We went through this yesterday. Icarus is not a nintendo name. I have been using this names since playing Battlefield tornys and hake never played kid icarus. But im glad you can see i have a valid point since your only response is my name.

I use my PS3 for everything. Its been very very successful for being my "media entertainment hub" Dvds, bluerays, BBCiPlayer, netflix it stores my favourite porns and ultimately plays games. I adore my PS3. I kinda expected Nintendo to do this but better since Nintendo was experts at making things simple and foolproof.
Unfortunately they didn't. I seriously thought the next step from the Wii was to make it "thee entertainment hub" rather than market it as a gaming machine which wont piss off parents because you can go in the next room and play it on your pad. WHAT?!
*yawwns* People still having a big **** over lack of DVD/BR playback?

Oh, fanatics, those people who blew up the twin towers, those people who burn other people alive or kill millions in concentration camps in efforts to commit genocide?
Yea, those are horrible.
Oh, wait, this is about people, who don't blow shortcomings of consoles out of proportion? Well, let's see:
Last gen graphics again
Of course simply saying "graphics>gameplay" as if weaker graphics would magically enhance gameplay is nonsense.
But the overall design of a console is always a compromise between price, power, and a variety of features that can be more or less be related to gameplay.
Historically, many consumers often chose the graphically weaker consoles because they were attracted by other features or the the lower price (PS1 vs N64, PS2 vs GC/Xbox, Wii vs PS360, Nintendo handhelds vs Sega/Sony handhelds).
Do i prefer better graphics over worse graphics? Sure! Am i concerned about what the Wii U's power means for multiplatform releases? Sure, particularly after the Wii.
But i also don't want a console that costs 400$ or more, and i don't want to sacrifice other features the Wii U offers like the GamePad, full BC, free online gaming and so on.
Digital content is tied to the console, not the account, therefor if you want to replace your Wii U instead of getting it repaired for whatever Nintendo's asking price is, you're SOOL.
From what i understand Nintendo is working on this, and honestly that you have to construct unlikely scenarios like "console breaks and rebuying is cheaper then repair" and "selling the console after buying a lot of download games and rebuying it later" should show you pretty clearly why many people don't care.
Again, i'm not saying that console-independent accounts wouldn't be better (and even Nintendo seems to agree if they are really working on it).
But for most people this is and will always be a purely theoretical problem. That these people don't care is far less "fanatic" then running around and aggressively demanding people to get worked up about something they don't care about.
By the way, most people i know who sold consoles simply sell the account with it and advertise the downloaded contend as added value.
