    Obviously the discussion in the video above is going to be a little tough for some to understand, myself included. What we do get out of the video comes from Nintendo's Harald Ebert. According to him, the design of the 3DS is not yet final. This goes hand-in-hand with what Capcom said, as they believe the d-pad is still being tweaked. Of course, this goes against what other Nintendo employees have said, as they stated that the design shown at E3 was the finished product.

    We also hear that gamers looking for an achievement system that comes implemented into every game are going to have to look elsewhere. While not set in stone, it's not looking good for a system-wide setup for achievements. Nintendo isn't going to mandate anything, so third party devs will have to implement their own achievement system on a game-by-game basis.[/p]

    Yes it is. What they had at E3 was basically the final retail case design.

    It makes a system feel less of a "Put this game in, Finish done!" and more of a central system where you spend time using the system more as a "Put in the game and play it" and more of a "Put in the game, play it and then see what else i can do on my system"

    Sorry but as i am from germany and i totally get every word in this video i can confirm you that this nice lady in the beginning said that even the button layout could still change. She said its just a case to present the technology and its not final. It may be the same design in the end but it isnt for sure.

    NOOO NINTENDO WHAT ARE YOU DOING!!!

    The next thing is that we will hear: "Online has never been so easy and safe with friend codes on the 3DS".....

    Friend codes ruined the wii and ds online...

    Why does this seem like a really bad excuse for something? Surely the design is done, been done since E3 2010.

    What she said was, that the current models was put together as a shell for the tech so it could be shown to the public. She said, that it could change quite a bit and even the button placement is not final. how credible the woman is I don`t know but I for one would welcome a design change, since I think the system has too many unnecessary edges...

    Well, I think it would be pretty lame not to implement a systemwide achievement system.

    Why no achievements? I would love such a system on Wii, why not Nintendo?
    It's time to finally get with the online times and lose those damned FC's and other stupid things! [​IMG]

    No achievements! Why nintendo, why? I like the current design but wouldn't mind a few changes. I don't know why nintendo keep on refraining from introducing an achievement system. And they better not have those damn friend codes again.......

    But getting trophies or achievements is fun. There's some type of odd joy you get out of having that little achievement sound and notification pop up when you're play a Xbox game. They also add play time to the game since you may play the game again or do side quests and other bonuses just to get an achievement.

    And very few people play games purely for achievements. If a game is bad they'll odds drop it since it's bad. But if they're playing a good game they may want to get all the achievements for it because it's a good game.

    This man, and I would love showing off my gamers score to my friends and other people.... They better put this in their next homeconsole, together with multimedia playback, better graphics, harddisk and some other shit. Most important thing it's as easy to hack as the Wii though!

    Nintendo already has it's own 'achievement system'. When you're playing Wii Sports or other games like that, you get a Wii message saying what you did.
    Same goes for Mario Kart Wii and Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Can't remember if it happened on 1)
