    Main reason why WiiWare needs work:

    512MB of internal memory.

    EDIT: Mentioned in the article, I missed it.

    Hmm demos would be nice but then again there's review sites, videos and such to see before you buy. As far as pricing goes I believe it's up to the developer? I could be wrong.

    Yes please to new storage method.

    it might sound like a cliche but only u can know what u like so u should be able to have a hands-on game demo to see if it your thing.

    I just don't see myself buying WiiWare. The Wii is limited enough by it's horsepower. The last thing I need to be doing is blowing money on games that are also limited in storage size.

    I want my Wii games in all their 8.5GB optical glory, thank you very much.

    Of course, I don't buy VC games either, but that's just me.

    I understand the bit about being able to get GC Wii games cheaper than Wiiware, but I really have no interest in fussing with even more controllers and connections to my Wii. Plus it means buying more controllers. I have 4 remotes and 2 nunchuks as it is.

    I'm not a huge VC aficionado, and I don't see myself having much interest in wiiware. Anything that helps the wii sell and brings developers is good though, so its disappointing that nintendo is dropping the ball on wiiware, adding to their list of inadequacies.

    The only game that peeked my interest was the game with the dude and the wind. Where the wiimote IR controls the wind and the nunchuk controls the main character. Sounded like it had alot of potential.

    I have hope that at E3 nintendo will squelch the complaints everyone has had. Sadly, I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't. I don't think nintendo really caters to its customers. It is a business and they do a good job making oodles of cash.
