    Broadband vital to Virtual Console?!!?

    hi guys..
    I'm just wondering whether you can use a dial up connection to download the VC games ?.
    obviously i coulnd't play online games using dial up, but just wondered if my VC theory could work haha..even though it would take forever to download!.haha

    Thanks in advance for answers

    It may....I can't say much but I think you may just want to get broadband if you don't have it....I mean if you don't....your going to spend years waiting to get the games you want on the virtual console!

    If all you are doing is downloading VC games, which probably will be small in size considering Wii's internal 512MB of storage is somewhat small, then dial-up should work fine, but I'm not 100% sure.

    No you cant. The preview video on IGN only shows connection options using broadband methods.

    Well actually, the Xbox was said to only allow Broadband, but there are adaptors that allow you to connect to Xbox Live via dial-up. So it's possible, it's just not condoned by Nintendo.

    It seems stupid not setting it up as standard, especially in the UK as Broadband is not all that prevalent here yet.

    It may be worth getting the broadband. If you pay monthly then in the UK (dont know where you are) then it shouldn't be that much more expensive. Only a couple of pounds a month extra if anything. Then you could go the full hit, playing online games, using the wii's opera browser etc. If you're on one of those pay as you go things, then the amount of time spent downloading, it may have been cheaper to buy broadband. Though i should imagine there would be some way of doing it with dial-up.
