Miiverse Details To Be Announced During Nintendo Direct Before Wii U Launch

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata confirmed at a recent investors meeting that he will be hosting another Nintendo Direct before the Wii U launch to show off Miiverse functionality. Iwata wouldn’t provide an exact date for the presentation, but hopefully we shouldn’t have to wait too long to get a better glimpse at Nintendo’s social network for gamers.

      1. Your name says “ipad fanboy” & your talking about PSN, what are you even doing on a website that only has Nintendo related news

      2. erm I love the wiiU. I can love more than one system u no. but friend codes should die.

        If u love friend codes then u def sleep with Nintendo and agree with all the shit mistakes they made.

      3. Friend codes work well on the 3ds you daft dick face. You sausaged nosed piece of fucking horse shit – pull your Ipad out of you butt hole and shit on your mums bed.

      4. You do know Friend Codes are still around in the Wii U, right?

        Because they just modified it to be very user friendly and also make it feel more like a Gamertag/PS Account

      5. they do work well on the 3ds. you can have ANY name you want, and your account info is the number, but you can change your user name any time you want for free. p good.

      6. Fuckin MAXiPad fanboy go change your pad asshole get out of this Nintendo related website you fuckin transsexual!

      7. Anyone who goes through the comments just to troll on a perfectly nice person is no better than the turd that came out of my dogs bunghole this morning, so just let it slide Drew. This person will end up dead just like everyone else in the world. I wish that whoever runs this site would moderate the comments a little better, as with the new system coming out there are a bunch of morons who have to hate to make their worthless selves feel better. Little do they know they are still worthless. This site is nice, but there are way too many inch brained morons that frequent the comment section looking to bully

      8. AWWWWWWWW BOOOOHOOOOo!!!!!!!!!!!! GO AND SUCK YOUR MUM’S TITS!

        CRY BABY WELCOME TO THE INTERNET GET USED TO IT!!!!!!

      9. LOL your should a prick it unbelievable grow up the kid just wanted to get people friend code no need for you to attack him you prick what the fucks your problem your probably getting starve for attention at home so you go on the internet and troll just to get the attention your lacking at home your parents should be ashamed.

      10. Exactly Guru! The dude is better off dead and he knows it, so he has to come here and try to stir up a bit of emotion… It is sad :(

      11. So because it is the internet it is ok for you to be a moron? That makes a lot of sense, doesn’t it mom? LOL little man syndome to the max! Look and point at the animal people, he thinks this is a zoo

      12. because i completely owned him lol see nintendo fans can be crazy we’re not all little kids lol :D

      13. go get a life ipad fanboy you are just mad because you have no friends and no family that still likes you you huge dick stop trolling people am one of the people that just hates trolls and no im not a nintendo fanboy i like xbox360 to but not as much as nintendo

      14. you’re just another fuck like aeolus that acts tough but has nothing to say to back themselves up. if you’re going to be an asshole on the internet, the least you can do is actually have something to say to support yourself. otherwise you’re just another douche bag whoring for attention, just like aeolus.

      15. That logic hasn’t stopped Aeolus from posting. Dont worry about it. The four walls of their parents basement make them feel lonely.

      1. Quit replying “no” to me, it doesnt apply to you if your not interested you hoe bitch

      1. Well if you guys want add me:
        4081 – 5516 – 1502
        *In a 13 year old voice* “OMG Friend Codes are such an inconvenience, it took me an eternity aka 6 seconds to write my code” =__=
        No seriously, we get it trolls, it’s not the best system, but yeah, the guys constantly bashing Ninty over such a tiny matter are really just showing how desperate they are. My advice to them….eat a green mushroom ;)

      2. How much worst could it possibly to exchange friend codes. Its not much different from phone numbers. I didn’t like it on wii though cause you needed a different one for every online game

  1. Finally. we get to see how bad the online is again. I dont think Nintendo have learnt their lesson

    1. You have no idea what you’re talking about. MiiVerse is the NEW online service which will be bigger and better than the current Online Service we currently get.

