While the Xbox Live service is already on the 6 million subscribers mark and Sony is aggressively beefing up their PlayStation Online service, what does Nintendo have to offer us?
The Mii Parade.
And Everybody friggin' votes. And of course, Mario playing bloody soccer. If things weren't bad enough, George Harrison, Nintendo VP of Marketing, had this to say about Nintendo's online strategy for the Wii:
"I'm confident there will be third-party titles with online game play by the end of the year."
To then add "our first online multiplayer title, 'Pokemon Battle Revolution,' will be out this summer."
I rest my case.
