Yup, I remember it being around when I was a kid. Around 1994 or 1995 I think. Quite expensive though, so I never been in it. But then again, all the online game services back then (Compuserve, AOL, GEnie) were damn expensive. And very limited too.. paying for one doesn't mean you can play games on another system.
Red Baron certainly wasn't turn based. And I think the MMORPG on it wasn't either. But games back then barely took up more than 2 MB, so there's not much data to worry about lag.

NES could go ONLINE?
Tell me about it? WHAT could it do. HOW could it go online? It's not like there is any socket for a phone cable or any shit so how was that even possible?
I just can not imagine it.
I also cant imagine it had a cartridge with any web browser or could do IRC or...anything.
So I would love to have some information on this, please.
I know you could do Internet with the SNES. Wikipedia says:
Japan saw the release of the Satellaview, a modem which attached to the Super Famicom's expansion port and connected to the St. GIGA satellite radio station. Users of the Satellaview could download gaming news and specially designed games, which were frequently either remakes of or sequels to older Famicom titles, released in installments. Satellaview signals were broadcast from April 23, 1995 through June 30, 2000. In the United States, the similar but relatively short-lived XBAND allowed users to connect to a network via a dial-up modem to compete against other players around the country.
alright now ive seen it all. the NES IS THE best console. it had it ALL!
in fact it even had a DDR mat before DDR was big and popular. like 10 years before people even KNEW DDR. this is why the NES is the BEST console ever made. it just has EVERYTHING and was the first to have all those features.
edit: okay i looked at the remote control and i would say the famicon wasnt able to do internet but display TELETEXT pages. do you agree?
