    More of a quick warning than news, I have just been to the nintendo.co.uk website (new game, wanted to add my code) and was presented with this:

    So you know, be careful of any "nintendo" emails asking for details.

    Edit: damn iOS autocorrect, can someone edit the title to phishing, not phasing, thanks [​IMG]

    Thanks for posting this, there is no warning on the German site. I had some 'problems' with the Nintendo website since yesterday.

    Even better, don't attack at all.

    I wonder who could be doing this; probably some imitator group trying to be the new LulzSec...

    I wonder if its related t o the stuff LulzSec released a week or two ago. Perhaps that alerted Nintendo to a potential weakness and they took it offline to attempt and fix it, rather than risk exposing customer details.
