Nintendo admits that digital service could miss Wii U launch

Nintendo is pondering whether it will launch a digital download service on the day it launches its next home console, the Wii U.

It's a sad repeat of the 3DS alunch, which also arrived ahead of its dedicated digital service.

Company president Satoru Iwata said Nintendo will prepare infrastructure to launch a service similar to Xbox Live for the next system. However, we have not decided the concrete timing of when we will start it,” Iwata told investors this week.

“The decision must be made by taking into consideration such factors as the relationship with the wholesalers and retailers, and the best way to be embraced by consumers. However, as an option for the future, the significance of this business field will increase.”
