    Orbis, subscription service includes Vita… Take your media with you on the go!!!

    At this rate Nintendo are the only ones who’ll be offering something that even slightly resembles a ‘console’…

    Dont worry, ninty premium would do the same thing. Iwata said so himself.

    Nintendo couldn’t compete with Sony let alone MS or Apple on a media level.

    Even though the Nintendo Network has not been fully revealed yet, i doubt they’ll be pushing it in your face as much as MS or Sony.

    There’s no point in wasting their time and money doing that really.

    MS wants to sell Windows 8, Smartglass etc..

    Sony want to sell everything…

    Nintendo only have their consoles and peripherals to worry about.

    Exactly. If anyone wants online, there best bet is 360/ps3, which I dont think is a good news for ninty and ninty premium service imho.

    I can’t argue with that as were talking about an online infrastructure that is over 5 years old Vs. a brand new one that hasen’t been tested yet.

    Can’t say the Wii U sounds fantastic if your into online multiplayer though…

    Mind you, i wouldn’t touch my PS3 for multiplayer games, so it makes no odds to me.

    Couch co-op and multiplayer is one of my main reasons to buy Nintendo consoles.

    Online for 360 & Exclusives on the PS3…

    Ahhh, so nice to own all 3 machines… :)

    I just hope if the all three are going this route, at least keep the options open with normal console SKU without subscription, i prefer it that way, and to have the option of choosing what i do prefer.

    Also a good question is how this is going to be handle on other regions like South America for instance?

    #8 Monkey i do agree, and i like to add that on wii we had good examples that online games can be done on the WiiU in good shape and form like mario kart, which is a first party tittle and monster hunter tri on the third party front, i think in that regard it will do good,although we dont have all the info, and that it is a new step nintendo is taking with a new device, and for that it will take a little bit of time to consolidate, i got the feeling it will be sufficient, not the best but it will get the job done eitherway.
