The Wii U eshop has been down for over 10 hours now due to unscheduled maintenance so what on earth is taking Nintendo so long bringing the services back online and why haven't they mentioned anything to the public? Is it a huge update or was the eshop hacked? What are your thoughts?

Hmm, I was wondering the same thing myself...I hope it wasn't hacked or anything. Maybe the eshop is overloaded by masses of people downloading One Piece: World Red...LOL.

I was wondering the same thing too. Been trying to get on since 6:30 est to download One Piece.
My logical side says that the server could of crash, my illogical side says the eshop is being plundered by pirates.

Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.

Huge update is coming... that's my guess.

Could be something to do with the recent clam that the Wii U has been hacked. They could be setting up an update to counter it.

They're finally implementing the rare downloads program, but it's taking so long because they're preparing the servers to calculate the money that'll go into @ogo79 's bank account.

They're laying groundwork for SNES and GBA VC. Cross-buy is becoming a reality!

Why do I set such high expectations? It was probably some bozo from Nintendo who thought it was funny to flip a switch and shut down the eShop. What a jerk. -_-

Now playing:
Hyrule Warriors (Wii U) | Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS (3DS) | UP NEXT: Fantasy Life (3DS - Out on October 24)

I would come up with a clever name for my backloggery, but my name prevents it.

Maybe their getting ready to release GC and N64 games for the VC. Or their just doing something to make the eshop better in someway.

It's obvious that they're merging both eShops completely, so you can buy Wii U games on your 3DS and it will start downloading on your Wii U and vice-versa. The catch is that you still have to buy Virtual Console games twice for each system. Now both versions are visible on one system! ;)

No, they're moving the release of SSB 3DS to tomorrow, and it will be free for a week.

The eshop is down so that everyone at nintendo can work to finish smash asap.

Yet I could totally see Nintendo doing it too. Anyways, maybe it has something to do with the Elite gifts for Club Nintendo?
