The lights are on
It appears Nintendo's new console won't have a mandatory achievement-style system like Sony's PlayStation 3 and Microsoft's Xbox 360. Jeremiah Slaczka, co-founder of 5th Cell, said it's up to the developers to add achievements to their Wii U games. 5th Cell developed Scribblenauts Unlimited for the console's launch on Sunday, November 18.
"There are no Wii U accomplishments that are system wide," Slaczka said on NeoGAF. "They are up to the developers to include or not include. Scribblenauts Unlimited loosely has them in the form of 'Global Starite Shards' which is like a giant checklist of global things to spawn and do in the game that aren't area specific."
Slaczka did note, however, this could change in the future. "The Miiverse is in its infancy. Just think how much the PS3/360 dashboard and store changed to meet people's needs. I'm sure Nintendo will do plenty of updates and new integration of systems as time goes on."

Well ok than
Not really necessary feature, though i think ys a good reason to juice your games and compete with your friends
Disappointing. I actually enjoy going after the occasional achievement. Haven't been a hunter since the ol' 200k acount quit on me, but I still enjoy getting them.
Yeah I dont really play games for dem achievements anyways. As long as the game is great than it's worth playing over and over again.
This seems like a bad decision by Nintendo. One of many relating to this new console (the biggest of which is the name, which makes it seem like an add-on and not a new console).
