You must be forgetting that Nintendo is always at least 5 years behind when it comes to graphics or internet.
Except that was one generation, hardly "always". Especially since they were one of the firsts to incorporate online functionality.
They had online play before the PS2 and Xbox?
SNES was Nintendo's first console with online multiplayer. The NES was their first console with online functions.
Whatever s***ty dial up gimmick they had from back when the internet was a big gimmick doesn't count. --- http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v723/AJSadler/superdude-2.jpg http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u45/Speeddemon1414/Set5/superdude10294.jpg
