It seems highly unlikely that Nintendo will offer Wii U integrated Twitch streaming after Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime told Polygon he just doesn't see what's fun about it.

"We don't think streaming 30 minutes of gameplay by itself is a lot of fun," Fils-Aime told Polygon.

"Your specific question of just purely streaming gameplay, what we've got to think through is, so what's fun about that? From a consumer standpoint, what's fun about it?"

Fils-Aime says Nintendo will use Twitch for events such as its Smash Invitational which took place this week at the Nokia Theatre in LA.

"That has value to us," he explained. "And you can expect us to do more of that type of activity, highlighting our games and providing a forum for players to learn how to play better.

"But that's different than watching Joe Blow's 30 minute stream, which may or may not have something that's all that interesting."

Twitch declined to comment on Nintendo's apparent lack of interest in bringing Twitch to Wii U.

It's almost as if Nintendo has failed to noticed that live streaming is one of the biggest things to happen in gaming for quite some time.
