Wii U Miiverse to Now Resemble a Social Network

Nintendo Wii U's Miiverse changed their network to resemble more of a social media feel as users are now allowed to post on their Activity Feeds and on their friend's feed.

Previously Wii U users were able to only communicate with people in certain games.

The Activity Feed is only able to be seen by those that are in the users friend network, much like a Facebook with privacy settings.

According to Joystiq, Miiverse will be coming to the 3DS sometime before 2014.

Wii U is in full catch up mode as they have recently lowered the console's price and announced a bunch of great games on the way.

With the PS4 and Xbox One looming, it is important Nintendo makes a statement on where the future of the franchise is going.

The 32GB Wii U is now $299 after launching at $349 starting Sept. 20.

This holiday season the Wii U is anticipating Nintendo staples including: The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD, Super Mario 3D World, and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.

Third party games on the way are: Call of Duty: Ghosts, Sonic Lost World, and Assasin's Creed IV: Black Flag.

"Obviously we want to drive Wii U momentum," Reggie Fils-Aime, President of Nintendo of America said of the price drop to Kotaku. "We've been very clear that software is what drives hardware. And we feel very good about the line-up of software for Wii U. Taking the added step to improve the value just reinforces our commitment to make sure that Wii U has a strong holiday this year and is set up to be a strong platform into the future."

A new trailer showed clips from The Legend of Zelda: The Windwaker HD, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Super Mario 3D World, Super Smash Bros., Mario Kart 8, and the already released New Super Marios Bros. U and Pikmin 3.

Ah. I'm glad I'm getting my Wii U AFTER these updates come out.
You know the gaming industry is **** when the biggest announcement is that a console can play used games and won't totally screw you over.

Yeah, they have to catch up. If they dont, the super hd twins will catch up in no time.

So far, I am happy that nintendo is putting better effort into their lineup, as well as good system updates and deals.

Once Reggie remembers that he used to win awards for marketing, then wii u will be just fine.
