What's happening with that? Are third parties implementing them? Even Apple has them! And if you don't like them, that's cool. But there's no need to trash them. Any word if Nintendo's working on them?

From wikipedia: "To date, Nintendo has not developed any kind of central achievements system for the Wii or Nintendo DS, but a few selected games such as Metroid Prime 3: Corruption and Wii Sports Resort do implement their own systems of achievements"

Is an achievement system really needed?

I know there are achievement hunter out there, but are there really that many?

Apparently Sonic Lost World is going to have an achievement system of sorts.

No, they're not needed the same way high scores are not needed, but they give an incentive to replay some games. It's like trying to beat a friends score.

Closest thing we have is UPlay, which is just for Ubisoft games.

I refuse to buy Pokemon Rumble U until they make a Cyndaquil figurine.

They give replay value, and bragging about having more achievements is no different than bragging about having completed a game in 2 hours or having a high score, so it is a modern need.

Is Metroid's gun part of his armor or is he a cyborg like Data from Star wars?
