A recently uncovered patent has revealed plans from Microsoft to possibly incorporate a form of user-driven cheats system into Xbox.
Nintendo recently introduced their "Super Guide" system in the latest Mario Bros. platformer, letting Luigi essentially show solo adventurers how it's done - from start to finish - if they're struggling that is.
According to Siliconera, Microsoft have been working on a fairly different system for over a year that would allow a player to look up a cheats database (presumably an online one) to find solutions and offer help from other users. So if you're lost in a dungeon somewhere and are seeking out a key, the system would in theory know where you are and offer a selection of tips.
With some practice and a lot of head scratching and profanity, you should be able to complete the challenge.
The patent mentions an ability to capture screenshots, record video clips and annotate these with a digital pencil or even audio commentary, tagging situations and objects to make life a lot easier.
What do you think of the idea - should Nintendo try and incorporate something similar alongside Super Guide? What do you think of Super Guide - is it an effective way of helping players?
