The Sony share button is amazing. The system is always recording your gameplay so if you do something cool, press share and upload right to youtube. Thats badass.

Sony will feel right for casuals and Nintendo will feel right to all other gamers.

Both are right but aim at different target audiences.

I fall more into line with Nintendo as the only aspect of "social gaming" I care about is multiplayer. Not liking the gimmick the PS4 is trying to push (which also ups the cost).
If history is to change, let it change. If the world is to be destroyed, so be it. If my fate is to die, I must simply laugh.

I would say Miiverse.

Oddly enough, it seems more "hardcore" if you wann use that word. Why? Because it's a dedicated gaming community.

I love my Facebook friends, but they dont give two ****s about what I play if it isnt CoD, Bioshock, skyrim, or any other game with a ridiculous marketing budget.
Metroid Zero Mission and Super Metroid are some of the finest 2D games ever made and are the best in the series.
Metroid Fusion is pretty cool I guess.

It's a tough choice, really. On the one hand, the share button has the more high-tech feel, and it makes it easier to record footage with good quality. On the other hand, Miiverse is a gaming community, whereas about 4 of my Facebook friends (if that) even care about achievements and bosses.

Hard to say without knowing more about how PS4's system actually works. There seems to be some cool ideas there, like the ability to stream your game / play local multiplayer with people online.

The share button is stupid.
If you want facebook, you can just log on it later after a gaming session in your PC.

Miiverse actually has a reason to be on Wii U, and once you get over the fact you can't be hostile to people at all and not advertise other products, and that the posts are basically like tweets, it's good.
Got a Wii or Wii U but nothing new to play? Get Pandora's Tower!

Miiverse is quite literally Wii U's greatest hardware appeal, so the poll results are not surprising in the slightest.

Sony is the better business strategy. First it basically takes all Sony gameplay off of youtube to a dedicated site where surprise surprise they will get all the ad revenue. plus it will function as a huge advertisement for them.

I'm surprised more people don't see this. This is Sony's way of nipping things in the butt, when it comes to losing money to gamers on YouTube.
