Wii U supports achievements, online match scheduling via controller

Online tracking and friends lists also supported

The Nintendo Wii U will support a wealth of online features, including match scheduling via its touch screen controller.

Ghost Recon Online developers gifted ONM the first tiny details on the new console's online offerings, including news that the console will constantly track your online progression with its shooter.


Players have a personal account with a secure and flexible friend list, which will track the performance of other players and their achievements.

You'll even be able to schedule matches with friends while you're watching something on the TV, Ubisoft said.

Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime has already said that Wii U has Xbox Live and PSN level online capabilities.