      1. not hard to beat wii’s REALLY poor online… the wiiU is awesome but I dont see the online being as good as xboxs. Yes you have to pay but I pay for a great service…

      2. oh, ok how does it feels? you have tried the Wii U’s online right? that’s why you said that? how it was?

      3. erm Yes I did at eurogamer expo… Nice try kid…. there were tech difficulties and laggy Tekken… poor just poor

      4. You did not explore the wiiu’s online network at eurogamer. You played a buggy demo unit. Expect the final Wiiu to be nothing like what you played.

      5. actually fanboy…. |I played a tournament there and the Namco rep said it is the final version… NICE TRY

      6. Nice try you lying piece of shit!!! I just played THE EXACT SAME UNITS AS YOU PLAYED at Europ gamer and they were buggy . and the reps said these do not represent the final product of the console or any of the games and are early demos.

        HE said ”we’ve been touring around to Euro gamer and Gamescom etc”… They wouldn’t even start up properly and some were refusing to output HD so they couldn’t even display Trine 2 cus it was fucked….

        This was at play expo in Manchester btw.

      7. He litteraly told me they came from Eurogamer and all the Units were extremely buggy and affecting the framerates and gamepad sync and everything. nuff said.

      8. DAMAGE CONTROL FAGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        NINTENDO IS FUCKING GONNA DIE WITHOUT ONLINE THEY NEEED GOOD ONLINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      9. OOOOOOOKKKK FAAAAAGGGGGG!!!!! NNIIIIINNTTTTEEEEENNNNDDDDDOOOO WIIIILLLLLL HHHHAAAAVVVVEEEE OOOUUUTTTSTAAANNNDDDIIINNNNGGGGG OOOONNNLLLIIINNNNNNEEEE WIIIITTTTTHHHH THE WIIIIUUUUUUU , W8888888 ANNNNNDDDD SEEEEEEE.

        WIIIIIIIIUUUUUUU BAAAAAYYYYOOOOONEEEEETTTTTTTAAAAA?????????

      10. I don’t normally advocate falling to the trolls’ level, but this is awesome ;)

      11. ok, sure go tell to 3rd party companies that you just played a game with something that devs doesn’t have yet :)
        Go, run I’ll be waiting here bro

      12. Whiny kids being fucking annoying is worth the money? oh god no give me my money back

    2. your a idiot please get off the site look at the 3ds on line its lag free and the wii u will be like that too

      1. you clearly never played mario tennis… and how are the friend codes going? those REALLY LONG DIGITS

      2. up its not going to have long friend codes on the wii u idiot i was say about how 3ds online is lag free

      3. source? and please dont quote nintendo reps…and learn to write english you foreigner

      4. I AM STILL WAITING FOR A FUCKING SOURCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        GOES TO SHOW YOU GOT FLOORED! FUCK U!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      5. uh…do you think he’s on this site 24/7? you only gave him almost 20 minutes, it’s not like feeding a troll is his top priority…

      6. Going great.
        Added several this week alone.
        How are you enjoying the discussions?
        Oh, right….

    3. Yes because a multi-billion dollar company thats been in the industry for over 20 years. Knows nothing about the industry they’re in, and instead comments from children, teenagers, and basement dwellers have said companies fate hanging in the balance.

      Brilliant!

      1. so explain the lack of third party support and poor online? and nope PORTS of old games on wiiU do not count as third party support…

        Farcry 3 and dishonoured are not coming to wiiU… there goes two of the biggest games this year…

      2. Fuck off lol. The wiiu is LAUNCHING. That means it wil start off with ports because the wiiu wasn’t made when those games came out. And if you classify some of the wiiu games as just ”ports” then the ps3 and pc are 65% ports ……

      3. you telling me to fuck off shows that I AM RIGHT. How do you feel with the vita getting PHANTASY STAR ONLINE but the WIIu ISNT?!?!??!!?!?

        difference is ps3 and xbox GET GAMES and they STILL DO espec when the wii Died!!!!!. Wii got GIMPED PORTS and exclusive baby games like that carnival one LAWL. Only a handful of wii games were decent…. EMULATED HAHAHAHAHAH

      4. How do you feel when I’m buying the definitive version of PSO2 for my PC not the gimped vita version , and the 3ds is gettin Monster Hunter Ultimate also on Wiiu and Monster Hunter 4 exclusively ?????

