George Harrison recently said that Nintendo has no immediate plans to move into the world of online gaming. A lot of people are saying this is a mistake and that nINtenDo ARe TeH sUx0r. These people are morons.

If Microsoft and Sony are happy to invest loads of money in online gaming then good for them! Meanwhile Nintendo are saving themselves a load of cash and preparing to join in when and if it turns out there's actually a market for it. My experience of online console gaming (various games on the Dreamcast) is that after the initial novelty wears off it's a load of crap.

Fair play to Nintendo for not bowing to peer pressure and instead waiting to see if something worthwhile can be done - history shows that being first to market with a hot new concept/product is not a guarantee for success.
