Gamnesia: "I want Nintendo to have a universal account system. I see the benefits every other platform has because of it, and it feels odd to not have this benefit on my Nintendo hardware. However, it feels like a light bulb went off in my head a few days ago that made me understand exactly why Nintendo hasn't done it, and why they may never do it. They are protecting us.
Now, in most cases many of us would feel like we can protect ourselves. I mean, can't we? Well, it recently came to light that there are 34,000+ hacking attempts on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One every single day. These hacking attempts are to steal usernames that contain credit card data, high ranking multiplayer profiles, and all that jazz. These sorts of hacking attempts wouldn't work on Nintendo's current platforms."
