    Nintendo shutting down several Wii channels in June

    Nintendo shutting down several Wii channels in June



    Nintendo has announced that several Wii channels will cease operation in June.





    It looks like Nintendo is preparing to do a bit of cleaning with the original Wii, as CVG is reporting that several Wii channels that grace the console now will be shut down come June. Those channels include:

    • Nintendo Channel
    • News Channel
    • Forecast Channel
    • Everybody Votes Channel
    • Mii Contest Channel
    • Data exchange with Wii Friends

    It’s inevitable that as a new console replaces the old, services will be taken offline. We saw it happen with the old Xbox and now it’s happening with Nintendo’s Wii as well. The statement Nintendo gave about the shutdowns was rather apologetic, but inevitable:
    “We at Nintendo sincerely thank you for your continued patronage of our company’s products. We apologise to those of you currently using these services.”

    I never use any of those channels either, lol. I'll probably delete them too. It is a bit sad to see the Wii going by the wayside, but when the WiiU is fully hacked that'll make up for it.
