@LordTendoboy It could happen. But they can't change any of the features since that would be unfair to people who bought the previous batch of copies. It says "Connecting to Nintendo Network" on the JP and EU versions of the game. In NA, it only says "Connecting to the Internet". :| Very exciting message going online... :D

Hmm... Well Iwata and Reggie will reveal all we need to know at E3 (hopefully sooner, but I doubt it).

I am so hyped for E3. I can't wait to see if Microsoft unveils the next Xbox and Kinect 2.0, what Sony's plans are for the PS3 and Vita, and Nintendo's full reveal of the Wii U. It's going to be amazing.

Indeed it is going to be amazing. :)

Now I'm wondering if Nintendo is going to rename the 3DS eShop to "Nintendo Network Shop".

I know Sony has plans for that with the Vita, but you just download the digital version from PSN for a small fee. :(

if im able to do that with all my DS and 3DS games, I wouldnt mind paying a few bucks per game so that I can keep my progress and game with me FOREVER

No! That sounds boring and unatractive.

I like the sound of Nintendo eShop; it has a nice ring to it... It would be fine though :)

I could care less about accounts and all that... the real news here is NFC / near-field communications.

What is it? That tech which allows you to place a device within a few inches of something like a card or other item and have data be transfered instantly. It allows the kind of smart credit cards that can simply be tapped onto a surface instead of sliding with the magnetic strip.

What will Nintendo do with this, now that they are incorporating it into the Wii U controller?

By installing this functionality, it will become possible to create cards and figurines that can electronically read and write data via noncontact NFC and to expand the new play format in the video game world.

Oooh, just think of the possibilities.

Something like those Skylanders figures that transfer data wouldn't need a platform; you'd just tap them onto the Wii U controller for a moment and they would transmit the data.

But more importantly, this opens up a whole lot of board-game possibilities. You could create better hybrid games that use the system alongside real cards or other items, and you wouldn't have to scan these cards or have them recognized by a camera (e-Reader,etc). With NFC, you could just tap the card to the controller in order to initiate an action.

I sure do hope this means more board game ideas coming onto the Wii U, and more interactions that go beyond the television.

Twitter is a good place to throw your nonsense.

Yeah, tha NFC thing was awesome. One of the coolest things in Japanese arcades are these games where you go and buy packs of cards (a little like Magic the Gathering), and then you take those cards, sit at a table, and put the cards down on the table. That "summons" the unit in the arcade game, allowing you to move them around, strategy style. Then the unit gets experience, which is saved back to the card.

It was freaking awesome fun, and I could see the Wii U doing a whole lot of that.

Japan gets the most awesome toys and tech. Hopefully this new feature is used well, not just by Nintendo, but by ALL developers.

I think it would happen, because the NN is going to be a high layer network that could give several options of services, and the eshop and future shop of the wii U would be just another 2 services running over that network, even Iwata inselft says that

Do you think Nintendo will link our Club Nintendo accounts to Nintendo Network? It would make keeping track of purchases and downloads much easier, especially if your system gets repaired or replaced.

The funny thing is, someone replied:
"* Sony and Microsoft make motion controls *
Welcome to 2006, Microsoft and Sony."
To whoever posted the original comment:

If the 3DS has not been discontinued SM3DL and MK7 are awesome games, but if the 3DS has been discontinued Sony has taken over the world.It is not true that both Sony has taken over the world and SM3DL and MK7 are not awesome games.Therefore:Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7 are awesome games.

Well they might just rework Club Nintendo into the Nintendo network. Making one location for everything. Don't be surprised if you see any announcements on the site about that happening
