Miyamoto openly admits that Nintendo have been less active than they should be, but disputes claims that the console maker isn't - "proactive when it comes to online content".
It is true, though, that Nintendo hasn’t been very proactive in developing such online activities as an MMOG. But when it comes to our endeavours that try to take advantage of internet technology, where we can provide our customers with more fun and entertainment, then I think we can say we have been very, very proactive and well-received. And that attitude won’t be changed at all in the future.
