Apple Beat Nintendo to a Unified Gaming Network…For Shame


Alright, I know this isn’t an Apple blog, but today’s iPhone OS 4.0 announcement brought us word that Apple is working on a unified social gaming network. That’s right, Apple beat Nintendo to it, leaving Nintendo the only major competitor in the market that doesn’t have one.

PS3 & PSP: Playstation Network

X-Box 360: X-Box Live

iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch: Game Center

PC: Steam

Wii & DS/3DS: ???

For being an a major innovator in the video game industry, Nintendo sure is taking their sweet time on this. If they don’t announce something at E3, I’ll be very, very put out. Its a matter of necessity at this point. A little hint, Nintendo: CLUB NINTENDO!
