Wii U Achievements May Be Called Accomplishments

Posted on Friday, August 24 @ 14:47:21 Eastern by


The Xbox 360 has got Achievements and Gamerscore. The PS3 has Trophies and a Trophy Level. And if a new rumor is to be believed, the Wii U will call its virtual gamer cred "Accomplishments". 

Nintendo has confirmed previously that the Wii U will have some sort of achievements system, but still have yet to reveal a name or provide any insight on how it will be presented on their upcoming system. However, a Project Cars "Career Design Document" from May 2012 directly calls the Wii U's e-cred "Accomplishments"—right next to where the PlayStation 3's trophy count and Xbox 360's gamerscore are listed.

If the document is indeed from May 2012, plenty of time has passed and Nintendo may have gone with a different name. Or this could just be a placeholder added from the very beginning. But seeing that Achievements and Trophies are taken, Nintendo will need to set itself apart by naming it something else.

Tell GR: Will Nintendo call Wii U achievements Accomplishments? What to you think of that for the name?
