Never owned a Wii U, but Miiverse looks like it was a spiritual successor to Pictochat.
Me neither but it was also on 3DS. I assume it was largely the same between the two systems but I don't actually know.

Maybe. I mean, we could Google it or ask someone but I fear the effort exceeds the reward.

With the near total lack of standard features on Switch, I think Nintendo missed out on including their own unique apps like Miiverse to fill the void.

Switch's features and online are a step down from Wii U.

And 3DS. And Wii. And arguably DSi. It's better than GameCube, though, even though Dreamcast and Xbox matched or exceeded it. Pretty spectacular jump backward, I must say.

Did PS2 have much in the way of online? I know certain countries had Netflix...

Just ran into a former regular customer from my old job who we banned from the store because he was creepy to women

So that was fun.

I have a theory as to why Nintendo is behind on online.

As you know, Nintendo is a VERY Japan-oriented company, more so than Sony. And contrary to the popular belief of Japan being some futuristic utopia, the country is actually pretty behind in technology. A lot of Japanese companies still use fax machines, and a lot of businesses won't let you use credit cards.

Miiverse was basically Twitter for 8-year-olds and it was exactly as wild as you would expect

I never heard that about Japan. That still wouldn't explain why Nintendo's services and features are regressing.

All Nintendo had to do was improve on the Wii U's services.

The worst part is, Nintendo knows they'll still sell a **** of hardware, and as long as they keep making money, they don't see any reason to improve.

That'll fly for a while but they can only get by doing that for so long, I think. Handhelds can probably be excused by most people but if they make another traditional home console it'll be a really tough sell.
