I think Reggie has been reading 'buzzwords' in off topic?

I'm looking forward to seeing what Miiverse will offer and I'm still hopeful of being able to construct individual groups. Here's hoping that Nintendo considered such a simple idea.

Home on psn is optional though, If having an avatar is forced upon me I just wont bother buying the(any) console.
Microsoft forced it and I just stopped logging in, I hate using the Xbox because of it. Bring back the old blades.
Hope this isn't going to be the default boot up for the U.

I honestly hated the idea when it was announced and I still hate it now. We already have forums for game discussions so why the hell do we need a system where the majority of the posts will be written by kids with very bad English skills or with a love of texting.

think the idea itself is fine and very useful and will add to a user exoperience, but a killer app or function, behave reggie. it's not going to entice people to system
