    The assumption gave it already longer, now is official it: Apart from Virtual CONSOLE plays Wii fans with Internet entrance will be able to download also demo versions of Wii titles. One can store the demos then either in 512 MT the large Flashspeicher of the console or on a separately available SD-map. Which demos make the beginning, Nintendo wants shortly admits to give.

    Hmm... Is that only for Europian players or do you think it will release in the US too?

    Thank god they're doing that. You can play a game to see if you like it before you blow 50 bucks. I really hope the US gets this. Wow it will really be a lfie saver.

    My original plan was to rent games at Blockbuster to see which are good.

    Exactly.....it cuts out the middle man....I wonder if BBV has enough clout to block this in north america. I think this makes the most sense and can possibly hook some gamers on games they would have never rented in the first place.

    How much space would these take up?

    They probably won't be too big because isn't the internal memory only 512mb?

    I'm sure they can make them pretty small (~100mb might be good <- pure speculation) and you also have the SD card.

    It would be so cool if the Wii could communicate with the Nintendo DS so you can get demos of the latest DS games to play on your handheld console.

    I work at a blockbuster and feel quite differently,

    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
    Rrrrrol up the Rrrrrrim Stats:

    "Please play again" = 25
    Free Coffee/Donut = 4

    I think that is actually pretty likely (and a smart move) but wouldn't the DS require a firmware update for Wii connectivity? Nintendo, as far as I know, don't do firmware updates for the DS.
