Really Quick Question: Does this mean your purchases are now tied to your Nintendo Network ID account now instead of your physical 3DS? I really want to purchase Pokémon Y but I am scared to buy digital games on the service due to this issue.

If I were a mail carrier or a UPS guy, I'd be really fucking nervous right now.
Or really excited that your backpack or route just got that much easier. There's a ton of issues with employing drones domestically that will cause this idea to dry up in a heartbeat or get delayed into oblivion. The initial investment required will mean only select products and services will qualify for the service meaning businesses (the bread and butter of delivery) will opt out for a long time.
The scariest thing about all of this is learning how many people already tail USPS and UPS trucks to take packages off people's front porches that go unreported.
So you're telling me that a poorly advertised, half-step of a system didn't work out well for Nintendo. I guess it's time I retire this GIF from my hard drive.
Seriously, with an install base globally of ~3.5 million (as of November 2013) there is almost no way the Wii U is going to gain enough steam to get that much past the GameCube's final numbers. (~14-15 million units).
And Justin McElroy while they're at it...
Given that Polygon lured most of its (big name) editorial staff away from other big sites by presumably offering them enormous salaries, I'm assuming that right now, Polygon staffers probably make more than just about any other video game journalists. Sure, there's an element of them "believing in the new era that Polygon will usher in by having overdesigned web pages" or whatever bullshit, but I assume someone like Justin McElroy appreciates the pay raise, given that he's been married for a few years and might have kids at some point, and he is able to live in his hometown of Huntington, West Virginia and work from home.
He's a funny dude, but CBSi/Giant Bomb would have to approach him to offer him the job, and as much as he'd enjoy the chuckles, I think the fact that he accepted a position at Polygon says a lot about what he wants/needs his job to be. Also, the dream scenario where he moves out to San Francisco is unlikely because I'm pretty sure he'd prefer to keep living where he is living.
Dude... those eCigarettes aren't cheap. McElroy is the West Virginia gaming press!
EDIT: Also, Star Wars: Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader was a hell of a launch title.
I don't have a problem with the hardware review, but a console isn't defined by it's hardware alone.
So if you would do a review of the hardware and grade it, I get that. But reviewing a console as a platform, I think it's a little early for that.
In the end, each outlet does what it does, and if one doesn't like the way they handle things, than don't go there anymore.
It's never too early for a bit of that magical ad money.
