    And the death of the 3DS begins in earnest.

    Huh... Feels like the 3DS only had it for a short while. Reminds me of the DS online going down so soon after Pokemon B2/W2 came out (rip sweet Dream World...)
    I don't have a Switch so I don't know; what's the replacement? Or is there none yet?

    Does this affect online games or just the social network?

    Super Mario Maker will be affected, but supposedly there will a workaround for sharing custom stages once Miiverse goes down. I'll believe it when I see it. Ugh this is why I don't support digital distribution for gaming as currently practiced; too many treasures disappear forever when servers are pulled to make way for the future.

    Here is a link to all the affected titles in North America: http://en-americas-support.nintendo...2ZlNUcDhqMiU3RW95UDZIVm5qQW5aWFdaWkVRJTIxJTIx

    Is a matter of time when the online functionality will be shut down, another reason to hate Nintendo.

    "So you bought our failed console, or our ds with 3d effect, we are glad to announce we are shutting down one part of our online functionality, even though the other companies are supporting the last gen consoles, come and buy our new shiny toy that will be replaced after 5 years in the market.
    Sincerely
    Nintendo"

    Nintendo deserves all the hate, but this will actually continue to be a problem forever it seems for every console maker and game developer. Try this template on for size:

    "Our company ___ regrets to inform you that ___ will no longer be available for purchase after ___. After ___, the servers will close so please make sure to download your games and DLC by ___. -Signed ___."

    You can fill in the blanks with your favorite/most hated gaming company. Enjoy!

    So... In order to prevent everyone's Miiverse account getting deleted... They're shutting the whole thing down... Which is essentially the same thing?...
    Do you actually believe this?

    Good God, for an Aussie your English is atrocious. And I already knew about that entrypoint. I doubt that is the reason for Nintendo shutting down Miiverse.

    I did not mean to offend, but it was hard to understand what you were saying.

    Then I just hope Nintendo pushes a fw update to get rid of the miiverse icon, I just hate it when you have things that don't work anymore showing up on your device, kinda like the ps store icon on the psp.
