So it's come to my attention that you can actually play boardgames online with an XBOX 360 - Settlers of Catan, Carcassone, and Ticket to Ride (among, possibly, others). This is pretty tempting to me - I think it'd be fun to be able to boot up and play a game from time to time.

But I've not really been paying attention to the latest generation of consoles, and I'm pretty sure there's a couple different versions of the XBOX 360 that I could buy. Anyone able to answer:

1) Which components do I need to have in my 360 so I can buy games online and download them to play? I understand that the boardgames aren't on disc, you buy them online.

2) Will I need to buy a membership in the XBOX 360 online thing? Or will the default connectivity be fine?

3) Does the xbox talk with wireless, or will I need to snake a wire to it to connect to the internets?

4) What don't I know to ask about?

Thanks a lot.

So, it's been a while, I've noticed, since I've bought a full-price RPG manual from an actual roleplaying book store. It's a little bit of a shock - similar to a Catholic suddenly realizing that he hasn't been to confession for four months, even though he's been to bible study twice a week. :)
