On top of the Miiverse

4 Jun

As part of its bid to turn around company losses, Nintendo’s Wii U console is launching a dedicated social network – Miiverse – to allow users to share gaming tips and content.

When users turn on their new console they’ll instantly see Miis running towards the most popular games at that time. Its new game pad console can also be used to enable video chat.

I hope I’m not the only one to admit this but I’ve never accessed additional gaming content on my Nintendo Wii, nor any other console I’ve owned. If I’m playing alone I’m ‘practising’; if I’m playing with someone I’m practising what I preach – winning. I’m not hungry enough to source codes, share tips on how to skip levels and gain extra lives.

I recognise that I’m by no means a typical representative for gamers. But, who has time to link in with another social network? I’m keen to find out how Miiverse allows you to link into Facebook, Twitter and other networks. People expect social media to be open and inclusive of others, allowing them to update all profiles at once. Inter-connectivity is key to stretch social networks even further, maximising reach.

Will this ‘add-on’ feature be enough to boost Nintendo’s share prices? If not, it won’t be game over but it will need to power up.
