Before I get started, AC:NL was a great game.

Now the social media integration that was "built into the game" is totally non-existant. The way you upload photos taken in game is done 'clunkily' through the 3DS browser.

What I would like to see is direct social media integration built INTO the game itself, so you don't have to take a snap in game, then go to the home screen, launch your 3ds browser, goto the website, login, connect with facebook/twitter/tumblr, then upload your image.

It would be easy enough for them to integrate this functionality directly into the game so you don't have to exit each time you wanted to upload an image, hell you should be able to have someone in your town or be visiting someone elses town and still upload an image without having to go back to the 3ds homescreen and being disconnected.

This kind of functionality is one of the key areas Nintendo is failing in, while they have taken some small steps towards system level services it is a mostly shallow affair.

Even the recent WWHD game on Wii U has its problems, have you tried throwing one of the messages in a bottle into the ocean/map? It takes forever, these messages would literally be kilobytes in size there is no reason it should take over 5 seconds to load/save when doing so.

Thats the end of my rant.

So what he meant by "We're not aiming to see if the game will be a smash hit. Our real intention is that we want to see how people respond."

Is - Our real intention is to see how much money we can make off games we made years ago with minimal time and effort by simply releasing them on a new console.

No SEGA, we don't want your old games ported from old systems. We want new games created for new systems.
