The Wii U’s online identity system hasn’t been fully detailed yet, but we now know that EA games at the very least will require a second layer of authentication.
EA currently also requires PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 players to log in with their Origin IDs to access multiplayer and online features for certain games, as with Dragon Age and Mass Effect, for example.
The policy update contains yet another allusion the Nintendo Network IDs, which are expected to replace the old Friend Code system, which Nintendo is retiring.
The Wii U launches in November in the west; get all the details through that link.
