I wonder if the Wii Shop will be shut down next?

Frick! These games are best played on a DSi XL. I guess I have to invest on this before it closes in EU.

It would really be an act of good will if they would make the Four Swords Anniversary Edition available for the last time before the service closes.

oh yeah four swords for sure, another round please.
Or I mean at the very least, sell it !!
but that does mean I should buy those games before they'll disappear. I am thinking that at least we'll keep our buying history intact though.
edit : oh wait, my bad, I should have read that better. It doesn't change a lot. "DSiWare will still be available for purchase from the Nintendo eShop" , so basically at some points, they'll just switch to real money instead of points ?
oh frack, I'll just get that q games, and the shooter from arika.

Yikes :/ This is unfortunate.

I'm glad those titles will be moved over onto the eshop for 3ds users. In case anything ever happens, at least I won't have to worry about losing some of the good DSi games, like pictobits.
