Well, we don't know much about it, but my job, o faithful reader, is to suck hard when I taste the flimsiest stream of liquid trickling from the game industry's PR tit.
Beginning in Spring 2007, Nintendo will apparently begin the "Wii Compact Software" line of games which will allow players to download certain Wii titles to their console rather than purchasing a disc. Pricing and storage details, as well as what software will be made available, were not provided.
Well, that's certainly a little cooler than the VirtualConsole. Are we going to see Nintendo's equivalent of XBLA, where smaller developers might get the chance to offer cool, tiny games to home users? Or are these more likely to be little quasi-useful widgets aimed squarely at the house mother set Nintendo's trying to appeal to with the Wii?
I would much ratehr buy games from a store than pay with my credit card on something that could get deleted, the disc and case carry so much sentimental value for my games, i wouldn't have it any other way
To be honest I thought we already knew this.. Iwata is always banging on about how small developers can sells games like Tetris through the VC.
yeah, but this is talking about wii titles, not just a 8-bit game right?
I don't know why, but I prefer the discs..
Downloading a full game would take a long long time.
