Miiverse Does Exactly What Nintendo Said it Would Do

GenGAME writes: "Nintendo billed Miiverse as their way of connecting the “social” element of gaming – even single-player gaming – to the Internet via online interactions. This means sharing secrets and tips, victories and defeats, opinions about games, and so on – all stuff that people do with their gaming friends and online communities already, but now available right from the game console, and even directly from the games. And, having sat down to experience Miiverse integration in the final product, I can safely say that it does exactly what Nintendo said it was going to do." (Miiverse, Wii U)

If Nintendo plays their cards right and add some sort of solid achievement/trophy system the way Xbox 360 did, or the way Sony did shortly after releasing the PS3, it could forever be a part of gaming. I could already imagine getting a tough achievement/trophy and posting it up with a comment or quick sketch, and interact with everyone in the community either by gloating or helping someone get that same one. There are so many possibilities with this app and I for one, hope that Nintendo realizes and actually evolves it into something great if not a new revolutionary standard.

Not needed this MiiVerse is better than any achievment or acomplishment system in my eyes who needs it when you can jump on miiverse or just chat to any1 in wiiuchat.

I personally don't care much about an achievement/trophy system but I don't dislike the idea if they decide to use it in the near future.

I wonder what should they call it of they do. 'Accomplishments' sounds too generic to me. They would probably use something unique.
What do you think?

Stars! :D

Stars? Not bad, not bad at all. Very Nintendo-esque.

Now that you mention that how about coins? Could use Blue and Red coins too depending of the achievement. (Would love it if it used the 8-bit SMB coin collect sound for extra oomph)
