Platform holder talks up new console's network functionality
The 'next few days' are going to be interesting as Nintendo begins to roll out the details. (Our = Family gaming system.. that was not being played by my 8 and 4 year old)
I want to know this bad. They need to let people know because online gameing is here in the states to stay.
Let's hope so. We'll see tomorrow.
Goggle will handle the online. NIN has nothing to do with it.
I would hope that Trent Reznor would not be involved.
He's doing the online soundtrack
i wonder what it will be more like xbox live or psn in terms of interacting with other devices like how portal 2 has steam support and mmos working on ps3. I dont think nintendo will have a paid subscription for accessing online but maybe something similar to ps+.
if you dont wanna know about the Wii U, just go
WOw next gen console with last gen online connectivity! LOL
Nintendo will probably go after xbl live without the fees
Sounds great! I still want more info.
Did anybody mention storage capabilites? Are they going to use a new version of the Wii Optical Disc or a new disc format? Also what about data storage, is the WiiU gonna use hard drives or SD cards? I'm glad Nintendo is finally getting a capable online service. I bought a few games off Virtual Console but I never played games online and the service that is there isn't very good. It's manageable, but it could be better. They need to adopt a setup like Xbox Live where the menus just sort of flow and they need a fast PC style network.
It's a new propriety format that "allows for modern day space usage" this is paraphrasing what Reggie has said after the conference.
Can't imagine Nintendo putting up a fee for online when they don't have a very well establish one yet especially competiting with Live and PSN.
Same thing they said with 3DS...
I'm sorry folks but this looks like a oversized PSP. And how exactly do you connect it to the TV for HD quality? Do I use a really long HDMI cable running from my couch to the TV? I need more information...
The console itself is hd, presumably but not yet confirmed to be connected to tv via hdmi. As for the controller, I have no idea what the resolution of that screen is but I'd love to know if anybody has the info to hand
all i see and hear is a lot of talk and no show.. and one expensive looking controller.
It has XBOX live and PSN Level, but it doesn't have the competition against NEXT GEN!
Nintendo finally pursuing a proper online infrastructure? we'll have to wait and see, but it will be great if they could pull off their own PSN/XBL with proper gamertags.
action speak louder than words so until I can see with my own eyes I'm not believing it, sorry nintendo fans go ahead and hit the disagree button if you want. At this point I don't even care anymore.
past news was that gamespy was involved with nintendo network but who knows
And my guess is that it will join PSN, Steam and other online services in being free of charge.
