It's pretty much a given that Nintendo will create some kind of user ID system on the Wii U console, and we've had further evidence from UK retailer GAME.

The company's mobile application for iOS now has a field requesting a "Nintendo ID" - and it's nestled right next to the "PSN" and "XBOX Live Tag" ID fields.

Nintendo has so far kept its cards very close to its chest regarding online plans for the Wii U, but it's safe to assume that some retailers will have been briefed on what is in store - so this is a fairly solid indication that the Nintendo ID is becoming a reality.
