Ubisoft is Kissing Friend Codes Goodbye

Illustration for article titled Ubisoft is Kissing Friend Codes Goodbye

While Nintendo is yet to confirm it as a system-wide feature, at least one developer has been able to kiss friend codes on the new Wii U console goodbye.

That developer is Ubisoft, whose version of Ghost Recon Online will keep a player account linked to a player, and not a machine. It will also be able to do things you expect on a machine like the Xbox 360, like easily find and communicate with your friends (instead of an obtrusive string of numbers).

While this is a promising development, at least for fans of Ubisoft games, just because one developer is doing it doens't mean all Wii U developers are doing it, as Nintendo is keeping mum on friend codes (or lack threof) as a system-wide feature at this stage.

Friend Codes were specifically designed to keep pedophiles away from children but lets face it... in order for most of us to achieve getting friend codes, we have to use the computer and I would imagine that you are much more likely to accidentally find a pedophile over the computer instead of on a gaming console, so it really makes no sense to have stupid friend codes.
