What is Miiverse?
Miiverse is an integrated social network system. It's implemented in the system menu and can also be used for games, if developers choose to do so. It allows users to chat with one another through text as well as through video. Not only can it be used on the Nintendo Wii U, but for other devices as well, such as cellphones. For a better idea on this, think of twitter, but for video games.

Will there be digital distribution?
The Wii U's eShop will be Nintendo's digital distribution store. Available at launch, the eShop will provide the means to download digital Wii U titles, retail Wii U titles, WiiWare titles, Virtual Console titles, and applications. The Wii U's eShop will also allow users to obtain patches, add-ons, and expansions for both retail and digital games.
