Is that PSN clone thing still happening?

Heya, sorry for the title, I can't remember what Nintendo was calling it, but I was just wondering if Nintendo still had plans to do that online system like PSN where your 3DS digital games are tied to an account instead of a system so that you can easily have them on other 3DS systems and not worry about that limited transfer anymore?

Can't tell if trolling or just ignorant.

I'm going to be safe and guess the former.

O.o

The heck? Well sooooorrrrryyyyy for not being up to date on all things 3DS and not knowing the proper name of every thing 3DS. -_-

All I remember was at some point before Wii U's release something was said that when the Wii U was released that there was gonna be some mega update to the 3DS eshop that would allow for an account based system similar to PSN in that you would be able to purchase 3DS games and they would be tied to an account of some fashion so that you could use on other 3DSes and it was to replace the 3DS to 3DS transfer system.

But yeah, I'm totally trolling, not seeking information on something I haven't heard about since the idea was initially announced. Geez, ask one innocent question and you get marked troll for no reason. -_-

Ease up, people.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nintendo_Network

Not everything is fully implemented yet, such as (easily) transferring games to another system. Purchases are still tied to the actual system, so no, "PSN"-style accounts aren't set up yet. However, in the event of a broken/lost system, calling Nintendo to transfer your purchases over remotely is an option, so you're not completely out of luck (regarding the 3DS, I think you need to have your system's serial number on you, which is on the back of the system).

Thank you very much Kilroy84. ^_^

I didn't know what the current name of the system was (presuming that Nintendo was either changing the name or never gave it an official name) so I didn't know how to go about searching for information on it besides asking here and hoping someone would understand the system I was talking about. :)

Wait they can transfer your purchases remotely? My 3DS recently died on me, you're saying that if I have another 3DS on me I can call them up to let me transfer my stuff without turning on my broken 3DS? I ask this because last time I called they told me there is no way of doing this unless both 3DS's are on and working.

He's considered a troll because he said Nintendo was going to copy Sony with something. You know how the fanboys are. Everything Nintendo does is original and not an imitation of anyone's work blah blah blah, pinnacle of innovation, blah, blah, blah.
