But while Nintendo did open up TVii in December, TiVo support was delayed until January 2013. Obviously, the month is about over, and you're not using that DVR with a GamePad quite yet. Nintendo is now planning for an "early 2013" release date for TiVo functionality; sort of vague.
Google Maps and Street View also remain delayed, but Nintendo has attached its launch date to sometime in the first quarter of the year. Strangely, "early 2013" and Q1 2013 sound awfully similar.
News of further software delays arrives on the heels of Nintendo's Q3 financials. While the company has moved 3.06 million Wii U units globally as of December, Nintendo hasreduced its expected sales target by 1.5 million units through the end of March.
