Your games are tied to the console. If your Wii U bricks because of a system update, everything you bought is lost. Does having this ID system accomplish anything other than making Nintendo feel like they've caught up to the competition in online infrastructure?

The point is to eventually have an actual account system that can accessed from your computer, phone, 3ds, or future Nintendo system.

Pretty much it'll be your ID, even though things are tied to the console such a thing can be corrected in a later update. Even more so when the 3DS can get a one.

An account system would correct the flaw of having games linked to your console, and instead have them linked to your account so you're not reliant on Nintendo if your console breaks, or you want to access your games from someone else's Wii U.

It would also tie together Nintendo systems in the same way that PSN does for Sony's consoles and handhelds.
