home too. It also does not include additional expenses that may need to be paid. I would have to purchase a range of games consoles as part of the research for this ... and since the Wii is in short supply I mayhave to use ebay to get one ... in fact I might have to put my own on to ebay so that ther eis one on ebay to buy ... I think £1000 is a reasonable price.
