Nintendo readies “major” website overhaul


“Nintendo is working on a major overhaul to to support the continued success of Nintendo DS and Wii,” reads a statement from “As we prepare for this huge site update, Nintendo must unfortunately close the Nintendo NSider Forums message boards indefinitely beginning Sept. 17, 2007.”

For the time being, the four-year old forums will be read-only for the next week before who knows what will become of their monstrous amount of user-generated content.

A site update is much overdue in my eyes; being the web geek that I am, I can’t wait to see what Nintendo developers come up with.
