RUMOR- 3DS to use a single Friend Code System.

If this is true, then the online system will be similar to Phantasy Star Online/Universe. Where as, you have a player idea, but you can type your own name. This allows more than one person to possess the same name because they are actually identified by their player ID's.

If this is true, very very good move Nintendo. I can deal with this, it's better than the codes per game approach you had for the original DS.

This is awesome. A single system friendcode would mean that you can type your user name over it, and so things will be alot more personal.

Yay! I like this not only because you can keep your own name, but I hate friend requests, to be honest. I actually sort of like the difficulty of both people needing each other's FC logged to communicate in a way, makes it free of spam and people annoying you....

We all should hope that this is TRUE before anything else.

Honestly I dont get the whole Friend Code system...people still do crap even if its a code for each game..

It's easier to have just a name to enter but I'm good with a 16 number friend code and an ID.

Hell, you may just have to enter the ID and names are automatically registered.
