Question from ebell94

Asked: 2 years ago

If you download a retail game in the eShop, will you be able to share this game with multiple users?

You'd be able to share if you bought the disk, so would the same principle apply? If it doesn't, then what's the point of downloading it online?

This question has 2 answers. Basically it's yes and no.

For example; If you have a Wii U console with your NNID and have other users on it, you can share everything you download with everyone on your Wii U console. So your brother, sister, etc.

And no. You cannot give you NNID and password to a friend and have them log into your account to download everything you purchased. It is tied to one console (for now) until Nintendo decides to release an update to let you log into a different console.

So simple answer, Yes and No. You can share your games+downloads with all the users the console you downloaded them on. But you cannot gameshare like you can with PS3 meaning you cannot go to your friend's house and log in to download games, etc.

No.
Your download is linked to your NNID, and your NNID is linked to your WiiU console itself.
So no gamesharing like on PS3.

Yes. Everything you download in the Nintendo eShop can be accessed by every user registered on the Wii U, including DLC, games, and updates...
