    now people say they want to remove friend codes. i applaud that but i have a question that what could be an alternative to that and how would that be implanted into wii that are already using friend codes?come on people this is a serious issue and thus requires heated discussion.

    It doesn't matter, Nintendo doesn't listen to fans. Friend codes aren't leaving, and there will never be a hard drive for Wii. I swear, I love Nintendo games, but I wish they didn't make hardware. Imagine playing Mario Galaxy with achievements and stuff...would be awesome.

    Not quite sure what your question is...

    If they moved to a different system, it would probably only effect new games made after that. They would not go back and change to the older games, they would continue to use the existing friend code system.

    if they did change, username could work as one option. like the skippy said they wouldnt change the games before the change.

    GamerTags sounds cooler than Username... :lol:. Yeah, and one embedded into the Wii which'll work with all online games so you don't need to remember a LOTTA nĂºmeros for seperate games.

    That would kinda suck for me and my brother, since we play on a hotseat sort of. We'll play Strikers with each of our respective Mii's (and friend codes), switching off between matches.
    But we'd both have to share the same account, and records, if each Wii came embedded with just one unique 'gamertag'.

    You're right. Instead of a single username/gamertag account for each Wii, they could allow multiple accounts and tie them to a particular Mii. You would essentially "log in" by choosing your Mii somehow on the main Wii screen, and then when you play a game, it knows which user is logged in and what stats and friend lists go with that person.

    Than you have to think about the tiny memory available on the Wii to keep seperate accounts as well and the space on the discs to keep records.

    how much space could records take up? theyre just numbers.

    also, i say with brawl, friend codes will be abolished. and theres no way they wont make a hard drive for wii.

    Guess so, but some Developers like to be snazzy and do transitions, funky borders, animation in the background, some crazy font along with some Link Buttons and stuff like that. "This Bridge Takes Up 1MB Of Your Game."
