Is the eshop still linked to the consoles and not an account?

The reason I stopped buying nintendo and stayed with sony was when I bought a few eshop games, the console fell and broke and bam!!!, Lost games too... simply perfect,,, perfect dumbness.

Annnyway, Switch looks VERY interesting since I'm trying to focus my future of gaming into handhelds, life too rushed to sit on a couch to play a console but Switch makes it possible for me to play anywhere, it's a gamer's dream come true, however,,, that sucky eshop,,, unless I carry around my games >_> but i'm trying to evolve, go digital and blablabla.

Anyway back to topic, does the eshop make sense now or it still doesnt?

No, there's no virtual console and any games you bought on other systems aren't gonna be playable on your Switch.

Wait, you can download PS3 games on your PS4 without buying them again? For real?
Switch eShop is separate from the WiiU eShop. But the games ARE linked to accounts, you just can't take WiiU games (including digital eShop ones) onto your Switch.

Your eShop is linked to an account NOT the console itself. So if you lose or break it you can redownload your games. You'll have to start from scratch though.

I think you need to rephrase we're talking about a hybrid system and I know nothing about wii u but 3ds was in fact system locked which is why I didn't do nintendo digital, it's not a problem on switch though they gave us a new problem >< saves

TC saves are system locked only why to keep saves is to do a system transfer, I hope nintendo changes that and allows saves to be moved to sd card and for that sd card to be usable by whatever system is the 'active' switch for the account if they did it would make future upgrades/replacements much easier to handle

I have different accounts for 3DS and Switch. This seems dumb and unnecessary, but I haven’t bought much on either platform recently and may not buy anything on 3DS again. Exception: Picross.
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate.
