nintendo zone is comeing!!! yey!! yippie!! so nintendo zone is like a wi-fi hotspot for ds/dsi gamers who want free internet and game demos. nintendo zone is the new and inproved vershion of ds download station whitch no one liked please show your exsitement on this fun service comeing to a restraunt near you!!!!!!!
nintendo zone will offers a wep wi-fi service at mcdownalds and bisnuss places.but ds lite owners will still be able to enjoy the nintendo zone but with less ability to do the fun things nintendo zone has to offer. if you have read the dsi manual whitch you probaly have not.there is a discription of the nintendo zone. the ds download station launched during the first ds launch. this service was provided so people could try ds game demos before they buy the actual game. nintendo of america noticed that not many people were useing this service so they decided to make a fresh start. in japan ds station just like ds download station but much like nintendo zone was out at the same time. in japan nintendo zone had features like wi-fi play and ds demos but there was a electronic stand in japanies stores called ds station that basecly resembaled a gas station its true. it had a ds mounted on it and a built in tv screen. that told people what games people were playing in the area online. who's was in the ds station by showing people's ds user names on screen the ds station. and what people were doing there. so more people could join in on the fun. sadly we dont have ds station but nintendo of america anounced nintendo zone shortly before the the north amercan launch of the dsi. it seems like nintendo zone will atract a croud of ds/dsi gamers so they can play with eachother.
what will you exspect when your in a nintendo zone?if you go to a nintendo zone and your dsi is turned on you will see a icon flashing on screen telling you that you are in a nintendo zone thats when the fun begens! you can then see what other people are doing so you can play with someone or simply do game demos.we heard rumors that if your at mc donalds there will be ds download play games like help ronald mc downald find his friends or something like if your at burger king you can play a game on your ds like make a burger. but one thing that would be cool is if you were at a mall and you could download a map of the mall on ds download play!
for ds lite/ds ownersdont wory your not left out! you still can accsess nintendo zone but in a difrant way. you can download game demos by ds download play or connect to wi-fi by serching for a connection. unfortunatly when you walk in a nintendo zone it wont flash a icon only the dsi will do it.
overal this is a exlent service for ds/dsi gamers! we hope you enjoy it when it comes to north america!please show your exsitement on this fun new service by commenting!

As geek-master said, supposedly the Nintendo Zone will be a Wi-Fi Connection hotspot instead of just a download station. Outside Japan, though, the only Nintendo Zone running at the moment is the test location in the Nintendo World store.
the future of NL >:3

It would be awesome if restaurants in NA would use this technology, but I know it's just not going to happen. Unless it's super cheap and LOTS of people use/request it.

There's a lot of places that already offer normal wireless (McDonalds, Panera, Starbucks) to their patrons, so I don't see why they (McDonalds, at least) wouldn't be willing to modify whatever existing setups they've got and then make a big fuss via commercials, cardboard stands, signs, etc. about how kids can bring in their Nintendo DSs and get an extra pokemon or play a new level on (insert game here). It would help bring in the customers for them, IMO.

I'm so excited about Nintendo Zone, still a lot of Wal-Mart and other stores don't have Nintendo Zone yet. I keep asking the people at Wal-Mart here in McDonough, GA about Nintendo Zone and they told me that the Nintendo representative will install it this week. I've yet to stop by GameStop to see if they have it. Hopefully McDonalds and GameStop along with Target will begin advertising Nintendo Zone this week.
