Should the PS4 and next Xbox have their own versions of Miiverse?

Miiverse is one of the most praised features of the Wii U. And with new consoles from Microsoft and Sony likely to be revealed in 2013 Gimme Gimme Games writes about whether the next Xbox or Playstation should have their own version of Nintendo's social networking service. (Microsoft, Miiverse, Next-Gen, Nintendo, PS3, Sony, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Would home not be something similar?

Enough with the dumb avatars and what not. I just want games!
Why is that so hard for them to understand? I don't want your damn Netflix or your YouTube or your Facebook and Twitter. I just want games. That's it. More NEW IP's and a controller in my hands that doesn't involve me having to stand up and get exercise.

When I come home from work the last thing I want to do is stand up some more and flail my arms around. I want to sit on my ass.

Yea whatever you said. Wiiverse is a community where every game has its own dedicated community. You talk about how good or bad the games are, post in game pictures, and ask for help if your stuck and people will help you. Wiiverse is great regardless of how many hate the Wii U. I don't like the weak hardware at all but I really like Wiiverse.

What you're describing isn't great. It's like a tedious version of the 1994 Internet.

no1 has said its weak ? get a grip mate the wiiu has modern architecture and the clock speeds were not final i read it that since its debut the gpu clock speed almost doubled and the cpu ones tripled.

@Canary

How's it not great? It's free first of all and game videos you can stream unlike Xbox Live where you have to download most game videos. Don't you think that's a little old? You can do everything while your in a game unlike the other consoles where you have to leave the game. How do you think this is old? It's all still better than what the other consoles are offering.

They will. Or at least the 720 will. Apple and Samsung boxes will mere have Facebook and twitter.

Doesn't Sony already have it with Playstation Home?
The_Infected  +   972d ago
Can you use Playstation Home while in any PS3 game your playing? Miiverse is much different.

We'll see what changes with Home for PS4. I doubt it will be exactly the same thing PS3 has now.

no only because the wii u has in game multitasking abilities because of its dedicated 1gb of ram to the os

its guranteed the be the standard on ps4 hit ps button to enter home menu then launch home its as simple as that

next gen consoles will have at least 2x the ram wii u has making integrating these into next gen console's very easy remember its nintendo who has to play catch up sony and microsoft's respectable online platforms

ps4,vita,gaikai and home will be a force to be reckoned with next gen

There's still a playstation home?! I thought every self respecting gamer abandoned that trainwreck of loading screens, random downloads, and ways to waste money on stupid crap.

Xbox doesn't need to copy anyone when it comes to its service. The only downside is the price which I don't mind paying.

PS4 have Home
lilbroRx  +   971d ago
Home itself was a attempt to mimic Nintendo's Mii system in case you don't remember. Same with Xbox Avatars.
IRetrouk  +   971d ago
Home was anounced before either console launched, your thinking of xbox avatars, home is nothing like the miis or avatars

psvita can do that feature as well. you can take screenshots while playing a game, you can comment on it, you can even see other players progress in games they have played. If this article is an attempt of nintendo inventing those features,then nope sony had similar features since the ps3 and vita was released
