Why Future? Why not now? What possible reason do they have for locking it to one?

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."

I'll be honest, I don't see why this is bugging people so much. I guess being afraid of a bricking, but Nintendo has had a reputation of long-lived hardware and working with customers to get their stuff back, at least on Wii. Either way, it seems like this is getting blown way out of proportion to me.
Today's gamer community is all about online interactivity and portability. Look at my xbox, say I want to play a game over at a friends house on my profile with my save. I can easily do that with features they supply for the console. I haven't touched the ps3, but I assume they have something that does the same. It is the thought of my profile being locked away at my console at home, it bugs me. With the competition doing things that allow for portability, it seems foolish to NOT allow it. Simple as that, it's an ease of access thing.

I was happy to hear that Nintendo was getting rid of friend codes for the Wii U. Then I heard about this. Nintendo's always been behind the curve regarding online play. The Wii was already outdated the day it was released. In an age where online play/connectivity is the norm, this is just ridiculous.

Yet another reason why I don't consider the Wii U an 8th generation console.

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

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.

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?

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