The lights are on
Recently, Nintendo has been revealing more and more information about the Wii U's online capabilities as the Wii U's launch approaches. About 6 days ago, Nintendo posted a video on YouTube explaining WaraWara Plaza and Wii U Chat for the Wii U. About a few hours ago, they posted another video, but, this time, it talked about the Nintendo Network, Miiverse, and the Internet Browser. From what they have announced, what do you think about the Wii U's online capabilities? Personally, I think that they are amazing! Nintendo has done a lot correctly this time around! If you haven't watched these videos, then check them out below.

The abilities will be coming in a fire storm. As we all saw with the 3DS the abilities were stretched by a long shot and added alot more features. Now Nintendo is added a Gamer Tag style to the console along with alot of online features that will induce streaming. Mentioned earlier this month, Nintendo added Youtube© to the Nintendo Wii. With this in mind, we must know that Nintendo is planning big for the Nintendo Wii U.

Not exactly online, but Neflix works beautifully, and is easily the best version of it across the Wii, Xbox 360, PS3, 3DS, and Wii U.
It loaded faster than any of these consoles, and the GamePad controls are damn near perfect. Hell, it basically does what MS said SmartGlass would to--but actually does it. Plus, you can switch to watching it on the GamePad at any time if you want.
I think the only downside is that the GamePad stays on, but it dims pretty quickly. PS3 controllers stay on the entire time, too, for apparently no reason.
The Miiverse is pretty sweet. Probably my favorite feature thus far.
