Still grinding your teeth when it comes to Nintendo's online friend code system? Well, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime told Kotaku that a better system is coming to the Wii U.
"There are friend codes, but it's not the existing friend code system," Fils-Aime said. "What do I mean by that? Here's what I mean: you will be able to identify people as friends and have a certain level of interaction vs. a different level of interaction for the more general population. The method by which you identify someone as a friend is a lot simpler than what's happening today with Friend Codes."
Achievements will also be coming to the platform, but unlike similar offerings from Microsoft or Sony, Nintendo won't be mandating their addition in every title.
"We will have [achievements]," Fils-Aime said. "Once you start getting into game-specific [Achievements] that's developer driven."
While the Wii U will allow users to download titles digitally - like Nintendo's future 3DS offerings - the system won't sport a huge hard drive. Users will still have to connect a USB hard drive if they wish to download a large number of titles. http://www.gamesindustry.biz/article...nd-code-system
