Nintendo's Satoru Iwata recently said the Wii U's NFC, currently under development, is planned to be tested this year.

Jesus...NFC doesn't even work? I'd like to know what percentage of the actual intended (prior to launch, anyway) features were actually available at launch, and it'll be interesting to see how long it actually takes Nintendo to get everything rolled out. Yes, I'm aware that other platforms have had functionality patched it, but that was more so because of how those platforms' respective markets changed. The way Nintendo's handling Wii U is a freaking joke.
