So I want to sell my Wii that has been gathering dust for a long time. I thought those few Virtual Console games would add to its sell value and bring enjoyment of classics to some kid who doesn’t know what ‘Zelda II’ is.
Nope, rather than buyer & seller benefiting from this, I risk my personal or financial information that is tied to this device through the Shop account. If I delete this account, the games go too. If I do not delete the Shop account, the next user can see all my receipts in the shop account. These things are nobody’s business but mine and Nintendo’s.
Since I don’t want such information being made ‘public’ I deleted the shop account and formatted the memory. I will only buy games/movies/music on disk unless it’s a streaming service; since there I know I’m ‘renting’. No iTunes for me! I recommend everyone do the same whenever possible.
So who wants to buy my Wii?
