I think people are forgetting that only Nintendo games themselves, and not games by third parties (unless published by Nintendo and hosted on their servers), are affected by this. That's disappointing, but there are many games that still will function fine.

That not point for the shutdown. They are shutting it down for Wii U and 3DS Nintendo Online games match making. Such as Mario Kart 8 and Smash Bros.

...thank you for reiterating exactly what I said in a confusing, borderline illiterate way. Your reply was useless and nonsensical.

This is a smart move, since a lot of people will be forced to upgrade.

It's smart, doesn't mean I agree with it. I'm still holding off on buying the Wii.U.

I did upgrade to the 2Ds though (well downgrade in some cases), I don't EVER use the 3D and frankly it's more comfortable than even the XL is...I was shocked how much I can play without cramps.

The sound quality is terrible through speakers though, I have to use headphones to enjoy the music at max:)

This is why people are terrified of digital, yes its only online play being affected but sooner or later they might choose to shut down the online as well...and since your games tie into your system (So stupid btw...having games locked to ur system), most users might not be as affected by it...either way...I buy all my games digital for Vita (yes I know...but the damn cartridges are soo small and frankly changing one on subway is too annoying) and physical copies for 3Ds (other than a minimal select few...which i got for free or as a bonus).
