Nintendo patents phrase "Massively Single P

Sounds interesting, if vague. Game is in the works and it is for WiiU. Link to the story
http://massively.joystiq.com/2011/08...e-player-term/

Edge Magazine say.........

"[The term] covers a singleplayer game in which the player's actions in the game world affect the world of another player, without the two needing to interact. It notes: "Those who want to play games that are more dynamic, not based on AI and not pre-scripted like multiplayer games, however, don't want to 'deal' with people, [and] appreciate the privacy it provides." One example given was a player stumbling across a pile of materials, and building a house; when another player reaches the same spot in his world, he finds only the finished house."

I've noticed a few sites speculate such a thing would likely be employed in Animal Crossing, like here http://www.qj.net/wii-u/news/nintend...xperience.html

I personally would bet that it will be employed in an existing franchise. Personally my minds buzzing with the idea of a massivly single player Pikmin! Thoughts? Hopes?

I read somewhere about this rumor expanded upon in Animal Crossing 3DS. One example was something about where Player 1 tells a rumor to a townie, then the townie tells the rumor to Player 2.

Make it work and I won't care what they patent.

Either way, sounds interesting.

They could probably do something interesting with Pokemon for this.
