In what could potentially be a very interesting move for Nintendo's new 3DS handheld, a new video has hinted at the possible inclusion of Achievements in the new system's software design.
Brilliant – that was my first reaction [when I saw the 3DS],” EA's senior director Ryan Stradling stated.
Think of all the gameplay possibilities we can have. Playing games is about applying with friends and I want to know when my friends are online. It's also going to let me know what games they are playing, what real time updates are available and exchanging achievements with other players.”
Of course, Stradling could be referring to the sharing of a wide assortment of content types and not Achievements in the Xbox 360 sense. Hopefully Nintendo will clarify the situation in the near future.
