Can you play Wii Sports online?

Asked by Supergirl (1686points) November 9th, 2008

I have been googling this and cannot find a recent response. Is there an update you can download from Wii that allows you to play first generation games online? Has anyone played Wii online?

I’ve never heard of that. I know that some games (like Mario Kart, SSBb) can play online, but the wii sports were never written (as far as I know) to be played online.

In response to your question, I just read this lengthy and detailed article at Wikipedia that specifically covered the Wii Sports game. There was no mention of any online capability for the game and I suspect that it has none. I have a Wii console plus the sports game but I have never played any Wii games online.

Wii Sports can’t be played online. Wii store classic games can’t. Only hacked emulators can be played online. I know of some hacks that let you remove a bunch of sums blocks the wii has on online gaming. But if the games don’t have programming for online play, then they can’t play online like Wii Sports. I do know that the SDK for the Wii is around 250$. So you could script up your own version. I guess that could work.

No you can’t play wii sports online. If so, my wife and daughter and I would perhaps have large gaping muscles on our wii hands and wii arms.

Social life? You mean “online” and participating does not designate a social life?
