I'm just wondering how the Miiverse works, as the title says.

I've heard that u add other friends through the miiverse and it sounds a bit weird. I imagine it's like starting an app just to add a friend, while u just use the PS-button on the ps3. Does it work well, or is it just lame... Could they have done it easier?

Basically a forum, but it's integrated with games.

Lots of censorship here...

It's like Facebook meets Twitter.

This is a signature.
I mentioned signatures, which makes this a meta-signature,
A meta-signature mentioning meta-signatures is a meta-meta-signature.
Hence, this signature is infinitely meta. Does Meta-Knight have a self-awareness of his own name?

I find it a bit cumbersome, though... That's why I'm asking. I prefer to just type the nicknames I want to add instead of finding the person on Miiverse or whatever.

Imagine this situation: You play Black Ops 2 against someone you want to add, and instead of go add that guy in-game or typing his name, u have to start a brand new app called Miiverse? I can't understand why this solution is the best. Or am I wrong?

The Nintendo Network ID is universal so you only have to add the person once for all of your games. You go to MiiVerse and find them on there and then send a friend request, they accept and then you're done. Later they're going to add mobile versions of it so you can add someone or look at your feeds etc while you're out and about. Whatever the case it's certainly better than the 3DS solution and it's miles ahead of how the Wii/DS worked.

A very positive step.

That's a sure thing! Way better than the Wii solution, and I understand the point that u only have to add him once. But what I really asked for (I'm gonna formulate better) is how quick it takes to find someone ingame, untill u have added him? Is it a quick process?

Miiverse is really cool, but very unorganized if you ask me. But then again the Wii U JUST came out, so I expect it to change as time moves on, with more convenience.

@ahaug1: There's a function to search for someone using their Nintendo Network ID on Miiverse, if I remember correctly. Just type it in and search.

But why do u have to search for someone, when it's simply as just type their nickname to add them? That's my point...
Drop search - only type, that's the solution

@ahaug1: That's what I said. You type their name in and the search brings up their profile so you can add them. It's pretty simple.

@GameLord08 I know what u say... And what I say is that they should drop the searching, which is lame. It's like shooting a headshot on Call of Duty and you get the question afterwards: "You got a headshot! Do you want it or not? Yes or no"

When you're already typing their name, why do u have to search and THEN add them, instead of typing their name and just add them. I don't think u understood me right, gamelord.

@ahaug1: Because that's the standard way of adding people on social networks since, like, forever... It's pretty much the universal standard, which is why I was surprised at your question.

What if you type their name in wrong? What if there're multiple users with similar names? What if you add the wrong person? What if they've deleted their account or been banned? That's why a search mechanic is used.

@GameLord08 And you're wrong. This isn't the standard way of adding people. I made some good examples right there, and that was ps3. You hit "add a friend" (or something, whatever), type their name and "add". The other guy accept the request.

Do you know the difference between facebook and usernames? Well, facebook doesn't use nicknames, which means u have to search for people, because the results often ends with people with the same name. Nicknames are used because u can't make a name which is identical as an other. Then u can't add a wrong person. And if u type their names wrong doesn't support your thoughts about the search mechanic.

It is the standard way of adding people. It's how you follow people on twitter, find people on facebook, add a skype contact, friend someone on steam or last.fm or whatever. You search and then add once you're sure it's the right person. Really I don't understand what you're complaining about.

@skywake That's what seperates facebook from gaming! Omg.. u don't search after real names when you're going to add people, because the only names u get are the nicknames which is used ingame. I wasn't complaining in the beginning, just critical, but I start feeling u're trolling with me.

How can u say it's the standard way of adding people? It sounds like you've never played ps3 or something. You don't search! If someone's name is Supermariofan007, then there are no other names which are identical, and that's why the simpliest way to add that guy is to type Supermariofan007. U have no clue what his real name is, but it sounds like u don't get it. I'm not stupid, I know how I find people on facebook/twitter and so on, but facebook/twitter is far from a gaming console.

I guess you're just fanboys who accept everything Nintendo would come up to.

I didn't say you searched for real names. You search for whatever and it comes up with a list of users closest to your search and you pick the correct one. Same way you add people on skype, facebook, twitter, steam and so on... even when, as it often is on all of those bar facebook, they aren't using their names. You search, you see their avatar along with a list of others, you click "friend" and it's done. It's one extra tap that helps you avoid accidentally adding some random, I don't see what the problem is.

I don't have a Wii U so I don't know how it works.... but that's how it's worked for every social network in the history of social networks as far as I know. Including steam.

@ahaug1: You're complaining about one of the most trivial things I've ever discussed, and you're actually starting to amuse me.

First of all, it is the standard way on social networks. You only named one example of a platform that deviates from this standard, and that's the PS3 - and we all know the PS3's online facility is nothing like Miiverse or any social network. Even true PC gaming networks such as Steam and Xfire use this method. Argument debunked.

Secondly, there's a reason you need to search for people on a network first, not just add them directly. If you get the name wrong, you'll either get nothing or the wrong person. It's even said so here. You can't just send a request blindly by typing in a name without searching first - not everybody has a photographic memory.

Case closed.
