Nintendo Switch Game Downloads Can’t Be Shared Across Multiple Consoles

It looks like Nintendo Switch game downloads won’t be shareable across multiple consoles. Purchases made via the Nintendo eShop can only be accessed on a single system at a time, based on comments made by Shinya Takahashi – Nintendo’s General Manager of Entertainment Planning & Development. The dialogue between Takahashi and a consumer in regard to this matter is as follows:

Consumer: “If I want to take my system with me… if I were to buy a digital game, could I buy it once, or would I have to buy it multiple times so they can use those games?”

Takahashi: “Currently we don’t have a system like that in place for Nintendo Switch, but we haven’t made any final decisions about how we would approach that going forward in the future, so unfortunately I can’t provide any concrete answer for you right now.”
