Nintendo Network: DLC, digital distribution, more

Speaking to investors, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata gave insight into the company's new network service, which is separate from the familiar old "Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection." Nintendo Network, as it's called, will be supported by both the 3DS and Wii U. The name should sound familiar.

Through this online platform, we'll see "competitions and communication among users, as well as the sales of digital content." Nintendo is also considering digitally distributing packaged games across 3DS and Wii U, though they have yet to decide on when to start such an initiative. At launch would be nice!

Iwata also briefly brought up a "personal account system" for Nintendo Network users on Wii U which would let multiple people game on the same console without having to share a single user profile. They're starting to get this stuff, guys.
