    Sweet. Exchanging FCs was a hassle.

    It was the inevitable step after the 3DS generalized each system to one code each instead of per game.

    Yes
    Finally. It's nice to see Nintendo moving on (:

    Also, it's a shame that the 3DS still got Friend Codes. Maybe a future update on the 3DS will change the Friend Codes?

    A big step in the right direction.
    Here's hoping that the new Smash Brothers has a good, working online experience this time around.
    Face it, Brawl had crappy random matches that forced 4 player if possible and only for two minutes, and they lagged like hell.

    Oh boy! Can't wait to be playing a game on there and have someone drop 40,000 n-bombs, insults revolving around gay, and the rest playing music through their mic.

    Yeah, voice chat kinda blows. Nintendo would be smart in most respects to not use it, but they most likely will.

    I cannot wait for SSB on the Wii U!
    The online will be so great with it.
    Anyway here's what i want:
    1. Friend Requests
    2. Friend Lists which can see info on friends and if they're online and what they are doing
    3. Voice chat during mario kart and such
    4. Video chat with friends
    5. A good messaging system like the Wii mail thing but where you can send game/video chat invites

    They can easily remedy that. Make it so you can mute a player, party chat (which is what everyone Xbox basically uses anyways)..

    Obviously it's a lot better not having friend codes, but friend codes aren't bad if it's done right.

    They should have had it similar to the Nintendo 3DS, but slightly improved. A universal code that is only needed once, but when you add someone, it sends them a request. It is dumb how both people have to add each other. Other than that, the system isn't bad.

    But, yeah. No friend codes makes everyone more happy.

    [​IMG] Nintendo finally gets it! Here's hoping that the online service will be something beyond the Xbox Live and PSN services.
