Death to the Friend Code?
Multiple sources are reporting that Nintendo’s next home console will not utilize the much hated Friend Code system for its online component. We do not have 100% confirmation this is in fact going to happen. Though, if it does, what exactly will they replace it with? We do not know just yet, but Ubisoft is one company that is embracing the online component for Wii U wholeheartedly, especially with the upcoming “Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Online,” which will be released for Nintendo’s next home console and PC.
This news supposedly comes from a third-party roundtable discussion with Nintendo at E3 2011. The expo will end on June 9, so there is still a chance we could get more info until then.
