This is counterproductive, really. They will lose interested people when they find out they were lying. Didn't expect it from Nintendo, I always deemed them as honest and very ethical. First time I witness this kind of cheap excuse from them.
This is the reason many, myself included, still haven't paid to use online. Nintendo has a very slow approach to everything, they take so much time that when they finally resolve what most claim, it's too late already or people don't care about that specific thing anymore.
