Shop Down for Maintenance?

#1Fick1122Posted 8/25/2011 2:58:49 PM
I finally got around to putting points on my E-Shop, got home from worked today excited to download some games, and apparently the shop is down for maintenance? Does anyone have any idea for how long by any chance? I swear Nintendo, you purposely try and piss me off.

It'll be up soon. I know this because my uncle works at Nintendo.

Because no other online service ever has ever had maintenance, especially not at predictable weekly intervals. No, it's an insult to you personally.

Yeah, well my uncle is Reggie, and he lives in a tree in my backyard.

And yes, I realize maintenance is common among any sort of online service, but honestly I haven't been on E-Shop for at least a month now, and when I finally wanted to actually purchase something it is down for maintenance. Ironic is all.

They probably should have had this maintenance on a day that isnt the day the store updates. That seems silly to me, Usually PSN is down at oddball hours and no one seems to notice.

Yeah, this.

I swear, I think there is a Sony mole planted in Nintendo somewhere. They make the stupidest decisions sometimes.

I mean, they update the games at noon and then take it down for service for the next 8 hours or so? They really don't want us to buy their games, do they? There are 6 other days in the week that they could take it down for maintenance, not to mention in the wee hours of the night when good little boys and girls are asleep (and bad boys and girls are busy doing other things...)

They announced this several days ago in the news section of the eshop that it would be down 6-8 hours.

Also, is it down just in America or worldwide? If it's worldwide, well, consider that it's currently early morning in Japan.

EU one is down too. So you're probably right: Nintendo shut it down at a convenient time in Japan, but not necessarily in other timezones.

Why does everyone say stuff like this..?

Obviously, he doesn't. And this goes for other posts like this as well, unless your uncle lives in Japan. //
