Miiverse has changed the gaming industry

With the release of the Rayman Legends Challenge App on Wii U this week and news of Earthbound being localized for the west it does appear that Miiverse has changed the industry. Fan feedback got the attention of Nintendo and Ubisoft in these situations and they took action because of fan backlash across the web, especially on Miiverse. (Earthbound, Industry, Miiverse, Rayman Legends, Wii U)

I completely agree
Chat strategies, post pictures, vent about what urks you the most about the Wii U system. With Miiverse being closely monitored, it's no wonder Nintendo hears all our complaints.

Honestly, all it's missing is a screen recording function to capture little moments during your game, akin to Halo's theater mode. I think Miiverse is a really neat idea and really can be a killer app if expanded upon.

Nintendo! you read this?

Miiverse update it NOW!

Pop, i've taken care of it. Expect it some time 3rd quarter this year.

Jusr wait until the Miiverse is on a smartphone near you or Ipod or laptop. It's definitely the Wii U's secret killer app. Nintendo fans are so nice, kind and helpful what a breath of fresh air for an anemic and inbred industry.

That will definitely help improve its use and significance.

I personally think games like Maro Kart U and Super Smash Bros. U are going to make the Miiverse and the Wii U explode.

Indeed. It has opened a new door and offers a social potential previously untapped. It has a significant opportunity to bring a multiplayer aspect to single player gaming. It's quite nice. I just wish it was better already. Functionality is still limited and the UI is clean but not very well developed. There are many areas to improve. I just hope it improves and fulfills its potential.

I like the concept, though like most things on the Wii U its done poorly.

I can see Sony and MS taking these type of things to the next level.

Sadly I don't own a Wii U (yet) but I am looking forward to Nintendo bringing Miiverse to the 3DS (which I do own) sometime this year.

I love the art on Miiverse, it's nice to strive towards becoming one of the great artists (but at my 15,000 yeahs, it might never happen).
