    Wii Shop shutdown will take more than 200 classic games with it, so say goodbye to a fantastic Virtual Console selection!

    We all knew this 'date' would be coming, and here it is if you owner of original Wii console, and love the 'Virtual Console', say goodbye to it in 2019, and hope you never have a hardware breakdown, as you will NOT be able to re-download your purchased content. :)
    The big question is when will the Wii U Shop shutdown take place, and will Nintendo ever offer an 'Virtual Console' on the Switch so that we can of course 're-buy' all our previously purchased digital content again, as we all love giving our money to big 'N'. :)

      This is why I REFUSE to purchase digital content on consoles. I will NEVER purchase any for this reason.
