Ok, it sucks you cannot sell these games if you get a stinker, and you cannot rent or demo, too bad.

But then again, the price is right, and I feel fair, and it is fun to do your research before buying, and good grief this is not 1985, we have you tube, and message baords and last and least pro reviewers! (am I right???)

But this is a fun hobby for me, wiiware collecting - I always ask for wiiware points for birthday or Christmas presents, lol, childish yes, but then you are more apt to buy, it is all a fun surprise...

So yeah a corny thread, but do you know what I mean? I liked the idea of wiiware prelauch, and I like the reality even better, man I have some great games, it has really balanced the '3-d epic(or most often generic) big game' that console gaming has been afflicted by since basicaly the mid 1990's....

Its like 1987, but pull the stops out devs, you have all the power you need!

Yeah, don't you feel this games are so creative, and it is a nice and exciting service, and the retail shelves look a little bland in comparison?

OK, if it was a presidential ticket my buying habits would nominate Nintendo EAD/ Wiiware - 2009

And our platform would be fun arcade games like Sports 2 and Mario Kart and Excite bots
And extraordinary platformers like Mario Galxy and Co.
And the random awesomeness of Wiiware!

lulz indeed, Eugene. To someone else that's not quite good with the English language, I see how that'd be funny.

Hey, that's right, it is like when I was a kid,
and there's all these games available!

Wiiware is here!
You have the oppurtunity right out of the box,
to use your control-pad and 1 and 2 buttons,
and download not only Virtual Console titles
(NES, SNES, N64, even additions etc.)
but play titles now that may not have otherwise been released on disc or so.

The ;next-step; is I think MotionPlus WiiWare titles!
After reading the
Iwata Asks on MotionPlus
Untitled
From the article ©2009 Nintendo:
_... Keizo Ota ... was in charge of developing the SDK for this project. _
stated:
And finally, I have one more thing to say to the game developers. If you have any problems, don't hesitate to get in touch!

It's pretty interesting and yet another fun read.

Yes, so there are many more possibilities now!
Let's hope those possibilities are realized and taken
to even further heights of gamedom!

I agree with the OP, there's some fun stuff happening and the price is certainly a helluva lot lower than 2600 carts were back in the day! Even when I get a duff one I'm not too put out.

Lakitu, you make a good point. Wiiware devs have given a fair amount of love to the Balance Board accessory, and with MP riding on the wave of Sports Resort, I do not expect this to be any different....

But honestly that is a imaginary cart out in front of the horse, I just want to play Resort!

Some people act like this will change EVERY Wii game, but that is foolishness, heck, look at the rest of the N-E-3 lineup, Mario Galaxy uses wimote/nunchuck, New Super Mario is wimote alone, NES style, and Wii FIt Plus is balance board obviously. So it is another tool in the chest, Wii has a delicously ridiculous variety of control schemes. Think about it, it is crazy!

There are some great games on WiiWare,but there is a lot of shovelware also (like Pong Toss).
I still think Nintendo needs to support the Virtual Console more.
