    Any ideas when testing will start - or has it already - Ive been signed up to take part in the beta testing, but no joy in regards to actually getting online. Was over in the States a few weeks back and played SOCOM - quite good - very counter strike-ish, which keeps me happy. Any ideas when its actually going commercial ?

    thanks,

    monkey

    I believe Sony are still aiming for a 'spring' launch.

    Would be surprised if they manage a proper launch before the summer though.

    Poor planning on Sony's part considering the Cube goes online on March 7th with the awesome PSO. Not only that, you will be able to buy a dial up or Broadband adaptor, too. Well done Ninty.

    Yeah, but there aren't any other online games on the horizon for the GC.

    And as much as I love PSO, it is ancient now.

    I think Sony's online plans are more advanced overall than Nintendo's, but both are way behind MS.

    Agreed Sam, what other online games can we expect from Ninty? Could you imagine the incredible looking, new F Zero on line? That would be a dream come true!

    Don't think F-Zero will be sadly :( , but there are rumours that Mario Kart will be online. :clap:

    Nintendo are always saying that there is no profitability in online gaming though, so the rumours might all be a load of rubbish... :(

    You can get online now with PS2, you don't need to wait for the offical launch to beta test. I don't know what they are testing, it works fine :)

    I've been Online for about 6 months now....it's alright, the servers suck! Micrsoft did a much better job with the XboX. Both have their pros & cons!:cool:

    The servers got worse since more people have joined, in the early days it was great. Also all the 56k people on Socom runin things, hopefully Sony will sort this out.
