ok cool i dont believe i ever said that Nintendo specifically told me that there was a chance of being online. yeah it was fanboys. im not a fanboy, i just love the series, and i personally thought along with most likely many others. since there was multiplayer in MP2 that there would be multiplayer in the 3rd. and since that the Wii is going to be online, MP3 would be too. youve gotten into a pointless argument with me that has gotten us nowhere.