        ”gimped ports” – just shut up , the majority of these ports are enhanced with all the DLC chucked in . FIFA and MADDEN are the only shitty ports I can think of , And even Fifa has the best graphics on consoles and a slew of exclusive features and I don’t give a dogs dick about madden anyway…

      5. Wait a few more years it just came out geez what a dumbass and you expect many good games come out in launch date?

    1. your a idiot the wii u will have a lag free online just look at the 3ds why are you on a nintendo website if you dont like nintendo people like you ruin this site

  2. I really don’t care for the “Mii” part of the Miiverse. I never really cared for Miis on the Wii, I don’t care for XBL avatars, and PlayStation Home got boring.

    It will be nice if Nintendo brings something completely new to the table, sure, but I would rather find out details on a sound network infrastructure for Nintendo more than anything else.

  3. Dear whoever runs this site, Please change the comment system. The trolls are horrible on this site.
    Love, everybody

    1. A lot of guys have been campaigning for that, but nothing has changed. It’s a shame, but I guess all the flaming gets a ton of comments and views which helps the site owners, so they have no incentive to improve the comment system

  4. the wii u will have a LAG free online just look at the 3ds ive NEVER had lag on there so the wii u will be even better than that :D but i just want to know how you can connect with friends and chat

      1. your a idiot your not a true gamer if you nthink that nintendo have the most hardcoe fans out there and i know A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT ARE SWITCHING TO NINTENDO so the wii u will be fine if your system is so good why are you not playing games instead your trolling a nintendo website grow up kid

      2. “A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT ARE SWITCHING TO NINTENDO”

        So if they told you that you were an orphan would you believe them? Gulliable faggot

      3. serious question….
        how old are you?
        you know logically nothing your saying is making sense, just letting you know

      4. erm more likes you dont understand me. How about going to school and get off the coke hmmm?

      5. Wait till Smash Brow and Starfish and Metroid and F-Zero which will be 1080p 60fps and 30 players in a game.

      6. HAHAHAHA nice catch I though I reposted saying Starfox* but I missed Brow lol. Thats what I got for typing that on my phone.

      7. hahaha autocorrect fails
        …30 players would be too insane…imagine the combos (omgwtfnocombosinbrawl!!) in the next smash bros….

    1. Some games lag a LOT. Dead or Alive dimensions is a mess but still fun, and mariokart 7 has its occasional lag moments but your right 3DS is generally lag free. I hope the ii U experiences zero lag.

      1. iTS nINTENDO…. THEY HATE ONLINE….. the wiiU is just for local multiplayer but too bad Nintendo fanboys dont have friends!!!!

  5. I hope that miiverse is implemented well on the nintendo 3DS. And I hope messages don’t take a lifetime to send like on swapnote.

  6. Let´s hope it´s not like the last one when everybody was talking about, that it was supposed to be about a thing that it will make of the Wii U a “Must have” and at the end it was just about the 3DS.

    1. This guy is a dickhead . Your opinion means absoloutly nothing to any of us. Carry on playing your 360 for the next 2 years and see if we give a shit whilst we’re playing the wiiu.

      I have a ps3 a 360 and a wii , I don’t go around preaching how shit the other 2 consoles are just becuase i’m a Nintendo fan. Seriously dude grow a meat and 2 veg.

  7. You are acting like a completely worthless idiot. I don’t care if this is just a joke (who would name themselves “Ipod Fanboy”, come to a NINTENDO site and be real?) or you are completely serious (hating on Miiverse but knows nothing about it) It is just ridiculously dumb and makes everyone on this site look more ignorant. I pleade to whoever runs this site to have some people moderate the comments section for his/her own good and the websites respectability (it is the internet after all, I suppose. An internet “journalist” might as well be a janitor….) Really though, do you want your website to be like all the rest of the crap out there?

