to be fair the same is true of things like a web browser or Netflix but the system is 2 and a half years now and selling like hot cakes still without them, Nintendo knows they've got those aces up their sleeves for when there is a dip in sales.

True but they're already starting to run out of well-known NES games so I don't think it'll be too much longer.

It's been a long time coming. I really wish Nintendo would kick their online service into high gear with something crazy, chat! Imagine what that would be like! Lol. In all seriousness, I am excited for the SNES games. But I do wish they'd join modern gaming with on system group chat.
