GV: As the system is now available in North America we have more information about it.
Man I was really hoping they wouldn't do this. It's the same as the 3DS. The Wii U doesn't have the memory limitations of the 3DS so storing as many friends as I want shouldn't be impossible. This is especially bad since Nintendo is trying make Miiverse like a social network. A social network doesn't make me limit the amount of friends I have. Can't say that I'm not disappointed by this. Hope they increase the limit in the future via an update or something.
I don't think it is currently a crucial problem. I mean, the console is brand new, so how many friends you gonna find and add immediately with a Wii U? I would hope and expect that once Nintendo settle down and have a stable online system they will be able to increase the size of the list within a couple of years. Pretty much what Microsoft did too. Seriously how many people are you gonna find with such a limited number of games right after launch?
Why would you have over a hundred friends on ANY console lol? You would have constant notifications of people signing in and out not too mention how could you even remember who everyone is? I would only need about 20....forever alone :(
I have gotten close to maxing out my list on PSN. I don't know about other systems, but the PS3 lets you disable notifications. Also, I play a variety of genres, series, and games; it would be nice to never have to worry if I can have a good party on me at any given time for any given game. In fact, I wish games let you create a friends list just for that game so you always have someone to play with.
I haven't seen the official on the friends deal. Can someone answer a few questions? Are they using Friendcodes still? Can you finally make an online name and stick with it? How close is their community to PSN/Live in terms of chatting, messaging, and being connected? @FACT Excellent news. Thanks man.
All you need to know. http://kotaku.com/5958419/i... If you don't want to click the link, yes, they are using ID's now like psn and XBL.
Not botherd by this at all 100 is enough plus you can just remove people you don't play with anymore.
So its the same as the ps3 then.
inb4 "Buh the Wii U is suppased to be ah next gen consula so it shoe hav moar space for fwiends!"
