    The Wii network has now been turned on, and many gaming websites are posting up their first impressions of the Wii Channels and the Virtual Console.

    Here's the full launch list:

    * Donkey Kong (NES)
    * Legend of Zelda (NES)
    * Mario Bros. (NES) -- that's not "Super"
    * Soccer (NES)
    * Pinball (NES)
    * Wario's Woods (NES)
    * Solomon's Key (NES)
    * F-Zero (SNES)
    * Sim City (SNES)
    * Altered Beast (GEN)
    * Sonic (GEN)
    * Super Mario 64 (64)

    Here's a video run through from a Wired Blog showing the initial update through WiiConnect24 and both the Wii Shop points ordering and the download process of a few NES games.

    Joystiq have also managed to get online and download Zelda:
