In a recent interview on Forbes.com, Nintendo of American President Reggie Fils-Aime addressed a number of pressing issues for Nintendo fans.

Along with admitting that the company will likely fall short of meeting demand for Wii Fit during the holiday season, and that the console will not receive a price cut any time soon, Reggie talked about adding community features to the Wii.

"Nintendo has always had a vision on community... The issue is that we define community differently than our competitors... Our consumers do want a sense of community, and we're going to deliver that--but in a way that is unique to Nintendo."

It's interesting that the company that introduced Mii's to the world has been relatively quiet while Sony worked on Home and Microsoft beefed up the 360's avatars with the New Xbox Experience.

While it sounds like Nintendo plans on taking their community features beyond things like Mii-making contests, it will be worth watching to see how they develop a service to rival what their competitors are now doing. In general, we'd prefer the console makers would focus their efforts on making great games, rather than adding Second Life-inspired features such as Home or avatars in the New Xbox Experience, but then again, we haven't experienced these features ourselves, so hopefully they will surprise.
