There have been rumors circulating regarding Nintendo's online network plans for its upcoming Wii U console. Today, president Satoru Iwata announced the first details about the service -- which will have many of the features gamers have come to expect on services like Xbox Live and PSN. The Nintendo Network, as it is called, will be compatible with both 3DS and Wii U.

You can read Iwata's full statement on Nintendo's site, but here are some of the highlights:

-- The Wii U will have a "personal account system" compatible with the Nintendo Network. Iwata said this would make it easier on families that have multiple users of a system in one house. Hopefully, this will work exactly as it does on PS3 or Xbox 360, where you login to your identity and are instantly signed into the network.

-- Post-release downloadable content for packaged games: Iwata said that Wii U games will be supported post-launch. Already, some 3DS titles like Square Enix's Theatrhyhythm will feature downloadable tracks post-launch.

-- Iwata pointed to Mario Kart 7's community functions -- which allow you to organize groups and sort different match types in multiple groups -- as a model for some of the Nintendo Networks functions.

-- Nintendo is also "considering the future possibility of digital distribution of packaged software" for Wii U.

Iwata also said the company would release the system in time for the holidays. He commented, "For the launch of new hardware, it is regarded as a sort of requisite not to miss the critical year-end sales season. The company is aiming to firmly complete the development of the entire system and prepare sufficient software so that the Wii U will be at its best at the time of the launch." Iwata reiterated that Nintendo had "learned a bitter lesson from the launch of the Nintendo 3DS."

I'm hyped for the personal accounts. They're the difference between losing everything you own if your system is broken/stolen and being able to download it again at your own leisure.

While they are late with the online functions, it's coming to a brand new system. It'll be a new beginning (especially if they go through with the rumored name change).

Im hyped for WiiUs new features too, but I wouldnt go as far as to say this.

Yeah, it's way too soon to pick the best selling/best received console for next generation. That said, it looks like Nintendo is playing its cards reasonably well thus far and will probably be the first to the market.

The Nintendo Network might well help WiiU snatch a few 360/PS3 owners if it's really as robust as some are expecting. Still not sold on Nintendo and online, though.

Im more worried about what happens whan the other guys release there next gen consoles.

From what I've heard analysts expect the WiiU to be more powerful than the X-Box 720 but slightly weaker than the PS4 Cool

Cheak it out. A friend And I were Disscussing this very thing on Thursday. Check it out.

WiiU is shown to be Twice the Power of the Xbox 360 (this is a rumour might I add But Many different developers have said the same thing So it makes me question if thsi should still be considered a rumour or not)

Ok Now check this out Microsoft released a statment the other day saying that the new Xbox will be 600 times more powerfull than the Current one. So basically when It is released it will (in theory) been 200 times more powerful than WiiU
http://www.forbes.com/sites/insertcoin/2012/01/26/xbox-720-rumors-six-times-as-powerful-will-restrict-play-of-used-games/


This is all just speculation now so dont believe everything you hear.

I think you mean 2 times as powerful, not 200 and 600. Razz Imagine the electric bills for systems like that. The second article also conflicts with the first article, since it says the 720 would be 20% stronger than the WiiU.

But yeah, it's hard to gauge things based on speculation and rumors since everyone seems to say different things.

Its not about Power as in electricity, but more Processing power. The Xbox 360 has 200 times more rocessing power than the original Xbox. Thats basically what that means when I say power in this Context.
