Nintendo Missed a Step With Not Adding Achievements

PlayStation Beat: With the re-release of Wind Waker upon us, what’s the incentive – outside of the game’s HD visuals – for those to go back and play it again? The Wii U doesn’t have an achievement system.

I would like achievements so my 0 friends on wiiu can see how good i am....seriously I don't know anyone in RL or from my PSN/Steam/battlenet friends list with a WiiU. But i would like achievements, they are pretty cool.

lol "0 friends on wiiu" I dont own one, nor plan on owning one but your comment made me laugh as no one i know has or is thinking of getting a Wiiu which is so weird given they all have had a wii. They all seem hellbent on getting a ps4 and a few an Xbone.

Achievements are for nerds who could never make the football team.

This is their only way of getting trophies.

"Achievements are for nerds who could never make the football team. "

Achievements are for football players who need to compensate for their tiny d/ck.

The author argues throughout the entire article that Nintendo should implement an achievement system, then at the last minute, says it's not important right now and moves on to just bashing the Wii U in general and pushing the reader to buy a PS4 or Xbox One. Quote in point:

"Or if you just wait until November 15 – 22, you can grab a PlayStation 4 and/or Xbox One. Both will have a bigger catalogue of software in three months time, will have actual marketing campaigns, and will at least give you re-assurance that the companies behind the hardware give a shit."

The author is simply using this flimsy achievement argument as a cheap way to push his views that the Wii U is not worth your time at all. Besides, achievements aren't important. No console NEEDS achievements. Are they fun to have? Of course, but anyone who isn't buying a Wii U because it has no achievements or trophies is just not thinking clearly.

Maybe they'll patch it in one day.

It's good for sales, there are people out there who buy games just for trophies and achievements. I wouldn't personally, but I know every trophy hunter out there has the Hannah Montana video game

I don't think it's a big deal though, I'd never not purchase a game I wanted to play because of lack of trophies

Didn't read the article, but agree with the title. Nintendo is so far behind with online it's embarrassing and I'm not just referring to cheevos and trophies. They really need to hire some people to get their online features and user accounts up to the industry standard set by Sony, Microsoft and even Valve.

Don't forget there's an update coming in October to add new features to the Wii U. I hope achievements are included.

PopRocks3591013d ago

October? You mean they pushed it back again? When was this announced?

7uff11013d ago

It has been some time, they sai it would be between the end of september and beggining of october. We can get it at anytime.

achievements aren't needed when miiverse automatically tagged any posted photos that contains progess or achievements.

I thought about what I said before, achievements are cool, but not necessary, I can stablish my own achievements, some of them are forced and boring, etc, but it's cool to exibit some of your talents in the game. There must be a mid term, because there's an achievement in Assassin's Creed that you have to collect every feather and that kind of thing is boring as hell. Nintendo in it's own way have it's achievements, like trophies in Smash Bros, certain furnitures in Animal Crossing, etc. They just need to be more aparent AND be made for fun purposes :)
