(a) the World Cup happens every year, doesn't it? why wouldn't it be happening next year?
(b) i'm sure you could find it on in some sports bars and stuff, and interested people might watch it at home too (if they're home while it's on TV), but i doubt 'most' people will go out of their way to watch it, no, not the way they go out of their way to call in sick for the Super Bowl, lol
(c) not sure what the 'David Beckham factor' is, nor do i terribly care what he's up to at the moment. soccer's never been really high on my 'things to watch' list anyway. :3

@NintenDude97: let me guess did you get the imformation off of wikipidia?..... also america only updates on mondays.....

@geek-master: actually, that information comes from Nintendo themselves via the process of elimination, providing the 'Q4' in their press release from this past September refers to the fourth quarter of the calendar year. "December '09" in this case is "December 2009", not "December 9th". :3

However, we should have to pay for them, but only up to 1,000 Wii Points and we can keep them until we get the full game. Games can be at these points: 200, 500, 800, and 1,000 Wii Points with licensed games costing 100 points more.

software companies on the internet have been using the concept of 'shareware' to offer free demos forever now. Sony/game publishers used to give out free demo discs for playstation games in magazines, packed in with other games, and sometimes even at the register if you bought or reserved a different game, and PSN even now still does free demos. Xbox Live does free demos. With the DS being able to do download play for demos since it hit the streets, it's already set the precedent for Nintendo giving out free demos and encouraging demo play with your friends if you've purchased a cartridge.

To put it bluntly, there is no way in hell people will pay for game demos, and Nintendo would be shooting themselves in the foot if they were to try and charge for them. It's a demonstration of what the game can do, and the idea is to entice us into purchasing the game(s) for ourselves. Why should we pay for that?
I only wish Ninty'd'a released demos of different games i hadn't already bought, lol

@Liam: if i recall correctly, the problem was that 'Official' sounds like something coming from a staff writer (or someone actually 'contributing' to the site itself and not just someone hanging out on the forums, or worse yet, something 'officially' condoned by Nintendo Life). They let the 'official' thread titles slide for a long time, up until someone posted that 'official bashing thread' about a game they hadn't even played yet, which was totally not cool, and Prosody laid down the law accordingly.

Prosody wrote:

Also, a note to others - please don't use the word "Official" in your title unless one of the admins says so. It reflects very badly on the site if there's a topic claiming to be "Official" that's just insulting a game or developer.

One person took it too far and killed it for everyone else. Sorry, Liam, but them's the breaks. We know what everyone means by 'unofficial', so what's the big deal? :3

@Toon Link: I locked the one topic of yours because that same exact question has been asked multiple times over on the forums (and always shows up in topics asking for favorite RPGs anyway), and I threatened to lock the other when you reverted my edit of 'official' to 'unofficial' in the title (Prosody weighed in on the issue a while back, and we've just been renaming the threads as they pop up, no big deal). Sorry if you're feeling picked on or something, but that was not my intention; seriously, dude, no offense. :3

As for merging threads, I've seen Prosody mention having done it more than once, but so far as I know, mods can't.
i feel so loved, lol
