Nintendo will allow its players to be able to post comments directly in games. It can be a simple comment about their gaming experience or a venue to seek help about the game they are playing. Sounds fun but how much time will be given to post these comments and who will monitor what is being posted? How fast will the response rate be? Just curious over what their objective really is.
Nintendo players to post comments directly in games
What you are talking about is actually Nintendo’s new social networking service called the Miiverse. It lets you interact with not only Nintendo Wii U owners but smartphone owners as well. This service is provided to diminish the isolation that gamers feel when they are playing. Imagine if a player gets stuck at a game, he/she needs to close the game first then search the internet for solutions to his problem. With MiiVerse, this problem is going to be diminished altogether. Just pause your game and you can see your community where you can post your problem and in real time see the responses of the people in your MiiVerse.
Having this innovative service has its problems though, like proper security for posting of comments. Nintendo solves this problem by constantly reading posted comments and if, problems such as profanity and foul language was used, will automatically censor them or not post the comment altogether. Because of this type of security protocol, expect your comments to have a delay of about a minimum number of seconds before it will be displayed. The Nintendo Wii U is a game console that will be bought mostly by kids after all, so expect it to be as secured and as safe as possible.
