Like many others I was on the fence on whether or not I will be getting this console, and it looks like Nintendo has made the decision easier for me to make now. -_-

Nintendo, catering to stupid children since... Forever. To be fair, though, we don't know how exactly FCs will be used yet but just knowing the nanny system still exists doesn't help sway my decision towards buying one of these things.

Poop.

I really can't think of a reason why Nintendo would want to include anything related to friend codes in their Wii U. Seriously, it's just 100% bad press even if it turns out great. The only reason that makes sense to me is they want some sort of compatibility with Wii friend code systems. Who knows.

Friend codes are the reason why I only have 4 friends on my friends list on the Wii and DS. Kinda long-winded...

Not having a social service like PSN or XBL is the main reason why I never use the Wii. Dunno how much of an improvement the Miiverse will be, but seriously, drop the friend codes.

So rather than do away with friendcodes, they hide it and simplify it to where it would be useless but still keep it in anyways just cuz?


...sometimes nintendo I wonder about you...

well what's so bad about wii points? get you some NES/SNES/N64 awesomeness! I had a Wii for about a year and the novelty wore out very fast, pretty much after you beat all the first party games the system is worthless more or less in my opinion. I don't see the Wii-U being much different to be honest.
