    Couldn't they think of a better name than that?

    Considering that this is the same company that gave us the New 3DS, I imagine not. They really need a better Western marketing department.

    We never heard the end of these comments when it comes to their names. I don't mind the name as long as the service is good.

    Don't care much about the name. Nintendo Club was hardly an inspiring name as well - more interested in how it actually works.

    Wonder if it'll backup save files with its cloud service? :V
    On top of this, there will be a new point system for playing or buying games that can be used on both digital goods and physical goods, but the big news is that you'll be able to earn points just by using and playing games. Perhaps this is an indication of some sort of achievement system on the way, but at this point it's unclear.
    That's interesting in itself.

    I'm just glad that they seem to be taking it seriously.

    I like the name; not much room for confusion.

    I don't really care one way or another for name. It's simple. It works.

    Interesting that they seem to infer that the mobile games will connect to real games (assuming I was reading that right). I guess that might actually give me a real incentive to play the mobile games if they do it right.

    Edit: So what's this then? Did they just get the name wrong, or did the other article get it wrong?

    Neither. As it says in the article:

    My Nintendo is part of a bigger initiative, called Nintendo Account, that will bridge the company's software across Nintendo devices, PCs, and smart devices.
    Nintendo Account is the larger initiative that will serve to replace everything that's currently under the Nintendo Network, and more. "My Nintendo" is, among other things, the rewards program within that initiative that will replace what was Club Nintendo.

    Oh, alright. I had forgotten about that part by the time I read the other article. Thanks.

    Upon reading the articles, I strongly expect Nintendo to penetrate deeper into the mobile market. Whether it's successful or not will change over time.

    One of the writers for the PotW, and apparently the keeper of sanity and order.

    I make no claim of being perfect or always right. Take everything I say with a grain of salt.

    Based on the "ニンテンドーアカウント " and the profile's Edit button directing you to their FAQ, I would say this isn't quite complete yet.

    That said, it seems like it was designed by human beings during this decade, which is a promising sign.

    I tried registering but I haven't gotten my verification code yet, even after clicking resend a few times. I contacted Nintendo about the matter. I'm really upset. Not a good month so far for me what with Satan (sic) Manning winning the Super Bowl.

    If your email is through yahoo then it takes a while. I first tried my yahoo but when it wasn't working like the same problems you're having I tried my gmail and got the verification code instantly.

    You'll be okay. As said, it takes a while. And because you hit resend a few times, you're going to get an equal number of code e-mails, only the last of which will be valid, so keep that in mind. It's not really something to be upset about.

    If you're having trouble registering and are here to make sure we all know how unhappy you are, please keep in mind that A. registration just started, as in literally today, and B. after registering there is absolutely nothing you can do right now save pre-register for Miitomo, so you're not missing anything. It's not like the dying throes of Club Nintendo, where not being able to get in meant you might miss out on the reward you wanted.

    Okay, registered to both this and Miitomo. Was surprised registration was so quick and easy on mobile.

    So what in the world is the reasoning for preregistering. It's not like there's a limited number of copies available or something like that. A little silly if you ask me.

    Even though I don't plan on using Miitomo, I did preregister, just because they're offering reward points.