    1. this site is the WORST. get the fuck out if ur not happy. I am here to stay even if u ban me ill unban myself and FUCK U UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      fuck the wiiU for casuals

      No wonder Apple is the richest company in the world with 650$ per share atm. Games are free or really cheap and not overpriced rehashes like MariO

      1. wow ipad fanboy are the werst troll even alous would even find you annoying shut up you stuopid asshole get a job and a life

      2. Because you are too poor to pay for games? yes i think you really are you don’t have a life or friends after all :)

    1. I’ve just realized that he said “Along with every person with an account on your own system.” So that means that you will be able to create multiple accounts! :D

      1. Yah they showed off that when they showed off Nintendo TVii. A dad can have his account set up in a way, the mom, and Kids all get an account. Who knows if their is a limit lol.

    1. YOU JUST WROTE A COMMENT ABOUT ME SO YOU ARE NOT IGNORING ME

      GO FIGURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FAGOOOOOT!

      1. Guy above me is an faggot with no life and want attention well let me tell you something about getting attention on the internet it not that special now try to get attention as your parents ignore you and if that happen like i mentioned then get a friend instead of trolling……unless you are a loser and don’t know how to make friends well whatever happens i wish you luck about getting friends and attention on real life

    1. I FUCKING DESTROY THIS SITE… LONG LIVE STEVE JOBS

      AND DEATH TO NINTENDO FANBOYS WHO LIKE THE WIIS POOR ONLINE AND FRIEND CODE CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      1. Let me guess…
        You bought an iPad Mini instead of an iPad, and now you are compensating for the lack of size…
        It’s ok. Actually. You should be embarrassed.

  8. ipad fanboy you have no idea what you are talking about, nintendo is leading the videogames world PS3 and Xbox can only dream to be as good as nintendo. First of Sony doesnt give a fck about the PS cause if they fck it over they still have a lot of other goods they sell like tvs and shit, Microsoft its fking microsoft they dont need shit to survive and Nintendo? oh man they cant fck it up cause they know if they do they are over cause they dont sell ANY OTHER KIND OF SHIT YOU GET IT? thats why nintendo first party games are that fking good aka Zelda, Metroid, Mario Kart, etc they work hard for their games because THATS THE WAY OF LIVING UNLIKE YOUR OTHER SHIT ASS BRANDS. NOT TO MENTION most of the xbox and ps 3 games that are actually worth it are 3rd party and NOT 1st PARTY lmao dude knows shit bout the videogames world…

  10. It’s pathetic the amount of sad low life “trolls” come on this site. Seriously, go get a life, and Sickr, change the site, its embarrassing.

    Anyway, im interested what new ideas Miiverse bring. Not concerned about “the online”, as idiot refer to it, the 3DS worked perfect for me, and thats on a small device.

    1. Indeed. If only people didn’t get baited into replying to them and simply ignored them the problem would subside. But we all know that will never happen.

  11. I’ve seen a lot of trolls in this site, trolls that make people angry. But the most sad troll I’ve ever seen is Ipad fanboy -.- Good luck with all your casual games Mr!

  12. Yep, it’s official: You’re a 12-year old Nintendo hater who can’t even come up with a good comeback. Posting boob videos just prove how much of a pervert you are, and typing in all caps doesn’t make you mature. You haven’t even tried the ACTUAL Wii U, the final product, but according to your logic, we should believe that the Wii U’s online system sucks, when you haven’t even tried the final product yet. Come back when your arguments are actually valid, and please, go get a life.

  13. This should’ve been obvious. I guess that’s the end of that rumour that Miiverse won’t be there at launch. Don’t believe things from anybody that doesn’t work at Nintendo. Leave luck to heaven.

  14. Reblogged this on hypersonic55 and commented:
    I have been waiting for some more solid information on Miiverse since it was announced back at E3 this year. Obviously here’s been bits and bobs of info being released since, but if the next Nintendo Direct will give a more detailed look into Miiverse then I can’t wait because it sounds like a great idea on paper, I just hope its the great social experience Nintendo are making it out to be.
