Friend Codes officially a thing of the past on Wii U photo



Nintendo revealed today that multiple user IDs could be stored on the Wii U, allowing a household of gamers to have their own personal data on a single console. A bold step forward, but there's been some confusion as to what these IDs mean -- will they signal the end of friend codes?

There you have it, a definitive answer on the friend code situation. Ridiculous and unwarranted strings of numbers .... YOOOOOU'RE OUTTA HERE!
