    you probably will still be able to purchase DSiWare hosted on the eShop but not use the online services that some of the apps offer

    i hope they still leave dsiware on 3ds behind... come on, servers are not so that expensive D: it was a good idea if they could sell "online passes" only people with an online pass get online services, it is a good idea for maintain not so old game servers... but yeah, lets kill the service so everyone buys a 3ds..
    i will never buy a nokia again because they closed the ovi store... i only bought the consoles for poogeymon, but yeah, in 5 years or less i bet they will close 3ds online services...

    well when theres less revenue coming in than they pay to run the servers it is less, so they decide to close it. The DSi is what, 4 years old now. Pretty old in terms of a handheld console, the 3DS shops will be shut down too, but there will be new handhelds (or other consoles) by then, and they wont be used. But who knows? Maybe the eshop is what theyre going to use from now on, and it will continue to stay up

    The DSiWare Shop will still function, and you can still purchase games on it, however, the online functions of those games (If it has any) will not work (Example: Flipnote Hatena, if it were still up).
