Nintendo's Nsider Forums have been a source of lively Nintendo-centric debate and discussion for over four years, and now, it's closed down. The forum will be available in read only form until September 24th. Then, poof! Gone!
According to Nintendo they are "working on a major overhaul to Nintendo.com to support the continued success of Nintendo DS and Wii."
"While their future remains uncertain, in the interim we invite our fans to build on the spirit of community by starting their own Nintendo discussion sites."
It might not be all over for the Nintendo community, however, as Nintendo reports "We'll see you soon elsewhere on the Web."
TheFeed predicts the promised "overhaul" of Nintendo's community site will involve incorporation of the Wii and the DS in some unforeseen (and no doubt adorable) way.
