    Getting three 3ds for the kids. What's going to be the quickest way to set up theee accounts and can I have a central parent account. I'm well seasoned on doing this with PlayStation. How will this compare?

    Lucky kids! Sounds like you're getting them a great gift each.

    I have no idea how to set up parent accounts. I've never heard of it before, to be honest. I don't know if this will help, but I found a thread over on GameFAQs (thanks Google) that could be useful? ... s/70427214

    Here's one answer,

    "The 3DS can only have 1 account --- 1 primary user while the Wii U can have multiple.

    If you already have an NNID setup for yourself / your other kids, you could still use it on the 3DS --- just keeping the parental settings in place for when she uses it it.

    Alternatively, you could make (or use another existing) NNID for her on the 3DS and have that as 1 of the 12 possible users on the Wii U (with its own set of parental settings applied)."

    Hope this helps, Bret. The link may have additional information.
