just a general question. ive never played a console through online play; xbox, playstation, wii (if it even has it). so im just wondering, is there ever any lag like in PC games? does it rely heavily on your internet speed? thanks.

Depends on what system you're asking about. PS2 had some titles with lag, 360 games sometimes start with lag until they are updated i.e. Saint's Row. Not sure about PS3 and Wii doesn't have any online games YET. If you have broadband you should be ok. Sometimes if you play people that are all from Europe and your from the U.S. you may seem a little in some games. Again it all depends on which system and game.
