    Christmas Surprise

    I found this article speculating on what could possibly be our Wii surprise. I don't know if I trust this site, but tell me what you guys think.

    "Wii “Christmas surprise” revealed: free VC games?
    Posted in Wii, Games, Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, Rumors, Virtual Console by Doug on December 20th, 2006 at 3:05

    Not so long ago Reggie promised us a “Christmas surprise” for the Wii, and massive speculation ran through the Internets. Browser channel? Mario Galaxy demo? In my opinion, it’s something almost as good and far more plausible than that demo: Super Mario Bros., Toe Jam & Earl, and R-Type are going to hit the Virtual Console on Christmas, for free! (We hope. Doubt is a terrible thing.)

    We here at Nintendic absolutely love that price point. This news comes from the NeoGAF forums, with screenshots obtained from switching some things on Firefox and visiting the Wii shop on your computer. ICGamers Wiki guru Messiah checked into it himself, and he says it’s legit, so we’re not basing this newspost on forum speculation.

    Please please please stay like this.

    Now the problem with this: people say that all Wii games are listed as free before release. This could very easy be that, and that they will be priced accordingly, and that having Super Mario Bros. at all is considered enough of a Christmas surprise for us, so take this with a shaker’s worth of salt."

    Oh yeah, Christmas is on a Monday, the same day the VC list is updated.


    Add me please, I need friends on my Wii. Just PM me if you add me so I can add you back. Thanks.

    If the Xbox 360 console falls and hits someone, especially a small child, it could cause serious injury.

    One possibility though is that they just didn't add in the price yet. I doubt that they would let a cash-crop like SMB go for free. That could pull in some serious bucks.

    free VC games is nice and all but not a huge deal.

    An early demo sounds a lot better to me.

    Dude I would love Nintendo if they did this. I mean thats a better gift than a Demo (since I can wait for the Mario game and this surprise is over a 20 dollar Value) Lets hope its true

    if this is true..

    it would be a great idea for marketing as those who havnt tried the shop channel will have a reason to finally try it (without having to spend money)and possibly buy more vc games in the future
