Complete Shutdown of all Online Functionalities for Wii

When do you think will it happen? This year? Next Year?

I would hope I'm still able to play Mario Kart Wii online in 15 yrs. Why the hell not. Computers by then will be so advanced that having a server for a wii game will be equivalent to a childrens calculator.

Unless they allow for Wii games to use the Nintendo Network when played on Wii U, I doubt they will shut down the Wifi Connection anytime soon.

Is Mario Kart DS or Tetris DS still playable online? If so, that might give some clue. I'd guess that what's left (certain game servers, plus the shopping channel, plus ?) probably have a couple more years.

The topic title scared the crap out of me.

Wii Shop Channel will be going as long as the Wii U lasts seeing as how you can still access the shop on there.

Same here. They better leave online multiplayer up for a while considering how many people have a Wii in their home. And I still need to get around to buying more VC games.

They use the Wifi Connection, which will remain up for the foreseeable future.

Yeah, if they ever get rid of Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection--which they shouldn't, because when barely anyone uses it and it becomes "retro," it'll be peanuts to maintain and good for posterity to keep it--it won't be for a very long time. They know their core fans are pissed off at them. They won't just punch us in the face like that.

Also, shame on you for this grave and misleading topic title, TC.
