It's Official - Wii's U.S. Nintendo Channel, Forecast Channel, News Channel & more taken offline.

"If you have read stories around here over the last few years, chances are you have probably seen my data report stories on Wii games. I would gather information from the Wii's Nintendo Channel, and then create images with the reported play-time on games that showed things like average times played and total hours played. You can even read a data report I did on the Everybody Votes Channel, HERE.

Well, as of now, the Nintendo Channel (seen above), Forecast Channel, News Channel, Everybody Votes Channel, and Check Mii Out Channel have been taken offline on the Wii, to never return again. Perhaps Nintendo will release a News and Weather app on the Wii U, but I doubt they will ever release a Nintendo Channel app that shows play-times of Wii U and Wii games, because that data could provide hints of sales numbers for games as well.", writes CoffeeWithGames. (Everybody Votes Channel, Wii, Wii U)

Nintendo Channel was the only one I ever used.

Now how will I check the news and forecast minus using my phone, tablet, computer, lap top, anything with wi-fi at this point, newspaper, tv or look out the window? Damnit Nintendo, you screwed with the hardcore gamers yet again.
