Nintendo Concedes the Wii Struggled with Online, Promises to Improve

Kotaku: Last week, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata said he regretted going it alone with the Wii, which was an odd regret given the machine's massive success. Was something lost in translation? Today, we get a look at how Nintendo itself translated Iwata's remarks. Suddenly the regret is more clear... and more understandable.

The story is too old to be commented.

This was one of my complaints with the Wii. I really want to see a next gen Pokemon title haha. Not much you can do on the DS now a days it seems. Can't wait to see the innovations from Nintendo

Interesting to see just how far they will go with Online Services with their Wii 2

Good now lets see what new idea Nintendo can bring to the table.

I'm very interested in seeing that as well. Its a little hard to imagine a Nintendo console with an online setup similar to that of the PS3 and 360.

In terms of functionality it should be done really well. It's Nintendo after-all, gotta think of the casuals first and foremost.

Well at least they can admit it and are now working to improve it. Wii2 now has my interest...for now.

They admitted it back in 2006/7 I think. I remember it from an early interview.
