Great job, Nintendo. You've just sold me on buying the next gen Sony console.
Not like I was planning to do that already or anything.

This doesn't necessarily mean that accounts can't be moved from one console to another in those cases. But I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Nice job there guys, there goes one of the biggest reasons to upgrade to Wii U. At least account recovery should be easier, all you should have to do is give them your password and email.

Why couldn't they have done it like Sony did and let you use your account on only so many consoles?

As far as I know...Wii U is going downhill, in addition to the problems of lack of great launch games...

And Nintendo continues their trend of bad decisions.

So my current gen console can do something that this next gen console can't..... Huh, that seems like a bit of a step backwards doesn't it?

I would like to suggest a rephrasing of the title, there is nothing on the quote that the ID's cant be moved, or will be allowed to be moved in the future, saying that they are locked to one console is missleading, something like You cant log onto your nintendo ID from a different console which is different than what the title implies.

il brake it down buy it and sounds like zero sell back value for people who want to make the account but if your ban for some reason you cant get back online and thats why they did it.i think its crazy butwhy not hope sony dose not fallow by example
