    RUMOR: Wii Shop Channel to get demos, subscriptions, and rentals

    A long time ago, we used a Firefox trick to view upcoming Virtual Console games. I have since forgotten how it is done, but I may want to re-learn. later on NeoGAF has posted something quite interesting. He claims that this code was found in the javascript files of the Wii Shop Channel:

    var NO_WIFI = 0; /* no WIFIFREE or WIFIPAY */
    var WIFI_PARTIALLY_CHARGED = 1; /* partially charged WIFI */
    var WIFI_FREE = 2; /* WIFIFREE only */
    var WIFI_ALL_CHARGED = 3; /* all charged WIFI */

    That looks like something about the Pay to Play service, which is quite interesting, seeing as how no game has it yet (FFCC for WiiWare does, but itís not available yet). Well, he also claims that the files hint at possible features for the Wii Shop Channel, like demos, subscriptions, and rentals. Since I donít know how to check this, I have no way of verifying it, but if it is true, this is truly great news. Someone, go and find out if this is true!

    Everyone knew about the demos. Rentals are just dumb. I hope this is true.

    Game rentals are actually cool. I don;t have to run to my nearest video game rental store to get a game. I can just browse on the Wii and pay for it online. It is quite convenient. The will be a larger selection of titles and there won't be a limit of total copies, so you don't have to wait till someone returns the game. I just hope the rentals are cheaper than $7 because that is how much it cost for 5 days at my neearest store.

    ^I believe that it is talking about download rentals meaning its probably just wiiware or VC. If you have to pay $7 for that it would just be rip off.
