Twitch streaming not coming to Wii U because it’s not fun, says Nintendo
Nintendo, despite its partnership with Twitch, has decided against offering the streaming service in Wii U because “streaming 30 minutes of gameplay” isn’t fun.
Speaking with Polygon at E3 2014 this week, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime said the addition of a streaming service on Wii U mist adhere to the company’s core philosophy: it has to be fun.
“We don’t think streaming 30 minutes of gameplay by itself is a lot of fun,” Fils-Aime said, adding that the exclusion is not a dig, per se, at Twitch.
“We’re looking to do a lot of great things with Twitch,” he continued. The Nintendo Treehouse Live at E3 that we’re executing through Twitch is doing fantastic numbers. Just purely streaming gameplay, what we’ve got to think through is, so what’s fun about that? From a consumer standpoint, what’s fun about it?”
