Recently I have tried playing a Nintendo Wii game, Mario Kart Wii, online, As I was always able to. However, before I could connect, I got a nasty message saying that the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection service has been discontinued.
By looking at this link: http://www.nintendo....ices-update.jsp , it appears that Nintendo has discontinued all online in-game features for many Wii, DS and DSi games. The following link provides a full list:http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/gameslist/en/games-wifi.jsp .
Personally, I find this somewhat greedy on Nintendo's part. Who here would like if Microsoft blocked out all internet access on Windows 98/95/ME/2000/XP/Vista just because they are older. It would not be nice seeing messages like "Your software is out of date. Please upgrade to a more reliable operating system, like Windows 8.1, to use the internet."
Now getting back to the point, I was wondering if anyone knew of any workarounds. All help is appreciated.
PS: I did not mean to offend Nintendo. I was simply stating my opinion.
