    surching round the net and i came acrous this

    Nintendo's Saturo Iwata has noted that if it is possible for Nintendo to do something different in the online arena that plays to their strength then they will do it. However, they will not compete with the exact same services as Sony who have a movie studio and MS who have a whole lot of money.

    In terms of online services, Iwata actually tells Yukari Iwatani Kane at the WSJ, "If we can do something different that plays up our strengths - and broadens what a videogame constitutes - then we might do it. If we have no ideas, we're not going to compete with the exact same services against companies like Sony, which has a movie studio, and Microsoft, which has a lot of money."
