Same, Nintendo shut down the WiFi services of the DS way back in 2013, making a lot of games quite unplayeable. Dunno why the Wii had this privilege for so long >:(

The Wii is said to be revolutionary, as much as I didn't notice it.

I still have my wii from 1996.  It plays, but the new games are a little slow on it.  Will they make a new store?

May 2014 actually. I remember like yesterday shortly before I graduated HS and a week before Mario Kart 8 came out. The reason they did that is so they could force Nintendo fans to switch (no pun intended) to Wii U and 3DS games permanently for online experience. I also think the failure of the Wii U had a lot to do with it as well, so they were trying to increase the amount of units sold. I stopped playing Nintendo games long before then tho.

It's officially an end of an era....

Wii Shop Channel brings back so many memories. While I loved playing classics like Twilight Princess and Metroid Prime 3 back in the day, I have just as much nostalgia of playing those games as playing so many classic gems on the Wii Shop Channel. From rediscovering games like Ocarina of Time and Super Smash Bros, to being introduced to new experiences (at least for me) like the Megaman games on the NES, Kid Iccarus (ironically right before Brawl came out, which led to a revitalization of Pit's character), the original The Legend of Zelda, the NES version of Super Mario Bros. 3, I could go on and on. This truly is very disheartening, and I am certainly going to miss it :\'(.

Theres a reason why I consider the Wii the last major console of my childhood, and the nostalgia of playing (ironically) nostalgic experiences of past games from the prior 20 years of Nintendo history (not to mention Sega, Turbo Grafix 16, etc. etc.) was certainly a major highlight of my Wii experience.

RIP Wii Shop Channel: 2006-2019

I remember Eazy E-Man, back when he was here, saying the Wii was a disappointment to him (opposite of Zelda's opinion). Wonder how he'd react to this, maybe apathetic.

Pretty sure Wii was a disappointment to everybody who wasn't a kid.  :\'(

It's still a shame it's closing though since it had so many retro games. The Switch/3DS stores are a disgrace in comparison.

Well Eazy was still a kid in 2006. He said he got the original Xbox for Christmas then, later than everyone else, and it's the last console he associates with his childhood.

The Wii wasn't worth buying until more games were released in 2007 despite it's debut in 2006. Believe it or not. Most of my friends in middle school cared more about the XBOX 360 than the Wii, and I can see why. You start getting into more mature games instead of cartoony games once you hit your teen years. When it came to Nintendo consoles or handhelds most people around our age played the Gamecube, Gameboy Advance, or DS. It was about half and half when it came to the amount of people who had N64's or Wii's. Kids who started with the N64 finished with the Gamecube, while kids who started with the Gamecube finished with the Wii.

If you weren't heavy into the Mario games, then you were out of luck. I understand. Luckily I enjoyed games like Super Mario Galaxy, Mario Kart Wii, and New Super Mario Bros Wii. I also played a lot of old NES, SNES, and N64 games on the Virtual Console (which you'd get on the Wii Shop Channel) and it was backwards compatible with the old Gamecube games. So I enjoyed the Wii not just for the Wii games, but for all the old games as well.

See, in middle school, I remember some of my friends saying not to get the 360 because one of them exploded in somebody's house. ;D Later they said to get one because they apparently fixed all the bugs and they weren't exploding anymore.

Yeah, but I think the exploding part was probably made up by my classmates. I'd have to check though.

I did the towel trick where you overheat the Xbox 360. It worked for about a year.

General hardware failure. Xbox 360 had shoddy build quality. Microsoft wanted to be first onto market in 2005 and rushed out junk hardware that wasn't built last.

Might want to have your "colage" professor give you a quick recap on capatilization, punctuation, and spelling then.  Back to elementary school, bud.

I didn't hate the Wii. I just wasn't into its library of games. Me and my Wii had a "play you whenever" type of relationship. I was generally losing interest in games as a whole by then.

Ok that makes sense. I'm mainly talking about the guys that claim to be fans of Nintendo that feel that the Wii was when Nintendo sold its soul. In some sense, I do agree because it was around the time when Nintendo officially waived the white flag from directly competing with Sony & Microsoft, but at the same time despite the casual shift in marketing the console still managed to have a great array of games. Both first & third party. Wii Sports, Wii Sports Resort, The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess, Super Mario Galaxy, Mario Kart Wii, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, No More Heroes, Klonoa, Metroid Prime 3, The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword, Xenoblade Chronicles, Donkey Kong Country Returns, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, I could go on and on. Theres a reason why the Wii is and will likely remain Nintendo's highest best selling successful console in its history, let alone in Video Game memorabilia.
