Although it's shorter than the Wii Codes, Let us make our own god dam user names. I understand why they won't since their hardware is all about the kids or younger age people, they wouldn't want people with inappropriate names.
But still

there should be no numbers in the first place, NGP is so much better

STFU I'm tired of this site.. It's crawling with lame PS fanboys that want to shove their Sony bullshit down our throats

But he's right, whole friend codes system is plain retarded. You don't need to be fanboy to realize that.

DenyTheFacts, your name suits you.

A friend code system for online is just a terrible idea, I mean they've improved it so that it no longer changes per game but it's still a shoddy idea. It should be account based with features being tied to those accounts.

One thing I'm wondering about is how will the DS store's purchases transfer to the 3DS?

Yeah there's no reason why they could't have created some sort of user-friendly friend system like PSN and XBL where you have an actual name. They better at least have actual names on the Wii 2.

You do get to make your own names. The name and Mii you make will pop up on your friends friends list. You wont be seeing 123-456-789 is playing Ocarina of Time.

blumatt2697d ago

Oh ok. I didn't realize that. It still should be like the other systems where you just send a request to add a friend with their gamer tag and you don't have to fool with some cumbersome number system.

Better but too long still.

12 digits?

Wtf, how long was the last one?

Anyway, won't be using that crappy system anyway, give me my fcking zelda already.

FrankMcSpank2697d ago

I felt like I was making a creditcard purchase everytime I played online. So it's only using one friend code or is there separate codes for each game still?

nikola9872697d ago (Edited 2697d ago )

only one code

SpLinT2698d ago

lmao . they should just cancel this damn thing to save themselves the embarrassment. Friend codes? seriously?

PlayerX2698d ago
