I agree that the game purchases on eShop being tied to the system is absolutely absurd. What's the point of linking an eShop account if it doesn't insure that you will be able to re-download the titles you already purchased on another system? We will have to re-buy all the games again on the inevitable 3DS redesign if we so choose to buy it? And then the 20 games the ambassadors get will be permanently available to only that system? I have a sour taste in my mouth.

That's what I suspected...

It's pretty sad, really. I'm actually regretting buying a 3DS because of how bad this policy is. I seriously doubt I will ever buy another Nintendo console until they change things.

I was actually planning on getting a Wii to play Sonic Colors... I guess I won't now.

I assume it's because Nintendo is greedy.

It has more to do with Nintendo not understanding how online works

Or that they're not trying to understand how online works.

No, they understand perfectly. It's about the money.
