I love Nintendo! I swear Sony and Nintendo are the ONLY ones who get what it means to gamers to OWN the games they buy. Love the Wii U Nintendo keep up the good work. I know your trying!

This doesn't mean squat if your eShop games are at jeopardy for example if your system breaks down or if it gets stolen. Nintendo should have had a solution for this before the development of the Wii U. ;)

They let you re download the games. Or they can do it for you just like the transfer from the old wii to the wiiu.

Happen to my wii u when i first got it. I bought a bad one but already downloaded a few games. I called them after i returned it and got them back on my new wii u.

What a surpise, LOL_WUT is being negative in a Nintendo article. I'm shocked.

And he's ended it with his usual pedo wink.

They're not in jeopardy, it's just a convoluted system to untie the NNID from the console at the moment but Nintendo can and do do it. They say this will change in the future so that end users can manage it themselves but yeah... The current system isn't ideal.

P.S. ;)
