Nintendo is interested in providing a high quality online, networked experience. But, it's just not the way we want have come to expect. It's different. Miyamoto explains:
"A lot of people have the misunderstanding that Nintendo is not interested in network gaming. What we are interested in isn't so much the idea of creating a game that is online and networked in a way that we have seen online up until now. We are really more interested in this idea of having the household television connected to the Internet constantly via the Wii. I think you are going to see a lot of new possibilities for new types of entertainment, such as new channels for the Wii in that type of network environment.
I think that will give rise to more social-based communities including those created by users, which is going to be a very interesting and exciting area for us to explore."
