Nintendo Network ID tied to single console

Company confirms account can only be used on Wii U system where it was created; future support for other devices planned.


Nintendo Network accounts can only be used on the Wii U system where they were created. The company confirmed the news in a Wii U support page. This means players cannot access their accounts from a friend's console or transfer information to a new Wii U should the system break, at least for now.

"A Nintendo Network Account can only be used on the console where it was created," reads the statement. "In the future, you will be able to use your Nintendo Network Account with future Nintendo consoles and other devices, such as PC's."

The Wii U supports up to 12 specific Nintendo Network accounts per console. Each member can have their own unique identity on the console, tailoring items to their specific liking.

The Wii U launched yesterday in the United States. For more, check out GameSpot's coverage of the Nintendo World launch event and reviews of Nintendo Land and New Super Mario Bros. U.
