One goal of UNITE, which is still a working title, is to help gamers discover friends and other like-minded gamers across all gaming platforms. Gaming networks can be difficult to navigate and finding friends on a platform you just switched to isn’t always easy. Steam and Xbox Live have been around for over 10 years and we’re still discovering friends via long lists of usernames on forums.
One of the project’s early milestones it to help you discover friends on Nintendo Network so you aren’t crossing the Mario Kart 8 finish line with strangers.
There are several reasons why Warp Pipe is working on UNITE and I look forward to sharing them as the service grows and evolves.
