Miiverse shutdown message

  • #1 ✎ 184 GoodGameGod Good Page Hidden Achievements Spring 2017 Contest Runner Up I placed 2nd in the SmileBASIC Source Spring 2017 Contest! Programming Contest Avatar Embargo I didn't change my avatar for 90 days Website So for those who have been living under a rock, (Because most of you probably already know this) Dataminers analyzing Wii U’s newest firmware update have found evidence that Miiverse will be ending soon, (My guess is a year or two) this was posted by "Shiny Quagsire" on twitter who found the following message: “The Miiverse service has ended. Miiverse and any software features that make use of Miiverse are now unavailable.” If you're like me, then chances are this news isn't exactly devastating, since I only really used it for SB screenshots and stuff. (And since SBS is better anyway imo) I'm curious what most people here think, so here's a poll on it: Posted Edited by GoodGameGod

Programming Strength OSP Contest 1 Contest Participant I participated in the first SmileBASIC Source OSP Contest! I don't necessarily think the fact that the software contains the message now means they're going to use it immediately; software makes preemptive changes all the time. But considering the fact that Miiverse hasn't been added to Switch (yet… aside from Splatoon 2 but I think that's a bit different) and the fact that the Switch is effectively the Wii U 2 makes it look to me like Wii U support is dropping on the horizon; maybe they'll only close Miiverse on the Wii U. I don't think they'll close it for 3DS since new titles stll use it pretty frequently, and I personally would consider that a bad move. Miiverse is actually useful for a few things (it's the only way of taking 3DS screenshots) and I think having a central game community is better than just using Twitter or something. Plus, service closure is always bad for somebody, unless they plan on replacing/reintegrating it. Posted
  • #3 ✎ 716 YanFen This is not what data mining means. We had a thread discussing this somewhere else, I believe, but the important part of Miiverse closing to this community (whether you find it "good" or "bad" as a community experience notwithstanding) is that Miiverse is used for screenshots of SB. I don't follow anything enough to know if that's being replaced by something else, but if you can't take 3DS screenshots without third-party firmware, that's very inconvenient. In addition, however much of a stupid mess Miiverse is for these purposes, there are still many programs and keys stored only there, which might be lost when this happens. If this approaches, it might be wise to urge miiverse users to collect their own keys from their profiles and archive them here. Posted

    Splatoon 2 still has the tools to make miiverse-like drawings, but it's uploaded to social media as I recall. (Also, Nintendo has stated that miiverse will not make an appearance on the switch) Miiverse for the wii u and 3DS are one and the same, if I remember correctly, so it would be weird if they stopped letting wii u owners access miiverse, but 3DS owners still could. Anyway, I think this is at least one or two years away, and I also think that nintendo will give a heads up in advance which will be helpful...In the meantime, as lumage said, it'd be a good idea to save anything you have on miiverse that you want to keep and when the time draws near, urge other users to do the same.

    I'm curious what most people here think, so here's a poll on it:
    Where's the option for "The miiverse community was useless, but this will be annoying as hell"?

  • #11 ✎ 1230 12Me21 Admin Syntax Highlighter Received for creating the code syntax highlighter on SBS And yeah, I highly doubt miiverse is going to shut down in the next year or 2. They probably just added that message so by the time miiverse does end, pretty much everyone will have the firmware update that has the "miiverse has ended" message and you won't just get a random error code.

    This is definitely the kind of thing I was referring to with the "preemptive update" statement. If this error message had been in the software since the beginning nobody would care; it's just that it had to be "added" which is concerning people.

  • #16 ✎ 12 Gale_Storm Video Games I like to play video games! Hobbies Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself Zelda Is Awesome! I love The Legend Of Zelda! Express Yourself I'm wondering. If Miiverse were to discontinue, would the Wii-U and 3DS receive and update that would allow you take screenshots in-game without it? That's really the only feature that I would be genuinely upset about losing. Posted
