No universal achievements system on the Wii U

Wrong decision?

Posted By | On 12th, Nov. 2012

Nintendo has decided not to opt for a compulsory achievements system for the Wii U, which can turn out to be a pretty bad move.

Developers have been given the ability to implement achievements or not on the Wii U, as the system does not feature a system-wide achievements system. This could be a bad move since most developers are usually lazy and won’t really use the additional options given to them. Case in point, the PS3’s screenshot feature which is not compulsory but developers don’t really use it.

This was revealed by Jeremiah Slazka on NeoGAF, where he said “There are no Wii U accomplishments that are system-wide.”

“Scribblenauts Unlimited loosely has them in the form of ‘Global Starite Shards’ which is like a giant checklist of global things to spawn and do in the game that aren’t area specific.”

Now this may impact third-party software sales on the system as gamers have proven to be a selective bunch. It’s amazing how I managed to generalize developers and gamers in one news post, but hey, prove me wrong! Or don’t.
