Nintendo Gets Busy With URL Buys

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Wii U is all covered

It's common practice for big announcements to be followed up by multiple URL purchases, and Nintendo is making sure that it will have us all covered with information about Wii U's functions and capabilities. Nintendo of America has added five new URLs, which accounts for the major reveals from Sunday's pre-E3 Nintendo Direct broadcast.

The system's promised social interaction is covered by miiverse.com, miiverse.net and the original Japanese name of miiwarawara.com. As for the newly named Wii U controller, Nintendo has picked up wiiugamepad.com and wiiuprocontroller.com. These may be used nearer the time or, potentially, just kept so that cheeky internet entrepreneurs can't buy them and take advantage.

We'd like to think that Nintendo will make use of these URLs to build hype for the console. The looming E3 conference is sure to get the hype machine into gear, of course.

Facebook is enough for me. On the other hand I dont play games on it. I hope the Wii U will work with Facebook (Maybe an app on the gamepad?)

I still prefer Mii wara wara over Miiverse.

2 down, 1 to go. It's there for the taking.

I really thought Nintendo was making a huge step forward with the Miiverse, but if they don't give it a smartphone app it would be another stubborn Nintendo mistake.

@dynamikas No press release from Nintendo UK yet as it's a Bank Holiday in the UK. When the press release arrives we will surely post it :)
