I'd be pretty pissed off if I had bought Splatoon 1 within the year it gets shut down....
nah, the only games that cost them something aditional and they could take offline down would be splatoon and mario maker (maybe Smash Bros too).
All the other games are mainly P2P so they can easily keep them going for some time.
Then get ready. http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2017/08/nintendo_is_ending_splatnet_for_splatoon_next_month
Wii U online going down will like be Wii U owner's early Christmas present from Nintendo.
Splatoon doesn't use regular servers. Wii U's online mode isn't going away in 2017.
If Splatoon doesn't use regular servers that would be even more of a reason for Nintendo to take them down soon. But i am not sure if you can back up that claim.
Devil's Third was taken down within an year, Lost Ravers is handled by Namco, so it is another big candidate for being taken down. In the end, if Nintendo leaves anything at all online, it might be only match making servers for peer to peer games.
But even that is at high risk of being taken down after they decided to kill something as small as Splatnet, which could have been easily adapted so Splatoon players don't lose the feature.
you're talking about games that use special features.
Splatoon's servers require separate maintenace. It wouldn't be so easy to maintain especially when all the playrers are moving on to the Switch version.
Most games's online multiplayer is P2P and Nintendo's server only provides matchmaking and that consumes minimal resources.
Even when those are taken down someone can setup private alternatives, like wimmfi and altwfc.
Is miiverse shutting down the same as all online capabilities shutting down?
Absolute fucking bullshit. Your brain works in some mysterious ways. Know why its bullshit? The shutdown notice was found in update files in july. BEFORE this whole rpgmaker hack thing came out. https://www.polygon.com/2017/7/18/15992018/wii-u-update-miiverse-shutdown-rumors
I'll never understand why nintendo do this? I know sony and microsoft aren't their competitors but they should learn a thing of two from them, why can't they just setup their own servers? why do they have to out source their freaking online services with each passing generation? Then shut them down so suddenly? its ridiculous, money absolutely isn't a issue for a company like nintendo its incompetence at its best.
All these games will lose features. Online on the Wii U is likely the next, Nintendo wants to erase this console.
Add laziness? Lack of consumer respect? Splatnet is a prime example of a small feature that Nintendo could just have adapted/moved to some other service's server. There was no need to completely get rid of it.
they have to drop splatnet becuase they want to sell splatoon 2.
If we were to use Microsoft's terms, it's clear that the Wii U is now officially on "extended support" phase. It won't receive any enhancements.
I'm sure they'll keep the generic online services up for a while but all non-essential 1st party services will be shut down ASAP.
They'll keep the eshop though.pfft
Never gave a crap about it, but Miiverse shutting down means that 3DS support won't be around for much longer. Which is understandable, considering how old the 3DS family of systems is now.
Nah, miiverse was mainly a Wii U thing. 3DS users used it mostly for chatting whenever a new game was released. Very few 3DS games have miiverse-related features.
yeah that's true i tend to forget sometimes sorry about what i said

By that logic, they should remove the ability to play sounds as thats exploitable as well!
While we're on the subject, let's remove the ability to play games.
Iwata can't roll over in his grave; he was cremated.
They should remove the bootrom while there at it, thats exploitable.
i heard anything can be hacked, so should all computers be removed? lol
I got some information regarding Miiverse that might please some here, A Kaeru dev is working on a Miiverse reboot. It's still in RE state, though.
