Nintendo Enthusiast: A few years ago it would have been unthinkable to praise Nintendo in the online sphere of gaming. But things have really changed for the better recently and look even more promising for the future.
LOL. How can we say they are dominating if the WiiU is not even out yet? Wait for the release, Nintendo Enthusiast.
Umm... we don't know... we haven't seen the Nintendo Network yet...
How old is that kid? I never thought of the Wii U pad being huge (to my perspective) but to him is huge
>Nintendo >Dominant in online services hahahahahahhahahahaa. Sorry nintendo fanboys, but Xboxlive is still the king.
Tell me why xboxlive is the king. I paid less for PSN Plus and I was able to play (and finish) several games for free like Infamous 2, Little Big Planet, Just Cause 2, Darksiders etc. Please, don't throw useless features in my face, I want to use consoles to play games and PSN Plus is a better value for my money. I want to see your reasons for why xbox live is better. @ChunkyLover53 I agree with you but I want to see reasons for why xboxlive is a better value for a gamer. People is always saying that and I want to know why he said xboxlive is king.
Its just his opinion, he's entitled to it just as much as you are. No sense in arguing about it on some stupid forum.
to each his own bro im in the same boat i feel like paying for xbox live isn't worth it but theirs others who think differently
@Hisiru people wont ever list the reasons why. they will always just say its opinion when its only because they need to warrant their reason to paying. live does absolutely nothing better than psn. a 512MB download (Dust:elysian tale) took an hour to download while my ps3 downloads 2-3 gig games in 40 minutes. crossgame chat has its uses, but bnot 60$ worth. o well. ur still evil Hisiru lol. u and ur unblock/block me while messaging me haha its sorta funny
LMAO i wish they would, but the closest thing your gonna get to for online services from nintendo is pokemon battles!
What kind of load or volume capabilities does Nintendo servers have? And how many? I think only Google and a few others have as many (high tech) server farms so you could be right.
Nintendo already said there online network won't be as good as PSN or XBL, so no.
No... but I hope they figure it out soon. Even though I don't really care for online multiplayer, they have a lot of work to do before I'd say they are proficient with it.
If Nintendo did I can see them winning back much of their core gamers that have moved on to MSFT and Sony. They just need to work around their competition having strong business partners and the fact Nintendo not owning or investing in markets outside of the gaming industry heavily. If Nintendo can partner with a strong software partner they could work around the issue. A few new mature hardcore franchises with Solid online and Nintendo would rule the way they did in the past after proving they could sustain this for more than a generation. Beating a software company with infrastructure generations ahead might be a challenge or beating a company with unmatched hardware experience(not saying another company can't do a job as well as MSFT in online gaming or that Sony makes the best hardware)
All I can imagine is a service equal to PSN and Xbox live.
