There was honestly no reason to shut down the wifi so early.


It was Gamespy that pulled the plug.
Not Gamefreak/Nintendo.


Nintendo could simply relocate the servers.


They could but, that would hurt their Sales of the newer games! People would keep buying the older ones used! B/c it's cheaper than the new!

When you buy a game used I believe Nintendo doesn't see any profit from it!

Ultimately it's all about the mighty Dollar!

To sum it up! "Allow Gamespy to shut down their servers!" Use them as the scapegoat! People would have to buy new games so they can play with their friends! Nintendo makes more money!

Now it will be something to watch for when we get to Generation 7! Will Nintendo (They control the wifi servers for Gen 6) shutdown the wifi for the Gen 6 games to force you to buy the new games?


If they do and give the third versions a lifetime span of less than 2 years, they become selfish and greedy.

They didn't have to keep the wifi servers up forever, just keep them up until December.

Due to the wifi shutdown before SSB4's release and two things being clearly rushed (Pokémon Bank and Mario Kart 8) my current rating of Nintendo is a 3/10.

This applies to Sony and Microsoft as well. If it's all about the money, you'll fail.

You know, if promoting the Wii U and 3DS is really that important they could just merge the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection with Nintendo Network. All Wii and DS games can still be played online on Wii U and 3DS.
