Nintendo says so long to Wi-Fi functionality on DS and Wii

Tuesday, 20th May 2014 21:13 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

As announced back in February, Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection for Wii and DS is no longer available, as it’s been discontinued. What this means is that online modes, matchmaking, and leaderboards are no longer available for the last-gen systems. You can look over the list of affected games through here. Thanks, Shack.

    @sebastien rivas Nintendo is doing this so they can convince people to stop playing 5-8 year old Wii and DS games online and move to Nintendo’s newer more advanced systems, the Wii U and 3DS. This is a way to boost sales.

    Also, Gamspy servers recently shut down, so that affected Nintendo as well (same for EA)

    westman98 is completely right!!! Nintendo knows they have the rep for being a “Kids” company so in order to bring in more hardcore gamers.. they are gonna try their best to removed online play of these kiddie games in hopes that people will upgrade to the wii U. This way they can save a little face with their kiddy installed base.
