To bring a game console to life, large manufacturers have to design hundreds of systems essential to their machine's operating system. Among these concepts, the social interface, an important component for which each company has its philosophy.
On the side of Nintendo, we opted for the use of a friend code difficult to remember, where others preferred the use of a more classic pseudonym. This choice, strongly criticized by some players, is now explained thanks to the Powerpoint file leak
As part of that Nintendo leak, an internal powerpoint was found that spells out the reasons they went for friend codes. Apparently they thought signing up for screen names would be too confusing for the audience, and they would be frustrated if they didn't get the ones they want. pic.twitter.com/LWzM0BRhIb
