In a financial briefing, Satoru Iwata confirmed suspicions that Café will focus on social gaming, but not in the way we currently think about it.
Yeah, and I just did Carmen Electra. Twice!
"Iwata claims Nintendo invented social gaming," well n64 was an amazing console to play with friends...
All nintendo consoles are
Pong, anyone? Atari 2600?
when they put it like that it makes somewhat sense gaming started to actually take off with the NES but when people use the word social gaming i think of like facebook games
New smash bros. incoming?
They did. The N64 was the master of 4-player games. Too bad Nintendo hasn't exactly taken it to the next level with online, but it sounds like that's what they're going to do with Cafe.
Another "revolution" from Nintendo? Be afraid, be very afraid...
So why did you screw it up with friend codes? *shudder*
Get rid of those long phone numbers lol. The one thing that bothered me about online is that it lagged, playing brawl online was very laggy so for the future, plz fix that. I am aware that there is a Wii mic but no body even has it or maybe even heard of it so next time have the console come with a mic so more people can talk online.
So, what are you going to claim you invented next? 3D gaming? HD gaming? Every one that knows history of video game knows that you didn't invent motion gaming or "social gaming".
If they invented it, and it needs to be re-invented, then that would suggest that their previous efforts have failed. All this points to is another gimmick based console (touch screen, waggle, etc) and judging by their recent efforts (3DS) it looks like they will be jumping the shark again.
Well not everybody is into online gaming!Nintendo always focus on the pleasure of a well made SP campaign with great co-op or 4 player split screen!For some reason the wii sold what it sold.its online social?not so much!Its family's and friends social?Yes it is!Today games main focus its online and that wrong for me,having to pay $40 to $60 bucks for a 5 hour SP campain,im sorry i dont like and im against it,if i want to socialise with my friends i get out and go to a pub to a cinema with them,i can interact direct with them .......!Online play its not social,social its wend i have direct contact with my friends i can see them i can touch them....!im glad nintendo is keeping the focus on true gaming experiences,the SP ones and not online!I guess im different than most but im glad!If you ever watch the MATRIX,we are walking for a similiar path in a future everybody living inside a technologyc dream,people need to start disconnecting from virtual things,and get more to the roots of mankind freedom and fresh!
Next week Nintendo and Co. will state they invented console gaming and video games....and Silicon implants for Milfs.
They should make their online more social. Because at the moment they are using the friends code system which is terrible.
The truth haters...or you're just too young to care anyway. And they invented the D-pad for anyone else who is hating on the NES.
Although, that came first on the Game and Watch
Sounds to me like they're thinking of making their own social-network system ( like facebook/twitter) to replace the friends-codes for the Wii2.
Maybe something like a cross between Animal Crossing and MySpace - with Fb/twitter style updates???
They'll probably expand on the Mii plaza concept
