I am sure many would welcome its addition.

I hope this comes to pass. If the Lichtspeer developers did reveal this then I don't think Nintendo will be very happy with them.

"lol, no"? Jaguar, what are you a troll? It literally takes NOTHING away from the experience for ANYONE. It's just an added bonus, giving more replayability to games. Stop being such a bandwagonning cunt. Idiot.

It's about time. Wish they would of done this on the Wii U

I'm willing to bet those downvotes came from self proclaimed diehard fanboys rather than nintenhaters

...happy new year!...

Welcome to 2005 Nintendo!

Wrong.... achievements have been around a decade or so before that.

Shake things up by adding what every other gaming platform including phones got? Nope, it just means you got a little extra entertainment for the completionist like me. I'm happy for it if it comes but it's no game changer and if it doesn't immediately give my already achieved awards I'll be annoyed. I remember 100 hours in warframe-dynamic-octavia-theme then they give it trophies after and though my progress for all trophies were complete I had to do it over if I wanted, I said screw it

I think the author means they could shake things up by handling achievements very differently. For example, the My Nintendo coins that you use to "purchase" discounts, themes, and such. Achievements that actually give you something could be a really cool thing if done well.

MS does that in a way already tho. Also wasn't Sony doing that in the US? I remember a friend saying they get something for it or some reward program. But I couldn't do it in canada

You mean like what Ubisoft did with Uplay?

porkChop337d ago

MS and Sony have had a few achievements in the past that have unlocked in-game skins or console themes. It's very rare though, and not quite the same as a system that could be entirely built around that idea.

Sort of like Uplay, yes, but as a system-level function it could potentially be done on a much bigger scale. But that's probably the closest thing, yeah.

I will go buy a switch as soon as it's confirmed, otherwise I'm fine with my new 3ds xl and Wii u

RedDevils337d ago

And that is the reason why you buy a game console? lol I wonder how manage in the n64 or PS1 days
