Nintendo’s Miiverse Doesn’t Want to Share
Nintendo has recently clarified that their built-in social network known as Miiverse will not have access to other social networks.
While some gamers used to the Twitter and Facebook connectivity offered to them by their current consoles, Nintendo have their own internal social network built into its system software and games.
Nintendo of Europe’s Laurent Fishcer has highlighted that many of our current gadgets already do this, so WiiU will aim to do something completely different.
The Miiverse functionality raises some great opportunities for gamers throughout their sessions. As access is limited to only WiiU owners and those engaged in the games themselves, gamers can cooperate by adding hints and tips for levels and games.
Nintendo have long-term plans that include increased connectivity to the Miiverse via one’s own 3DS, smartphone or personal computer beyond the console’s launch.
A social networking or community system may not be news to most gamers who are familiar with Sony’s PlayStation Network and Microsoft’s Xbox Live Arcade, but Nintendo are no stranger to ideas being shared.
All posts will have a 30-minute buffer before being posted owing to moderators ensuring profanity, immaturity and spoilers don’t make it through to the public boards.
The WiiU currently has a holiday release window but no official date has yet been confirmed.

In case you hadn’t noticed, American Apparel and controversy are kind of a package deal. In fact, the LA-based brand has become arguably more infamous for its controversial commercial campaigns, than for its beloved basic tees and bodysuits.
