Reggie Fils-Aime talks about the Wii U's online service.
Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime acknowledged Nintendo's online shortcomings and need to do better with Wii U in an interview with Forbes.
Fils-Aime also gave some rather uncertain details regarding their plans for the service. Telling Forbes that “what we’re doing is creating a much more flexible system that will allow the best approaches by independent publishers to come to bear.”
This and other comments seem to suggest that Nintendo is more interested in allowing for the publishers to handle the online services for their games, which may mean that we will not being seeing a robust online system like Xbox Live or PSN coming from Nintendo.
Reggie even went so far as to point to third party publishers for information on the service, saying that “from our perspective, we think it’s much more compelling for that information to come from the publishers than to come from us.”
