Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime believes that Miiverse is the system’s killer application. Reggie went on to say that the Wii U social network is a “paradigm shift” that consumers need to experience to fully understand. He also believes that Miiverse will be a “key differentiator” for Nintendo against its competitors.

“As the network grows and the installed base grows, it will prove to be a true killer application for the system, and I say this loving what we have done with Nintendo TVii and loving all the games.”

“Until you try it and experience it, you may not totally understand it.”

“People have to leave the current paradigm behind to understand what we are trying to do. Miiverse is going to be embedded right on the game platform, so literally some of the activity will be able to happen immediately as people experience it.”
