    Yeah, I saw that in the link from the other thread. So basically the Wii will act like a download kiosk in your home. Great idea!

    These are good ideas that Nintendo have made. Hopefully this will all happen, it would be nice to download the demo of the games to my Nintendo DS. Also, here is the link where I saw that article...Basically says the same thing.

    Vaporware is death amongst fans so companies have gotten more careful about saying stuff at trade shows that's not going to happen. I would guess these things are a given at this point.

    Do you think that the Wii connect 24 will be accessable in New Zealand?

    I'm pretty sure it'll be accessible anywhere there's a wireless internet connection.

    If you don't have a wireless router, but your computer is wi fi compatible, you can get an adaptor, sort of like the one for the DS.

    Wii Connect24 will be awesome for ssbb because you could download new characters or stages. So if were not satisfied with the characters that are already in the game they can send us a new character every now and then.
    Good thinking Nintendo.

    Yea, but their not sure that their going to do that with ssbb, because then what was the point of bringing in those 5 new characters now, and not just put them on the download. To me, to many things can happen with that, most of which are bad. If it turns out, great more power to nintendo, but they should be careful, because not all households are built up against viruses as nintendo is. [Good ideas though]

    true and thanx. Developers would probaly play with this and start releasing only half of the games then u would have to download the other half later.

    this whole thing seems to be saying that the ds is going to have a more role with the connectivity with the wii, which is great.
