The Wii U TVii function has been one of the best additions to Nintendo’s latest console, allowing users to control what they watch and when with a single remote. TiVo was supposed to be part of this package and Nintendo insisted that it would be coming in the month of January. With today being the last day of the month, Nintendo has revealed that both TiVo and Google Maps functionality will take more time and they have set a tentative “early 2013” release window.
Google Maps with Street View was supposed to be available in January as well, but there’s no word on what the delay is in getting the service to work with the Wii U GamePad. With both features being pushed back to early 2013, this means another of Nintendo’s early promises for the console has gone unfulfilled. There’s little wonder investors are starting to doubt Nintendo with all the pushbacks and delays. What do you think of these developments? Should Nintendo have waited to launch the Wii U this year instead of pushing it out the door for the holiday season last year?
