Nintendo and Dentsu announced on Tuesday that they will be discontinuing their "Wii no Ma" video streaming and advertising service for the Nintendo Wii console on April 30. The service, which launched on May 1, 2009, was designed to be a "new style of advertising service" that connected companies and products to the homes of consumers through streaming video.
As an offer of gratitude to its users, the service will launch the "Arigatō no Ma" campaign on March 3. Under the campaign, users will have the opportunity to receive Wii no Ma-related prizes such as Wii no Ma desk calenders.
