That is a really bad pun

After trying out the DC's modem and web surfing capabilites, I hope to GAWD that Nintendo's is better. According to Datamonitor there will be a Sh*!load of people using consoles to surf the net. This is good news for people that are lovin' online gaming or the concept of being able to do this with the Dolphin. Thanks to GameDaily for the word.

In a report by Market Analyst Datamonitor, it is predicted that by the year 2004, 45 million online gamers will be using Internet-enabled consoles, compared with 28 million people playing games online with PC's. In its report, entitled Online games and gambling in Europe and the U.S., 1999-2004, Datamonitor stated, there would be 165 million consoles in the U.S. and Europe by 2003, at which time the games-software market will be worth $17.2 billion with the console market would accounting for $12 billion, while the PC market would account for $5.2 billion.
