I was sat trying to think what Nintendo might call a new revamped network service, mind you this was just before the Wii U announce so fat chance eh?
Still the question remains. Then the after event chats started with Reggie doing the rounds. It sounds like maybe it's going to be a bit more ad-hoc than MS and Sony are doing, more like the tragic PS2 effort maybe?
But what do they call it? Then Reggie casually dropped in a line about the Nintendo Network, not talking about on-line functionality at all, but it did make me wonder. It would be very simple branding, very understandable for non-tech people. Also, it would be very easy to sell the concept of 3rd parties being affiliated.
I think I'll stick with that being my best guess.
