The Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service will end for Wii and DS on May 20, Nintendo has announced.
I'll miss the Mario Kart DS Online days :(
I really liked using the wii as a download station for DS demos. Problem was...the variety of Demos became few and far between. I can still use the wifi of the wii to do a direct download to my DS of the game geometry wars. That is a 1-1 shot and does not require internet to happen. So much like the original xbox, the games that offered online will be only half as valuable.
Metroid Prime: Hunters. So many memories.
When all online services are shot down for a mp focused game. How will anyone relive it? That is why I favour single player games a lot more.
I live in fear of that day.
Man I played alot of tony hawk on Ds along with the many Pokemon games. Good times :)
It's always sad to see services from the previous generation start to end. So many memories....
Anyone remember MGS3 online?
Never played it, but MGO in MGS4 was great.
I didn't even know it existed until a month ago. Didn't have the right version of the game I guess

I cant beleive pokemon is going down too
I know right ? Pokemon Black and White 2 aren't even 2 years old...
and Mario kart wii. Lots of people still play that
so monster hunter and the last story will still work?
well mario kart has hackers, and smash brothers and the extreme lag
Man, Jump Ultimate Stars was crazy good online. It was as close to handheld Smash Brothers that we've gotten thus far.
Lol used to play that for hours Used to go into forums just to find new good people to play with
Freaking loved the Phantom Hourglass online play (at least when people didn't rage quit).
What does this mean for the PokeBank app? I downloaded it but haven't used it yet.
That won't be affected. That's a 3ds app, it reads the cart then connects it to a server for 3ds. You can't use the pokemon app on the Ds.
God damn you Nintendo...
Gonna miss playing with someone online in Wii Music. /sarcasm
should of kept the wii a little longer though this should in a way make ppl jump to wii U
