    They aren't going to. Demoes would be too big for Wii's memory. And I swear to god, if I hear anyone say anything about a hard drive..... There will never be a hard drive!!! Nintendo won't ever think we need one and also they are trying to stay family focused by keeping the prices down.

    Yea there was alot of talk about this when the wii first hit the shelves. I wonder if nintendo will ever get a clue. They are behind in the next gen wars without demos :( I would love to see my blue light glow and see that it was a message from nintendo introducing the demo channel

    It definitely would be nice to have. Although I can't say that I care too much either way, but it would definitely be better than the everybody votes channel. Whoever thought that one up doesn't understand that we would like, uhh, useful channels or channels that give us information. While I'm on that topic, they might as well release a channel that is similar to the news channel, but dedicated to gaming news associated with the wii such as release dates, rumors, press conferences, etc... just a thought.

    You can buy 8GB SD Cards now. Not sure if a Wii update would allow them to work, but that would be big enough. I think demos are so worthwile. As a PC Gamer as well, I haver bought so many games after downloading and playing the demo. Imagine if a demo of MP3 was available??

    I would then suggest reading Nintendo Power Magazine, not only do they do reviews on normal games, but they also tell you what VC games to buy and what ones to pass on.

    Other than a noob?

    Nintendo wants to avoid doing things that both the X360 and PS3 do, I highly doubt that they would even think about putting something like live on the Wii.

    External Harddrive? There's no need for one..

    The demo channel WILL be in the form of Wiiware. It's already there on the shop channel. Nintendo themselves spoke about how games form various developers will be able to download and play using the Wii points system. Who knows what this means. You may be able to do demos for EA games for instance. One level on a Medal of Honor, or 2 tracks on a new Need for Speed game. You can't throw things out the window because Nintendo thinks "differently." They have the rights and the technology to do a hard drive why not? They have the means to do a demo setup, why not? If they offer the hard drive, why couldn't they offer the demos via WiiWare? Who knows is what I am saying.
