So who would you trust then?

 

Microsoft already got their supporters riled with the whole "Always Online" thing (which could actually lead to the whole "no used games" thing, since Microsoft has made no such statement on the matter)

 

Nintendo region locks all their consoles/handhelds and has no account system so that all downloads are tied to the CONSOLE (meaning if it breaks, you can't just buy a new one, you have to send it to them)

Your Nintendo account is tied to the console.

 

If it breaks, guess what? If you buy another Wii U to replace it, and try to log in with your Nintendo network account, it will say that this account is already used on a Wii U system (your broken one), and won't let you use it.

 

I already know plenty of people who've had their Wii U be faulty, returned it to the store, only to find out their ID was already "in use" and so they couldn't do anything with their old account.

and the ps3 does the same thing if that ps3 breaks and you go out and get a new one and try to sigh in to your account it will tell you this psn account is activated on another ps3 please deactivate that psn account from the other ps3 so you think the ps3 is better with this account thing?=/

The PS3 has a 2 console limit, so you can still log in.


Moreover, you can remotely deactivate the console yourself using the online website for it.

 

Nintendo has a strict 1 console limit, and the only way to "deactivate" is to send it back to them.
