Damn I own a DS Lite but I don't even play online. Yet I feel oddly sad about this

DS still has better games than 3DS though.

Does this mean that we won't be able to trade between gen 5/4 games anymore?

WHAT?! NO MORE MARIO KART WII ONLINE?! FUUU-!!

Man, this is terrible... We'll have to wait 10 days after this to be able to play any type of Mario Kart online (Besides that shitty 3DS one).

Brawl matches? This article implies Brawl had online to begin with.

Well on emulators it does.

PokéTransfer is conducted via DS Download play, which utilizes the DS's local wi-fi capabilities. So yes, you should still be able to transfer betweeen Gen IV and V. That would be a huge oversight on Nintendo's part to release PokéBank and forget about getting your Gen IV people in.

This is very sad. A lot of communities on this site will be reduced to discussion by this. This is truly the end of an era.

Really? What point is there in playing MKW without online? There's still a surprising amount of players on it. I feel sorry for anyone that buys it after this happens. Honestly, MKW's online was pretty much the only reason I'd even suggest a Wii to someone.

Guess I have to play it some more again before it's gone for good.

Yeah, now you need to go get a Wii U for MK8's release in May (10 days after MKW's online dies). Glad I have a Wii U now.

Same, I'll be jumping on there for the next couple months. Unless someone creates a Homebrew-Based online service for MKW (I almost guarantee someone will), then this is the last time you'll ever be able to experience MKW's online. After May 20th, it'll become "Unused content".

Sounds more like a ploy to drive more Wii U sales.
