Is Nintendo stubborn or ignorant about online?

They consistently fail to meet what are pretty much industry standards for online features.

But I'm curious if it's because they just aren't aware of what's going on in the online world/have no idea how to do it (ignorant). Or they are just being stubborn and being different for the sake of being different. And deliberately not including features they know their competition has.

I honestly feel they are just ignorant of what's going on. If they knew all the online things other companies are doing, I think they would make them even better.

Its ignorance imo and they continue to dig a deeper hole every year.

Nintendo is just in their own world right now.

The online system is miles behind PSN or XBL. You would think with the PS4 and Xbone that Nintendo would have improved its online system in the first year of the Wii U but they didnt.

Its sad really, Nintendo just blew it.

Sticking on feature just because "the competition has it" is a stupid ass reason.

Yeah, Nintendo should've used that there precognition to see what the Xbone and PS4 have, since they didn't technically release in the Wii U's first year.

This does not answer TCs question.

Eh, I'm not worried. I have other consoles if I want to play online.

No, I can't answer that myself, but thinking that they should stick in features just because other people have it is still awful reasoning.
