Wii U does support multiple profile sign-ins

Wii U is a great console. Good design, nice feel, and fun to play. It’s not without faults, though. While Nintendo Network is a vast improvement over Wii’s introverted little world, when compared to Xbox Live or PSN, it’s still lacking.

Despite all the restrictions and slow-loading, one of the greatest concerns was the inability to have two profiles playing one game at the same time. It’s a basic, core feature that has been used over the last eight years. So it's natural to expect the same thing to be possible on Wii U. (Nintendo, Wii U)

No kidding. The problem there is that Wii U's designed in such a way that multiple accounts don't mean very much. They share all of the games and content. The only real difference is that the username has been changed.

It's an improvement for sure, but it should have been a larger one given the poor reception of the previous OS.

I don't see the big deal with this?? Is it just cuz of trophies ....I don't see what is so important about, even if its on Xbox or ps3.

Get your own WiiU. I don't wanna share, even if my kids use it, its not like im gonna let them play my games.

Well the big deal is that anyone with an account can log in to your system and access things such as:

- Cloud storage.
- Digital Game library.
- Friend list, messaging, other social features.
- Trophies/achievements.
- Account settings.
- Store.
- Access US/EU/JPN region stores.

Without overwriting your profile and settings.
Pretty important especially if you share the system with someone (e.g your brother or sister).

WiiU online is way above LIVE and PSN get a grip everyone has voice chat on every game that supports it i play BO2 and i can stick any set of headphones in my GAMEPAD and i'm talking to friends and strangers without a stupid call centre headset ?? the online is smoother than LIVE and faster everyone knows the WiiU NintendoNetwork is way above LIVE going forward.

No just no. There is nothing superior with the Wii online U netpass or whatever it's called.
PopRocks359  +   1088d ago
I'd disagree there. The Miiverse integration works a lot better than, say, PS Home did. The web browser is the best of its kind and the actual game servers actually run pretty well. All the Wii U is lacking right now is proper in-game voice chat/party chat, and even that won't be as large an issue once some wireless headsets come out.

And it's called "Nintendo Network." It's really not that hard to remember.

HAHA! Nintendo fanboys are becoming very desperate.
KillerPwned  +   1089d ago
By you're statement you are becoming no better than the fanboys saying what you're saying. By all means the Nintendo Network is not up there with PSN and Live in terms of services. As far as servers go though Nintendo has some really good servers out there to hold their own. I rarely ever encounter lag and such in say a game of Black Ops 2 on Wii U for example.

This vast major upgrade is a new beginning for Nintendo just like PSN when it used to really suck bad. Give it time and I'm sure it will result to something great.

He is not lying, I do think the internet work faster, for example black ops 2 seems smoother online then my ps3, or you can use downloading games as an example the Wii U download games faster.....Netflix load faster....anything dealing with the online seem better......try nba 2k13 online and you will see a difference between the ps3 version....if you wonder why I did not say 360 to compare it because I do not have a 360, so i do not know the difference, but between the ps3 and Wii U, the internet just seem a bit faster, I do not know why, maybe its because of new tech or something, if it is because of new tech I'm guessing the ps4 will be much faster online too

Thank you i'm not a fanboy it's just a fact the wiiu has better online everything all for free :) END OF.

Every ps3 or 360 gamer on MiiVerse says the best decision they ever made was upgrading to WiiU.
Link079  +   1089d ago
Oh this clearly demostrates multiple accounts on BO2 WiiU,basically ur on individual accounts on the same console playing the same game,something Sony havn't confirmed yet is can you like on WiiU play on the same game,same console,playing online MP ? because you can with WiiU ive done it.

It's obviously not something Nintendo feels they have to brag about and i agree.
