Did you hear Nintendo is turning off Wii and DS connectivity in May?
I just got a notice from Nintendo on my Wii this morning that all Wi-Fi services for the Wii and DS will be disabled in May. This includes essentially all forms of online play for all games - both ones published by Nintendo as well as ones published by others (including EA) - and all online functions for the games. Allegedly other online functions (virtual console, internet channel, etc) will still be available, though.
The full list of games effected is here:
