    Are there any online-games out right now, besides that "Fantasy online..." game for GC? I just picked up a adaptor and curious on what's out there or what is coming out. Anyone know?

    I don't think there's been a single solid announcement about anything supporting it other than PSO, has there? I'd love to be proved wrong on this.... :-/

    The oft-rumored "World Smash" games are the likely suspects to be revealed at E3. But right now it's just rumors

    Yeah I had heard that Nintendo at least won't be producing any online games for awhile because they think it's too early. You gotta wonder if they aren't stuck in the 8-bit days by some of the hair-brain decisions they make.

    Has anyone made a profit off of online gaming via consoles? Is there a truely profitable and viable way of doing this yet?

    I think Nintendo is doing the smartest possible thing by waiting to see how Sony and Micrsoft run their online operations and by learning from their mistakes.

    Just my thoughts.

    Online console gaming won't necessarily ever take off, which is why Nintendo doesn't want to take a loss to gain some market share. Most console gamers are much less hardcore folk than PC gamers.

    Making a good game usually adds more development time too.

    This E3, if Nintendo announces Mario Kart (the holy grail of all possible online Nintendo games) with no online capability, I think that would be a good sign that we will be waiting a long time for solid online support from the big N.
