They actually had an even hotter girl handing out DVDs. I didn't get a picture of her, though.

I heard about that, but isn't that a slower type of DSL?

Online gaming is really the future for consoles, Sony and Nintendo need something to compete.

the option was either a Ps2 or an xbox.... so only nintendo was missing out. if i did get it though, i'd only use it for the console they gave me... i love my cable modem too much.

actually speakeasy is a DSL provider for gamers, they don't cap anything and you can download and upload as you please but I think their cheapest plan starts at a 100 bucks per month

Well, I'd say that's more a matter of opinion. While it seems like the entirety of gaming is moving towards online stuff, recall that it's probably just the most VOCAL of gamers who are playing those. IE, since they're already interacting with other people via these games, they're going to be more willing to hit forums, web sites, do their own websites and push them hard, etc.
A lot of single-player games have just as huge a following, but it's a quieter following. There's plenty of web pages for them, but fewer discussion forums and such. There's less chatter and excitement to do with them. "WOW! Square just put out a new patch for Final Fantasy VII to correct the parts where it says 'Off course!' to 'Of course!'!!!"

Well, there will always be room for single player games, but I think anything multi-player will have an online option soon.

Computer games have been totally transformed by internet interaction, and I predict consoles will follow. Microsoft was really pushing the online thing at the TGS, and they have the resources to make it happen.

Only in America. XBox is apparently almost nonexistant in Europe and Japan, whilst Playstations and Gamecubes are plentiful.

Really? I thought Xbox was outselling Gamecube now...

I suspect they'll get a lot of sales for DOA Volleyball by itself. Xbox seemed to be the biggest by far at TGS, but maybe that's just because they have so little market share they need the advertising :)

Actually, since the release of Eternal Darkness till about now the sales of GC were surpassing PS2.

X box is pretty much a dead last system, it's packing 2 games with the system now, that's how desperate they are.

As for online console games, i'll have to agree with nintendo that it's WAY too niche to really exsist. X Box live will probably be the final nail in the X Box coffin, Microsoft is really banking on it and I seriously doubt the dividends will pay out. The fact of the matter is most households still run on 56k connections, definitely not fast enough for any game worth playing.

In the end I doubt we'll see online console gaming ever explode. tho it's still nice to play frequency online :)

ADSL is exploding right now in Japan, the prices finally came down to something reasonable. I think it really has a chance here, think of all the hundreds of thousands of EQ gamers. Not to mention Koreans dropping dead from too much gaming.

Who knows, maybe falling computer prices will kill consoles.

Of COURSE online gaming will be more popular. ESPECIALLY in Japan. Why? Online gaming is one stage removed from the social interaction of an arcade--you don't have to face people personally.
