    On beating Smart TVs at their own game...

    Looking forward to Miiverse on the 3DS. Particularly for Animal Crossing!

    I have to say that the part about the Miiverse made my day. So far social integration has been a so-so thing for me. In other words, I've pretty much opted out whenever it was possible, since Facebook is mainly for communicating with friends, not for telling them how much time I spend playing games, watching netflix, youtube or whatever. Now with Miiverse, it's quite the same. I doubt I'd be telling people what I'm studying, but I sure as hell will be talking about games if I wanted to play co-op with someone.
