    If its what I think it is, then its not a demo but 2 (currently) videos that stream over the Internet.
    I downloaded it this morning

    Hopefully this MP3 preview channel will get expanded, and there is no reason why it could be, and then there would be game trailers/gameplay videos on a dedicated channel.

    You don't quite think about that when you read the mail haha! I've only thought about it when I found it wasn't a playable demo. [​IMG]

    IGN had just made an article on the lack of hype for this game but it seems Nintendo is telling everyone with a Wii about this game...

    Looks like the only new things on the channel will be the movies on the 13th. Hopefully Nintendo starts using the Shop channel for demos though.

    Why couldn't they have a "demo" channel for the Wii? Sounds interesting.

    So um, delete stuff if you don't use it much. You can always redownload it if you want to play a demo/video later.

    Have you seen the size of demos anymore for the PC? They are usually about 700 MB for a 4 GB final game. The Wii just doesn't have the room for demos I'm afraid. Now if Nintendo would get off their butts and make some kind of external harddrive...

    funny, nintendo could fit 5-6 gamecube demo's and 3-4 video's on a gamecube disk, yet u claim they would be 700mb like PC?


    remember PC demo's are bloated with junk these days, size isnt a excuse
    a 2gb game 7years ago, would have a 50mb demo
    2gb game now, well 500mb

    Sounds interesting, I haven't got any mail but it's probably because i'm in europe. And yes they really should do different channel for free stuff like trailers and demos. Of course we would need harddrive or stuff.

    Yeah once SD Card support is added, demos should be possible.
