    I've been wondering, can you sell a 3DS with digital games on it, and GIVE the buyer my NNID user and pass (Giving up my account entirely, and just moving on with life)

    I've always seen this question asked, but the OP would want their NNID still. I don't need my account for the future.

    dont see why not but if you have a wii U system. You will not be able to use that ID. You also may want to change pass if its similar to any other of your accounts.

    Seems okay. Make sure you remove any credit card information. To be extra careful, make sure your password is completely different from any other passwords you use, like "asfjhkjhasdiu" or something. Also, you should probably change the registered email address.

    That's true, having personal information on the account is dangerous. So you're saying that it's very possible to sell the 3DS with the digital games, where they can stay with the account forever and they wont lose the games? I'm not gonna touch this account ever again, not even on a WiiU.

    I assume it's okay as long as your personal information is removed. If you're still unsure, you can always contact Nintendo support, although maybe they'd advise against it lol.

    Just did some last minute researching and it seems a guy did the same thing you're trying to do. As long as the NNID is still on the 3DS, you can sell it with all your digital games. Should be okay bro!

    I'll use that as a "bargaining chip" when selling my system for a N3DS.

    It adds some value and, when I get Gateway, it won't matter much to have all that.
