Honestly... PC Gaming doesn't win in this realm either. Now... you may find some user based servers running longer, but game servers shutdown as well.
Phantasy Star Online on the PC is only online because users made it so. IF it was up to Sega, it would be dead.
It's cool that Nintendo kept the Wii services running for as long as they have. Also Per @retro junkie
's comment... it really shouldn't be that hard to move Wii Store games to other platforms... OR make them available immediately on the Nintendo Switch
for Download. That's the part that's dumbfounding. There's absolutely no reason to not be able to do that. But instead, you have to move the Virtual Console games from the Wii to the Wii U. I know this process didn't work for me when I bought my Wii U. I had to start my Wii U from scratch. Now, I'm let trying to figure it out and work on a contingency plan just in case it doesn't work out. I guess that's another First World Problem
