The Wii has never been big when it comes to online gaming, because when you think about it even trying to play with another person is a pain, such getting their number for every game just to play with him.
After an interview with Edge, Miyamoto claimed that criticising Nintendo’s online strategy is “unfair” and that “Nintendo has never been less than proactive in that kind of endeavour”.
“To be honest, I think it’s rather unfair whenever I hear such comments – that Nintendo isn’t proactive when it comes to its online strategy.” He said
“The fact of the matter is that we always want all Wii consoles to be connected online, all the time, so Nintendo has never been less than proactive in that kind of endeavour.”
“It is true, though, that Nintendo hasn’t been very proactive in developing such online activities as an MMOG. But when it comes to out endeavours that try to take advantage of internet technology, where we can provide our customers with more fun and entertainment, then I think we can say we have been very, very proactive and well received.” Miyamoto added.
