Why is Nintendo shutting down Wii online services?
PapaRiver 19 weeks ago
I still play my Wii from time to time, and I was not pleased to learn that Nintendo was shutting down it’s online gaming, leaderboards, matchmaking, etc. It has been less than a year and a half since the Wii U was released and you can still buy a new Wii. I still have my original XBox and after it was replaced with the X360 you could still play Halo 2 online for 4-5 years after sales of the first gen Xbox ended. This seems like an absurdly short amount of time for Nintendo to support a game and console that is still on the market new. I played Mario Kart Wii online just a couple of days ago and the servers were still pretty active. Why kill off something that is obviously still in use? This does not motivate me to purchase a Wii U, if that is their intention, it motivates me to buy a PS4 or Xbox One.
