74% of Nintendo Wii U, 80% of 3DS Owners Have Gone Online

Jorge Ba-oh: ''During Nintendo's investors briefing this week, the company expressed a strong online connection ratio for both the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.'' (3DS, Nintendo, Wii U)

Well that's a good statistic. Could be higher, but I was a bit skeptical on just how many people have gone online with these devices. Hopefully that will encourage Nintendo to further expand on their online infrastructure.

Nice, could be higher for both.

3DS online is doing great. Developers are loving eshop and main line games could start getting more and more digital sales. A good sign of this was Animal Crossing: New Leaf sales are at 2.7 million, 800k of which is digital, and it's still only out in Japan! I remember when a game's digital sales (talking non PC here) were happy to break 10% of total sales.

No need of cable is a really good aspect for wii u. You just turn it on and the internet is there, you just need a wifi spot. If the wifi is fast enough, than it is just as good as playing with a lan cable.
