The Wii U and 3DS eShops as well as Miiverse both appear to have been hit with technical issues.
Don't tell me Nintendo is getting hit too...
Bah, it's just being overloaded. It happens to every network, every Christmas. Squads of reptiles are overstating their effects on it happening.
All the consoles being updated and connected to the internet from Christmas will do that to a network.
Ayup; I even saw some issues getting into CoD: Ghosts on Wii U, and the number of players for that version is usually tiny compared to the others. I'm sticking to solo gameplay until the holidays blow over; it's gonna be nuts for the next few days, at least.
Probably from so many people going online
People finally dusting off their wii u lol Still unable to log onto PSN :/
havent touched my ps4 since Smash came out LOL
Oh no teh haxors!! -_-
I am not experiencing anything.
This is properly due to high amount of traffic on nintendo servers, i experienced several issuses but that was earlier today now everything is running fine.
I doubt any hackers would have issues with Nintendo. They're pretty consumer friendly and apparently really hard to hack. Probably just server load issues, as others have said.
Their consoles are just as vulnerable if not more than the other two. What happened here is nothing more than an influx of new users coupled with their current base all trying to purchase things off the eShop and has little to do with them being consumer friendly. DDoS attacks can happen to anyone. ;)
Neither my comment or the article refer to a ddos attack, but it's nice that you agree with me about the server load issues. FYI ddos is not hacking. I do remember though when PSN got hacked a little while back, the hackers said that they tried to hack Nintendo but got detected and booted out straight away and Nintendo instantly closed the loophole so they couldn't get back in. They were impressed. So I would say that Nintendo is at least less vulnerable than Sony to being hacked.
