Re: Thinking of getting a Wii U

Well yes they have. It only took 4 online consoles.

So you were right in the end

I just figured that, after releasing four consoles that you can buy digital games and/or play online games on, they would have had the whole "one online account" thing figured out.

Oh Nintendo.

Are we counting handhelds as consoles now? I don't recall the Gamecube and Nintendo 64 having online capability.

I was counting the DS(i) and 3DS as separate consoles. And why not? If you're making digital purchases, they should be tied to an account. Sony managed to figure it out.

I don't disagree about the need for a unified account, I was mainly quibbling about handhelds being called consoles.
