    wow, last night I wanted to play a few games of COD ghosts but I could not fetch my online player profile.
    today same thing.

    I found this statement on the nintendo site:

    Due to a high amount of online traffic, network services may be intermittently unavailable. We apologize for the inconvenience, and thank you for your patience.

    Start Date and Time of Outage:

    Did Nintendo sell that many WiiU's this holiday ? :D
    Are the 3DS' the blame for this?
    Or is something else going on here...
    Cause to me , the whole network is offline ... not overloaded!
    Is there anybody ATM who can connect ?

    I can confirm that I can'tm acces the eShop and Miiverse from the 3DS, it seems that the servers are obviously overloaded (Christmass gifts pls) but, I can enter online services such trding in Pokémon X and online races in Mario Kart 7.

    The error code I got for trying to enter the eShop is 005-4040, it was the same error code when the eShop first launched and everyone couldn't enter.

    Got a Zelda Wii set for Christmas this morning. Been trying all day but can't access eShop to get my fucking WWHD game.

    I hate digital downloads. Put a disc in the box next time you silly bastards.

    Too bad Wii U have no means to cache game data into HDD for retail disc, something PS3/X360/PS4 and X1 have.

    if a pokemon save is forked from a faulty key Y wouldn't make gateway online users (in case pokemon gets online support) easier to detect ?

    High amount of traffic? Whose?

    If a little under 4 million Wii U's and around 35 million 3DS's (which have barely any impact due to a small number of Nintendo Network games) is "too much traffic", I dread to think what would happen if the Wii U actually sold well.

    Nintendo found out that in "online multiplayer" people interact with each other, so the feature was removed.

    well EUR seems to be back online now
    they removed Pokemon Bank and Transfer for now and disabled the service for it

    knowing Nintendo when they finally get everything running they might give us something for free :P
