    If you’re looking for Nintendo’s Wii U to have a unified online network , well dont ! No concrete plans for the system’s online functionality have yet to be fully detailed, Nintendo president Reggie Fils-Aime made it sound like it’ll be left upto developers where Nintendo would allow them to create their own online interfaces ot be accessed via the Nintendo Wii U.

    Nintendo is “creating a much more flexible system,” Fils-Aime said, “that will allow the best approaches by independent publishers to come to bear. So instead of a situation where a publisher has their own network and wants that to be the predominant platform, and having arguments with platform holders, we’re going to welcome that. We’re going to welcome that from the best and the brightest of the third party publishers.”

    He said that Nintendo’s system would be an “extremely robust online experience,” but deferred to publishers regarding specifics. However, during the Ubisoft/Nintendo developer roundtable at E3, Ubisoft continually deffered to Nintendo. We hope this isn’t how the actual development of the service is going.
