    If the Wii could be made to act like a DS Download station like are in stores, then the DS would not need any upgrades.

    The game demos can be good because people can see if they really want to spend the 60 on buying the game or the 10 on renting it.

    They wouldnt block it anyways because they are not that powerful lol
    They Aren't? I should ask for a refund on my soul which I traded in last week along with a copy of Star wars battlefront

    Whoa that's it? Actually I guess I shouldn't have expected much as it is a nintendo system. They typically stream line moreso then the other companies.

    All the big N would have to do to by pass this issue would be to make a small DS emulator for the Virtual console. Anyone who owns the Nintendo WiFi connector can get the latest firmware update to implement this new feature. Then you would be able to download demos to you DS the same way you would when you go to one of those in store kiosks and download a demo to your DS. I believe someone has already found a way to hack the WiFi USB connector. I'll have to see if I can still find the link.
