PREVIEWS Skylanders Trap Team Preview
While younger gamers have flocked to the brand, more mature consumers remain reluctant to jump on board. Skylanders move forward with trappable enemies, though I doubt it’ll turn stubborn heads.

What.the.shiz. Death to the Pokemon community! Affen, I'm going to need to find open wi-fi and play some old kart with you.

Did you expect this to happen? So soon? Share your thoughts!

That was a pretty short lifespan for some of the Wii games.

think this is being done to try and boost the Wii U? Force people offline on the Wii so they can come to the Wii U and enjoy netflix and the like?

Ah I didn't even think about Netflix.

But a 15 second google search reveals that this doesn't affect the Netflix app. This is pretty much only killing the multiplayer functions of Wii and DS games.
