There has been a lot of hustle about Nintendo’s Wii U. It has already been claimed by Miyamoto that Wii U is no less than Xbox 360 or PS3. Now with multiple exclusives already announced for this new console, lets see what officials have to say about the online experience of this console. In an interview with Eurogamer, marketing manager Robert Lowe said:
If you look at 3DS and the online of that you’ll get an understanding of where we’re going with Wii U and we’re taking that even further
He further elaborated:
With the online of 3DS it’s obviously a massive leap on from where we were with DSi and DSi XL. It’s smooth, robust, it doesn’t drop in and out.
With Wii U I think that we’ve already hinted that we’re looking at getting people in that know and understand online gaming as it’s something that perhaps we’ve struggled with in the past
No doubt Nintendo has been lacking the modern day multiplayer experience more like Xbox Live or PSN. 3DS’ multiplayer is an impressive leap forward and according to the statements above, Wii U’s connectivity will be superior than 3DS, which can even make it equivalent to two big console multiplayer platforms.
