    Nintendo U fail

    Remember back at E3 when Ghost Recon Onlineproducer Adrian Blunt stated that Ghost Recon Onlinewould be doing away with friend codes? Well, if that got your hopes up that the Wii U?s online service would be comparable to Xbox Live or PlayStation Network, you might end up being a little disappointed.In a lengthy interview with Forbes, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime discussed Nintendo?s game plan with the Wii U. At one point during the interview, Fils-Aime was asked what the Wii U would be bringing to the table that stands out from the competition. Here?s what he had to say:?For Wii U, we?re going to take that one step further, and what we?re doing is creating a much more flexible system that will allow the best approaches by independent publishers to come to bear,? he said. ?So instead of a situation where a publisher has their own network and wants that to be the predominant platform, and having arguments with platform holders, we?re going to welcome that.
    This baffles me...

        Sorry! I posted that from my PS3 and had trouble posting the whole thing...

        If you're looking for Nintendo's Wii U to have a unified online network ... don't. While concrete plans for the system's online functionality have yet to be fully detailed, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime made it sound like it'll be left entirely up to individual publishers in an interview with Forbes.

        Nintendo is "creating a much more flexible system," Fils-Aime said, "that will allow the best approaches by independent publishers to come to bear. So instead of a situation where a publisher has their own network and wants that to be the predominant platform, and having arguments with platform holders, we're going to welcome that. We're going to welcome that from the best and the brightest of the third party publishers."

        He said that Nintendo's system would be an "extremely robust online experience," but deferred to publishers regarding specifics. However, during the Ubisoft/Nintendo developer roundtable at E3, Ubisoft continually deferred to Nintendo. We hope this isn't how the actual development of the service is going.

        Anyways, I just don't get it. They said that their online would be on par to XBL and PSN, and they go and announce something like this. This is about the fourth time Nintendo has contradicted themselves.

          I would comment, but at this point criticising the Wii U feels a little like beating up a baby seal with a baseball bat.
