Technically the NES was online. In Japan at least. The Famicom had a fax machine or something that could be used with it. I don't remember exactly what it was.

They did a good job of making the angst and trolling seem like real life.

Was that the weird satellite device they could broadcast games on?

Yes, but it was for the Super Famicon (SNES). One was recently put up on eBay. The idea at the time was at certain times of the day, different games could be played. The issue was you couldn't save and once the clock hit 00, the game vanished. . .

The NES had its very own Pachter. He was called Paul Valentine. Was the go-to 'expert' for video game business news. He managed to be wrong every time but once IIRC (and that one time was I think he said sales were going to hold steady and they did).
