    They'd lose out on way too much money.

    Nintendo, one of the stingiest companies in all existence, giving out free points at one of the busiest times of the year? Pull the other one.

    I use the word 'several' to mean 'more than a few', a 'few' meaning three. They've offered Everybody Votes, Internet, Check Mii Out, and a Metroid Prime Corruption Preview for free, in addition to the off the shelf Mii Channel, the newly upgraded Photo Channel, Forecast and News. Then there's the shop channel, but that's for their benefit. None of these blow my socks off, but don't imply that Nintendo has left us high and dry.

    It certainly costs much less than $5 for Nintendo to provide these games over WiiConnect, but it's still a $70,000,000+ value that might have become real cash during the holiday season. It also sets precedent. Would they do this every Christmas? Other holidays? Launch anniversary? People would wait for more freebies, it's just awful business and I will be shocked if any VC game is offered for free, ever.

    Yeah I am sure they get all 3rd party games for free. And there is no costs associated with making a game available online...

    Oh well I hope we get some new additions to Wii Ware soon. You have to admit though, Nintendo is offering a pretty good gaming experience (considering Wii chanels,games,virtual console,wi-fi, and more) we didnt have this in the Gamecube days.

    Oh yeah they're stingy for not giving stuff away. :rolleyes:

    You do know they're running a "business". And the point of a "business" is to make money.

    Why does everyone think Nintendo is obligated to give us stuff for free? I've never seen Xbox 360 players asking for free Microsoft points.
