For the past few days we’ve been wondering what ‘Nintendo Network’ could be. In response to a customer’s question on the matter, the following was said by a customer service representative:
Nintendo WFC (Wi-Fi Connection) and Nintendo Network are one and the same. This is not to be confused with any other network or connection as our servers are integrated to one another.
And there you have it. It seems like ‘Nintendo Network’ is just a re-branding of ‘Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection’, though we won’t know for sure until we receive an official statement from Nintendo.
