Wii U Trophy/Achievement Petition

The XBOX 360 and PlayStation 3 have been good to us this generation. They’ve not only given us great games to play and new ways to play them, they’ve given us a sort of online diary to keep track of all of our wonderful experiences, and the ability to share out gaming accomplishments with other players and online social communities. The Wii U is the newest of the high definition consoles to grace us with great games and a completely new social community (Miiverse), but there’s still one thing missing… an online record of our gaming experiences and accomplishments. While trophies/achievements may not be important to every gamer, there are plenty who live for the jingle every time they earn one of the digital accolades, and Nintendo has built the perfect social application for sharing and talking about such accomplishments with Miiverse...

Hey all. I'm having a problem getting the signature counter to work, but the e-mails are going through to Nintendo. They are already returning typical PR e-mails to petition signers. If you would like to e-mail Nintendo directly, here is the e-mail address [email protected] Thank's for your time and support on this matter. Please share this petition with your gaming friends, and on gaming message boards. If there is enough support, Nintendo may listen.

Trophy/achievement support is one of the reason I will ALWAYS buy multiplatform on the other consoles and yes, it's that important for me.

Give us accomplishments Nintendo.

Tank's for the support, I strongly agree, but for some reason there are almost as many detractors as supporters. I don't get it... I can understand not giving a crap about trophies/achievements, but being against more features? That just blows my mind. I like my Wii U, but like you, my multiplatform games will be played elsewhere until a system is put in place. It's not about the size of my trophy/achievement score, it's just a feature Nintendo is missing at this point in time, and Nintendo Network is a perfect place for such a system.

Also, thank's to everyone else for their support below. Nintendo has received almost 350 e-mails from gamers taking the time to sign the petition today, and I haven't even promoted it except here and on IGN. If Nintendo doesn't see a demand from that, then they are clearly turning a blind eye to us.

Achievement/trophy gives much more value to the package and it increases the replayability and competitivity.

It's something really important for millions of players nowadays. I hope Nintendo will give us an update including this kind of system.

I think it is silly that nintendo does not just add achievements because of how important it is to some people.

However with that said achievements mean literally nothing to me. I own 3 systems and i have yet to gain any type of satisfaction from any achievement system. I kinda think most people just use this as something to cry about.

How about calling them "Wiiwards"?

SockeyBoy3953d ago

Nice...what about Miiwards?

pixelsword3953d ago

Good one, you should go on their boards and declare that.

InTheZoneAC3953d ago

or Nintend.ards!

J/K, but what was Nintendo thinking? Can the casual developers not create an achievement system without such problems that they don't force it upon them for each game that comes out?

Jek_Porkins3953d ago

I signed it, I think its a great idea and it would be super easy for third party developers to add them since they already to them for the Xbox 360/PS3.

PS3 didn't launch with a system, but I remember a ton of complaints and eventually Sony listened, so hopefully Nintendo offers them in the future as well, it just sucks that not every game will have them from the start, which is one of the things I liked about the Xbox 360.

It seems incredibly strange that any console released post this gen doesn't have an trophy/achievement system.....

Eorl3953d ago

Probably because its a useless system that doesn't encourage anything besides sharing ones e-peen levels?
