In One Test, Used Wii Us Let You download Previous Owner’s Games

Posted by at 12:02 pm on January 4, 2013

Most of have have known, even before the release of the console, Nintendo Network IDs can only be associated with a single Wii U console, and now it appears that this restriction is providing unexpected benefits for used console buyers. Specifically, NeoGAF member DSN2K claims that second-hand console purchasers are able to redownload any games that were purchased via the previous owner. From a newly created account, DSN2K was able to download Nano Assault Neo and Trine 2 at no cost.

This makes sense, bu whhat makes less sense is that previous purchases seem to remain connected to the hardware even after the associated accounts are deleted. So, you might be in for a pleasant surprise if you pick up a used Wii U.
