But the point being, I shouldn't have to get online to play with people in the same room. For one thing, it's a whole bunch of extra interface you shouldn't have to deal with.
Also, the newer systems all have built in modem support, and whatnot, but the older systems don't. If I go over a buddies and want to hook up on his PS2 to play multiplayer games, and he doesn't have the modem and i do, but didn't bring it, or maybe he doesn't have an internet connection there, because he uses wireless, or maybe just doesn't have a close internet port, then what? Nothing.
