Nintendo's gone back to general maintenance periods (normally every Monday with Tuesdays being included on certain occasions).

Because the digital shop general maintenance happened yesterday, Nintendo postponed the general 3DS & Wii U online maintenance until today.  General Wii U Online maintenance will be happening within a couple of hours and general 3DS & additional Wii U Online Maintenance happening overnight.

 

Don't expect me to post much about general Monday/Tuesday maintenance periods anymore unless there's a reason it could be important.

For the next number of nights, Nintendo will be running 3DS and Wii U online maintenance:

Showtimes for each night until the 19th are 9 PM Pacific until 12/12:30 AM Pacific.  This includes one hour following CS's Mario Kart 8 night on Thursday night.

I'd like to mention now certain areas of the Nintendo Network will be down for general server maintenance one hour after Mario Kart 8 tourney night is over tomorrow.  This heads-up is for the night owls that play online late Thursday nights (or spend their late night uploading from Mario Kart 8's MK TV).

I normally have stopped posting updates since there is really no reason to post about common/regular maintenance periods and common anti-homebrew firmware updates, but Nintendo just posted all of their digital shops will have EXTENDED maintenance on Monday, June 27.  The period will go from 9 AM Pacific to 5 PM Pacific for a total of eight hours (normally it would be just about for four hours).

 

Since all of the shops will be down for maintenance, this also impacts buying eShop games off Nintendo of America's official website and redeeming digital coupons/games from My Nintendo.

Nintendo has updated their Nintendo Accounts system to allow you to use your Nintendo Accounts to play third party Nintendo games.  There is a little confusion here, so maybe somebody can clarify, but I THINK it's for like say in the past you had to have like an EA Origin account to play EA games or a UPlay account for Ubisoft games, but now instead you can use your Nintendo Account to access EA and Ubisoft games for example.

 

I might be wrong on that assumption though.

I think it's less useful than that, based on the email I got a few days ago about Torgina's account (the same thing in the linked article). It sounds like they've just made a public API to accessing account information that game developers can use, whereas before it was super secret sauce that only Nintendo knew. It just means that 3rd parties can access account information, and if they want to, integrate things into their games.

 

I'd wager they're unlikely to want to, since that would translate into cost for them rather than just requiring you to use their existing cross platform solution.

Also make it easier to sign up for their services using a Nintendo account. EA had something like that for Xbox Live and, I assume, PlayStation Network.
