    Wii U:

    - User accounts: Wii U will have individual user accounts, rather than one system-wide account.

    - Near Field Communication ("touch" data transmission from accessories, credit cards, etc) will be built-in.

    3DS:

    - Nintendo considering DLC, mentions "Super Mario" as an example:
    "If a Super Mario user gets tired, we can then sell digital extras which will drive extra revenue, encourage higher communication amongst users, and possible increased satisfaction and hardware install bases."

    - NSMB3DS: Planning to release a totally new side-scrolling action Super Mario in 2D as a key title for the Nintendo 3DS in the next fiscal year.

    - "Path to profits is improve 3DS and focus on software. Super Mario titles will drive a lot of profitability."

    - 200 3DS titles in development

    - 60% of 3DS users have connected to the Internet; wants to expand digital offering, but at "infant stage" now.

    - Because of the success of Swapnote, Nintendo is considering other strategies to benefit from this social behaviour.

    General:

    - Third parties: Several new, previously unconsidered alliances/partnerships with third parties.

    - "We should not decline third parties if they want to offer item billing."

    - Still planning to offer DLC (possibly talking about their own software), but needs more time to complete its feasibility study on the market and its needs.

    - "Digital will include user to user communications and sharing" (More social networking integration? More Swapnote-like apps? More emphasis on Streetpass/Spotpass?).

    - Nintendo has learnt that it shouldn't have stagnant periods between software launches: can fill the gap, and digital can extend the life of a title.

    - This will be Nintendo's worst financial year, but Iwata thinks the company can reach break-even on 3DS hardware in Q3 of this year.

    200 3DS games in development.

    Hopefully 60% aren't shovelware (which I doubt).

    Single identity and NFC for Wii U is definitely a huge plus.
