    Okay so today I was doing my usual gaming news browsing around the web and found out about Xband which was a way to have online gaming with your Sega Genesis or SNES. I'm sure some of the gamers on here that played games and remember the 1990s probably remember this but I always thought that online gaming started with the Dreamcast and hit full stride with the PS2 and Xbox. This thing was way more advanced then what I thought it would have been, but I'll let you check that out. :wink2:

    So if anyone remembers this or had it let us know a little more about it and the best thing is this is not Madden related gaming content for a while (which probably means no one will even notice this thread). :D

    Here is an original promo:

    Glad you liked some of my Xband videos from YouTube. I had it for the SNES. I only played one game of Madden on it. It took FOREVER to get through! After that, I stuck with Mario Kart and NBA Jam TE.
