im not one for online console games, they should def. make a 1 player version.

I like that fact that it won't be Nintendo's main focus. I really don't like the way other companies are making online gaming their main focus while VERY sucky games with BAD gameplay come seeping out ever so slowly. If ANY one can make online gaming work at this point, it's Nintendo, cause they have a leveled head.

It's great for Nintendo to have the online option i also think that they shouldn't focus only on online games !!!

I just need a price drop - a reason for me to get the Cube. Would it be priced at $129 since the PS2 has dropped the price by 33%!

Nintendo is being extremely smart about this. They are waiting for the time to be right before they jump into the ring. There isn't any money in console internet gaming at the moment. They are waiting for the proper technology and userbase with modems. After that they'll have 10 pokemon online games, F-Zero online, Perfect Dark online, and anything else they can pull out of their rears.

Right now they are watching and waiting. Will anyone buy PSO with the Gamecude modem? Will the demand for online console games go up? These are the questions Nintendo has to ask itself. When the answer is yes then Nintendo will OFFICIALLY enter the online market.

Until then lets all just be happy will the great games they give us.

i think people are willing to pay no matter what, as long as the monthly price is not insane, as far as the equipment is concerned people will prob. pay no matter what the cost, as long as it is reasonable.

Nintendo will still have there games as there main focus. They're going to play it carefully. They might not go into it as much as the other companies. Expect more at E3.

Nintendo said that PSO will be the only online game for GC shown at E3. I think that there is a possibility that there may be one other online game by a third party at E3, but I'm willing bet money that there won't be more than one.
