According to the latest edition of Japanese gaming bible Famitsu Super Street Fighter IV 3D edition will feature the dreaded friend codes.
Was there really a point in friend codes before hand? Hardly anybody used theirs. I know I barely used mine on my DS.
- Friend codes - Region lock - Short autonomy - Overpriced Hehe Nintendo is just awesome.
I'm sensing sarcasm.
Try saying that to my Nintendo fanboy friend. Seriously. He brings his Wii into college with it's own little screen, he only plays on his Wii or DS. He wont go near a PS3 or a 360. I once invited him round to try out Kinect and he wouldn't. He's into dragons. Hardcore, but so not hardcore at the same time >;l I mean seriously. Xbox 360/PS3 are for hardcore gamers. The Wii is a FAMILY product, not something a 17 year old male should be playing on. I mean, 16/17 of us in our class go on our 360's, ps3's or pc's. He is the only Nintendo fan. He said he got bullied in school for it. Maybe its a sign. Anyway. You guys dont care so feh xD
seriously i was looking forward to this now im in a state of meh...
Friends codes wouldn't even be bad provided the damn things weren't Game-specific and it was only one universal code.
Yeah, let's hope they're universal if there are any.
didnt nintendo learn their mistakes with the wii?
The Wii and the DS sold (sells) zillions so for them no mistake was made.
They would have sold and would be selling more if it had good free online like the PS3. I for one wouldn't have traded in my Wii if i had more online games to play, and if i could use a universal ID for all of my names + have a friends list to chat and play with, etc. Hardcore games would also sell more, and maybe actually exist if online was decent. I'm sure im not alone on this either. Nintendo's online system is terrible.
-_- gtfo please be wrong...
Never felt so terrible xd
there's nothing official, let's wait...
Oh dear ....
Oh dear, indeed. First, region lock. Now, Friend Codes. Come on, Nintendo.
my thoughts exactly
Region locked!? Sigh.. that sucks!!!
Im sorry but no matter what the 3ds has its not getting my money..Im getting the psp2
i'm getting 3DS...keep overhyping PSP2...i bet it makes breakfast while installing GOW for the low price of $499..lol.
Keep buying an inferior machine, that could of been made 5 years ago, having features that developers will never be able to use at its fullest potential. Seriously, if the 3D can be turned off, it means it's not the main feature (ironic how it's in the name though... 3DS). The wii is a motion gaming system, it has its games that use classic controller but most of its games use motion sensing, but since not everyone can adapt to 3D like they do with motion sensing, they will just have to make games that the 3D feature is just optional and just an add-on. Puzzle games would really benefit from this 3D but sadly, since some people have only 1 eye or can't perceive 3D, they can't force it on consumers like some wii games. That's not mentioning the fact that the 3DS COULD cost $300 and 3DS games COULD cost $50, yet you troll about prices....lol
I agree, there has to be some bit of truth from all these 3ds leaks and it aint looking so hot right now! What sony need to do is have two analogue sticks, trophies, awesome graphics and a COD launch title....that should set the pace for sony.
getting both , but dont mind me , keep trolling
the PS3 was made over 5 years ago...there goes your logic. I'll keep buying the most FUN ONES! You buy overhyping. :)
Wow, really? LOL. The PS3 was made 5 years ago but a portable version would of been impossible for mass production. 3DS has almost the same graphics as the current PSP, which was made 5 years ago, they just added 3D into it (which I told you isn't even the main feature), same friend codes as 5 years ago, same design as 5 years ago, etc. Plain and Simple: The 3DS could of been made 5 years ago, the PSP2 could not. You keep buying those overhyped nintendo hanhelds :) with no good launch games, horrible battery, friend codes :) PS: Next time, try using logic better before actually speaking about it...LOL
Is a friend code like a username or is it that stupid thing that they have on the Wii.
16 digit user code. 16 freakin digits...
Yea way too much to memeorize. Studies say the brain is good at memorizing up to 7 digits.
oh man, this is a big turn-off for me, i hate friend codes (even more after using steam for such a long time... dunno if i will buy a 3DS anymore...
Nintendo really need to get a gamertag thing going. I can't be bothered to right down a number so I can remember it later. Names I could !
Nintendo will you ever grow up?
BUT ..BUT .. WHY.jpg
nintendo fans are the worst. they always hope for nintendo to make a powerful console, they always hope for core games but the worst thing is they think nintendo cares what they want. these are the same fanboys who will think that a game like the conduit looks as good as killzone 2. i dont care what anyone says but the 3ds is a failure before release in my eyes and psp 2 will trounce it. psp 2 will trounce it and the wii.
I wish what you're saying would be true to teach Nintendo a lesson. But you know what? Unless that PSP2 can do what the 3DS does and better/more and at least at the same price point, the PSP2 will find itself in the same position it's in now. Lost to a technically inferior machine.
Boo x 9000 = B009000. That's right, over 9000! Way over. Please don't be official. If it is, I'm not surprised. Nintendo seems hellbent on pissing off the core. And so far, mission accomplished. That being said, I still can't resist the MarioKart call. Damn you! I'm still gonna buy it. *I'm pathetic*
Lets wait till January 19th to find out all the details. Your friend code could be hidden behind a a name for all we know.
Thats me offline, then.
Not everybody is a child nintendo. I'm really pissed that you cannot get rid of friend codes. I takes way too long to enter them and you can't meet new people online and play with them.
Why would they go and make the same mistake twice. I mean come on.
In terms of the profit wii and ds are bringing in for nintendo, they have made no mistake at all! They are in the business to make money, they don't care if the piss off a few hardcores like you or I on N4g.
your right there but still man this sucks.
