Iwata confirms Nintendo Network, new Wii U control

Network 2

DeanCubed writes "In a Nintendo investor meeting , Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata confirmed a new Nintendo Network for the company's 3DS and upcoming Wii U game systems. This includes multiple user accounts per console (not tied to hardware, a first for Nintendo) and digitally distributed retail software releases for their online store.

Iwata also noted that the Wii U's tablet controller will feature NFC (Near Field Communication) functionality, allowing the ability to use figurines and cards to input visual data to the console. They are hoping to use this to make micro-transactions for paid DLC easier."

So it seems like the Wii U is really aiming to get all that third party support they missed out on by having an underpowered console.
