Hmmmmm.... Not sure how games are going to handle system friends vs Game friends yet.
And I'm super stingy with system wide friends lists.
Have you had a chance to play Con2 yet punch?
It'll probably work similar to the 3DS, where your system code/ID is what you use universally for friends in all games. So once you have my friend ID, you can see what games I'm playing and join me (if I enable that). You should still be able to create different profile names in game though.
The only thing I don't understand is how you'll send friend requests in the middle of a game. Perhaps you can view people's ID profiles in game (like Xbox Live) and then send them a request. That's what I'd guess.
Anyone with Black Ops II seen something like that yet?
