      1. Don’t hate on one of the best fans on this site. Donzaloog is a legend. Leave luck to heaven (Nintendo).

      2. Are you fucking stupid or something? Donzaloog isn’t a fan — he’s just a yes-man. A sycophant. The last time he ever had issue with Nintendo was their E3 conference this year, but other than that, he never says no to Nintendo. Seriously, that was like the one damn time he was truly objective.

      3. Because I’m not a whiny fanboy like you, that means I’m a sycophant? Fail! Try again, troll.

      4. Well, you do seem more tolerant of Nintendo than most, but you’re by no means a sycophant.

      5. You’re a basement dwelling Nintendo-loving virgin, and by the way “Leave Luck to Heaven” isn’t an accurate translation of what Nintendo actually means. Less Wikipedia and more being an open minded gamer rather than a sad brand loyalist for a company who doesn’t care about their fans.

      6. There is no direct to english translation of the word Nintendo. Leave luck to heaven is the closest one. Maybe you should do some proper research before you post so you don’t confirm what people already think of you, that you’re an attention seeking idiot.

        This is my last reply to you. I’m not in the habit of feeding trolls.

      7. I specifically made a point that it is not a translation of “Nintendo”. No matter how “close” it is, it’s just one of many translations that ultimately doesn’t sum up the company’s name.

        Putting it in the majority of your comments as a signature makes you look like little more than a deluded fanboy who would wipe their rear ends no matter how much they screw the gamers over.

      8. I dont really get how that makes him a yes man? I havent found any reason to be angry at nintendo since the conference, which while it was poor, their entire E3 was good.
        Everything after thats been pretty good news (dont say 3DSXL, its just another choice, not a remodel)

  1. This would be amazing and would open up the doors for many other new features. Unified achievements, cross-system save files for the likes of Brawl, NES savestates, etc., and an easy way to connect with the Miiverse.

    Looking forward to the Wii U more and more each day!

      1. Well seeing as you can sign into your account on any WiiU it would make sense to have a Cloud save feature.

      3. you will have to have a 3DS or 3DS XL in order to play Super Mario Bros.2. If the System you are talking about doesn’t play 3DS games then you won’t be able to play it.

      4. He’s talking about the future when there’s a 3DS successor. I’m going to guess that 3DS games will be compatible as there will still be an eShop, similarly to how DSiWare can be purchased on the 3DS.

      5. Oh I see. Yeah I would assume that we would be able to play it on a successor, at least on the next one which could be years from now.

    1. Yeah, they should have done this ages ago, but better late than never. Sending them a valid police report seems like a lot of hassle though.

      1. come to think of it, what if you happen to lose your 3DS ??? I guess then ALL your downloaded games and apps would be gone too.
        I know I can re-download my games to a new PSP if I were to lose my current one. I think PSN has a set limit of 5 or 6 re-downloads. That’s plenty.
        Hmmm… , Some people might do a false Police report after losing their 3DS in order to recover their digital games.

    1. Unlikely, are you hoping so you can buy titles that dont make it out of Japan? . Because, seeing as they’re having a full digital store, they might put the JRPG titles and other games that dont make it out of Japan on there, seeing as they dont have to worry about production and shipping costs

      1. But they’d still have to translate it and possibly provide new voice actors for it. Seems like a lot of work for something that probably isn’t going to sell well

  2. I think it would be neat if we could play 3DS games on the Wii U and Wii U games on the 3DS, at least the ones that shouldn’t require high specs like New Super Marios U. I like being able to play the same games on my away from home (or on the couch, away from big TVs, etc.) device, and also to be able to play that same game on a much bigger screen whenever I want. Kind of like Gameboy Advance and Gameboy Player all over again.

    1. I guess the 3DS>Wii U thing would work bu then people would only buy Wii U, 3DS sales would plummet. However, the opposite is impossible, while it may seem simple to port higher graphic games to other consoles, it’s really very complicated and it would be impossible for people to just say “ta-daaaa! Wii U on 3DS!” even if it was games requiring low graphical powers. And there wold be lost sales in games released on both platforms.

      Like

      1. Sales wouldnt plummet because youd have to have a 3DS anyway to play the game. It could give us the possibility of seeing another Four Swords game, or at least seeing it released on the store

      1. Some people will lie to get a Police report in order to recover the games. Nintendo should just let you re-download them if you register a new system with them, they could put a limit of say 5 or 6 re-downloads per game like Sony does. It will make people a lot more comfortable buying a lot of digital games.

        Like

      2. So what if you are, though? Why not just let people re-download the stuff they bought digitally? If they’re not going to lower the prices, they could at least do that.

        And still, that doesn’t help you if you drop it in water or run it over with a car or just lose it. People should have a way to recover their purchases if something were to happen. Outside of filing a police report.

  3. I just wish I could download my eshop games on my “new” 3DS’s without the stupid transfer method, that method even has a limit. I know not many people will buy that many 3DS’s but there’s still a limit =/. I’d just like to get a new system, log in, download my games and apps and enjoy it, even if my old one is stolen. now I have to go get a police report and show it to nintendo to get my eshop titles back?… =/..

    Nintendo is slowly doing the right thing, and I’m looking forward to it! They just need to do it a little bit better :3 At this rate I still wont feel safe to download my games off of the eShop…

  4. Once again Latin America is not taken into account, shame on NOA for not taking this region seriously.

    Regarding th unified account system, I was already specting this. I suppose you create a “Nintendo Account” and then register your 3DS’s code into it, or something similar.

    Like

    1. I imagine you’d make the account on the Wii U and be offered a merger in some kind of 3DS software update. And on the Latin America thing, while it would be good to have more support, it’s much more complicated and time consuming to release there. It’s not as simple as “Boom, everyone in Latin America can have a Nintendo Network Account now! La dee dah!”

      1. Once again, Latin America is ignored. I just hate to see that even after so many years, Nintendo hasn’t considered the market in here. There are thousands, if not millions of gamers in here that are loyal to Ninty, despite the fact that we don’t even have eShop (we only can access as US residents… and that sucks). We don’t even have access to Club Nintendo either so we are left out of many offers and prices.
        Sony and Microsoft already have their services available here for years now. What’s taking them so long? why are they ignoring us?

    1. You could buy a mini-tracker and stick it inside your 3DS system yourself, though, if it’s really that much of an issue.
      I’ve had my games stolen before, and it’s always a smart idea to know your enemies and make friends with the right people, though, so that the theft has a much lower chance of happening.

  7. But wait, if we would have the same account on the WiiU and 3DS, wouldn’t that mean we’d still keep friend codes as well? FUUUU-

    Like

    1. It wouldn’t be tied to the device framework but rather the network framework.

      As for the “friend code” on Wii U, based on statements I’ve seen so far it’s more a part of the user’s account (which is a real account w/ a username) and not for player interactions (that being the way Wii games were).

  8. Frankly I’m not impressed! Why? Because, the Wii U doesn’t shoot directed energy blasts, like the XBOX and PS3 do. When I buy a gaming console, I want it to be able to kill someone so I can protect it. *loads laser Rifle with MicroFusion Cells.*

  9. This had to be announced? I thought it was confirmed a while ago when they said there were going to be no friend codes, but then later amended with the fact that friend codes would be extremely simple. And I thought it was etched into stone when the announced MiiVerse for 3ds after Wii U launches. So color me not surprised. It’s kinda basic shit. Sorry just don’t think its news-worthy.
