    I think that Nintendo should start making demo compilations so we can get a feel for a game and how it plays before we make a decision. Alot of people aren't buying some of the games because they feel skepticism for the control schemes and this would provide a solution.

    This could be executed via WiFi, where we buy the demo compilation at the Wii Shop channel for FREE and then that goes to a new channel where you can play your demos.
    Alternatively they could just shove some demo discs in their Nintendo Power's every month, but it wouldn't be as stylish.

    I thought it was a game channel and I'll bet it's an extension of the Shop Channel you can tell by the layout The big N has big plans

    Yeah just rumors, but I can see this happening, also something to do with the DS as well. Maybe download demos and such through the wii?

    Nintendo could really add some great features here!
    They need to add Hard drive compatibility.

    1.) renting costs money
    2.) you can't rent anywhere in UK

    I see what your saying but, instead of renting 5 or 6 games, instead you could demo 5 or 6 games for nothing. And if you dont like the game its not sitting collecting dust for a week or however long you have it for.
