Nintendo Miiverse Now Available on Smartphones, Still Requires a Wii U

by Shawn Ingram

Miiverse, the social network Nintendo introduced on the Wii U is now available on the web for smartphones and desktops, though it has a few limitations.

The Miiverse is Nintendo’s way of letting gamers communicate with each other in and out of games. The network creates hubs for each individual game that supports it, where gamers can converse. Users can post hints or comments about games to the service, and they will show up in games for other users. (Miiverse, Mobile, Wii U)

I like the way Nintendo only allows Wii U users to use Miiverse, it's a great way of keeping out the trolls.

An unfortunate necessity.

Yup, I used it this morning.

Gives people an incentive to buy a Wii U if they want to use MMii Verse.

I know what i said sounds dumb but consumers are known to do stupid things.

I currently have a love/hate relationship with Miiverse, i love the idea of it, a place to share game information, help others with game tips and hints, etc..., but i hate the way the community uses it right now, anytime someone asks for help with a game or something it goes unanswered, but if someone draws a picture or leaves a comment about how great Nintendo is they get hundreds of yeahs and replies. Its backwards right now, hopefully more people buy the wii u and the community grows up a little so the Miiverse can really becomes something special

that's bullshit and you either know it, or you are talking outta you're ass and never been on thr miiverse b4. anytime i post a question regarding a game im normally answered in 30 mins tops. Miiverse if anything is a helpful community at the least.

Man calm the hell down, first off I didn't trash the service, so why are you all butt hurt? as i said "I" have a love hate relationship with the service, if you love it, cool for you, but for me all "I" see when "I" go on is drawings and Nintendo praise getting all the yeahs!. Ive seen plenty of post about how do you pass this part, or where can i find this item with no replies, meanwhile a drawing of Zelda in a different games group mind you is responded to like crazy, now if you want to be a fan boy and act like that never happens, cool do you, but I know what "I" have seen

"At this time, a Nintendo Network ID can only be created on a Wii U console. (It is different from a Club Nintendo account.)"

So looks like their network is limited to Wii U users. I was thinking they were going to "expand the network users" when they brought Miiverse to PC and phones. They would have had more traffic and more traffic is more people talking about the Wii U.

How would it benefit the Miiverse users to have random people who don't even play or care about Nintendo games on Miiverse?
KrisButtar  +   483d ago
I figured it would be a great way to show people about it. Get them interested and talking about this social network(some hype), and let them see what amazing things people have done in Miiverse. Free way to advertise about nintendos new console. Might also help with sales.

Well, that sounds nice I guess, but Miiverse wasn't created to be a living advertisement.

Non wiiu owners can only see a small 'demo' type miiverse in the homepage, so they can have a taste of it.

Not bad but would like to see an app instead of the web browser and being able to message friends who are online etc...
