The recent downtime for Nintendo Network and the Nintendo eShop was caused by “a one-time surge in demand” during the holidays, according to a post on the company’s Facebook page.
The network began crashing on Christmas Day. During that time, Nintendo Network experienced “an influx” of users both creating new accounts and attempting to access the eShop. Users transferring existing Nintendo 3DS account information to new Network accounts compounded the problem.
Not very optimistic of them. They may someday have another surge in demand possibly.
