3DS eases Multiplayer

by Player911 3 Comments
The Nintendo 3DS fixes some of that when it hits Japan in February and the U.S and Europe in March. The new Friend Code system will now be tied directly to the 3DS you own and there will only be one for each system, so no more secondary Friend Codes for games.

The system, Nintendo tells us, will also be able to remember the codes you put in for your Friends and track whether they are currently online or not. If they're online, one of the lights in the top right corner of the portable will glow orange to alert you.

The 3DS will have an app that tracks and can give you the current status of your friends at any given time.

And finding and becoming friends sounds like it will sometimes be easier as well. While we don't yet know if they Friend Code will be a 16-digit number, or even a number at all, we do know that you will have to exchange them just once with your friend to offer and accept a friendship on the 3DS.

But if you're connected with another friend via local wireless, you won't even have to do that. Instead you can push a button to accept or send friend requests and the 3DS will take down the number automatically and remember it.

Pretty much the best news i've heard all day. Still too bad they haven't actually announced an account system with gamertags or anything. That would be too good. I bet it's still a numbered friend code system.

I heard that it will still be a 16 digit number and that both people have to add each other.

I just like the feature on the 360 where it shows "Recently Played". Most of my friends come from playing with them in random games and wanting to add them afterwards.

A good online experience requires I be able to play random multiplayer games with random people, and request friendship afterwards if I had a good time. Also being able to log in and see who is online and what they are playing. When I log in and several of my friends are playing Halo Reach, then I'll throw in Halo Reach and jump in. It's great.

And everytime I play games alone, I end up in a party of like 8-16 awesome people who we all eventually friend request.
