This is mostly just to see when others think the official online services end. I know there isn't a date on its demise, I just want to see what other people think!

the 3ds online is cool, but most people used it to trade Pokémon, and unfortunately, hackers have ruined that....
but I think that the online will last until at least 2025. lol, the ps3 is still online, 16 years after its release, so you shouldn't worry.

@Plazorn. I think that's not a good argument to compare the 3DS to the PS3 because each company has different console lifetimes. The 3DS, though caught between the 7th and 8th generations, does not follow a general console lifetime like most consoles would. If anything, we could compare it to the lifetime of DS's online (Nintendo WiFi), which almost lasted for 10 years. If we are going by that, the end of online is due. Sorry for slamming on your answer, I just wanted to start friendly conversation. Have a nice day!

For a pretty long time I'm guessing. Certain regions can already use the US eshop since their countries had limited eshops that are being shut down. Not to mention the only reason why Wii servers shut down was because of the GameSpy situation

    also gonna install twilight menu in my r4 flashcard
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    One thing that just occurred to me.... The sound on the 2600 sucked less back then the harsh sound we hear now is from infinitely better speakers we have now, back when the 2600 was new speakers produced a almost muffled sound, like CRTs made old graphics look slightly better.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I wonder if I could recommend that to some emulation devs that perhaps the sound could use some smoothing out to simulate those old TVs
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I think a few of the early systems could benefit from that, at least up to the 8 bit generation, by the 16 bit generation I think TVs had gotten a lot better in almost every way
