Wii U Revolutionizes Social Gaming

Audrey Drake:

Before the internet implodes due to a rash of comments from “hardcore” gamers outraged that a baby device for babies is being praised for its baby-rific online initiative, let’s all take a deep breath so I can explain where I’m coming from. To start, since my home is not currently located beneath a rock, I assure you that I’m fully aware that what Wii U offers in terms of an online community is a far cry from what Nintendo’s market rivals, Sony and Microsoft, have been offering for years. There’s no over-arching trophy system, no focus on voice chat or facilitating online multiplayer, no easy way to form parties or link to Facebook or pretty much anything most gamers have been trained to look for in an online service. Because of this discrepancy, Miiverse is very far from what a lot of core gamers were expecting or wanting. (Wii U)

Just a little info. My iPhone target app has listed the wiiU in my local store as being in stock. It also shows me like 8 diff stores all in varying distances from my own local store. I looked at them on Monday and all of them had a status of "in stock". I checked them again today and they all said "out of stock". Meanwhile searching ps3 and Xbox 360 finds plenty in stock. Looks like that "kiddie" system ppl keep dissing is kicking ass. Glad I got mine.
