Operation Friidom: Give us control over our Nintendo Network accounts, Nintendo

Having our accounts locked to a single system is a completely broken and outdated way of controlling games that your customers have legally purchased. Xbox Live, Playstation Network, Steam, Origin, iOS, and even Android don't even have these restrictions, so I do not see why we cannot login to and access our accounts from another Wii U console, and even our 3DS.

The attached signatures are of various Nintendo Wii U and 3DS owners that wish to have control over are accounts, whether it be being able to login to our accounts on different Wii U consoles, accessing our downloaded games and friends list, and adding Nintendo Network support to the 3DS as well.

      I would feel much safer if I was able to redownload my eshop titles to a new system if it gets stolen or the SD card gets lost. If I were to lose it with a physical cartridge, I would only lose one game. This could make a lot more people confident about digital purchases as well. Right now, buying digitally is not financially smart (same price as retail, no resale value, no game case, no sale chance, no security, etc). Also it would be nice to have cloud storage of save files as well. That or be able to create backups.

      Every other company uses an account system or gives incentives for downloading digitally. Nintendo, please use modern policies! It would cost very little to implement these changes, and profits for downloaded titles would undoubtedly increase.

      This should be a common sense feature to have. Locking to a single system is dumb.
