If you haven't heard the news yet, Nintendo announced that they will be shutting down the Nintendo Wi-Fi services on May 20th. What does this mean? It means you cannot play online on any DS, Wii or DSiWare game. 3DS and Wii U will not be affected as it uses Nintendo Network, but it still doesn't mean that you can play DS or Wii games online on the 3DS and Wii U. Nintendo said that other apps like Wii Shop Channel/DSi Shop Channel, YouTube and the other apps will not be affected by this change.
I think they should program Nintendo Network into the Wii and DS games, instead of shutting down online services for good, because there are a lot of people who play online whether it is Smash Bros Brawl, Pokemon, Mario Kart Wii and even Animal Crossing.
But what are your opinions on the matter? Feel free to write down your opinions below.
