Wii U missing universal Xbox 360, PS3 features

Reported by Maryum Razzaq

Earlier this week, we told you how the Wii U will tailor to non-gamer consumers, with the surprise revelation that the Wii U GamePad acts as a universal TV and Cable box remote control. However, we now have some potentially disappointing news to bring you regarding the lack of a big feature that won’t be on Nintendo’s new console, a feature that the Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles have been utilizing for years.

If you ask any hardcore Xbox 360 and PS3 owner, they will agree that achievements and trophies are a key part of any new release now and essential to an overall longevity of a game. Sony and Microsoft both have a rule in place to make achievements and trophies universal across all games, but unfortunately we can confirm that this won’t be the case on the Wii U.

A developer who has been busy making a title for the Wii U has said that the system won’t have universal achievements or trophies as a requirement upon release. That’s according to 5th Cell designer Jeremiah Slaczka who has been working on Scribblenauts Unlimited for the Wii U, due out alongside the system as a Wii U launch title.

He added that it will be completely up to the developer if they want to put in achievements or not, meaning they won’t be under any pressure from Nintendo to do so if they chose not to. While this may not be deemed a major blow for most prospective Wii U buyers, there is certainly going to be an element of doubt cast in the minds of consumers who were hoping that Nintendo were really making strides in gaining back hardcore gamers.

Another worrying factor is that the information has come via a third-party developer, with Nintendo staying silent all this time, with just days to go until the big launch. Put it this way, if Black Ops 2 launches on the Wii U without trophies or achievements, how is that going to make you feel – a little robbed we’re guessing, after seeing the exact rewards on the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions. Don’t forget that the Wii U version isn’t going to have Call of Duty Elite at launch either, which is bad enough for some.

Has Nintendo made a big error in not bringing universal trophies and achievements to all future Wii U titles? Let us know what you think about this and whether it is a big deal or not for you.

Dheere Dheere Lyrics Har pal meriyaan yadaan
Yadaan vich ae tun
Dil di gal main dassa
Te dassa fir kinnu (x2)

Teri meri, meri teri ik jind'di
Ik jind'di what to do
Jhoomu main naachu main gaaun ke likhun
Tere liye main kya karun

Dheere dheere se meri zindagi mein aana
Dheere dheere se dil ko churana (churana..)
Tumse pyaar hume hai kitna jaane jaana
Tumse mil kar tumko hai batana

Sham wahi, kaam wahi
Tere bina o sanam
Neend nahi, chain nahi
Tere bina o sanam (x2)

Teri meri, meri teri ik jind'di
Ik jind'di what to do?
Jhoomu main nachu main gaaun ke likhun
Tere liye main kya karun
