Yes, all you need is a wireless internet connection. You cant use your old cartridges but you can buy old games online for $5 and it will save the game onto your Wii. You can also download SNES, N64, Turbographix16, Sega and a few other games too.

You do not need a wireless connection...

To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus, and a clown killed my dad.

It would be cheaper since you have to buy the damn wired nic card for it.

30 for the card or 30 for a wireless router for your laptop etc.

Old as in how old? It'd backwards compatible - meaning you can play your Gamecube games on it. You can't, however, use your remote and nunchuck on old games.
