    We really needed this reply, thanks!
    Anyway, I don't think they will make the games free.

    Nope, there's no chance they will just give the games out for free. Maybe put them on sale, but no way they will end up free.
    If you want free DSi games, get a hacked 3DS and install them through freeShop

    They will be lost forever once the DSi shop goes down.
    Nintendo doesn't care about preservation, they only care about the profits.
    I'm surprised the DSi shop actually held out this long (on the DSi that is)
    I've expected it to shut down 2/3 years ago already when the 3DS was selling like hotcakes.

    Wow, I had no idea they were closing down the DSi shop. Does this mean that it will no longer be possible to install sudokuhax even with TWLtool, since we can no longer install exploitable DSiware?

    Yes, and that might be a good thing. For now hackers didn't really explore the possibility of connecting the NAND to MMC readers (since it's eMMC memory anyways) and dumping keys that way since they had more convenient entry points - this might prompt them to actually hack the system.

    The WiiShop Channel is still functional and up running, only the Game Servers (Nintendo Wifi Connection) are Down.

    You have 2 options to get the DSiware you want before the server goes down.
    1. Buy a Nintendo points card
    2. Hack your DSi and pirate games if you're ok with that (which it seems a lot of people are these days).

    I don't think people can bring it back like they did with DLC and online gameplay with things like MkWii because most DSiWare costs real money.

    Fair enough, disregard me comment about it being down.
    TIL.

    WiiConnect24 is also down, but there are replacements for both WiiConnect24 and WFC.

    True, but I'm scared that the DSi will get ignored in favor of the 3DS and possibly the NX.

    The DSi Mode is the same on the 3DS, so it's not that big if a deal. My point is that eMMC-to-USB adapters could be easily fabricated - all you need is a reader, some flex cable and a tiny caddy to piggyback on the chip, but nobody seems to care despite the fact that those who tried it have seen success in reading the chip's contents.

    I wonder how long the eShop will stay up for. Or does the eShop work in a different way so it will stay up forever?
    I mean, if it goes down, how will we download our digital games we bought??
    Offtopic, but kinda curious

    It's a shame once it shuts down too since there are games that are exclusive on there and once it's down its gone forever. This is one of the few reasons I can side with piracy.
