TiVo And Google Maps Functionality For Wii U Hit By Delay
Posted by Damien McFerran
Both slip from January to "early 2013"
TVii is one of the Wii U's biggest selling points in North America, but the service hasn't had the best of starts. It didn't launch with the machine and wasn't up and running until December. Even then, it lacked TiVo - something that Nintendo insisted would be coming this month.
It now turns out that TiVo integration is going to take a little longer to arrive - Nintendo has given a vague release "early 2013".
Google Maps and Google Street View have also been hit with a delay - the two services are being adapted to work on the Wii U GamePad, but they've now slipped to "first quarter of 2013". Nintendo originally stated they would be available in January.
While it's a shame that these features have been delayed, we'd rather they be ready before they get pushed out to the public.
