Nintendo ending DS and Wii online multiplayer in May

Nintendo has announced that it will end support for its online multiplayer service on the DS and Wii. Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection will shut down on May 20th, meaning that games will no longer work online; Wii apps like Hulu, YouTube, and the built-in browser will also remain unaffected, as will the online store. The announcement comes under a year after Nintendo said it would kill various built-in apps on the Wii. Although Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection supported popular titles in series like Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros., the DS and Wii were never seen as a haven for online gaming, partly because they employed an inconvenient system of friend codes rather than Xbox Live-style profiles.
