Basicly nintendo have issued patents in japan for a massive new type of online service allowing thousands of people to compete online with each other at once, this is designed to run on current gamecube hardware. could you imagine a 50 player mario kart gp series? or knowing that everyone you bump into on thps5 is a real person somewhere around the world? and just think of the rpg possibilities, i've never been a lover of online games, but these just sound TOO GOOD to miss out on .
