No Trophies Or Achievements For Wii U

#1sknmakPosted 11/12/2012 7:52:34 AM
Unfortunately, according to Jeremiah Slaczka of 5th Cell, the Wii U will not include a universal trophy system like other consoles. However, individual games/developers can include their own versions of achievements in games.

Slaczka had the following to say:

“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.”

Is the exclusion of achievements a make or break deal for you? In my opinion, it really does not bother me. I am fine with in-game only achievements, such as the trophies in Smash Bros.

What are your thoughts?

Don't care.

I used to care about trophies alot. I would rush through games and use guides to find trophies quicker and easier, I would also grind to the point where I would get bored and sick of the game just to get trophies.

I stopped caring when I got my 3DS though. Gaming seems so much enjoyable when I'm not obsessed over virtual pictures.

Damn, that sucks. Pretty much everyone else (PC gaming through Steam/Origin, flash games online (Armor games, Kongregate), iOS, Android, 360, PS3, Vita, etc all have them...

Me after Super Mario 3D Platformer U: man that was a good game. too bad it's over and I probably won't play it again.

Me after Halo 4: Man that was a great game. Time to play it on Legendary.

Doesn't affect me in any way. Still not interested in a Wii U.

I actually bet developers are a bit happy if they can choose to add achievements. Because I'm pretty sure for retail copies Microsoft forces them to have achievements.

Now that's a good joke.
