Just a quick post to talk about most reviewers weird obsession with mentioning Wii sports when talking about the Wii U.
I've now read at least 5 reviews of the hardware where they mentioned the Wii U hasn't got the same 'killer app' as the Wii did with Wii Sports.
I think Nintendoland has caused confusion... It's not the Wii U's killer app and it was never supposed to be.
I think it's Miiverse.
Check out this video from Kotaku underlining some of the features:
This to me is the 'killer app' Nintendo are looking for with Wii U and it seems to be largely ignored or brushed over.
Yes Nintendoland shows you how to use the tablet, but Miiverse really takes things in a new direction.
Finally having a specialised Gamefaqs / Twitter / Facebook style intergration with your gaming is going to be huge I think. Obviously there's a few teething problems (speed etc...) but im sure these will be ironed out soon with an update.
This is what Nintendo does best; pooling there old ideas together into one system.
Wii OS, Pictochat (DS), Game Guide (Wii) = Miiverse.
I think this feature is definatly the Wii U's 'killer app', and it's been largely ignored by most people reviewing the hardware which is a shame.
Can anyone who has a Wii U tell me how your getting on with this feature? (Oldergamer etc...)
To me, it's a game changer.
