Mario Kart Wii online was awesome until the hackers started to grow in numbers.

Agreed. Hackers made it unplayable online. I am crossing all my fingers and toes that the WiiU version will not be plagued by the same hacker scourge as the wii version.

Would all of you stop trolling? Good lord you sound like of bunch of 10 year olds.

ON TOPIC: I am glad Nintendo is ending support for the Wii, it's time to move on, and push the WiiU harder. If poeple want to play Mario Kart online, it's time to upgrade to WiiU.

It stinks that so many last gen games online support are getting shut down this year. I'm going to really miss Resistance 2's co-op.
