No Twitter or Facebook for Miiverse

Looks like Nintendo’s Miiverse is keeping gaming focused on the gamers. The Miiverse social network will first come to life on the Wii U before making its way to the 3DS and other web-enabled device, but you won’t be seeing it on Facebook or Twitter anytime in the future.

There also aren’t any plans underway to offer apps on Facebook or Twitter for Wii U users, the reasoning being cited as part of Nintendo’s policy to not offer a service that’s already easily accessible on multiple devices.

And while there’ll still be a built-in browser on the Wii U, it sounds like gamers are primed to have their own social network focused on gaming in the Miiverse. Will gamers take to it? We’ll find out.

Dave will tell you that he likes to play video games, this is in fact a lie. What he really likes to do is buy games, and leaving them sitting unopened on his shelf. He is a monster.
