"@RichIGN Nintendo confirms Nintendo Network for 3DS/Wii U, individual accounts coming to Wii U. Story soon."

Just saw IGN's Richard George tweet about this. Hopefully we'll have some more details shortly!

They've confirmed that it's just a rebranding of Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.

Could be PR double-talk until they do a fancy reveal. Otherwise why would IGN's editor be talking up like he knows it's something more?
plz no IGNorant jokes thx.

Nice! It looks like Nintendo are quickly catching up to MS and Sony in terms of online services. Of course they still have some distance to go, but it's great that Nintendo understands that online capabilities are becoming more and more important nowadays.

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.

It's a shame my Internet doesn't seem to like online games these days.
Never been able to play Mario Kart 7 properly online while at home, and I couldn't even play a game of Boom Street with an Ethernet cable plugged in.
Really gotta try to do something about that before more big online games start coming. D:

catching up to 2006 maybe. i don't see anything a out cloud storage or non gaming content.

but still glad to see the communities features will be at an OS level. xbox live already does something similar but the nintendo one sounds closer to steam groups.

Maybe a little more to 2009 (neither Xbox LIVE nor PSN. were able to handle downloadable retail games at the time).

Maybe it's just me, but it's understandable that Nintendo caught up a little late since they, as a company, didn't have much experience with the internet while Sony and Microsoft had Sony Online Entertainment, Microsoft Windows, and more. Nintendo, on the other hand, tried many things (i.e. hanafuda cards, food, love hotels, video games, etc.), except the internet. Plus, the other two companies sell stuff other than game consoles.

What. Nintendo's experiments with hanafuda cards, food, love hotels finished when it started doing the video games thing. It's been almost exclusively focused on video games for the past 25+ years. Making hanafuda cards had nothing to do with the company missing the online trend.

A company has a responsibility to recognise market trends, and respond to them. There's no sugar coating it, and there's no excuses; Nintendo was slow with online. Fingers crossed it has it right this time, but this is something that Nintendo should have done a good three years ago.

Or sometimes a company creates a new market that previously didn't exist. There are many examples:

Apple

  • iPod, which revolutionized music players and portable entertainment devices
  • iPad, which resurrected the tablet market and made it mainstream
  • iTunes and the App Store, which brought digital distribution of music and apps/games to the mass market

Microsoft

  • Xbox Live, which popularized online gaming and digital distribution on consoles

Valve

  • Steam, which introduced an Xbox Live-style digital gaming platform to the PC market

Nintendo

  • Game Boy, which introduced the concept of a portable gaming system that had interchangeable game cartridges
  • Nintendo DS, which made touchscreen gaming popular a few years before the iPod Touch

There are many more examples, but those are the most obvious gaming-related ones.

What the hell does any of that have with Nintendo failing to respond to the online trend for so long?

"Nah, we're not gonna do that" =/= being innovative.

I was commenting on your first sentence, "A company has a responsibility to recognize market trends...". I should have separated it from the rest of your paragraph. But hey, thanks for doing your best to prove me wrong again. :|

Your comment had absolutely nothing to do with what I said at all, actually. My comment was in relation to Nintendo and online. It was quite clearly about that.

You took what I said and pulled it so far out of context that it's ludicrous. I know you like to do that in discussions, but please, stay focused Tendoboy :|
