I was recently reading how Nintendo doesn't really promote their software very well. Which is very true, because I'm always shocked to see an advertisement on the television for a Nintendo product. Now Nintendo does a very good job with their mailing system, but I'm sure not everybody is setup for it.
So do you think this would help out Nintendo, if they sent out the same emails to your Wii? Everyone is always happy to see that Blue light flickering, and this would give NIntendo a good chance to promote more games.
Think about it, you start up your Wii, and your have an Newsletter message, that shows, the most recent games that came out, or the top downloads titles. Endless Possibilities.
What do you think? or what are your suggestions for Nintendo?

They do that with some titles through the Nintendo Channel, but not nearly enough for some games.
I'm not really too concerned though. Other companies over saturate the market with game commercials to an annoying degree, so I'm glad Nintendo doesn't shove games I already know a ton about down my throat. A few titles, like Metroid Prime 3, could have used a bit more fanfare though.

Some more commercials would help. I miss the old school commercials that you would see for the original 8 bit Nintendo games

But if they started to send the Newsletter to your Wii, would you see a problem with that?

Or the classic Super Smash Bros commercial. I remember that one was playing a lot, and made me buy that game, because i never heard about it, until that Commercial. (By the way here is the link to that commercial =P http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K783SDTBKmg )

@bbb7002004: But, they dedicated an entire channel to promoting it. Not to mention at that time they released both the NES and SNES games on VC. I remember downloading Metroid when I was in the hospital (Long, painful story, don't ask.).
Anyways, has anyone actually seen the Punch Out!! commercial on TV? If so, what channel?

but that channel isn't really doing a lot. Just by luck i saw them saying that rhythm heaven was out, but it was just a red font, no other details or click able link about it in that channel. It's very sad

The Newsletter does seem a bit obvious, agreed.

All I ask is more good third-party supports and better Virtual Console support. That's there two majors issues with the Wii. Also, they need to increase size files for WiiWare games.

@ Smash FanThis year actually looks good for third-party support, as good as I could ask for, really. Conduit, Sin & Punishment 2, Klonoa, Murasama Demon Blade, apparently some Sonic kart racing game, and probably some more I've forgotten and more to be revealed at E3. S&P and Demon Blade particularly look great.

I really do think that this year will be a successful year for the Wii. They are getting software, that finally got it. And with a wii motion plus, that's like Wii 1.5. If the graphics match xbox360 and ps3. The Wii will be owning all of us. Haha

How could I forget Motion+? EA's two games and Red Steel 2 all look like quality 3rd party software. This certainly is shaping up to be a good year, and I think after Tuesday it'll look even better.

I thought Sin + Punishment 2 was a Nintendo title?

Published by Nintendo, developed by Treasure. Does that make it first-party? I don't know how that works. I think Treasure has the rights to the series, but what do I know?
