Nintendo shutting down 3DS and Wii U Eshop/Virtual Console

What are your thoughts on it? There's some pretty concerning stuff from a former Nintendo employee as well who thinks you will be unable to redownload games as early as 2023 as well:

"Asked about the full End-of-Life process and how long the ability to redownload previous purchases may stay in place for 3DS and Wii U, our source is less than optimistic about that timescale compared to Nintendo's official line of "the foreseeable future"; they predict a total shutdown of services within just a couple of years. "They will give notice in 2023 that the server will be shut down after a time." After this time, the suggestion is that online play, redownloads of purchased content, and everything else will disappear entirely. "People will 100% lose their games if something happens to their Wii U or the drive they have their games on."

This is really, really stupid. If it does happen, you know it's so they can force you to pay for NSO to get classic content, it's one thing to shut down the ability to buy games, I get that, but to remove someone's ability to re-download video games they paid for is ridiculous, all due respect but I could never see Sony doing something similar at least in the next 10 years, 20 I'll be surprised but 10 nah, not really.
