Nintendo Still Loves DRM, but Not the Internet

opposingviews.com: Of all the walled gardens out there, Nintendo's is one of the most bizarre. On the strength of its software legacy and its skill in capturing the handheld market, Nintendo has been able to erect a bizarre closed system that relies heavily on DRM and an almost self-contained "internet." It vigorously defends itself against infringement and views its target audience as innocents incapable of dealing with an open connection to the rest of the swearing, violent, bullying world. (Nintendo, Wii U)

The author really should have waited a bit before writing all this. First off, Nintendo Network ID's can be transfered from one Wii-U to another. Second the reason Europeans can see adult content at certain times has to do with Germany's laws in which Nintendo of Europe is based, its not Nintendo's decision. As for the transfering of info from Wii to Wii-U, it may not be convienient, but Nintendo didn't even have to do that at all. It was nice they allowed it, but it is hardly a deal breaker.

This article is really trying to pick at straws, yet fails to mention how Miiverse is an amazing social gaming network. The amount of creativitiy, and actual gamer help is phenominal. People generally are nice to each other on it instead of having a bunch of trolls hating on things. Don't get me wrong there is negative talk about games, but its justified by users experience. If I as is this game good and someone says it sucks, they are a lot more credible than somone commenting on N4G !
