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: Wednesday, December 25, 2013 5:15 AM Pacific Time Ongoing Did Nintendo sell that many WiiU's this holiday ? 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 ?
