Nintendo Bringing In Outside Help For Project Cafe's Online

Speaking to investors, Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata admitted the company made a mistake by not forming partnerships with outside sources when developing the Wii's online features. According to Iwata, the Wii's future "could have been different" if they'd agreed to outsource rather than relying solely on their internal teams.

However, Iwata revealed Nintendo won't be making the same mistake again. He let slip that Nintendo is working with outside parties to facilitate development of the 3DS and Wii successor's online capabilities. "You may be aware of some features which I am implying now in relation to the future developments of Nintendo 3DS and Wii's successor system that we announced yesterday," said Iwata, before explaining he simply cannot be more "specific", probably until E3 when Nintendo has revealed it'll be outing the Wii's successor in full.

Whats the betting E3 see's the big N decide that outside help isn't needed & they develop another console that has poor online facilities .
Nah only kidding but i'm glad they did it to Sony as i don't fancy gimmick controls or added fees to play online. I just hope Nintendo get better 3rd party games this time .
