If anybody doesn't have internet in this day and age, they're SOL.

Oh... Not necessarily. Just a hindrance, but you could always take it to a friends house.

Further reason to keep your Wii I guess, but yeah, that sucks for some people who have limited access to online.

If you live in a 3rd world country, you probably aren't wasting your money on video games.

If you don't have internet you can't afford a Wii U.

Not all areas in the US have access to decent internet. My house only has access to dialup. I had to opt for satellite internet which is only marginally better than dialup (I think I barely get 100kb/s on average) and not even close to reliable for about 2-3x the cost of standard broadband.

I just hope the download isn't that big.
