Japanese gaming website Tech-On recently bagged an interview with the Nintendo President himself.
Satoru Iwata goes on to discuss aspects of both the virtual console and ofcourse wiiconnect24.
Here are some snippets from the interview:
"Let's say your Wii is connected to the Internet in a mode that allows activation on a 24-hour basis""This would allow Nintendo to send monthly promotional demos for the DS, during the night, to the Wii consoles in each household. Users would wake up each morning, find the LED lamp on their Wii flashing, and know that Nintendo has sent them something. They would then be able to download the promotional demo from their Wii's to their Nintendo DS's."Here's the full article:"This will, of course, be possible in gaming stores too, but I think users will enjoy being able to do this within their homes. The key merit here is having promotional material delivered to your home, instead of having to go collect it yourself."
