Soon, but I don't think that Nintendo plans on putting a large emphasis on online play this console generation.  They were the only company without an online-enabled game at launch, after all.  This is probably the main reason that I prefer the 360 to my Wii, but both are good.

Nintendo IS going to focus on online play. Nintendo said they are going to have lots of online games.

If you check out the upcoming releases I believe I saw "Blazing Angels" listed as having 16 player online. Don't know if they are still planning on having it in the game or not. Here's the link

I don't the original Xbox didn't have online at launch. but now they're online has been a huge focus. I don't see y it wouldn't be the same with the Wii. altho this is mainly me hoping, but I see a high possibility that nintendo will finally embrace the online community with this console.
