    I didn't expect Nintendo to do anything like that anyways.

    Can't they do like PSN and have full downloads for original GB games which are playable on either your console or handheld?

    I was trying to convince myself that this thread was in fact the true liar.

    But it is time to face the truth.

    I knew someone was wrong, because the story just didn't work with the specs of the DS. It was like announcing a full size ping pong table for the back seat of a VW bug.

    How is this disappointing? This is a good thing, Nintendo handhelds have been sorely lacking a decent demo system for years. It's only any use if you own a Wii, but it's a step in the right direction. It'd be interesting to know how much they're planning on charging for the service. If you think about it console demos have rarely been free, thinking back to the PSX apart from a disc in the console box and the odd one or two free ones from Sony through the post most demos came on a CD bolted to a magazine with an inflated price tag to compensate. Of course it'd be awesome it if was free, but it's not unreasonable to think there may be a small charge for access to demo content.

    Which of course means many people will totally ignore it if they have a flash cart. Why pay for small demos when you can download the full game for free and try that?

    I will pay anyway, just to sleep alittle bit better at night [​IMG]

    as for the WiiWare not "selling full version games for the DS, both good and bad, i mean streaming data.. yey i am so free with my DS that i can move outside of range and it stops working, but at the same time i am sure i would sit there in my sofa playing games streaming of the Wii to my DS [​IMG]

    but the fact that they bring the demos to ppls homes (and i am sure it wont cost alot of money) is a step in the right direction anyway
