Does Nintendo even have the infrastructure for a digital worldwide release

#1Long_BottomPosted 6/16/2013 6:28:17 PM
The eshop is going to be down all of October 12th I'm guessing. Nintendo have a 2005 grasp of online so i doubt they've set up that many servers. Imagine the amount of people rushing to download this title once it hits midnight in their territories.

;0; I was hoping to get this as a digital title tbh but we'll see. Hopefully the rest of the UK thinks otherwise.

I tried to think of a sufficiently appropriate meme to answer your query, but I couldn't manage to combine the couple of concepts I had floating around in my head, so I'll give you a straight answer.

It'll be fine. This is not y2k.

I'd imagine so. They know how much other popular titles have sold digitally and when. With this information they could plan for temporary server increases accordingly.

The 3DS eShop has been pretty good to me recently. The last time I had problems was Link's Awakening.

I won't have to worry about this, as I'll be buying physical copies of both games.

Does anyone else remember when they did the Dream World thing for Japan and they had to close it for like, a month because of the overwhelming response?

And then when Not-Japan got the Dream World after ANOTHER delay because they learned from the Japanese thing but they ended up with extended downtime anyway?

Of course they do.

The fact people think Nintendo has an online infrastructure of 2005 is a massive misnomer. It's all because they use friend codes, which I feel is a better thing than usernames (some git stole Serebii on the Wii U Nintendo Network).

The Wii U and 3DS have proven they are fully capable of online, and a worldwide release will be fully possible else they wouldn't do it. The servers may be a bit slow at first, but they won't collapse or anything. Nintendo do this all the time now

Seeing as I'll need to get a 3DS first, I'll probably won't get X or Y the first day.
Probably wouldn't anyway, as I'll need to know the differences between the games before I can decide wich to get.
