No, you cannot log into your account from another console

that the Wii U can't even do,

Where did you find this? The Wii-U doesn't do it, but it can.

iirc the microsoft online service was buggy as hell when it started, and the PS3 only recently allows you to store saves on a cloud service.
We aren't talking about save files though. We're talking about being able to log in to your account from another console, something Sony has always allowed, again, unless I'm mistaken. I've only ever done it a few times and it was long after launch, so maybe I'm wrong.

I don't really know anything about the 360's online service. I've only had Live a few months here and there, whenever I've picked them up for free from a game or something. So I can't really comment on what it was like at launch, tbh.

Well, the Xbox 360 and PS3 have been doing something for years that the Wii U can't even do, and they had this feature at launch unless I'm mistaken. At least they've got that going for them.

the thing bud, that nintendo unlike sony and microsoft try to relase working content, not half assed content then it comes the patch.

Also, it's hilarious to even call it a "feature". It should be expected.

I'm not outraged, but this is pretty lame. I already only had two minor reasons for wanting a Wii U (Bayonetta 2 and Scribblenauts Unlimited). This really doesn't help their case with me.

Boy this does seem a little strange. Why couldn't they just allow you a password or something that can allow you log in with any system.

It's not going to be an issue for me though so I'm not to concerned personally.

The smartest solution Nintendo would have used would have been to force people to create a Club Nintendo account, like Google does with GMail on Android, and use that for their Nintendo Network ID. Club Nintendo is already in place and can be accessed on any internet enabled device. So to implement that onto Wii U and their online network by adding the robust features of friend lists and the likes would have been a very smart thing. That's my opinion at least.
I agree they should have done something with Club Nintendo being the base for things like this. Thing is though, when the 3DS was launched it didn't plan to have anything to do with Club Nintendo, accept with the eShop. That's where the original concept came in for Nintendo network. However alot of people would see Club Nintendo as, well how it is, and not some sort of networking system.

I understand completely, when comparing the three companies, which is why I said companies(in general) and used our smartphones as an example. I agree completely that Sony and Microsoft halfass their content far too often, but Nintendo has to realize that time is of the essence with such a profound feature. Years ago I wouldn't have though this was a big deal, but I now know plenty of people who use their PSN IDs or Gamertags on multiple consoles.

f I want two Wii U's then I should be able to move content seamlessly in our day-and-age, which is the time where content on our phones can be readily available on our PCs or vice versa.
Why would you ever want two of the same consoles? I can see handhelds,3DS had 3DS to 3DS transfer, but not consoles. I already stated what happens if your Wii-U breaks, but having two Wii-Us in the same household would just be stupid.
I agree you should be able to, but you don't ever need it. It's like when people were complaining about Netflix and other video streaming software was not there Day 1. You have it on everything already, so why do you need it on your Wii-U on launch? Same basic concept of complaining about things that can be easily changed down the line. It's not like big Ninty WON'T change anything, as you can see the steps they've taken from the Wii. They're learning about what mistakes they made and correcting them. Other things like this original topic of this article is something they can easily change down the line.

The key word is "future" consoles and devices. That can mean many different things, such as Nintendo's console AFTER Wii U, whether it be handheld or the next full-fledged console.
And I understand being perfectionists and such, as many companies try to be even if they fail to do so, but releasing a console behind in something like this is just pathetically stupid. If I want two Wii U's then I should be able to move content seamlessly in our day-and-age, which is the time where content on our phones can be readily available on our PCs or vice versa.

If you look in the quote it says right there,
"In the future, you will be able to use your Nintendo Network Account with future Nintendo consoles and other devices, such as PC's."
