    so if miiverse is getting shut down does that mean the online feature for that game is also getting shut down also?

    The fact these kind of threads have to happen is a joke, servers shouldn't be shut down, there should be orders against them closing so they keep them alive forever. In 10 years time we should be able to play any WiiU game as it is today (or 360 & ps3), and the fact we probably won't be able to is pathetic. Every gamer needs to fight to preserve the online features of all games so they can't be shut down so we have to buy whatever there is at the time. And people try and come back with "it makes no sense as a business to keep them open" f the business, there are old buildings that are protected but useless, video games online should be protected in the same way, and servers for games shouldn't be allowed to close ever.

    Man 2018 is looking pretty fucking grim right now.Not only will the switch have a official paywall and join the rest of the corporate salve consoles,but you will be paywalled on every website/game service provider thanks to pai.

    Atleast it won't be $50, it'll be $20. Better than nothing i guess. :yayswitch:

    Pawalls in general are still anti consumer which doesn't make the situation any better and shouldnt be supported since they can increase the price later on like what Sony did.

    Oh, yeah. Didn't think about that...

    I wonder if the paid service will be held at a software update? I don't feel like they can shove the paywall into your face just if you connect to their server.

    I never even thought of this. What sort of stuff should we do to back things up as an upcoming precaution? I'm guessing who buy a Wii U in the future won't have any way to get Homebrew and Haxchi set up without online.

    As a guy who bought his Wii U after that update, what sucks so much about it?

    You're right... There's already an exploit for 5.5.2.. so it's completely safe.
    I just hate it because it was an attempt to ruin our hard work on wiiu.

    I wonder how much it costs Nintendo every month to keep the servers running?

    Nintendo likes ending services as much as they like making them

    I'd be fine with something that required releasing of code that allowed for personal servers when a company no longer wishes to upkeep their server.

    I can see where you're coming from. I mean even after all these years, an original XBOX can be played online. Why not a 3DS? :glare:
