Local co-op is where Nintendo is the strongest.

What could be better then 4 friends/family members sitting in the same room playing Mario Party, Pikmin 3, or Smash bros?

Popping your friend upside the head for stealing all your stars, that's what. That's one thing online gaming will never get right; the sheer enjoyment of physical contact with the other players.

Mario Party ruins lives. Just saiyan.

If I had a job I would totally buy this and a Wii U. Unfortunately I'll have to wait.

The system isn't even out and he's already talking technical limitations, just how weak is this system?

Well that blows. I rarely have my little nephews over yet always play with my friends online. =/

The new SMB BETTER at least be online. No reason for it not to be.

By the way anyone that hated friend codes on the Wii they are not going away on the Wii U.. Reggie confirmed it earlier. Though they will apparently be easier, not that it's much of a shoulder to cry on for those that hate the whole concept.

Reggie Confirms Friend Codes

PS. I mentioned it here as this is the first mention of multiplayer, even if it is saying this game won't have it.

Miyamoto was referring to network lag, which will influence the framerate of _any_ system.
The thing is he is talking like it's impossible which it isn't. We have seen time and time again of far more complex games with far more units on screen at a time working flawlessly online. We have one coming out called Planetside 2 which is currently allowing 1000 vs 1000 battles. The technical limitations he's talking about we around 10 years ago I'll give him that, but if he just hired some skilled net coders it would be possible.

No big deal. If it's going to be crappy online then I don't see why they should waste their time trying to put it in and have no-one really use it like with Brawl.

Not unless they decide to have 100 characters on-screen at a time!

This is hilarious. but if you count pikmin, enemies, and captains, you could have something like 110 with lots of foes on-screen.
