    All answers about the Wii such as simple questions like this are everywhere. Yes you can but you have to purchase points to use on the shop channel.

    Via the shop channel it starts at £7 for 1000 points which would get you any game in the selection they have at the moment. You can pay quite simply over the net by entering your debit/credit card details and there you go.

    If you're in the US, 100 points is equal to $1. Just buy points and download away.HOW THE HELL DID YOU NOT KNOW THIS?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

    Need a points card for the downloads.
    System's range from Nes,Snes,Sega Genesis and the N64.
    Should be $20 for 2000 points.
    Each game is around 500-800 points.
    N64 games are 1000 points.

    You can't, you have to pay for points at a store that sells them (Best Buy, Circuit City) then you can download them off the Shop Channel to play on your Wii. And as mentioned before, Wii Points cost:

    $1 - 100 points
    $5 - 500 points
    $10 - 1000 points
    $20 - 2000 points

    Well still. The Virtual Console is a big selling point of the Wii.

    Of course you can buy more points on the Wii Shopping channel. In fact, that's the only way I've ever done it. And it's more flexible than buy the 2000 point cards in retail stores because you can buy as little as 1000 points at a time.

    Same here, Skippy.

    Out of curiosity, I bought a 2000 points card from Best Buy and they charged me tax, which I thought was crap because I was buying currency with currency, but oh well. Sucks when I can buy 2000 points at a time through my Wii/check card for $20 even and never have to stand behind their roped off lines.

    Actually, when I purchased points from the Shop channel, with my credit card, they still charged me tax. It was based on the state where the card is addressed, obviously. So, the no tax rumor is a lie. The only way to get a sweet deal on Wii points is to wait on accessory specials at Toys r us or something.
