    gifts chanel

    New Wii Channel update will let you gift games to your connected buddies.
    by IGN Staff
    US, October 26, 2007 - Nintendo on Friday revealed that it is planning to add an update to its Wii Channel system which, when finished, will enable gamers to gift software to anybody on their system's friends list.

    The service will work hand-in-hand with the Wii Shop Channel. Wii owners who connect online will very simply be able to choose a Virtual Console or Wii Ware title, select an option to send it to a friend, and when their buddy accepts the offer, it will immediately launch them into the Wii Shop Channel where a download of the gifted game will commence.

    "We think this will be a breakthrough in encouraging customers to spread news of fun games word of mouth," Iwata said. "We also hope to spur more users to connect their Wiis to the Internet."

    Sounds like more small things that make the Wii the best console out there. IMO

    I wonder why they don't just make it so that you end Wii Points to the other person instead of a specific game?

    i love how we complain about the price of their VC games and their solution is to give us the ability to buy them for others?!?! How much sense would that make? "hhhmmm, these VC games are way to over-priced for me to play, but hell i'll buy a few for my friends..."
    just doesn't make sense to me. how about putting more VC games/lower the prices. i think that would get more people to go to wii online .As it stands i can generally buy the cart for less than 1/2 the price of the VC game, i understand there is added convenience of having it on Wii, but i mean i'd rather pay $.25 for a cart and have to pop it into my NES or N64 rather than pay $5-$10 for the game to be on Wii.

    Just my 2 cents

    No they are not shared. You would essentially pay for it on your console, but your friend would be the one would be able to download it, not you.
