Um, the raising of the character limit happened over a month ago. The update primarily concerns the new tags.

I'm firing up the Wii U now that I'm home to check it out. Really interested in the "Accomplishment" tagging. Hope it is used enough to get Nintendo to make an actual accomplishment system for Nintendo Network.

Ah, so it was accurate, just vague about the context. That makes more sense. Thanks for the correction.

It's cool to see the rapid evolution of MiiVerse. Just don't f*** it up with a whole redesign or something like that (facebook), I generally like they way it works and looks now...

You have to admit, it's pretty damn good for being only 8 months old and Nintendo's first foray into social gaming. It will only get better and better over time, Nintendo has shown that they care deeply about Miiverse, and have already updated it quite a lot. Today's Miiverse is much, much better than it was when the Wii U launched.

And because of the Gamepad, I expect Nintendo to have the upper hand in this kind of twitter/facebook-like social network over Sony and Microsoft. Yes, Sony will also have awesome social features with the "share" button on the PS4's controller, but the community won't feel so connected in written form as it does on the Wii U. It just can't, because typingand drawing with the Gamepad's screen is vastly superior to using a regular controller to write on a virtual keyboard.

Miiverse is one thing that I believe will give Nintendo the upper hand over the other next-gen consoles, at least in the social area. Sony (and likely Microsoft) will be more focused on the video and voice-chat side of things, while Nintendo focus on the written side of things. All superb approachs, IMO, but I'm deaf, so naturally I'm more excited about Miiverse for pretty obvious reasons.
