    Nintendo's been online for years...

    I'm not sure if theres a thread about this already so Im just going to post anyway.

    I have heard alot of people saying that the DS and Wii are nintendos first attempts and puting their systems online. The truth is nintendo has had everyone of their consoles with some kind of online capability (yes even NES called famicom in japan) even though you could only get the extra hardware in japan, I have played N64 online and I was one of the only people I knew that had the GCN online (only had 2 games that used it) So I just thought I'd bring up the subject and open any disscusion for it, cause alot of people are ignorant to the fact that nintendo was the FIRST to have any console online, heck they even had a diskdrive for NES,SNES and N64 too... So did the PSX

    There was a service for the Atari 2600 that included a cartridge that connected to your phone line. You could download and play games (they would be gone when you turned the power off though). No additional functionality though (multiplayer online or anything like that).

    Here it, it was called Gameline: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gameline

    Interestingly enough, the guys who did that eventually created America Online.

    You'd think they'd be better at it by now.

    Well now Very Interesting! again its like a sega channel but wow, that had to be the first form of online gaming. I wonder how long it took to D/L those tiny atari games. I had a 2600 and when I was younger I could'nt get why my 2600 would'nt play atari 3200 games! and I still wonder why the 3200 never got more popular than the 2600, it might be because the nintendo came out in 1986? i think... I had mario bros for 2600 man I wish I still had it I bought it for 50 cents at a flea market. Now i could've probably sold it for 10 times that!

    the super nintendo's disc drive was never released.
    it was made in part with sony
    and that's how the playstation came about.
    the super nintendo disc drive came out as the Philips PS-I which was the worst console ever made.

    Well do you?
