"On the Wii U we do have additional reasons for connecting, we talked about things like the video chat system, nothing revolutionary but it's going to be convenient, it's going to be easy," said Nintendo of Europe's Laurent Fischer. "The community will be the Wii U owners, who will have this common interest for video games and our expectation about that is it's going to be a way to enhance the idea of sharing information on the video game."
Remember that Miiverse is also on a potential 30-minute communications delay due to family friendly moderation. At least we know Nintendo is doing its best to keep another console generation of children safe from the big, bad internet.
